Publisher's Summary

Spring is in the air. In Deep Creek Lake, the burst of blossoms on the trees has the effect of a starting pistol in the race to get the resort area ready in time for the seasonal residents return to Spencer, Maryland.

This year, the Spencer Inn, Mac Faraday's five-star resort, has the added duty of preparing for the Diablo Ball, an annual benefit event that used to kick off Deep Creek Lake's summer season. The exclusive gala has drawn in A-listers from across the country, including suspects and witnesses connected to Ashton Piedmont, a young woman who had disappeared while skinny dipping in Deep Creek Lake five years earlier, days after the last Diablo Ball.

Intrigued by a mysterious phone call from a young woman claiming to be Ashton, retired homicide detective Mac Faraday can't resist diving head first into the cold case. But he's not the only one. Someone behind the scenes has gone to a lot of trouble to bring Ashton Piedmont's friends and enemies to the Diablo Ball, which promises to be a gala event to die for!

Loved it

Open Season for Murder by Lauren Carr was a great addition to eh series!! James C. Lewis did a simply phenomenal job with the narration especially as he went between the different characters' voices. I really liked the way a cold case was used and how someone invited a bunch of people connected to the case to the Diablo Ball. It made me keep listening to find out who invited them, if the victim was actually dead, and how Mac would solve the case!

Muliable Murders and Killers

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, If you enjoy one of Lauren Carr books. You will want to read the others. They are all that good.

What did you like best about this story?

It was intriguing and enjoyable. You were always looking and guessing who might be the killer or killers. You want to solve the mysteries and deaths.

Have you listened to any of James C. Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I might have but I am not 100%. How can you compare one book to another one narrator to another book he did.

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

Yes, But that did not happen. Though that would be something I would like to do with one of her books. I just do not do it.

GOOD. ENJOYABLE

Again a good story from Lauren Carr. Well performed by James C. Lewis. The murder plot was good and the it was a very intriguing mystery. Good cast of characters and as usual Gnarly did his part in catching the killer. I hope there will more books for this series.

Open a good book and enjoy

This is another enjoyable mystery in the Mac Faraday series. Once again the author weaves a complicated plot with so much going on and does it with what seems very little effort. With two or even three murders, you would think it would get confusing, especially with so many characters but it doesn't. The characters have so much personality and background stories that they stand out as individual and likeable characters, even the side characters (or suspects) are easy to tell and understand. The dog also has a big personality that you just have to love. The mystery was good and took a number of twists that all come together in one dramatic and unsuspected conclusion. I love starting a new Mac Faraday mystery, I just hate it when I reach the end because I don't want the fun and entertainment to stop.
Robin Spencer's charity event for the animals has turned into a big gala that is eagerly anticipated by the rich and famous as the must go to yearly event. After her death her son and his wife set up to continue the good work. But somebody is using the event to solve a murder, when a group of friends receive an invite not sent by Archie. Ashton was killed not long after the event five years previously and now with a tv crew opening up the old case the friends have been collected together for the first time. Mac
as owner of the Spencer inn and an ex police detective he gets involved in the cold case when somebody start to pick off the friends one by one. In order to find the killer he will have to solve the first murder that brought them all together.
I liked the narrator. He might not have had a wide range of voices to choose from but the ones he used were right for the characters.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
