    Dr. Gregory is starting to feel settled, hopeful that a long period of upheaval in his private life is behind him. He refocuses his energy on his clinical psychology practice, where a beguiling new patient captivates him, but the interlude of calm doesn’t last. Devastating fires are threatening Boulder. Alan’s dear friend Diane is showing signs of a long-simmering emotional collapse. And Alan’s most pressing fear - the exposure of a dangerous secret - has become a peril too real to ignore.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book. Even though I have read all the Alan Gregory books this one had lots of twists and turns - not same old, same old that's for sure!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I have to say that although I have read all the Alan Gregory books, this is the first one I've listened to and I didn't feel that the voice of the narrator matched the Dr. Gregory I had in my mind. The narrator's voice sounded much older than Dr. Gregory is in the story. It threw me for a bit until I got used to it.

    When a strapping young Jack MacBride arrives in Finch to wrap up his late uncle's affairs, heads turn in the sleepy English village. But when Lori volunteers to help Jack clear out his uncle's overgrown garden, they discover something even more shocking than a stranger turning up in Finch. After Lori laughingly tosses a coin into the garden's old well and makes a wish, she is baffled to find that the wish seems to have come true. Word spreads, and the villagers turn out in droves to make wishes of their own. But as they soon learn, one person's wish is another person's worst nightmare.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Teri Clark Linden?


    Did Aunt Dimity and the Wishing Well inspire you to do anything?


    Any additional comments?

    the accents were not done well and really took away from the story.

    Spanish Phase 1, Units 11-15 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation.

    Patrick says: "Finally, a resource I can rely on to learn Spanish"
    "Lessons 1-10 great - after that too difficult"

    What disappointed you about Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15?

    The verbs are very difficult to understand and not explained at all. I've listened to 11-15 five times and still can't move onto 16. It's very difficult to tell if the sound being made is a "b" sound or a "v" sound, even with very good quality earbuds.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The verb conjugations need to be explained better.
