Publisher's Summary

The promise of discretion and pampering - and a longer overdue reconciliation with her mother - draws Caroline Blessing, the young wife of a newly elected congressman, to the fancy Phoenix Spa. But after her first night in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Caroline wakes to find the rich and famous guests in turmoil and under suspicion: the spa's flamboyant and ambitious owner has been murdered. As the secrets come out - and the body count rises - can Caroline keep herself from becoming the next victim?

Jance, Faye Kellerman, Mary Jane Clark, Anne Perry, Diana Gabaldon, Val McDermid, and Laurie R. King.

A nice easy listen

Not great. Not bad. I think I got it for the curiousity factor. So many different writers. I give them a lot of credit for creativity.

Great fun!

Each of these very talented authors had a chapter to write, which would be followed by the next author, who had to put her own spin on the story, which would be subsequently followed by yet another author with yet another spin! What glorious fun! I enjoyed this entire book and looked forward to each chapter, wondering how this author would carry the story forward and eventually ... how it would all end!

Fun

It was fun to see how each writer handled what she was given. However it became too fantastic to believe.

loved it!

I enjoyed the storyline, the characters, the plot, and the intrigue. The co-authors were brilliant in making the chapters flow seamlessly. Susan Erickson is my favorite narrator. I read just about everything she narrates especially JD Robb's in death series.

Serial Novel? Great,I hope they do another

This was so interesting,and so worth every penny. I was skeptical on how it would flow, but these authors did a great job. Loved the story and the characters. If you are familar with any of the authors you will be able to tell by style who wrote which chapter. I really loved this and know I will listen to this more then a few times. As always, Susan you are one of the greatest at narration. Keeps you guessing till the end. Hope they do it again.

Completely enjoyable.

I thoroughly enjoyed the way each author took the story and characters from the previous author and ran with it. It was so much fun to see what was going to happen next. A book I will keep in my collection and listen to again and again.
