The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks | [Josh Lanyon]

The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks

His romantic weekend in ruins, shy 20-something artist Perry Foster learns that things can always get worse when he returns home from San Francisco to find a dead body in his bathtub. A dead body in a very ugly sportscoat - and matching socks. The dead man is a stranger to Perry, but that's not much of a comfort; how did a strange dead man get in a locked flat at the isolated Alton Estate in the wilds of the 'Northeast Kingdom' of Vermont? Perry turns to help from 'tall, dark and hostile' former navy SEAL Nick Reno.

    "Loved it"

    The reader took a little to get used to, but I've noticed that's the case for me with most books I listen to. But once I was into it I loved it. This is one of my favorite books and being able to listen to it while doing other things is absolutely wonderful!

    Story
    "One of Josh Lanyon's best"
    What did you love best about The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks?

    The over all premise of the story. I so appreciate the how the relationship and sexual tension between the characters develops gradually with a growing love rather than a story where they jump in the sack in the first chapter. Makes it more real life and beautiful rather than just sexual and pornographic.


    What other book might you compare The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks to and why?

    I like all Lanyon's books! Gradually listening to everyone available on audible.


    What about Max Miller’s performance did you like?

    The change in his voice for characters is utterly amazing.


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

    Pretty much over just a few days, while driving, and exercising.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm almost through Mr. Lanyon's whole library. Keep em coming Josh!!

    "Super spooky and subtly romantic"
    Any additional comments?

    Series/Standalone: standalone
    Genre/sub-genre: mystery/romance
    Book Format: audio
    HEA/HFN: yes
    Relatable characters: yes
    Abuse/Rape: no
    Violence: yes, but minor
    Ratio of sex/plot: equal
    Well written/editor needed: well written
    Would I re-read?: YES
    Personal thoughts: I would love to know more about these characters after this story takes place. I love this book because of the heavy mystery plot, and the fact that the romance is subtle, but there. I love the two MCs, and the whole 3-D cast of interesting characters that go along with them. The narrator does a fantastic job getting everything right.

    Story
    "Cute, not my fav Lanyon book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read it yet but the audio was pretty good, my only problem being that I might need to read it to develop a better picture of what was happening as I got a little lost in some places, and I'm not sure if it was just the narrator's soothing voice making me space out.


    What other book might you compare The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks to and why?

    Definitely not a ghost story as some people seem to believe, it is for sure a spooky detective mystery, from the point of view of an asthmatic civilian.


    What does Max Miller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice cracks me up because of the way he voices some side characters. They sound so snooty I can't help laughing no matter what they are saying. I want to give him 4.5 stars just because I don't really like the way he tries to make his voice deep for Nick; it's just not working for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Eh.


    Any additional comments?

    Cute book, I'll probably get to reading it one of these days but probably won't completely listen to the audiobook again unless super bored.

    "Let the journey begin..."
    Where does The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As far as skill, it was very skillfully written but I don't have the urge to listen to it a second time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Josh Lanyon again?

    Yes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Nick sees the ambulance.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks and why?

    Perry. He's got a lot of heart.


    Any additional comments?

    The pace of the book was great, the story well done. The characters were real, very real in fact. The whole 'boy' with 'man' thing was starting to get creepy by the point when one is referred to as smelling of 'boy sweat', but otherwise, it was a good fun listen. The voice actor made the characters come to life and his wide range really did justice to the story. It has a lot of twists and turns that get wrapped up rather nicely. I'm glad I gave this one a shot after Darkling Thrush because it's a better book. I recommend it.

    p.s. I believe this is a non American author, we don't call 'our room' 'our rooms', we don't say 'what was he doing in my rooms', or 'my apartments', 'she went to her rooms', yeah, that was a bit distracting but once you get past that, it was good.
