Publisher's Summary

In this second book in the On the Road mystery series, Stan and Emily pack up the RV and head to Boston for some R & R with the grandkids and a chance to immerse themselves in colonial history. But their Fourth of July celebration comes to an abrupt halt when they stumble over a body on the Boston Esplanade and then another hanging in the tower of the Old North Church. Now the couple must unravel a tangle of forged clues and flush out the perpetrator before their own untimely epitaphs are written onto the historical landscape.

    "Time well spent"

    This is a very well written story with likable characters and an intriguing plot. Emily's characters is brave and smart. I enjoy the way she interacts with her family and solves the murder. The story is realistic and has a good pace. I look forward to other books in this series.

    Story
    "Emily, get your license."

    I have two pieces of advice for retired police officer Emily and her husband. First, you both seem destined to be stumbling over corpses during your travels, so Emily should think seriously about getting a P.I. license. Second, STAY AWAY FROM GARAGE SALES!

    I enjoyed this book very much, but I have to take off a star for the fact that I tagged the killer almost immediately. I just didn't know exactly WHY, which was reason enough to keep listening. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the scenes of the grandkids driving the adults crazy. It all sounded very true-to-life to me.

    The narrator does a fine job with this series, and she's easy to listen to. Over all, it was an enjoyable listen.

    I received a free copy of this audio book from the author, publisher, or narrator. This is my honest opinion.

    "Fun Ride"

    Easy relaxing listen! I was in the mood for a book that didn't cause nightmares; and without course language, child abuse, gratuitous sex, or graphic violence. This book fit my criteria. Enjoyed listening to the travels around the Boston area and the family involvement (especially, one of the granddaughters) in solving the mystery.

    I had a slight problem with narration. Sometimes I couldn't discern the characters as the narration was too similar.

    After this 2nd in the On The Road Mystery series, I look forward to listening to the 1st in the series. I don't feel I missed any of the backstory by not listening to the 1st in the series before the 2nd.

    Note: I received this audiobook from the author at no-charge. The review is my honest opinion.

    What made the experience of listening to On the Road to Where the Bells Toll the most enjoyable?

    I've been on the Freedom Trail many times, but knew nothing about the bell tollers and the burials.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Good twists and turns


    What about Jane Oppenheimer’s performance did you like?

    Jane was great as a narrator. She expressed exacberation towards "younger generation" perfectly!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The seagull poop caused me to burst out laughing in the doctors office no less!


    Any additional comments?

    Have to look up the first book and will be looking forward to the next! “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    "Refreshing mystery"
    Where does On the Road to Where the Bells Toll rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the first series I've read from the writer, I would have to put it on a must read list for cosy mystery fans.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's refreshing, getting to know all the new players and seeing the world thru the eyes of everyone is relaxing.


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

    This was my first by this reader, and I loved it, she has branded the series for me, I don't think I could enjoy it with someone else reading it. Super amazing work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really love when winter and her grandfather had time one on one, its simple and a little bit filler, but just shows how we all have layers and people can shock you at the oddest of times. and I also love the chapters with bells and all the info and how well the writer talked about them.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a lovely series and worth the read, good plot, refreshing style and a nice look at life and its many changes. I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Any additional comments?

    What a delightful book. Retired Michigan police officer, Emily Remington, and history professor turned author husband, Stan, head for Boston to enjoy a fun camping holiday with their grandchildren. But they had forgotten just how much energy young children have, how space restricted a camper van can be, how easily rain can penetrate a tent - and when little things start to disappear and one of the youngsters literally trips over a dead body - well, for the reader, at least, it's going to be a memorable holiday.<br/><br/>The characters are all beautifully portrayed and the hard work chaos of family life revisited perfectly observed, with excellent, natural and often humerous dialogue. This is further brought to life by Jane Oppenheimer's narration. The conversations are well nuanced, the text read clearly and well paced. Her reading gives even greater reality to this warm hearted, inclusive book. Interesting snippets of local history are also gathered along the way - and the mystery story is pretty good, too.<br/><br/>My thanks to the rights holder for gifting me a copy of On the Road to Where the Bells Toll, via Audiobook Boom. Completely standalone, friendly and immersing, I really enjoyed Emily and Stan's holiday even if it was not as relaxing for them as they had hoped. This is not my usual genre for reading but if all cosy mysteries were as good as this one, i would be an immediate convert.
