Publisher's Summary

The truth is out there...maybe.

Charlie Rhodes has a lot going on. The recent college graduate just landed her dream job. That's right. She's a bona fide monster hunter. No, you read that right. Charlie has joined the Legacy Foundation, and her actual job is to find something new, wonderful and scientifically unique.

Her first job as the junior member of the team involves a biggie. It seems Bigfoot - no, the one and only Sasquatch extraordinaire itself - may have killed a woman in Hemlock Cove, Michigan. Within hours of landing at her new job Charlie finds herself traveling to an odd little town in the middle of nowhere to discover if Bigfoot is real.

Charlie hits the ground running, excitement practically overwhelming her. The dead woman worked at a local resort and was very popular with her male colleagues. That means there are plenty of human suspects, but Charlie and her team are determined to prove the culprit was animal, not human.

Hemlock Cove boasts numerous mysteries, of course, and when the team checks in to a local inn called The Overlook they find a gaggle of wacky women to contend with. On top of the potential Bigfoot issue, Charlie is convinced there's something going on with the Winchester women and she's determined to get to the bottom of the secrets she's convinced they're keeping.

That's on top of the fact that Charlie is keeping her own secret. She's psychic and telekinetic - and exactly the sort of person the Legacy Foundation would like to find. That means she's hiding in plain sight, and she's desperate to make sure nobody figures that out.

Charlie is in for a wild ride, one that includes a magical adventure and concludes with a potentially deadly face-off. Will she survive long enough to catch a second case, or will she fall victim to a killer that could come in almost any form?

    "Not good- at all."

    I thought this book would be a fun light hearted mystery with a little supernatural element but I’m not sure what I just listened to. It was 80% inane rambling conversation between 20 somethings about obsessive boyfriends. There was minimal paranormal content, too many undeveloped characters and the ‘mystery’ it was built around was obvious. At one point I thought I thought I stumbled into a tweens book, but then there would be random sexual references that were out of character with the rest of the writing. Also there was a lot of what I assume was supposed to be witty banter, but was so sophomoric it was tiring and tedious.
    The narrator was ok.

    "Like overhearing high school lunchroom talk"

    The author gives us no reason to be invested in these characters but expects us to care about their endlessly drawn out adolescent chatter. More story, please!

    Story
    "I'm giving up on it & I rarely quit a story."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less time spent on the Winchester family and their "SNARKY" behavior. The endless bickering & snarking (the author over-uses this word), begins to bore this reader quickly. More about Charlie & her gifts would give the story traction. At some point I began to wonder who the story was about, the Winchesters? Charlie? Jack? The murder? Is there a central plot at all?


    Has The Bigfoot Blunder turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Less whining on the part of the narrator. As each character speaks there is an air of ambivalence & apathy to the character tone. So much defensiveness in the attitude of the characters speaks to wild insecurity & an inability to make a connection to the story.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Only that I commend anyone to make the effort to write a story & get it published. I recognize this is the author's baby. They've taken the time to produce a story meant to be enjoyed & shared. For me, the story was tedious. In spite of that, props to the author for the work.

    "it's an okay book"

    this book is okay to listen to but it's obvious someone was a supernatural fan when they wrote This Book but it slows down way too much in the middle and the narrator sounds like she's bored through the whole thing.

    "Nice Spin-off"

    I was surprised to find this set in Hemlock Cove with Aunt Tillie et al. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The only element I'd like to change is Landon's and now Jack's overprotectiveness. There is a line between being protective and loving vs. Being bossy and taking away someone's right to independent thought and decision-making. Landon is repeatedly crossing that line and becoming a true " buttitch".

    "Bigfoot"

    Very disappointed. Story dragged, very little paranormal or witchy happenings. A lot of the book was whiney... characters childish. I normally love her books, this one fell flat. Won't be buying anymore of her books for a while.
