Publisher's Summary

Stepping her perfect Jimmy Choos into place beside Ben Gallagher’s faded Nikes, straitlaced Philadelphia lawyer Catherine Barrington is surprisingly unable to resist the disarming small-town mechanic’s charm. He’s one of the heirs to the vast fortune left by his eccentric grandfather Max, a bestselling horror writer, and she’s there to carry out Max’s last wishes. Routine enough…except that inheriting comes with a catch: None of Max’s heirs will get a penny until they’ve lived together for two weeks in the shadow-filled rooms of his mansion in the wooded hills near Lake Superior.

From beyond the grave, a letter from Max insists that his death was no accident, sending Catherine undercover - and way out of her comfort zone - to catch the killer. Posing as a cocktail waitress, Catherine soon finds herself trapped with the feuding clan at the sinister Nevermore manor. To save her own life, she’ll have to confront the murderer, as well as her growing attraction to Ben - a top suspect.

    "Definitely CLUE, definitely loved it.."
    Any additional comments?

    Always a good game and this was a really good book. Loved Ben and Catherine/Lexie. The secondary characters were great to. Absolutely loved Aunt Muriel, she was too, too funny. Cecilia (the sweetheart), Dylan (the drunk), Seth (the money hungry jerk), Jeremy (the ass), Igor (the butler,) and Trey (the accountant). All great additions to the book. I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say you can't go wrong with this book..
    The only thing I was disappointed with was the lack of sexual tension between Ben and Lexie. Never any thoughts or feelings of desire or lust but then there was sex! Nothing that led up to it, though.

    As to the narrator: I like Ms. Eby. Even though most of her men sound alike I'm ok with that. As long as the men don't sound like the heroine when they talk, it's all good.

    ********* SPOILER ALERT ******** SPOILER ALERT ********* SPOILER ALERT **********



    I couldn't believe by chapter 11 the most important and interesting pieces of the mystery was given.

    I mean the whole ghost thing should have been played out until the very end of the story because that along with the crime mystery really added to the overall intrigue, suspense, and entertainment of the story.

    The big reveal was such a let down because instead of a, "OMFG" reaction. It was more of a, "well that sucks" reaction. And that's the chapter 11 I'm talking about.

    I almost lost interest in the story but I always finish what I start. AND IM SO GLAD I DID, because the story definitely (well the mystery) became a lot more interesting!!!!!!

    Now I still have no idea why Ben was being so nice to his ex wife! I mean the B is touching him, talking about getting back with him, in front of Lexie ( the woman he just slept with and claims to care for) but says nothing, he didn't even push his ex away!!!! WTF was up with that?!?!?!

    That entire scene was just off and weird and still makes no sense to me!

    So, overall, it's a pretty decent read and keeps the entertainment value above par, plus the performance was excellent!!!

    "Great Romance Suspense"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book and loved Ben from the moment he was introduced! If we had a mechanic that lived up to my idea of him, I'd wreck my car every week!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Characters kept me engaged to the story and pulled me right in, as though I was in the story right with them.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    Kept me on my toes till the end! Was a great listen while I was at work! Several times I was so involved that people walked right up to my desk and I didn't know. Thank goodness for Headphones!

    "Wowza - I couldn't guess who done it !!"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book, it kept me guessing till the end reveal... The hero and heroine, sexy mechanic Ben and straight-laced Catherine, a lawyer, work together to try and find the killer and everyone is a suspect in the murder of Maxwell Windsor, but then the story takes a twist... A great suspense - who done it - story !! :)

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Good Who Done It Book"


    I had so much fun listening to this book. Personally, I think mysteries make great audiobooks, especially when there's a little romance thrown in. This one has that AND colourful, quirky characters and a big, old, dark mansion to boot. It was just so much fun.
    It is action packed with a great variety of characters.
    It has romance, mystery, adventure and excitement.
    And I must confess I didn't guess, "who done it"

    Tanya Eby was great with the narration of the story.
