Suspense, a little romance, a touch of paranormal…Photographer Kate McGuire hopes for a little fun in her life when she joins a parapsychology experiment - visions of murder aren't part of the plan. Then her eccentric friend Venice, a complication all by herself, leaks the story to a reporter, and Kate's life turns upside down. The police don't take her seriously, but the murderer does. Kate's distrust of the press causes her to clash with the one person who can help her - the skeptical reporter who got her into trouble in the first place. Now it's up to Kate to find the killer before anyone else dies.
This is the first audiobook in the McGuire Women psychic series; each audiobook features a different member of the family.

This was an involving story, and I enjoyed the narration very much. I sometimes had a little trouble telling characters apart but quickly understood as the scene continued. Kate, the main character, is a little annoying in a good way for a character. The way she constantly resists John the love interest made the personal tension interesting as the larger mystery plot unfolded, I liked that. And also Venice (a character in the book) is a hoot. Good writer, good narrator. Glad I gave it a chance.
Definitely among the top and most entertaining!
I love the visions that Kate lived through - very realistic, yet spooky. The element of water/trees was revealed very nicely in the end when the body was found, in a unique and fascinating way. I also loved the scene when she broke into the villain's house, there were some very tense moments!
Jodie was outstanding - all of her voices were so unique. I think I particularly loved her Venice voice - that character was written beautifully and she played her well. Kudos to both author and narrator!
Absolutely! But then again, I wanted to savor it, to make it last. So that made it perfect to listen to on morning walks and driving to and from work. Delightful!
Ms. Vidler is a very talented writer, whose prose flows smoothly and whose dialog feels natural and real. I kept wanting the main character, Kate, to get "with it" and use digital photography, since she still developed film in the darkroom, but I thought perhaps the book was written before digital was widely available. I'll forgive Kate that! LOL. But I really enjoyed the tension, the suspense, the local color, the wonderful characters, and the satisfying ending. Thank you, Ms. Vidler, for another great listen!
