    "A Ghost of a Chance"

    Other reviews have noted that they did not get the correct audiobook with their purchase; I decided to buy it and see for myself, because I like Bill Crider's books – and I figured I could call Audible and get them to fix the issue if it was still linked to the wrong file. I did get A Ghost of a Chance by Bill Crider, so any issue with the download has been fixed.

    The book itself was an enjoyable listen. I liked the plot, and the characters are well-developed and likeable. There's plenty of humor to keep you listening. This is something like number 11 in the series; the earlier books are not available on Audible, which is a shame, because it's been years since I read them, and I'd enjoy listening to them on my commute.

    I was ambivalent about the narrator, at first, but, overall, Guidall is a good reader for the series - although his characters do not sound like they're from Texas. He is also the narrator of the Longmire series by Craig Johnson, so at first I had to work to keep them separate in my mind, but it got easier.

    If you like the Longmire books, this is a series you would probably also like (and so is the Bill Gastner series by Steven Havill). Crider is from Texas and paints a great picture of small-town Texas life and law enforcement. I've already purchased several other audiobooks in the series.

    What would have made A Ghost of a Chance better?

    Not the book I signed up for so DON'T DO IT if you're expecting Crider narrated by Guidall!
