Publisher's Summary

On a snowy Christmas Eve, a beautiful young mother goes out to buy a few last minute gifts and never returns....

....thirty years later, her daughter picks up her trail.

As the owner of an estate sale business, Audrey Nealon knows a lot about art, antiques, and the unlikely places old people hide their treasures. But the shabby home of an elderly widow holds alarming surprises: street drugs in the silverware drawer, a trunkful of jewels in the attic, and the distinctive ring Audrey's mother was wearing the night she disappeared. Believing the truth will bring her peace, Audrey relentlessly pursues clues to her family's troubled history. But each fact Audrey uncovers drags her further away from the love she craves, and puts her on a collision course with people more determined, more ambitious, and more dangerous than she can fathom. As the twist ending reveals, some truths are too awful to bear, and too terrible to share.

    Story
    "Loved it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Another Man's Treasure the most enjoyable?

    I've always liked a good mystery, and I love watching shows like Antiques Road Show and American Pickers. Combined? Best concept ever!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Voice-Wise, I'd have to say her father. Voicing a stroke victim must have been really hard, but the narrator nailed it. Especially with his speech steadily improving as he struggled to rehabilitate.


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

    Listening to a book can bring the characters to life in a way that just reading doesn't. It also forces me to slow down and really savor the story. Tedesco is an excellent voice actress, and I really enjoyed her work on this book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'd have to say the ending, when everything finally becomes clear. We finally find out what really happened, and Audrey can finally move on.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the unravelling of all of the layers of deception in this story. There was also some very poignant social commentary, especially in regards to racism and police. It was very well portrayed, and I wanted to note that. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Audrey is a Keeper!"
    Would you listen to Another Man's Treasure again? Why?

    Positively, Yes! There are interesting twists and turns to this mystery and Audrey and her assistants are a fine team to read and listen about.

    I am aware of how much a voice talent can add or detract from an audio book. That's why I tend to mention the narrator so often when I review Audible products.The story is the most important, but if the narrator pulls it off, that adds so much enjoyment to the listener. The reverse is true, of course.

    Janelle Tedesco was outstanding. She was able to realistically give characters of different genders and ethnicity believable voices and kept the action flowing in a way that keeps your attention.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The development of a "found" item which leads to personal history and the mystery to be solved. Is that vague enough? I avoid spoilers! lol


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The whole story as it evolved. The exploring of locations, finding treasures that tell the history of someone. The background of the characters.


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

    Treasures, hoarders and mysterious happenings...


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the reviews suggest there is an issue with language and sexual situations. I did NOT find that to be the case at all! Some milder, situation appropriate language and sexual interaction are there, but not to the extent to be offensive, in my opinion.

    This is a enjoyable listen and I much appreciate the opportunity to listen and review.

    Story
    "Engrossing and well-written mystery"

    I REALLY liked this book and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. This book is a really complex (yet completely followable) mystery with many facets to it. Adultery, murder, betrayal, political intrigue, etc. I honestly wasn't expecting to like this book as much as I did. The characters were really interesting, and were completely brought to life by the EXCELLENT narration of Janelle Tedesco. I don't think I've ever listened to this narrator before, but I'm hooked. Now I want to find everything she has done. And same goes for the author - now I want to read everything she's written. I love a mystery that isn't predictable and I really did not predict anything that happened in this book. If you're looking for a really well-written mystery, check this one out. I received a promotional copy of this Audible book in exchange for an honest review.

    "Entertaining"

    This was a very good story with a well developed plot and engaging characters. I particularly enjoyed the way Audrey interacted with the other characters and how she conducted her investigation. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries.

    Story
    "Good entertaining and unpredictable mystery."
    What did you love best about Another Man's Treasure?

    I was entertained by this book and didn't know what to expect next.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It kept me listening to find out who was bad and who was good and what really happened.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't have a favorite scene.


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

    Nothing extreme.


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy the twists in this book. I wasn't sure throughout the book who to trust and who was deceitful. Audrey second guessing herself and trying to figure out who to trust wasn't as overpowering and annoying as a lot of female characters in books. She was more realistic and didn't make me roll my eyes as a lot of lead female characters do.

    Story
    "Trash to Treasure Leads to Mystery Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Another Man's Treasure to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy audio much more than reading a printed version because I can multi-task while listening. I am very busy since I still work full time so I enjoy listening in the afternoons while catching up on my computer work. I also listen while I go on my daily walks.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This book had me from the title !! I love garage sales and have always thought of them as "treasure hunts." I go every weekend and I listen to audio books in my car. It's like having a bunch of friends riding along with me. The plot was so exciting and interesting that a few times I had to just keep riding in my car to finish a chapter. I never ever had a clue as to what was going to happen next. Totally surprising ending and I love it this way !!


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

    This is my first time that I have listened to Janelle but I am now hooked on hearing more from her. She has such a pleasant voice with just the right reflections at just the right time!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was really upset when the main character Audrey was mugged. I really get upset when I hear about someone getting injured in real life or in books. However, this scene is what leads up to the mystery and so I kept listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I was given this audio book in exchange for a review and I am very pleased to say that this book was a nice long one that kept my interest the entire time trying to figure out the mystery. I intend on asking for more of this series to see what else Audrey has been up to lately. I hope the next book is narrated by Janelle Tedesco also !!

    "Such a treasure to listen to!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Another Man's Treasure to be better than the print version?

