A Fountain Filled With Blood

Nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks, Miller's Kill, New York is about as safe as it gets. That's why Episcopal minister Clare Fergusson is shocked when the July Fourth weekend brings a rash of vicious assaults to the scenic town. Even Clare's good friend, police chief Russ Van Alstyne, is shaken by the brutality of the crimes - especially when it appears that the victims were chosen because they are gay.

Publisher's Summary

Nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks, Miller's Kill, New York, is about as safe as it gets. That's why Episcopal minister Clare Fergusson is shocked when the July Fourth weekend brings a rash of vicious assaults to the scenic town.

Even Clare's good friend, police chief Russ Van Alstyne, is shaken by the brutality of the crimes - especially when it appears that the victims were chosen because they are gay.

But when a third assault of an out-of-town developer ends in murder, Clare and Russ wonder if the recent crime wave is connected to the victim's controversial plan to open an upscale spa in Miller's Kill.

But not all things in the tiny town are what they seem - and soon, Clare and Russ are left to fight their unspoken attraction to one another even as they uncover a labyrinthine conspiracy that threatens to turn deadly for them both.

    "A Very Compelling Millers Kill mystery"

    I am hooked on Julia Spencer-Fleming's Millers Kill mysteries!
    A perfect formula of not-too-cozy and not-too-grisly with a touch of romantic suspense. The second book is just as engrossing as the first one, with Clare and Russ working on another case while trying to avoid their mutual attraction to each other.
    Suzanne Toren's ability to bring the characters to life with her remarkable range of voices provides a very compelling listening experience.

    "Great Listen"

    Smart, funny, medium-grisly violence, well developed characters that are not at all perfect. Well narrated too.

    Story
    "Morality Murders in Millers Kill!"
    Would you listen to A Fountain Filled With Blood again? Why?

    I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these characters. Julia Spencer-Fleming lets you in - which is a rare thing in most authors. They're all still growing, learning, changing & evolving - which means never a dull moment!


    What other book might you compare A Fountain Filled With Blood to and why?

    The only other series that comes close is the Chief Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny.


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

    I really like her


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

    Make a Joyful Noise

    "My kind of story - not wild about the narration"

    While this is the kind of book I love listening to - interesting, relatable characters and a little action but not too much gore - I agree with those who say the narrator's dialogue for the main characters sounds growly (Russ) and hokey (Claire's Southern accent, which sounds a lot more Georgia than Virginia).

    But the story is good enough to make it more than bearable.

    Story
    "Disappointing Sequel"
    Would you try another book from Julia Spencer-Fleming and/or Suzanne Toren?

    There is a small possibility I would try another Julia Spencer Fleming book. I would never listen to another narration by Suzanne Toran. Her hokey southern accent for Claire was not fitting to her character and made her unbelievable. .Her horrible "gruff" voice for Russ detracted from his charavter.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Julia Spencer-Fleming again?

    If it were a stand alone book, or the first in a series. She did not have enough material for a sequel but she drug it out painfully long - lots of filler dialog that did not add to the story at all.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Suzanne Toren?

    Not familiar enough to say.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.It was certainly not as good as the first booki in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend.;
