I am a fan of Kat Green. I love her twisted creepy stories. I also love listening to Lesley Dessalles narrate. I love how her accent just brings more to a story. This story grabbed me right away and did not let me go until the We hope you enjoyed this program. I love ghost and haunted house books, Kat really brought it with this book. This house is filled with multiple ghosts and Kat even gives the story of almost all of the ghosts in the house.

In the book Kara Tate buys a old house to settle in. Almost immediately strange things being to happen. Even though she is terrified she cannot stand the thought of leaving the house empty but also cannot sell the house and let it be someone else's problem. The longer she stays the more she learns about the Davenports and their awful fates. The Davenports were the original owners. It is up to Kara to put the Davenports and all the other ghosts to rest.

For the lucky among us, life is what you make of it, but for Dixie Wheeler, the theme music for her story was chosen by another long ago, on the day her father butchered her mother and brothers and then slashed a knife across his own throat. Only one-year-old Dixie was left alive, infamously known as Baby Blue for the song left playing in the aftermath of the slaughter. Twenty-five years later, Dixie is still desperate for a connection to the family she can’t remember, so when her childhood home goes up for sale, Dixie sets aside all reason and moves in.

Ashley Fontainne & Lillian Hansen bring the ghosts of small town life in the 1980's back to haunt us in this book. I was raised in Doodahville actually Douglasville myself so I know all about small town life during the freak show of the 1980's. Georgia and Arkansas aren't much different from what I read in this book. Rebecca Roberts does a great job of narrating this book and bringing this book to life. The book itself takes you through several genres humor, mystery, coming of age and more.

After the death of Kassandra (Kee) Lawson's Great Aunt the family decides to pack up and move to a small town in Arkansas. The culture shock is quite hard to deal with along with leaving the only life Kee a senior in High School has known. Life in California where Kee was raised is a whole nother world to life on the back roads of a small Southern town. You get a picture of Kee's life in California to really make you understand the difference between big city and country life. You get to meet the family along with Kee, some are likable some you would like to punch in the face, Hmm, sounds like real life. There is a mystery involved as well. This book really has it all and is a easy to listen to, I am sure to read it would be just as good.

After two weeks of searching, I found the seven-year-old I'd been hired to find too late. His body broken and discarded. Dead. My boss doesn't want me to hunt down his killers. It's too dangerous. But the Pacific Northwest Pack steps in, hiring me to bring the bastards to justice. Turns out the kid was half shifter. And shifters don't abandon their own. In a search that takes me through the maze of shifter hierarchy and the depths of the paranormal underworld, these killers underestimate how determined I am to mete out their punishment.

Danielle Annett really brought it with this book. I read many reviews on this book and some of the clan names and the virus and stuff may be like other series by other people but the story line itself is totally different and I enjoyed it. I couldn't help but to keep listening. Nicole Poole is the narrator and she does a great job of bringing this story to life for us as well. Her voices were top notch and the expression and energy gives the characters and story in general was awesome. The book brings together humans, shifters, vamps, mystery and murder.

After the awakening, where humans and supernaturals were brought together a Shifter child is brutely murdered and our main character Aria who has the ability of pyrokinesis is out to find the killer. She is partnered up with her friend James who is the hunter for the Wolf Clan, yep he is a Wolf Shifter. She also gets a new neighbor who turns out to be more than just a neighbor. A missing mother appears. more people are murdered and Aria ends up looking to the clans for protection and help. I don;t want to say a whole lot about this book because I don't want to give away to much. Each part is in the end intertwined.

Now I was not the most thrilled with the abrupt end. But than again this is just book 1 of a series. I am hoping my questions will be answered in other books of this series. The story did end the current case but left some wide open questions with little tidbits from the book. Like her Mother. What's up with that? I need to know.

I started this book right after I left my house in Central Florida and it ended 20 minuted from my destination in Southern Tennessee. The book really helped the miles fly by. I was very engaged in the story. Even my 11 year old Grandson in the back seat was listening while playing his video games. i did not know he was paying attention until the story ended and he asked is it over. The book was not scary so it is was ok that he was listening. The book is more of a mystery that involve ghosts.

I have read and listened to other books by Mona Marple and really love her writing style. She brings the living and the dead together and brings an awesome story. Raquel Beattie narrated this book and really kept the story interesting and moving.

In the book Connie is a small town medium, she sees the ghosts around town and people of the town go to her to keep in touch with their deceased family members and friends. When a member of the town with a shady past is killed during a party where the live and dead are both invited Connie, the deceased towns Sheriff and Mayor try to solve the murder as their is no police force at the minute in Mystic Springs. The murderer in the end was kind of shocking so I won't be giving away more of the story.

I have have the Nannie Doss stories before but never to the lengths that Ryan Green tells them in this book. I did not know she killed 2 of her Grandchildren and her mother. I knew about killing her kids and her husbands and her mother in laws.

Ryan is my favorite True crime Author and Steve White does an amazing job or narrating this case.

On May 2, 1970, a DC-9 jet with 57 passengers and a crew of six departed from New York's JFK International Airport en route to the tropical island of St. Maarten, but four hours and 34 minutes later, the flight ended in the shark-infested waters of the Caribbean. It was, and remains, the only open-water ditching of a commercial jet. The subsequent rescue of survivors took nearly three hours and involved the coast guard, navy, and marines.

ALM Flight 980 was the first and only airplane to be open-water ditched of a commercial jet ever. On May 2, 1970 the flight was landed in the ocean just 35 miles from its diverted destination. There were 57 passengers and 6 crew on board heading for St. Maarten from New York’s JFK International Airport. The plain had been in the air 4 hours and 32 minutes when the Captain made the call to land in the ocean. It is unknown if he would of tried making that last 35 miles if the outcome would of been disastrous.

This book is so well written if takes you back in time to the airplane itself. The book is told not from the Authors point of view but from everyone involved that day. I love that there are reenactments in the book. They really make you feel like you were there. The research taken to make this book is outstanding.

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity - which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person stark-raving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.

I have listened to or read every book in the Charlie Davidson series. I was hooked on this series before the end of the 1st chapter in the first book. Darynda Jones is an amazing author, not only with this series but other books she has written as well. I am sad to see this series come to an end. I feel like Charlie, Reyes, Cookie, UB and the rest of the characters are like old friends who are moving to Mars, so I will never hear from them again. There is always hope for Beep to get a series in the future though. The ending to this book was not what I expected at all, and I can't say I was thrilled with it, but the story leading up to the end was great as per usual with this series.

Lorelei King is an amazing narrator and I think if another person head been the narrator it would not have been as great. I love how she portrays each character in the book especially Charlie. I love the life she breathed into her with her telling of all 1 books. Charlie is kind of a smartelick and Lorelei brings it. You can feel all the emotions good, bad, fun, and danger filled in all 13 books. It's like Darynda wrote these books for Lorelei to narrate. They are the perfect team.

I would love to see this series become a movie or television show. The whole series must be read in order or you may be a bit lost, t is a series after all and and one book picks up where the last left off. In this book Charlie was banished for eternity for bringing Amber back from the dead, her best friend Cookie's daughter. She has been gone 100 years when she is freed. but in earth time its only been 10 days. The battle between good and evil is ramping up and they must make sure Beep, Charlie and Reyes' daughter, is safe who will ultimately save the world as we know it.

Sorry no real spoilers, you must grab this book, actually the whole series. it is a must read/listen to.
