Publisher's Summary

Harbor Springs is a tiny resort town in northern Michigan that serves as the summertime playground of the wealthy, famous, and sometimes infamous. Starting a new business with her aunt, the fiercely independent Kylie Branson moves to town and unwittingly purchases for her home what had once been the summer stomping grounds of the notorious Purple Gang of Detroit. Soon she finds herself getting into predicament after predicament. Fortunately for Kylie, local fire chief Jason Lange always seems to show up at the right moment to rescue her. Unfortunately for Chief Lange, Kylie isn't the kind of girl who believes in being rescued. When Kylie's puppy gets stranded in an old air shaft in the woods, Kylie soon discovers that she may have gotten more than she bargained for when she purchased her home. Could the local lore about what was once Club Manitou be true? Kylie won't rest until she has learned the whole story.

    "Enjoyed the mystery!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Tunnels to be better than the print version?

    N/A I always prefer audiobooks so I can do other things at the same time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kylie was spunky and persistent in unraveling the tale despite the cuts and bruises.


    What about Jack de Golia’s performance did you like?

    Jack has a grasp of the characters so he can bring them to life. Good diction and cadence holds your attention throughout the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it's easier to follow the characters and story line. The twists and turns kept you guessing.

    Story
    "The Tunnels: A Harbor Secret"
    What did you love best about The Tunnels?

    I loved that the characters were richly described and relatable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that this romance-mystery took place in Northern Michigan. It is a place I love to visit and when I cannot be there year-round, it is fun to read a story that takes place there.


    Which character – as performed by Jack de Golia – was your favorite?

    I liked Aunt Judy. I felt she helped bridged the older generations with the younger generation nicely!


    Any additional comments?

    This book would be a great addition to every Northern Michigan cottage's summer reading collection!

    Story
    "Double The Pleasure!"
    What did you love best about The Tunnels?

    I have been to Northern Michigan too many times to count and had never heard about the tunnels before hearing this story. I both learned something and was thoroughly entertained while doing so. Next time I pass through the area I will stop and do more research.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the intertwining of generations and I thought the characters were well developed. It moved along really well, and it had me guessing as to what was going to happen next (which usually was completely wrong). I allowed myself to get lost in it, and I wasn't disappointed.


    Which character – as performed by Jack de Golia – was your favorite?

    Willie was my favorite but Cupcake runs a close second.


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

    I liked the entire piece, and thought it flowed extremely well the entire way through. Nothing in particular stood out, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. It held my attention from start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked how the story came together, and both the writing and performance gelled very well in my opinion. I would absolutely read/listen to more work by the author, and I liked this story so much I listened to it again. I don't do that often, and I found it just as entertaining the second time through.

    Terrific work Miss Dickinson! Your word use is outstanding. If I had to bet I would bet you are an excellent Scrabble player as well.

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

    I loved how the story weaved through the different time periods. I was engrossed in each of the stories and I was impressed by how well the author linked them together. I loved the suspense and intrigue as well as the romance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the banter and flirting between Kylie and Jason.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found the ending to be quite poignant, romantic and sad.
