Publisher's Summary

When Angela Ellis returns to her childhood home on St. Nabor Island, South Carolina, her junior year of college interrupted indefinitely by her mother's death, she doesn't know how she'll ever be able to function in the world without her mother's love, support, and guidance. Soon after her mother's funeral, strange sounds begin to trouble her in the night, sounds she swears are her mother's angry voice. In an effort to find peace for herself and for her mother's restless spirit, Angela begins a ghost hunt that makes her friends fear for her sanity and that leads her to more questions than answers. Her parents, it turns out, were extraordinary secret keepers, and now Angela is on her own to discover the truth.

One thousand miles away on Devil's Back Island, Casey Seaver has built a sweet life for herself hidden away from the rest of the world in Maine's Casco Bay. She runs a small café and keeps to herself, rarely visiting the mainland. When a posthumous letter arrives from her estranged mother, old memories and new problems interrupt her island idyll. For 20 years she has been trying to forget the mistakes and injustices of her youth, and she has nearly convinced herself she has succeeded, but her mother's words shatter that illusion. As she tries ignore her mother's dying wishes, a stranger arrives on the island, looking to bring Devil's Back into the 21st century at last. If he has his way, Casey's island haven will be a refuge no more.

As plans for a new resort on Devil's Back spur Casey to move her life forward, Angela's ghost investigation forces her to examine the past. Fate has put their lives on a collision course, and through each other, they will find the way through their grief.

    "My original review disappeared"
    Which character – as performed by Becket Royce – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed this narrators tone and pace. She did an amazing job on this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Since my original review disappeared I cannot recall all of the details of this book as I've listened to and read more books since. What I do recall is that mother and daughter are reunited through a paranormal connection. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

    "Interesting Listen"

    The author and narrator were new to me. This is a very well written story that is Women's Fiction and some Romance with the mention of ghosts. The premise of the book was complex which intrigued me. Parts of the story moved fast while others were slow. I have been listening to mystery and thriller books lately, so this wasn't as gripping as I was expecting. Overall, I thought it was very good and would listen to more by both the author and narrator.

    Good story - well written and we'll spoken. Ghosts, love interests, and taking control of one's life - what's not to like

    Any additional comments?

    Two simultaneous stories eventually come together, becoming intertwined by a series of shocking twists and turns. Sometimes ghosts aren't the only things that haunt us. What She Inherits was a great listen and very entertaining. I would recommend this audiobook.

    "Touching"

    The story is of the things we do that forever haunt us. Decisions we make when we are young that change us. And families that are dysfunctional and yet are all we want. Perfect yet have hidden secrets. There is a little for everyone. Maybe predictable to some yet still worth the time to read. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

    Any additional comments?

    This women’s romance/fiction book began as two parallel stories. The reader meets Casey who runs a bakery on the quaint Devil’s Back Island on the North-Eastern coast. Angela returns home to St. Nabor Island off the South Carolina Coast following her mother’s death. Neither seems to have a common thread with the other.
    As Angela begins to sort through her mother’ affairs she begins to believe that she is haunted by her Mother’s unsettled ghost. Answers lead to more questions.
    Each woman’s story unfolds and keeps the reader interested to learn what happens next and wondering how the two stories come together. This is a lovely story telling how decisions can become clouded ad truths come to light. It will keep you interested until the end.

    "I wasn't sure?"

    I have to admit, when I started this book I just wasn't sure. I was underwhelmed by the narration and the first few paragraphs. Typically if I'm not entranced by the first sentence I find myself drifting through the entire book, only half listening. By Chapter 3 I realized I was eager for any opportunity to push play. It didn't take long for me to fall comfortably into these characters.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the 'surprise' connection of the characters and the parallel stories in this book. I was a bit disappointed in myself that I didn't figure out the connection sooner. I'm usually not surprised by your typical twists and have figured it out long before the author confirms my suspicions. This one kept me curious and I realized the twist was coming about 5 minutes before the author dropped the final clues. Well done!

    Narration, while not initially impressive, easily became the perfect flow, voice and tone for these characters. Becket Royce brought these characters to life for me and I couldn't imagine Casey, Rosetta or Angela any other way.

    Overall, well done. I will re-read.

    "Enjoyable contemporary with paranormal elements."
    Any additional comments?

    Overall Rating - 4.5 Stars.

    What She Inherits by Diane Mulligan is an enjoyable contemporary romance with a few paranormal elements interwoven into the story. Considering how many Ghost Hunter-type shows are on the television these days, I thought the premise of the story quite clever.

    The story centers around Angela Ellis who suddenly withdraws from college after her mother's untimely death. With her father in an assisted living facility suffering from Alzheimer’s, Angela feels quite alone especially after she starts hearing strange voices in her family home in South Carolina. While visiting her father one day, Angela discovers that her parents held deep secrets and previous lives that she never knew about.

    There is also secondary story that alternates with Angela’s story. This one revolves around Casey Seaver who runs a café and bakery in Maine's Casco Bay. It is obvious that Casey was a troubled youth and someone who has been running away from something for the past 20 years. When a developer comes to town with big ideas on how to make the sleepy little island a destination resort, Casey is suddenly awakened from her 20-year slumber.

    While the alternating stories seemed to jump around and interrupted the flow of the overall story, I really enjoyed how the two plot lines intertwined at the end. I also appreciated how Angela sought help from a local ghost hunter, who just happened to be someone who admired her from afar in middle school -- that plot line was very sweet and satisfying.

    I listened to the Audible version of this story, which was narrated by Becket Royce. She did an outstanding job. Her style is very natural and conversational, and she uses differing voices for each of the characters. Becket had great intonation and pace, and kept the story suspenseful throughout. I received a free copy of this audio and freely leave this unbiased review. In summary, I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance, with a hint of the supernatural.
