    An extraordinarily beautiful Amish woman, a dangerous femme fatale, is the central figure in Linda Castillo's Her Last Breath, a story that reveals a dark side of Painter's Mill and its seemingly perfect Amish world. A rainy night, an Amish father returning home with his three children, a speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere. What at first seems like a tragic, but routine car accident suddenly takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental.

    I thoroughly enjoyed "Her Last Breath". What I didn't enjoy was the spoiler in the descriptive! I purchased this audio book because I've listened to the others in the series. I intentionally avoided the synopsis because, too often, too much is revealed. I was halfway through this one - downloading part 2 - so thought it was safe to read the summary. Wrong!Who writes and edits these? I just don't get it. Though I certainly suspected the outcome, I like the "... is this the bad guy/girl...?" "... I think the author is trying to get me to think this.... but, I think...."After reading the summary, there was no thinking anymore, no mystery anymore. It was all right there in the opening line. The big reveal held no surprise.So again, great story, love this series .... I've learned my lesson, but I'd love to be able to read a book summary without worrying about knowing the ending before starting a book.

    What disappointed you about Guilt?

    I didn't buy "The Purity of Vengeance" on Amazon.uk. I bought it here, I was thrilled when I saw a new book in the Dept Q series... didn't need to read the summary, just bought it. Then as I got ready to download it, I read the the synopsis and thought it sounded awfully familiar! There should be something in Audible's database that detects a purchase like this. Yes, I was able to return it, but why waste my time?!


    What other book might you compare Guilt to and why?

    Um ... The Purity of Vengeance!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steven Pacey?

    Irrelevant


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I think my feelings are obvious at this point!

    It begins with a call one snowy February night. Lying in her bed, young Sylvie Mason overhears her parents on the phone across the hall. This is not the first late-night call they have received, since her mother and father have an uncommon occupation: helping "haunted souls" find peace. And yet something in Sylvie senses that this call is different from the others, especially when they are lured to the old church on the outskirts of town.

    If you could sum up Help for the Haunted in three words, what would they be?

    Unpredictable, interesting, good


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I wish the pacing was better. There were too many awkward pauses. Her voice is great, I had no issue with that (though it was strange listening to it right after the Divergent series) but the narrator would read a sentence like she was ending it, then come to the next word or phrase and keep going. It needed rehearsing or more read-throughs.


    Who was the most memorable character of Help for the Haunted and why?

    Sylvie

    Have you listened to any of Rebecca Mozo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Any additional comments?

    Who wrote the Publisher's summary? It's not an accurate description Of this story AT ALL. I don't want to have any spoilers in here, so I can't point out the discrepancies or ask the summary writer
