Publisher's Summary

Chaos has descended on the Valducci family. Gina Valducci's grandmother and mentor, the founder of the family's thriving nursery business, has died. Her death sets off a string of seemingly unrelated events, including two horrific murders. Gina's colleague Jeff stands out as an obvious suspect, with plenty of motivation, opportunity, and means.

In her most unusual and complex case yet, Barbara Holloway accepts Jeff as her reluctant client. But to defend him, she must first discover how a secret will, corporate greed, stolen art of the World War II era, family skeletons, attempted murder, and an old ornate mirror factor in to the case. Barbara must reassemble the puzzle pieces perfectly before it's too late.

Believe me I wish it wasn't my true opinion

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This is awful because I feel like I'm saying bad things about a close friend. That's how much I love the B. Holloway books. I have listened to ALL of them. It pains me to say that this one failed me. Perhaps it's my fault. It could be that I'm distracted, abstracted or not feeling well. The story has a convoluted feel to it. I don't like most of the characters, which is a first for me. Normally, I care very deeply for the people in the books. ( I know that's ridiculous since they aren't real people.) BUT, this matters to me. If you are an author and you make me love or hate or fear or pity or resent or whatever, then you have me. Kate Wilhelm, normally has me completely. This time, not so much.

Had to listen to it twice!!

I'm an audio bibliophile and the Barbara Holloway series is one of my very favorites!! Kate Wilhelm is an incredible writer, her character development is amazing...they all feel like old friends of mine. I listened to the entire series, AGAIN, as I anxiously awaited the release of the audio edition. I really appreciate how Kate Wilhelm threads facts and details about the state of our world today, hopefully helping people to become more aware of the changes that need to happen for our happy future survival!! The environment, Red Wriggly compost worms, the injustice of our justice system, the lack of morality of big business and certain humans...good ole Frank, Barbara and the 'team' shine their conscientious goodness throughout twisting and turning, yet believable, plots!! I always have a wish list when I'm done, I wished Alex had made an appearance and Maria's Mum, jack of all trades Herbert (?)w/ his amazing dogs...just goes to show how attached one can get to fictional characters!! Barbara Holloway, along w/ the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear and a few others are my go to good JuJu feeling listens. Carrington MacDuffy is an amazing narrator as well! Thank you Kate Wilhelm for another terrific book!
When's the next one going to be available⁉️😃

Great listen

I have a 40 minute commute to and from work and found great joy in my driving just so I had time to listen. This story is very well written and narrated. The characters are believable. The dialogue and story line is well done. Just love it.

Fantastic

I love this series. The characters are believable and full of life. The plot was outstanding.
Smart. Sassy. Great Courtroom Drama and Great Out of the Courtroom Drama.
As someone who grew up in Eugene OR it is also fun to recognize some of the places the characters frequent in this series. Ms. Wilhelm keep writing!

Too much preaching

Plots of series usually interesting and attention holding. However, with each book, I felt increasingly as if author was more interested in spouting liberal views than providing listener with pleasant listening experience. Mirror, Mirror felt more like indoctrination than entertainment.

Enjoyed entire series

I've enjoyed this series very much. The stories & characters were all interesting and the narrators, Carrington Mcduffie, Marguerite Gavin & Anna Fields, all did a great job. I'm just sorry I've come to the end of the series.

Great suspense novel.

I could not stop listening to this story.Loved the narrator also. Kate Wilhelm is a writer who gives the characters life.I searched all her books and plan to get another one going soon as I catch up on the work I missed listening to this one.

Couldn’t finish it

The narration was very difficult to listen to. Really enjoyed this author in a different book and different narrator.

Easy fast-paced detective story with a twist.

A good fast- paced who-done-it. Story held me captive throughout and characters were believable. I would recommend this book.

The world seems better with Barbara Holloway

I know for a fact that the wonderful, wonderful Kate Wilhelm was born in 1928 so I did not expect book 14 in the Barbara Hollows series. All the characters were there. Truth, justice, and Barbara defending a better world. It was terrific.
