    When a finely wrought silver sleigh figurine turns up in her thrift shop, Lori Shepherd recognizes it instantly. It was the object that mesmerized the sweet but very poor nine-year-old Daisy Pickering at Sproggton Manor, the bizarre Jacobean house-turned-museum Lori recently visited with her twin sons. Hoping to avoid any real commotion, Lori decides to speak with the museum curator, who turns out to be oddly uninterested in the theft. But there’s not much that could be done anyway for the Pickerings seem to have come into some money and moved to Australia.

    Story

    I'm a fan of this series, but had never tried an audiobook version, so was looking forward to it. When the narration started, the voice was so odd that I thought my iPod had accidentally switched to the wrong speed. It is too unnatural and annoying to be a human reader, and I'm convinced that somebody thought the listeners wouldn't be able to tell the difference if they saved money by having a voice simulation instead of a person. Think of a perky female Stephen Hawking. Just shoot me.

    I can't really review the book because the narration is too irritating and distracting to continue. I'll enjoy it later in print.
