  • Loose Ends: A Mary O'Reilly Paranormal Mystery, Book One

    Story
    (97)

    Dying is what changed Mary O'Reilly's life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary's trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost's word just doesn't hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, don't think she's nuts.

    Karen says: "Great book bad narration."

    Absolutely love reading this collection. Very disappointed in narrator. Very flat, no emotion. Only got to about chapter 2 and had to stop. Will reread book again. Sorry

  • Crocodile on the Sandbank: The Amelia Peabody Series, Book 1

    Story
    (1473)

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    Carrie says: "Nice break from the usual-"
    "Stumbled upon this by accident."

    Would you listen to Crocodile on the Sandbank again? Why?

    Yes. Very interesting characters. Author make you have feelings for each one, good or bad. Listening to it again my feeling change some.


    What other book might you compare Crocodile on the Sandbank to and why?

    Set back in period time makes be feel I am part of a Christie Caper.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Narrator gives each part of a character, the feeling you could see the performance in your head.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I started listening to it at night. Love to hear someone read to me. Would stay up because story and delivery was Great. Kept me on the edge of the bed as it were. Love that the characters continue on in future books. Am a real Amelia Peacock fan now!
