Publisher's Summary

Ever since Agnes' car accident, things have changed drastically for her. When she wakes up in the hospital, not only is her son, Stuart, there - who she hasn't seen in years - but a ghostly apparition!

Instead of getting ready for the loony bin, Agnes and Eleanor help ready the Butler Mansion for a grand opening as a bed and breakfast on Halloween, except they find the body of Katherine Clark. It's game on, as usual, for Agnes, except she now has a new partner, one who has remained silent and is - well - a ghost.

Agnes now struggles to keep her wits, keeping her ghostly companion a secret from Eleanor, not such an easy feat since Eleanor is sharp as a tack. Not only that, but where has Stuart been all of these years, and what is he up to?

Voice actor was truly painful to listen too.

Story was okay, but voices were so terrible it made it hard to get through. I have listened to some amazing audio books. This was NOT one of them.

Simplistic

The overall plot was OK but the dialog was simplistic. I suppose the author was going for humor but it just didn't work. The delivery didn't help, the ghosts voice was especially irritating.

Agnes and Eleanor get unexpected help

Purchased as Whispersync on the cheap courtesy of Ereadercafe.
Sorry to say, but this is not the author's finest effort. I am familiar with Agnes and Eleanor, but some things seemed out of sync with the things that I am familiar with. I think that someone new to the author would get bogged down rather quickly. I did not find this one as funny, either. All that being said, usually Agnes and Eleanor and their friends and not-friends have a good mystery and a lot of laughs, so don't give up on them!
This narrator is OK, but when one gets used to a previous one...

Impressive!

I haven't yet read or listened to anything by Madison Johns that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed. Impressive!
This story flowed and captured my attention so totally that I literally forgot to eat.
A clever plot, skillful sleuthing, good partnerships, quite a bit of secrecy and we have an intriguing and most entertaining book.
Entertaining narration by Angel Clark in the audiobook.
I would thoroughly recommend this as a good read. Enjoy!

Enjoyed the story.

Angel Clark does an excellent job narrating this story, and if I had not already heard Toni Orans narrate "Armed and Outrageous", I probably would have been quite satisfied. However, now when I read any Agnes Barton story, I hear those vouces in ny head.

Disappointing

The Agnes Senior series is much better.

The plot is well thought out. Lacked the humor of her other books. This narrator was distracting. In fact, I almost stopped listening. I bought this book because the 3rd book in the senior series isn’t on audio.

Cute Story - Bad Narrator

I got this book as the first in a series. What I felt like I got was a book stuck in the middle of a series and like I was missing a lot of important information about the characters and relationships in the book. I don’t think the author did a good job of separating this book as a new series by helping readers get to know the characters and ease them into the world of East Tawas. It was a jarring slam into the middle of a new universe.

With all that negativity though I still liked the characters and really enjoyed the mystery. Agnes and Eleanor are great together whose relationship seems very natural. Some of the supporting characters were not as developed as I wanted but it didn’t deter me from enjoying the story.

I admit I heard the narrator and immediately cringed. If I had known Angel Clark was the narrator I probably would not have gotten the audiobook and stuck with reading only. I enjoy both Agnes series and the Harper Harlow series, but they are both ruined by a narrator that makes every character sound 12.

Cute

The story line was cute if a bit difficult to follow. This isn’t my normal reading scene. I found the shift of the narrator a bit annoying. She moved from a young voice to an interpretation of an older voice too much. I won’t seek out others in the story line unless they are on a deep sale but I can see what someone would like about them.

Haunted

Awful voice. Really spoiled the story for me. Sadly I won’t be listening to any more if Angel Clark is narrating.
