Publisher's Summary

Katelyn Winters is a mystery writer who is officially in a rut. With her editor hounding her for the next hot book, she's dug her heels into her office trying to type out something...anything! That's when life steps in and throws her some juicy tidbits; Haverford Manor. Between the old mystery of the murder that happened there years ago and its new tenants, Adam and Vickie Haverford, there's a plethora of ideas. Unfortunately, Katelyn gets in a little too deep...that's when her sister, Abby, steps in and offers a murder-mystery weekend experience. As fun as that sounds, could bad omens and ill will follow Katelyn to Winchester Estates? Has Katelyn gotten herself in a little too deep? Hopefully, she's not the one to be kidnapped!

Okay

I loved the description of this book. The idea of a mystery author having trouble with her new book sounded like a different and fun idea for a storyline. I was underwhelmed by the audiobook sadly. There is nothing wrong with the book, no sex, bad language, or anything like that. But I also didn't find anything that made me want to continue with this series. I was also underwhelmed with the narrator Jeannette Smith as well. At first, Jeannette's voice seemed fine but over time it grated on me. With that, all said it is an okay book and you might not be as picky as I seem to be in this year of 2020.

Funny and Mysterious

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. From the beginning you know something is wrong with one of the characters. It’s an interesting take on an old house. Everyone knows old houses and places are memories of history and those histories have holes and those holes often cause confusion as to what really happened. I loved the characters and the stories. This book certainly feels like a two for one deal. Both stories make you laugh and keep your attention till the very end. The narrative done by Jeannette is perfect.

Fine read!

Interesting premise: author is having trouble with a new manuscript when a different neighbor moves into a house with a murder history and other odd goings on. She gets caught up in the home's history when she and he sister run into new and strange happenings. Rather simply written and easily for most age groups. Good characters and interesting twists. I liked it and look forward to reading others in the series! Narrator Jeannette Smith is okay but her voice grated a bit. I won this audio in a giveaway! Yay me!

Not for me

I had a difficult time listening to Kidnapped. The characters were flat, the mystery is disjointed and and didn't make sense. The plot is unrealistic and seems to be written in the style of a 50s mystery noir. I also thought the dialogue was stilted and dated. The narrator didn't do a bad job, but couldn't save this book. I couldn't get into this book and had to force myself to complete it. I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Lies and mysteries

I really enjoyed this book, it is two books (or two parts) that make up one very good mystery. The first part of the book is told by Katelyn and two other characters as she reads a news paper article, so the story does jump around between the characters and time but there is a reason for this. The second part of story is told mainly be Katelyn and her sister Abby and is all set in the present. I think this really works for the story and I liked how it all comes together in the end. The plot for the second part of the book was unusual but the whole story grabbed your attention from the start and didn't let up. I liked the characters and even the grumpy rude writer turned out to be likeable in the end. I hope there is another book in the series. Katelyn is struggling to come up with a new plot idea for her novel she new neighbours move into the house next door and turn her world upside down. She makes friends with the wife of the couple but not everything is as is seems. The house had a checkered past when a murder took place there and Katelyn feels there might be a story there, she looks through past articles to uncover what really happened. Little did she know that a story was unfolding little closer to home and In the present. When Vickie asks for help Katelyn and her sister Abby end up putting there lives on the line to help. After been help at gun point and still managing to catch the bad guy the sisters are offered a free place on a murder mystery weekend for writers. Strange things start happening to Katelyn as soon as she arrives. Then she goes missing, can Abby trust anyone as she tries to find out what happened to her sister? The staff seem to know more than they are telling but what about their rest of the authors? Katelyn is new to the writing scene so no body had reason to take out the competition and is is not famous enough to rake in the big bucks for ransom. So just what is the reason behind the disappearance? I liked the narrator and thought she did a good job with all the voices needed to bring the story to life.
