"Tishy's mystery thriller with a psychic twist introduces an engaging new heroine." (Publishers Weekly)
It sounded like it would be good, but plot was uninteresting and disjointed. The characters were boring. Was only able to get half through this before I gave up.
This was a very nice "easy listening" book. Authors writing style reminded me of Janet Evanovich. Fun enjoyable listen to a storyline that is not really plausible.
I am a big fan of Anna Fields and mystery books. This book wasn't bad but it just seemed too flat as an audio book. I think this was the kind of book that would be better read when one wanted extremely light reading.Like reading a mildly funny sitcom. It wasn't awful but Audible has so many much better books, even in the light mystery catagory that I could not recommend this one.
I like mysteries (particularly British ones, historical fiction and nonfiction, science fiction and fantasy.
I bought this book because it was a whispersync deal at a good price and because it was narrated by the late Anna Fields who I had heard good things about.
In the hands of a less skilled narrator I would have probably abandoned it in the middle when the story line seemed to lose focus.
A Boston cold case detective consults with a psychic about the murder of a prominent Bostonian's son that he himself had investigated decades before. A man was arrested and convicted but there are doubts about his guilt. Meanwhile Reggie, the psychic, a divorced former corporate wife, is brought by a realtor to check out a house that the new owners thought was haunted.
It felt like this was not the first book in the series but I checked on both Fantastic Fiction and Amazon and couldn't find a prior book-- there is a later one. While I have read books where the author deliberately made it seem that there had been prior books, this one made me feel a little off kilter. There was just too many loose ends like the person that Reggie was always waiting to hear from and the biker with whom she is co-parenting a beagle.
I might pick up another book by this author if it was the right price or a loan but I wouldn't go checking for her books.
