Publisher's Summary

When Lee Barrett spots the same style oak bureau she once had as a child on the WICH-TV show Shopping Salem, she rushes to the antiques shop and buys the piece. Just like the beloved bureau she lost in a fire, this one has secret compartments. It also comes with an intriguing history: It was purchased in an estate sale from a home where a famous local murder took place. The day after the bureau is delivered, Lee returns to the antiques shop and finds the owner dead. The police suspect the shop owner's unscrupulous business partner, but Lee wonders if the murder is connected to her new furniture. At least part of the answer may be revealed through a mirror in the bureau; it's tarnished and blackened, allowing Lee to tap in to her psychic visions. Using this bureau of investigation, Lee may be able to furnish her policeman beau with the evidence needed to catch the killer - before the next one to be shut up is her.

    "What happened to the narrator"

    I have enjoyed all of the other books in this series but it seems the narrator has changed how they preform. The pattern of the speech was way off resulting in a awful listening experience. I had to speed it up just to get through this. Really ruined this book for me.

    "Odd Narration"

    This is fine, although the heroine calling her stomach her "tummy" is an example of some of the ways in which the characters seem silly, like grown up children. But I don't mind that much. What does detract from the book is the way the narrator speaks with an odd clipped cadence. She has a strange way of "lilting" a question, with the rise in the middle of a word rather than at the end. It's actually a good match for the somewhat childish characters, but I find it off-putting.

    I know this kind of observation is off-topic for a mystery novel of this type, but it's enough to bother me. I have listened to all of the books in this series, so clearly it doesn't stop me, but I'd never binge listen to them. There is too much here that seems discordant to me to be truly enjoyable.

    "Love the Witch City Mysteries"
    Would you listen to Look Both Ways again? Why?

    I have actually listened to all 3 books several times. Each time I pick up an additional tidbit that I missed earlier.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love River/Lee, Aunt Ibby/Mr. Pennington, Lee/Pete, Lee/Aunt Ibby and O'Ryan Is awesome.


    What does C. S. E Cooney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoy her narration, and feel the characters come alive while I am listening.


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

    I always laugh, especially with the antics of O'Ryan.


    Any additional comments?

    Love these books and can't wait for the next installment.