    I would consider the print and audio versions equal to the other. They each have their positives for different people. That said, it was a huge plus for me that Janelle Tedesco did such a wonderful job voicing people of all different ages, ethnicity and sexes. She truly has a talent for this work!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Ms. Hubbard has a wonderful plot here! I think I know "whodunit", but I never do. Her stories are filled with intrigue, plot twists and a few red herrings.


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

    I have not listened to Janelle Tedesco before, that I'm aware of.


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

    I did want to listen to this in one sitting, but I couldn't so I listened to snatches here and there.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Hubbard writes a wonderful story and I have read every one of her books. I was so excited to listen to Another Man's Treasure on Audible because I think an audio book adds another level to an already great story.


    What I love the most about Ms. Hubbard's writing is how her characters pull me in right away, pretty much yanking me into the story and their world. Her characters are always well-rounded and very relatable. Some I like and some I don't, which is natural, but she always makes me feel like they are real, sitting in front of me, telling their story.


    Another Man's Treasure focuses on Audrey's estate sale business and how she proceeds after finding a ring that her mother was wearing when she went missing 30 years ago. Audrey is young and sometimes doesn't believe in herself, which sometimes leads to poor decisions, but she has a wonderful soft heart that leads her to help people even when others would turn away from someone else's problems. Her team add so much to the story and I loved that she was trying to help a troubled teen by employing him.


    Ms. Hubbard has written a wonderful book that will give you laughs, suspense and lots of time enjoying this book, whether you listen to it or read it. I highly recommend this author, so much so that once I read one book of hers, I was back on Amazon checking out her backlist and buying them one after the other.


    The narrator was wonderful and listening to this story added another dimension of enjoyment. It's been a long time since I listened to a book and I realized how very much I missed it. I'll be listening to more on Audible.


    I would like to thank the author for allowing me to listen to the Audible version of Another Man's Journey in exchange for an honest review.

    "WOW WHAT A TWIST!"

    I loved this book from start to finish. Everything about this book pulls you in. Audrey is a heartwarming character that is just perfect. I can't wait to read book 2 and more if they are as good as this one. It's one of those stories you never want to end.

    Story
    "Fun, and Surprisingly Gripping"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a fun, entertaining listen... until you suddenly find yourself hooked and craving more and more and more!Audrey Nealon owns an estate sale business — she and her two quirky assistants sort and sell the possessions of people who've died. Then one day, while cleaning out the modest home of Mrs. Agnes Szabo, Audrey comes across a one-of-a-kind ring that belonged to her mother — the mother who disappeared when Audrey was 3 and has never been heard from again.Audrey sets out to unravel her mother's story and finds herself coping with a racist (maybe) cop, a devoted (maybe) boyfriend, a rabidly political family, a father who hates her, a drug-dealing (maybe) assistant, a trunk of stolen jewelry, and someone who's trying very, very hard to kill her.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Secrets within secrets, betrayals within betrayals, make it impossible for Audrey to know for sure who's friend and who's foe — and kept me constantly wondering what was going to happen next.


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

    Janelle Tedesco's narration is superb. She nails Audrey Nealon's thoughtful intelligence, as well as her insecurities and moments of panic. Her character voices aren't a strong as her narration — the street-smart Black kid from Newark has a southern drawl, for example — but this didn't stop me from devouring the book every time I could make a moment to listen.


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

    I neglected far too many duties so that I could hear the entire book in just three days.


    Any additional comments?

    Another Man's Treasure was so satisfying that I'm reading S.W. Hubbard's next two Palmyrton Estate Sale books. When do we get Audible versions of THOSE??

    Story
    "A treasure indeed!"

    Years ago, I used to read lots of thrillers. Then I somehow got a taste for fantasy books and read (still am) mainly books in that genre.
    I recently returned to reading (or better listening to) thrillers again. The German ones were nearly all a disappointment, but the English ones I listened to recently have just been great.
    Another Man's Treasure is no exception. I loved every minute of it. Such great suspense, convincing plot, great characters, and a wholly surprising ending. I really thought I had figured it out long before the conclusion, but I was way off. There are lots of twists and turns, and there wasn't a single moment when I wasn't convinced by them, or didn't buy into them.
    I liked the language, too. No permanent swearing (which is always a downer for me), just perfectly normal speech, like actual people would talk. Although this is part of a series, there is no cliffhanger, for which I'm very grateful, because that is something I hate (and most authors nowadays end their books with).

    Janelle Tedesco's narration was just perfect. She brought all the characters to life, her pace was perfectly suited to the pace of the story, and it was an absolute pleasure to get lost in her narration.
    In fact, I was so drawn in that I couldn't fall asleep -- the story just kept me awake and listening until the wee hours of this morning.

    I can't wait to listen to the sequel, which I hope is already available in audio, cause my reading time is very limited.

    I got this audio book for free in exchange for an honest review, and believe me, if I'm not convinced, I say so, but this book just blew me away.

    "A great read!"
    Would you listen to Another Man's Treasure again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again because I loved the story and the narration is fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved all the action, mystery and suspense. Audrey got into some very dangerous situations which made the story very exciting.


    What about Janelle Tedesco’s performance did you like?

    I loved how she performed the characters. Even the side characters were performed extremely well. I especially liked how Jill's character was performed.


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

    Yes, this was a book I really wanted to listen to in one sitting. The mystery had me glued and guessing right to the end. It was very cleverly written and I loved all the family drama and suspense. This was a brilliant read; a mystery with a little sprinkling of romance. I will definitely by following up with the rest of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I received a copy in return for my honest review.
