    Story
    "Good but overshadowed by the Witchcraft series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of If Walls Could Talk to be better than the print version?

    I really like the voices of the narrator, but I think reading and listenings can't be compared. Listening you receive the story and the interpretation of the narrator, while reading the interpretation is up to the reader.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the rythm


    What about Xe Sands’s performance did you like?

    The different voices for different characters, especially the male characters. I usually find this a critical marker for a narrator and Xe Sands does a terrific job.


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

    It made me chuckle a couple times.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a bit too many male characters to keep track of.

    "Very Enjoyable Listen"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes I would, it's fun and flows nicely and Xe Sands is a wonderful narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Juliet Blackwell? Why or why not?

    Yes, have listened to all the Witchcraft Mysteries, and now listening to all the Haunted Home Renovation series. Juliet Blackwell has a great sense of humor.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Xe Sands?

    Oh yes, she is wonderful

    Story
    "Too many characters"

    This is the start of a paranormal amateur sleuth series filled with ghosts, unknown villains, and a great heroine who works "in the trades". Loved the book and the author but there were too many characters and especially the investors because we did not know who they all were up front. I kept getting them mixed up and had to back peddle. However, that said and is why I gave it a four and not a five, I would recommend the book.

    Story
    "Who knew murder could be so much fun!"

    I love Juliet Blackwell's writing style. Her main characters always are polite and thoughtful with a dash of humility. Mel is no different she's a smart confident woman (although she doesn't know it) working in a man's world. After reading this book I immediately bought the next. If or when your looking for good clean fun stop right here.

    "Read it right"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator tried to change voices for the characters and it just sounded stupid.


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

    Have not listened to Blackwell before this book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointed

    "The start do a beautiful series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Heck yes, because the main character is a stand up person who is trying to find herself after divorce and moving in with daddy.
