Publisher's Summary

Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core - and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

Haunted by the lingering spirit of the little girl, Kiernan is compelled to aid in the search for her killer. The chance to get closer to the enigmatic Matt is an unexpected bonus. Although Kiernan's been betrayed by people who turned out to be more interested in his fame than in himself, with Matt he's willing to risk his heart. As the two men grow closer, Kiernan helps Matt rediscover that life offers no guarantees - but love offers a reason to believe....

Great!

I can't believe I haven't left a review the first three times I listened to this book. I love Kiernan and Matt. I would love to see them solving crimes in future stories. Ms. Copeland did a wonderful job describing the scenes with Abby.
Jack LeFleur's narration was excellent. He gave each character a distinctive voice and subtle Irish accents for Kiernan and Aiden.

Great story, fantastic narrator!

Seems ripe for a sequel, Ms. Copland. And, Mr. Lefleur, you can read to me anywhere, any place, anytime! Great job!

You did it for me.

Any additional comments?

You, Ms. Copland, found the male being with great insight. You found the simplicity of men and the depth of a man too. I do hope you continue to write with these characters. I look forward to reading your other work. Kudos to you!

Fantastic!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of A Reason to Believe to be better than the print version?

I bought the print version only cause it was cheaper than buying the audio version. I always planned to only listen to audio. I did end up reading a little bit of the kindle version, but I found that I missed having the voices, so I didn't like it as much and went back to the audio.

What other book might you compare A Reason to Believe to and why?

I usually dont' read mystery type books, so I can't really compare.

Which character – as performed by Jack LeFleur – was your favorite?

Kiernan. His inflection with the accent was awesome! That was the reason I couldn't read it, versus audio. I needed the voices. Just amazing!

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

I did not, but I listened to it quicker than I normally would an audio book.

Any additional comments?

I cannot say enough about the narrator. The book was good, very good. But for me, the audio version was so much better than I felt the written book would have been. The narrator was amazing!!!!

Paranormal Man-Love Mystery Fun!

A nice paranormal, man-love mystery that was exactly what I wanted. Somewhat fluffy, fun accents... The narrator was a definite asset for this book! I don't know if I would have enjoyed reading it rather than listening to it.

I may have guessed the 'bad guy' early on- but it started as a guess. Maybe I just got lucky, or maybe it was obvious all along. I'm likely to go with the first one. This was just one of those 'entertainment' books that totally fit the bill for what I was after.

My rating is more of a reflection on my enjoyment and the timing of my picking this up. I wanted something a little lighter, a nice romance, and I got it in spades. Definite re-read when I need something that can offer solid entertainment, some heat (but a little light), and an uncomplicated mystery. I really liked the in-depth background on some of the characters, I think it really added that 'something extra'.

A simple, light read

It wasn't the best thing I've ever read, but I enjoyed it. All the people touting Jack LeFleur as the narrator of the century aren't far off. His men sound manly and his women don't squeak or whine. He was the brightest part of this book.

Nice paranormal m/m romance with great narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, Its a very good example of a well done m/m genre story with elements of paranormal, romance, mystery, thriller and just the right touch of smexy.

What did you like best about this story?

I love m/m genre. I think this is this authors first novel, at least in this genre and its great.<br/>An engaging story, 2 likeable, simpathetic MC's. Aspects of paranormal, mystery and romance.

Which scene was your favorite?

I just loved the character of Kiernan.

Any additional comments?

The narrator was amazing, did a fantastic job of separating out character voices, and was just flat out sexy with Kiernan's character. <br/>Will be looking for more narrated by him.
