Publisher's Summary

Next Up for Auction: Murder.

When auctioneer Wren Morgan begins cataloging the contents of the Campbell mansion, she's unprepared to find something that can't be appraised - a dead man. After the body turns out to be a criminal with ties to a recent jewel heist, Wren comes face-to-face with Death Bogart. A private eye and part-time bounty hunter, Death is searching for the stolen jewels needed to convict a murderer.

Death finds a friend and willing ally in Wren, but they aren't the only ones searching for treasure. Two ruthless men are also on the hunt, and they will do anything to eliminate the competition. To survive, Death and Wren must solve two mysteries spanning a century and a half and outwit a pair of cold-blooded killers.

    "WOW"

    Very entertaining, light and humorous. I laughed out loud a few times and listened straight through. The mystery part made you use your memory. Over all I am looking forward to the second story. I loved the main characters. I too am a Veteran with PTSD and there aren't many funny Veteran stories. THANK YOU FOR THIS GREAT STORY!

    "Fun Story."
    Where does Death and the Redheaded Woman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks up at the top for entertainment value. It moved fast, was really interesting and different. Hard to beat a story that starts out with a dead naked man in the house.


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

    Actually it's not a edge of your seat thriller. It's a fun, and unique cozy mystery with a little romance thrown in.


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

    I like Amanda Ronconi's narration, she always gets the essence of whatever she is reading.Good pacing, clear voice, no unnecessary pauses. Just flows along smoothly. She's great


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

    In fact I did and almost always do listen to a book in one sitting. That's the perk of an audiobook. You can do other things while listening. So no time is lost turning pages.With a great narrator like Ronconi, it's the icing on the cake.


    Any additional comments?

    I am hoping there will be a new book in this series which I hope will be a series. It really was a great listen. I am stingy with my 5 stars. There have been some new (to me at least) authors on Audible and hope many of them come out with new books. A fair number of them will rate a 5 star.

    "I'm glad I stayed with it"

    I almost gave up on this book because I thought the characters seemed silly and unrealistic. I'm glad I continued reading. The lead characters Wren and Death (pronounced Deeth) are fun, intelligent, and realistic. The story is well written, planned out and well paced. It was a great story and I look forward to the next book.

    Story
    "Great Book, Great Narration"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It really is a great story. Entertaining, and one of the most interesting heroes I've come across in a while.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She one of my favorite narrators. I'll buy an audiobook from an author I don't know (as was the case here) if her name is on the cover. That said, when she was doing the auction calls it was really painful.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the book and I'm looking forward to reading or listening to this author again.

    "Great Story with a twist"
    Would you listen to Death and the Redheaded Woman again? Why?

    I really enjoyed the story but I have to say I love the relationship between everyone in the story. I also like seeing a woman be the hero for a change but also the love and caring they both show each other. I do have to say I am a big Death fan. I felt so much emotion for him. I really look forward to the next one with the way we ended this book.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She always does a great job. I have enjoyed her story telling and she did a great job on this one as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I really did enjoy this book and it is worth a credit. If want clean fun excitement this is a book you will enjoy.

    "Lightweight, and not in a good way"

    The characters were one-dimensional, the sex jokes sophomoric, the gay stereotyping offensive, and the plot had holes big enough to drive a truck through. Really don't understand all the glowing reviews.

    "Enjoyable"

    If you've ever listened to Molly Harper with Amanda Ronconi narrating, then you will relate to this book. It's written like a Molly Harper story in my opinion, which is not a bad thing. Has it's share of humor along with a mystery unfolding. A rather predictable mystery at that, with all the clues easily read. An enjoyable weekend listen, but I didn't care for the cliffhanger. Although, it did seem to give you the feeling that this was unfolding as a series book, with the ending clarifying that suspicion.

    "Loved it - can't wait for book 2!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Death is endearing and sweet. Really all the characters are very likable.


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

    I love Amanda Ronconi! As always, she really adds depth and texture to characters.


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

    The book is generally funny and lighthearted but there are a few parts that will tug your hearts strings.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Molly Harpr, there's a good chance you'll enjoy this lighthearted intrigue. :)

    I enjoyed this book! I wish there were more in the series now but it isn't a far stretch to assume there are more to come.

    What did you love best about Death and the Redheaded Woman?

    I enjoyed the characters of the story and the mystery


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Amanda Ronconi?

    I am not sure, I had a hard time following the characters in thought at times it took a minute to realize the character had switched, I feel like this could have been easier to follow if the tones of the characters where a little more defined.


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

    Yes there is humor and suspense there are definite parts of the story where I just had to sit down and just get through moment of the character and hope that it turned out well for them
