This was a week of sales of first books so I thought I'd try a few new series. I'm so glad I chose this one. Once long ago I read Hart's Death on Demand books. After a couple of years I got tired of them and very nearly passed this book up because of that. This book just made me feel happy. Granted I was completely wrong about whodunit, carrying my hope for the murderer almost to the end, but that's nothing new. This just felt very satisfying. True, it's a cozy, but to me that's a good thing. I often need a cheering book and this fit the bill. I can't wait to read the next two, then I'll have a new series to add to my books to look forward to.
I love Carolyn Hart books but hesitated reading a book with a ghost as the main character. Thought it would be just a little too strange. What a pleasant surprise I had. The character is funny and the concept of a ghost not too far out to be pleasurable. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to Bailey Ruth's next adventure.
As an artist busy with my hands and eyes I had to give up reading. Then audio books came into my life and I am back to over 200 books a yr.
I think so.
The narrator did a good job on the accents, voices and emotions. But it was way to slow for me and almost gave up on the book. So I put it on my Kindle and raised the speed to 1.25 and then I could continue. There was a lot of loud sucking breathing in before much of the dialog.
When Whiggens finally decided to help.
I almost didn't buy this book because I didn't care for Carolyn Hart's Death on Demand books I read (way too many notations of way too many books). But I enjoyed this story line. I do think the title is misleading calling it a ghost not an angel. The ending was very good and made the time I spent reading the whole book worthwhile.
Old, tired member of the sandwich generation. Waiting to just get to heaven!!
I feel like I have met a new friend in Baily Ruth. I loved this book. It was nicely intertwined, full of mystery and Baily Ruth found some family members. Another go to series for me. It is just a comfy mystery. This series is worth the credits! I don't think you will be disappointed.
The performance exceeded my expectations! The story was a little slow, the characters needed a little more depth. But overall I truly enjoyed the performance and the end was a surprise.
I really enjoyed this book. It was s fun, easy listen. The narrator was great. She did other voices nicely, and kept my attention. Great storyline. Loved the main characters. Off to listen to book two in the series!
I am a long time reader of Carolyn Hart and this new character and series does not disappoint! Can't wait to read/hear more!
This is a fun read - enjoyed it. I listen to a lot of my recorded books while I'm walking - so I don't want anything too heavy or depressing.
This is a fun "light" mystery - such as you find in the "Dog On It" stories of Chet and Bernie.
The best character in the book is the main one - Bailey Ruth (the ghost who is not a ghost!). She is fun loving and very much into fashion.
Don't think this would translate to the screen.
An easy fun listen.
This series was just so much fun to listen to. Family friendly as well. I loved the character's antics.
