Publisher's Summary

Abigail Sutton's beloved husband walks out one night, doesn't return, and two years later is found dead, a victim of a long ago crime. It's made her sympathetic to the missing and their families.

Starting her new life, Abigail moves to small town and buys a fixer-upper house left empty when old Edna Summers died. Once it was also home to Edna's younger sister, Emily, and her two children, Jenny and Christopher, who, people believe, drove away one night, thirty years ago, and just never came back.

But in renovating the house Abigail finds scraps of paper hidden behind baseboards and tucked beneath the porch that hint the three could have been victims of foul play.

Then she finds their graves hidden in the woods behind the house and with the help of eccentric townspeople and ex-homicide detective, Frank Lester, she discovers the three were murdered. Then she and Frank try to uncover who killed them and why...but in the process awaken the ire of the murderer.

    "A Great Mystery."
    What did you love best about Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition?

    I really enjoyed everything about it. The story was fast paced and I enjoyed trying to figure out who was the killer.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition?

    The most memorable was the kids. It hurt my heart reading about them!!


    What about Wendy Tremont King’s performance did you like?

    This isn't my first book narrated by her and as always she does a great job. She is so easy to listen to and has the right tone for each situation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I think it only took me 2 days to finish because I had to know what would happen next.


    Any additional comments?

    Scraps of Paper is such an emotional book at times because as the story unravels, your heart will break for those kids and what they were put through. It's a great murder/mystery and I love the setting too. Spooky is such an awesome name for a town!!! Can't wait to read the next installment in the Spooky Town Mystery.

    Story
    "Good, clean, fun mystery!"
    If you could sum up Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition in three words, what would they be?

    * I listened to the audio version of Scraps of Paper; and I was provided this audiobook by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.*

    I enjoyed this story about Abigail Sutton, a woman who lost her husband one night after he walked out to get cigarettes and never returned. Two and a half years later she learned he had been mugged, robbed, and left for dead. After learning what really happened, Abigail decided to change her life and move to a new town to escape her lousy job and empty apartment, and, of course, escape the pain of losing Joel, her husband. Then, Abby discovered the town of Spookie, and decided to explore it.

    Now, the real mystery began when she stumbled upon several tiny scraps of paper with messages, while fixing up the house. These were messages from the past, from two children -- previous residents of the house. Soon Abigail became preoccupied with hearing them and eventually she became a killer’s target.

    This was good! If you like things that go bump in the night and you don’t have an overactive imagination that will make you also begin to hear things in the night, then you’ll enjoy this as I did. Clean, good fun. Recommended!!

    I LOVED this book!I did not want it t end! Abigails husband leaves one night and never returns.Two years later his car and body are found and Abigail decides to start over in a new town.She buys an old house and all of it's secrets, scandals and maybe a ghost or two.
    Wendy Tremont King brings each character to life as the narrator.She was a perfect fit for this book.

    Where does Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of the best. The performance pulled me into the story.


    What other book might you compare Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition to and why?

    There is another book by the same author on Vampires that I liked very much.


    Which character – as performed by Wendy Tremont King – was your favorite?

    The main character. She was very believable and I felt very sympathetic toward her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she first moved into the house and started fixing it up. A personal fantasy is to buy a house out in the country and fix it up.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was fantastic and audible recordings are the best. I'm completely hooked on these recordings!

    "Great Story!"
    What did you love best about Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition?

    I loved how Abagail was able to solve the murders of so many people after 30 years!


    What other book might you compare Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition to and why?

    I don't have a book to compare this to & I don't like to compare books as if someone doesn't like the book I compared this story to, they will dislike this story without even giving it a chance, & that isn't fair.


    Which character – as performed by Wendy Tremont King – was your favorite?

    I liked 2 characters a lot. 1st is Abigail. I loved how she cared so much as to solving the murders How Abby tracked down every lead & kept going around town talking to anyone that might have known the deceased family. I also really liked Frank. Frank had known the deceased family 30 years ago & moved away. Since he had moved back & he listened, believed & protected Abby while helping her solve this murder story! I didn't like John Mason at all!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was that good.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very well written story. I loved the plot and all the twists & turns in it. The author, Kathryn Meyer Griffith did a great job at getting my interest & keeping it. What a great way to lead us into a murder mystery by using scraps of paper! The narrator did a great job too! With all the different voices, this book was very entertaining. It sure kept my brain active! The narration was flawless! Kudos to you both!

    This was an engaging and interesting book. However, the subject matter is very sad and serious. I don't think I will read the next book.

    "Not good."

    Poor writing, story was very cliche. Would not recommend to an adult. Maybe a middle-school reading level would enjoy it.
    The description on GoodReads was MUCH better than the book.

    "Things you find hidden!"

    Kathryn Meyer Griffith has written a wonderful mystery that catches your attention right from the start. Kathryn's story is suspenseful, mysterious, with many twists and turns along the way. A great story to add to your collection.

    Wendy Tremont King did a good job with her narration of the story. She really brought this story to life in a way you definitely won't get from reading it. Overall, a perfect 5 🌟 rating.

    Story
    "Twisty and creepy, yet sweet!"
    Where does Scraps of Paper, Revised Author's Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can't rank it, as it would be like comparing apples and oranges! Cliched, I know, but I listen to a vast variety of genres, and this doesn't fit neatly into any slot. I had warm fuzzies one minute, then chill bumps the next !


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the small town atmosphere. I grew up in a small town in New England, so I can totally understand not wanting to live in the city. This helped me empathize with the characters.


    What about Wendy Tremont King’s performance did you like?

    She did a great job with the narration. I especially liked her voice for the eccentric little old ladies!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Maggie, the village eccentric/secretly rich bag lady, thought she was Emily. It was so sad!


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book! I really did not see that ending coming!

    I really enjoyed this book, listened to it in 2 sittings which always bodes well for immersion. Wendy Tremont King does a nice job with the narration, her voices fades into the background appropriately and allows the book to shine through. The book is a nice balance of mystery, a touch of romance and was a nice pick me up story. I will definitely listen to other Kathryn Meyer Griffith books.
