    When Country singer Candi Starr is found dead along with two close associates in Nashville's esteemed West End, it proves to be just the beginning of a murder spree involving anyone close to the music superstar. This includes ghost hunter and psychic Fiona Alea, who, along with her handsome rock n' roll husband, Jimmy, head up a local paranormal investigative team known as NVP, or Nash-Vegas Paranormal. Soon Jimmy and Fiona find themselves on a roller-coaster thrill ride through some of Nashville's most renowned historic sites and famous haunts, where a gruesome discovery lies buried in the past.

    What disappointed you about Deadly Night: The Murder of Candi Starr?

    Ok, I'll admit in not far into this book, but I think it might be helpful for others to know that the misogyny of this author is coming through very clearly. I'm finding it very annoying to listen to the way he describes women and their behavior. The main character apparently loves and respects his wife very much, but the way he talks about others is nothing short of insulting. Authors can make you dislike characters without playing on so many ridiculous stereotypes.

    Even the scenes with his wife are skakk-worthy, but that may just be because I presently loathe the main character.


    What was most disappointing about Aiden James’s story?

    The author's writing.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The voice doesn't seem to fit the main character. Oddly wimpy voice on a guy who's supposed to be a "man's man", or at least fancies himself so. Also, Southern accents are ridiculously overdone.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Haven't found any yet, but I'll keep listening as long as I can stand it.

    When her eccentric aunt passes away, no-nonsense accountant Clare Cermac inherits more than just a small fortune. She receives the gift of communicating with ghosts. While Clare may not believe in spirits, it’s hard to overlook the shadowy talking dog appearing on her bed or spectral cowboys tipping their hats to her in the streets of Denver. And when she locks eyes with sexy - and living - Zach Slade, there’s certainly no ignoring him either.

    Would you try another book from Robin D. Owens and/or Coleen Marlo?

    I haven't read this author before, and I don't have a positive experience to outweigh this book, so, no.


    What was most disappointing about Robin D. Owens’s story?

    The premise of this book was so fun and could have really been developed into something memorable, but the writing was amateurish, the characters were not likeable, and those factors killed the story for me.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Ghost Seer?

    The overblown foils to show how poorly treated/superior the main characters are.


    Any additional comments?

    The romance component of this book was artificial and pushed on the reader. It created some really cringeworthy scenes, and ruined the story for me. Not hot.
