Audible Editor Reviews

Amanda Ronconi narrates this humorous mystery with the vocal equivalent of an eye roll. While she doesn’t sound bored, she certainly sounds annoyed. But imagine her character’s predicament: She’s purchased an old crumbling Victorian on the Jersey shore, she’s fixing it up into a guesthouse, her precocious nine-year-old is hectoring, and now she finds out the Victorian is haunted!

Admittedly contrived, over-the-top, and including references that will be dated unto obscurity within the next decade or sooner, Night of the Living Deed seeks to achieve only one thing: Your temporary laughter and merriment at - or with - Ronconi’s eye-rolling voice.

Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the first Haunted Guest House mystery - the getaway every reader can afford.

Newly divorced Alison Kerby wants a second chance for herself and her nine-year-old daughter. She's returned to her hometown on the Jersey Shore to transform a Victorian fixer-upper into a charming-and profitable guest house. One small problem: the house is haunted, and the two ghosts insist Alison must find out who killed them.

    Story
    "Hauntingly Good"
    What made the experience of listening to Night of the Living Deed the most enjoyable?

    i loved the vibrancy of the Jersey Shore Life, which was almost another charecter in the story. The narrator brings this story to life with an entertaining performance.


    What other book might you compare Night of the Living Deed to and why?

    Its kind of like Sookie Stackhouse minus the vampire plus ghost and set in Jersey.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    i love Amanda Ronconi, she is most likely my fav narrator. I think she best personifies the Jane Jameson books, but she definetley does justise to E. L. Copperman's work

    "Boring. Don't waste your credit or your time"

    Meh. Wonderfully read by Amanda Ronconi but even she couldn't save this book. It had it's funny, sarcastic moments but mostly it was boring with very annoying characters. I especially disliked the two ghosts. Very disappointed as I had high hopes for this book as well as the series.

    "Good, fast paced"

    Cute little story - plot line was predictable and the main characters negative attitude about men grated on my nerves, but overall a good read.

    "GREAT!"

    This is one of the best books I have listened too. Amanda Ronconi is the best! I look forward to the rest of the series only because of Amanda Ronconi. She makes the book come to life.
    The story is great and very interesting. Easy to follow and the characters are great!

    Story
    "Fun in the Purest Sense"
    What made the experience of listening to Night of the Living Deed the most enjoyable?

    Ronconi did a wonderful job in bringing the characters to life. She voiced the main character well, made Maxie a charming brat, Paul all sorts of charming, and the daughter of the main character a realistic child.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Night of the Living Deed?

    I think the confrontation at the end was well written, well paced, and the reveal of the villain(s) was well done.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The law can be a killer.

    "Lighthearted Who Done It"

    Entertaining, fun story line with a dose of who done it thrown in and you have a nice engaging listening experience. Definitely not edge of your seat, but enjoyable.

    Story
    "Took a chance!"
    Where does Night of the Living Deed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would say in the top 25%. I have my old stand bys, but this book was a pleasant surprise.


    What other book might you compare Night of the Living Deed to and why?

    Maybe a cross between the "Murder She Baked Series" and "Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye." I like to be entertained, with suspense, and grown up super powers. I don't necessarily believe in ghosts or knowing the future, etc. but I enjoy the stories.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I chose because of Amanda Ronconi, but I didn't like some of the voices she used in the characters. That is just a personal preference, I have loved other things she has read.
