Publisher's Summary

Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core - and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

Haunted by the lingering spirit of the little girl, Kiernan is compelled to aid in the search for her killer. The chance to get closer to the enigmatic Matt is an unexpected bonus. Although Kiernan's been betrayed by people who turned out to be more interested in his fame than in himself, with Matt he's willing to risk his heart. As the two men grow closer, Kiernan helps Matt rediscover that life offers no guarantees - but love offers a reason to believe....

    "Skin Crawling"

    This was a book filled to the brim with suspense; I did not know what to expect next. Jack LeFleur made the characters come to life. I highly recomend this audiobook!

    "Sexiest Narrator on Audible"
    What made the experience of listening to A Reason to Believe the most enjoyable?

    The narrator, OMG what a voice!! This was a wonderful love story of two broken hearts finding each other. Woven into it was a great suspense mystery. Loved everything about it and would love another with these characters. It also has one of the hawtest romance encounters I've heard in a while. The narrator is superb!!


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

    Yes.

    "Addictive listening"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It was very hard to take a break from listening to this excellent story. Not only are the intimate scenes hot and fulfilling, but there is actually an exciting, intriguing and mysterious thriller story as well... yes a STORY! I enjoyed it even more because of this. But lets not forget, the sex scenes are everything you could hope for! Because the characters are carefully built up to this point, it is even more of a pay off.

    "All-around Great"
    Where does A Reason to Believe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the best!


    What other book might you compare A Reason to Believe to and why?

    I do not compare one novel with another. If the writing isn't unique, it isn't a great read, in my book.


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

    Jack LeFleur has a fabulous voice, and his oral interpretation is among the best. I think I'm in love.


    If you could rename A Reason to Believe, what would you call it?

    The title is the author's call, not mine, and I would not even attempt to second-guess the author.


    Any additional comments?

    This one kept me listening from beginning to end. Then I read it a second time.

    "Solid mix of romance and mystery"

    i would rank this in the clear top tier of male/male romances. The characters are likeable enough without being perfect, and there is an actual plot around which the romance grows. I admit I prefer straight-forward books (suspense, historical, mysteries, whatnot) that have a male/male relationship rather than romances with a touch of a plot.

    So this one really was my cup of tea.

    The writing is of good quality and the narration was very well done too, as Jack LeFleur always professionally delivers.

    "A Reason To Believe"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Reason to Believe to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version. However, I .love audio books so I would probably like the audio book better.


    What other book might you compare A Reason to Believe to and why?

    It is a paranormal book. I haven't read another book like this. I liked the character Kiernan a lot. Matt the cop seemed very angry and needed to be handled so carefully!


    Which character – as performed by Jack LeFleur – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect and it was believable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I thought the narrator did a good job.

    "great narrator"

    A really good audibook. Excellent book to start the month with!

    This book starts of with Detective Matthew Bennett getting a missing child call. After the police has a taken a look around, Matt hears a little girl. He follows her voice and eventually her to discover her body and is quickly placed on administrative leave by his superiors. They also order him to see the department psychologist because they think he is losing it.
    See, 15 months ago, Matt lost his work partner of 3 years, who also was his romantic partner. He never took time off to properly grief, so Matt's vision has to be the grief he is feeling. Only, Matt's sister in law and best friend Sheila thinks supernatural things occur and that he shouldn't dismiss what happened to him as crazy business. She takes him to see renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick and the two of them set off to solve the mystery of why the dead girl Abby chose to appear to Matt AND who hurt this little girl. It was definitely off the record as Matt was on leave and the medium is not part of the police department.

    The subject was a sad murder, but solving it became a form of catharsis for both Matt and Kiernan. Damage from the past has kept them from truly connecting with others, but their sisters (Shiela and Aidan) were the pillars that kept the guys erect.

    I love the way the story was written. even though it wasn't a love story, there was revelation and justice and love in this story. It kept me interested from page one until the end and I felt very satisfied at the conclusion. I would love a sequel to this one!

    "I am hooked."

    Very well written and narrated. A reason to believe is a perfect title and couldn't wait for daily commute to hear more. Story line reminded me of actual event that occurred about the murder of a little beauty pageant queen. And it would be great it Kieran and Matt returned to solve more murders or cold cases.

    "Oh my gosh!"
    Where does A Reason to Believe rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. I listen to a lot of books, but I don't write a lot of reviews. This book was gut-wrenching and endearing all at once. It was one of those books the compel you to just sit quietly for a moment at the end to let the story wash over you, and so decided I just had to make a recommendation.


    What other book might you compare A Reason to Believe to and why?

    It stands on it's own; I can't think of anything to compare it to.


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

    I have not, but I'd love to listen to more of his narrations. He has a wonderfully soothing voice, and I got carried away just listening to him.


    Who was the most memorable character of A Reason to Believe and why?

    For me, Kiernan Fitzpatrick was an excellent character. He brought the entire story together, plus his little quirks were terribly endearing.

    "Really interesting storyand great narration"

    I got this book specifically for the narrator and I wasn't disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed this "ghost" story and Jack LeFleur as narrator was again wonderful.
