    During a New Orleans Mardi Gras Ball, psychic entertainer Diana Racine touches the hand of a masked Cyrano de Bergerac and is instantly transported into the icy-cold body of a dead woman submerged in water. As Diana crumples to the floor, water filling her lungs, she hears Cyrano whisper that the game has begun. Diana has been called every epithet in the book: charlatan, cheat, publicity hound...and genius - all at least partially true. But convincing New Orleans police lieutenant Ernie Lucier that her vision of the dead woman is the real thing may be her hardest act yet.

    Ellis says: "Exciting, full of twists and turns!"
    "Worst book ever!"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better narrator, lose the horrible stereotypes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gwendolyn Druyor’s performances?

    No! This was a bad book and her reading, voice interpretations will give you nightmares.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is so full of dated stereotypes it detracts from the story. Please, Blanche? how dated and biased.

    Just days after her mothers sudden death in a freak accident, Calla is sent to spend the rest of the summer with her grandmother in Lily Dale, a mysterious town of psychics where nothing is really as it seems. But to unlock the secrets behind her mothers death, Calla must first accept her newfound gift. The longer Calla stays, the stranger things become and as her own senses begin to awaken, she wonders if her mothers hidden past could explain her death.

    Would you try another book from Wendy Corsi Staub and/or Jessica Almasy?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Wendy Corsi Staub again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Number one: a teenager from Miami should not sound like a valley girl from the eighties.


    Any additional comments?

    If I had listened to the sample I might have figured out this book is about a 17 year old. It is better suited for 13-14 year old girls. It is full of teenage angst...heart broken by first love (he broke up by text message), meeting a new boy but wait..my friend really likes him so I can't like him dilemma. And of course, the girl is supposed to be from Miami so I didn't expect a strong southern accent but, I didn't expect her to sound like a eighties valley girl. Seriously, if you are 13-15 years old you might like this book but to me it was a complete waste of a credit.
