Divorced mom Libby Grace works as an elementary school teacher and has no social life to speak of. The most she has to worry about is finding a way to fix a leaky faucet without a budget for a plumber. The next thing Libby knows she's standing at the foot of her son's bed without her body!
Libby can't remember what happened to her. Is she dead? Is she somewhere unconscious worrying in a hospital? She doesn't know for sure because she can't find her body. The last place she remembers being is the local hardware store, but instead of her own body, she finds the corpse of the store's owner, husband to the mayor of her small town.
In order to solve the mystery surrounding her disappearance, Libby must figure out who killed George Walsh. Along the way, she gets help from her reclusive neighbor, Ian McClain, who turns out to be one of the undead in a very different sense.
First of all, the story was great. It kept me up late at night not wanting to stop listening. Disappointed by the ending a bit, but that's why it is a series I suppose. The narration was really good for females other than the whisper she does at times - makes it hard to hear. The male voices are not good. Very low like a whisper and gruff. They sound unreal and all the males sounded exactly the same. I would not let this deter you from purchasing this book though. The content is good enough to stand alone.
I pondered over this book but can report I made the right choice.
It's an interesting take on a paranormal cosy mystery and it works. Okay there a bits where one has to suspend belief, but isn't it hat what this genre is about.
The characters are likeable, even the weird neighbour Ian. Our protagonist, Libby is the divorced single mum. Ya da ya da ya da, but you'll root for her.
It well written and well read
