This a good book, it kept my interest whereas any others just put me to sleep :)
love this writer we live in the same neighborhood so that added to my being interested in her.. I was even born in the building (used to be a hospital) she has her office in LOL. !!
A friend recommended this series to me as one of her favorites of the genre. The story seemed like it had some merit but the reader made it very hard to get into it. Even being new to the character, I didn't feel it was a good match. Maybe a better one to actually read rather than listen to...
.....the narrator was really, really annoying. This is only the second time in my listening career (10 years) that I stopped listening because of the voice reading to me.
Don't let the sample of the narration fool you like it fooled me---In the sample, I thought the narrator wasn't that bad...but boy, I was wrong. My words can't express the torture, but think of shades of Jean Stapleton/Edith Bunker with a scratchy throat and on helium...Actually, I don't know which was worse, the narrator or the main character. The "heroine" was so darn unlikable--bland, immature, self-consumed, and embarrassingly desperate just to name a few. I REALLY hated the fact that she knew who a child killer was but, instead of finding a way to let the police know without becoming a suspect herself because of her psychic gift, she just thought 'oh well' and went back to worrying over whether to wear the slut-halter or the pushup bra for her blind date. (The blind date where the guy caught her taking a "looky-loo" at his backside. Looky-loo??? Who says that???) And let's not overlook the GAZILLIONTH time the author used "Liar, liar, pants on fire" (UGHHH!!!) and the fact that said author was extremely inconsistent with her heroine's psychic ability. The story itself was terribly drawn-out and very, very boring.
A good story & a good 1st in series book. Definitely a mystery only for paranormal lit fans.
The narration is old school in that it's not a performance. Ms. Michaels reads to you as you would to yourself. That's ok, it was pleasant but it made me realize how spoiled I am by 'performances'. All in all, it was good enough that I'll try book 2.
The story is decent, but the narrator's voice does not match what I would expect for a young psychic. She sounds far too old for Abby as well as her sister.
These stories in this series are cute and interesting. The fact that the author is in real life a psychic adds depth and information to the story. The narrator's voice and inflection got on my nerves after a while. She's kind of like the voice of the teapot in the animated Beauty and the Beast with bad inflection.
this was an interesting book, could be a bit predictable at times, but a fun read overall, and i do want to continue with reading the series.
