Publisher's Summary

When Maggie Finn travels to Florida's Southwest Coast, she expects to find a beach, sweltering heat, and loads of retired people. What she gets is a half-eaten physician, a prophetic seagull, a bodyguard, and events that could transform her life forever.

Maggie was tasked with moving her parents into one of those mega retirement villages. In her late 50s, divorced, and working as a newspaper columnist, she long ago surrendered her dream of being a "real" reporter. Now, confronted with dead bodies, a kidnapping, and the mob, she'll have to pull those long-forgotten investigative dreams out of mothballs just to survive. With the help of a rock-and-roll DJ who spins '40s records, a cross-dressing United States senator, a New Age ex-cop, and a single, Jewish Cuban detective, she discovers the answers to a number of questions. Do seagulls smoke pipes? Can marijuana cure a curmudgeon? When is an Indian not an Indian? Can a middle-aged grandmother get a date? But the biggest question she faces is: Will the forces that have her engulfed be her undoing, or are they proof that it's never too late to start again?

    "Author and Narrator Deliver Quality"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Engulfed to be better than the print version?

    I loved the narration of "Engulfed." I had not thought that an audio book would grab my imagination as this book has. I hate to think what I would have missed had I tried to concentrate on reading the print version.


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

    I really enjoyed the story line and the adventure it took my on.


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

    This audio book pleasantly surprised me, especially after many years with audio books that have put me to sleep. Catherine LaMoreaux has a finesse and captivating personality that shines through in a way I image the storytellers of old would have used to share stories to listeners in many a fire lit room. Why don't they have such great narration of textbooks?


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

    If I only had the time to enjoy books in one sitting, "Engulfed" would have been one of my top choices to spend time listening to.
