    "Mystery, romance, and suspense"

    This is a great mystery story. It grabbed me from the beginning as Kris comes across a twenty-five year old murder that fascinated her. I was pulled along as she followed clues and became involved with the family. The story kept me guessing. The romance was just enough and didn't take away from the mystery.
    The audio was fantastic. The narrator did an excellent job. Very easy to listen to.

    "Highly Recommended!"

    Stacy Juba has a hit with Twenty-Five Years Ago Today! I was captivated immediately and looked for excuses to listen. The story has an easy flow and a natural progression, which made it very enjoyable. Ms. Juba’s characters are real and relatable. The story encompasses not only the mystery of the unsolved murder itself, but brings the listener into the personal lives and the backstories of the characters. It also has a sweet touch of romance. As I listened, I found myself following along with Kris (the lead character), trying to put together the clues and solve the case in my head. I thought I had it figured out; however, I was completely surprised by the ending. I did NOT see that coming! The book concludes in a very satisfying manner, as Ms. Juba doesn’t leave any loose ends to frustrate the listener, which I really appreciated. Erin Moon, the narrator, did an excellent job of reading the book. She was an asset to an already great story. I will be searching out more books by Ms. Juba and I highly recommend Twenty-Five Years Ago Today.

    "A great mystery that kept me guessing!"

    This was a great mystery that kept me guessing right up to the end!

    Kris Langley is a young editorial assistant, who works for the Freemont Daily News in Massachusetts. In addition to typing up obituaries and birth announcements, she scopes out interesting historical tidbits from the paper’s microfilms for the “Twenty-Five Years Ago Today” feature. She comes across an unsolved murder of a young woman named Diana Ferguson, whose body was found bludgeoned to death in the Freemont State Woods. Tortured by guilt in connection with her own cousin’s murder when she was just 12 years old, Kris is driven to solve this cold case and she contacts the family as well as the police in an effort to piece together the circumstances that led up to the crime.

    Kris is a great character, and I couldn’t help but feel sympathetic towards her. She is wracked with guilt over the death of her cousin, and she has never been the same since. When she contacts Diana Ferguson’s family, she is very compassionate and wants nothing more than to bring closure to the family and give them the peace that they so richly deserve. The many years of not knowing the who or why of the crime has tormented Diana’s mother, Irene, and Kris yearns to give her the finality that she needs. At first, Diana’s nephew, Eric, is angry at Kris for stirring things up and causing his grandmother to become hopeful again. He worries that she will be crushed when Kris’ digging will lead to what he believes will be more frustration and unanswered questions. As time goes on, Eric sees that Kris really does want to help and isn’t just doing this for the sake of making the headlines. There is a lot of chemistry between Kris and Eric, but their relationship progresses too quickly and complicates matters.

    Juba is a new-to-me author, and she delivered a story that held my interest and made me analyze the evidence to try to figure out who did it. The ending blind-sided me, and I love it when an author can catch me off-guard like that!

    Narrator Erin Moon is also new to me, and she did a pretty good job. There were a few awkward moments when she appears to nearly stumble over the words but catches herself and the result is a small pause in the narration. However, her pacing was good overall, and the slight inflections in her voice made each character distinctive.

    I received this audiobook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.
