Publisher's Summary

Black Friday - the official opening of the Holiday Shopping Season - and Patrice Marcum is stuck in the middle of her local superstore with a crying infant, a near hysterical desire to just abandon the diapers and milk she desperately needs, and the snowstorm of the century dumping a half-foot of snow on the parking lot outside. She needs a miracle.

The little old lady seemed sweet, but there was no way Patrice was going to leave three-month old Jeremy with a stranger. She looked outside at the snow-covered parking lot and saw yet another distressed shopper's cart topple over in the drifts. The old lady sensed her distress and volunteered to call a store employee to help watch over Jeremy while Patrice got her car.

The older gentleman, wearing a store badge with the name “Ron,” seemed too good to be true. What could be safer? Less than five minutes later, after brushing the snow off the van and driving across the crowded and snow-packed parking lot, Patrice pulls up in front of the store. Jeremy is not there. Pushing back panic, she rushes into the store and looks around. Jeremy is not inside either. She pushes through the line at Customer Service, the associate calls Ron on the intercom, and issues a Code Adam. When Ron appears and he's only seventeen years old, Patrice realizes the worst. “Oh God! They've taken my baby!”

Mary O'Reilly, Private Investigator, is decorating her office for the holiday season when the newly installed bell over her door jingles. She looks over to see a six year-old boy standing next to her desk. His name is Joey Marcum and he wants to hire Mary to find his baby brother.

Mary nodded. "Okay, Joey, but I'll want to work with the police on this one. Do you have any problems with that?"

Joey paused. "No, I guess you can talk to them."

"That'll be helpful."

"But you can't tell my mom you're working for me," he said, "Promise?"

"Yes, I promise."

Joey shrugged. "I don't think she'd understand, seeing that I'm dead, you know."

    "Great read"

    If you ever enjoyed the TV shows ghost whisper & medium then you will enjoy this book. Mary the main character has the ability to see ghosts and to help people pass into the next realm. This story introduce an angle who she had never experience before to help her solve a mystery. There are actually three stories told in this book Intwined and totally interesting. Murder mystery and romance.

    "Cute"
    Would you try another book from Terri Reid and/or Erin Spencer?

    I would possibly read another book by Terri. I didn't really enjoy Erin's narrating.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I like thinks that are paranormal but this was too cutesy.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Voices just okay. Too many she said he said.


    Do you think Good Tidings needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I am sure it already does.


    Any additional comments?

    Kinda predictable so that made it a bit slow.

    Narrator does better singing than performing. Some cheesy parts. Overall not bad. Giving it one more shot in the series before I give up on it.

    "Intriguing premise but over sweet in spots"

    I enjoyed this book and now must read the next one. This book sets up the next in the series! I probably wouldn't read the next book if I weren't curious about the outcome. I didn't dislike this book,but I didn't love it either.

    "Not What I Had Hoped"
    Would you try another book from Terri Reid and/or Erin Spencer?

    I will try one more because sometimes you just have a miss.


    If you’ve listened to books by Terri Reid before, how does this one compare?

    I liked the first one better.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Not she is fine.


    Could you see Good Tidings being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This book was too "formula" for me and lacked the suspense of the first book. I guessed the villain within a minute of his introduction. I hope the other books are not like this. I almost "put it down" but continued to the end to see if it was in some way redeemed. It wasn't.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm on book 5 in this series I love all the books. Terri Reid did a great job. There great mysteries. There's a love story - mystery without fowl language and sex. There just something you can really enjoy and listen anywhere. I love her books. The reader does a great job with the story. I hope there will be many more of her books

    Story
    "A good read!"

    I must be a dunderhead, I only rated the first novel two stars and it has been a long time lag between reading the books. Well, I am glad I did not take my rating seriously. I really enjoy this series. It is a very engaging. It is not a read that has you breathless or cringing in suspense. It is a mystery with an interesting story.

    There will be a few gun shots, and if Terri follows her formula, the chief will be the one receiving the shots. Of course there are ghost, that is why we all picked up this story. There always be a ghost who is unaware they no longer have to pay taxes. There will be a chase, chasing the offender, being chased by the offender or some kind of ghost chase. There is no overt cussing or sex, so you put it down without fear that a preteen or teen will pick it up and read it.

    Mary is an enjoyable character who is not a butt kicking woman on a mission to rid the world of all evil. Rather, she is a very pleasant woman of Irish descent who just happens to see ghosts. She comes from a loving family of law enforcers who loves her fiercely. She has arranged her life were she can still pursue her law enforcement skills while not being overwhelmed with ghost.

    In this story you do not get an opportunity to hear from her BFFs, but you do get to meet her family. If you saw a tv show called, The Medium, this is very similar to that. I read one comment which feels that the books have a “formula” or predictable story line. Well, yeaaa. That is the same thing with many series. Yes, I expect Bradley to get shot, the question the circumstances in which in happens.

    For this story the two little boys are the ones that caught my heart. It is the ending in this story, that I am listening to the third book in the series now.


    If you ask yourself why I did not give the book all 5 stars? Because I am a kick butt woman with the power to blow things up. :)

    "Not for me"

    I don't want to say that this is a bad book. It just wasn't the book for me. The narrator didn't help it either.

    Story
    "A couple of niggles that detract from the book."

    Overall these series of books are right up my alley.

    Despite a couple of niggles I had with the first book I decided to give the next two books in the series a go. Unfortunately there are still a couple of niggles.

    The first is the narration. It's stilted at times, and pretty much delivered in the same tone throughout. But that said, although it's not the best, I've certainly heard worse out there, so I got through it in the end. Just be wary though and check the sample narration before you decide if you can tolerate it.

    However, the biggest problem I had was the references to some of the storylines in the previous book. If you haven't listened to that book then those references are hard to put into context as they don't seem fully explained.

    If that continues to be a feature, then it might very well put me off buying any further books in the series.
