Publisher's Summary

Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox is on the verge of breaking a huge story of political corruption that will make her career and make her famous journalist parents proud - or she could be thrown in jail and fired. It really could go either way.

Her recent streak of bad luck continues when Lindsey finds herself facing a bogus contempt charge - and attorney Ben Gillespie is appointed to get her out of the slammer. They once had a bad date of epic proportions - stilted conversation, food poisoning, burglary, towed car. Then there was the incident with the pepper spray. Lindsey never believed she'd see the sexy lawyer again.

Ben can totally believe that Lindsey is behind bars. The woman is trouble. Now he has to get his new client out of jail, keep her out of the grasp of a crazed bike messenger and a shady P.I., help her save her job, and convince her to put down the pepper spray and give him another chance.

Mystery with a touch of romance

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It was very different than what I'm used to but It held my attention from beginning to end. It was very suspenseful and full of twists and turns. There was mystery, drama, action, suspense, danger, and a bit of romance. The characters were well developed and the story moved at a good pace.

The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life. There were a lot of ups and downs in this story and Denice portrayed them well.

The main characters are a journalist and a lawyer. There is quite a bit of friction and conflict between them but they find themselves involved in a pretty dangerous situation.

I'm looking forward to book 2!

Mystery with some romance

Ellie Ashe and Denice Stradling are both very talented. The story was gripping and had some unexpected twists and humorous moments. The romance in the book was an added plus. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. This story does not end in a cliffhanger but with a happy ending.

Various nuances clearly reflected by narrator

What captivated me was the tagline: "There's always trouble in Twin Rivers...". I wanted to see what this trouble was and if I would like getting to know more about it. Well, I did like it and meeting Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox was a pleasure. The chick is tenacious. She gets in to lots of trouble and this time needs Ben's help. The same Ben that she had a very bad date with. The same Ben that thinks she is trouble and wants another chance with the intriguing woman.

I loved this read because it had more romance and more mystery and just simply more. Ellie Ashe gave me a read that I could come back to over again. Lindsey was just so fun. This one had the twist the turns and the romance.

Narrator: Denice Stradling did a very good job getting me to get immersed in the world of Twin Rivers. There were ups, downs, ins, outs and Denice's voice reflected the various nuances. I loved there were no hiccups and no issues with the change in speed.

Amazing

Any additional comments?

This was my first audiobook and I absolutely loved it! I’ve had a couple friends that have been listening to them for the last couple years trying to get me to listen to one but I wouldn’t have it. Now I wish I would’ve listened to my friends! Denice Stradling did a wonderfully job at narrating the story and using different tones when needed. Unfortunately, she was the only narrator for the book so that was kind of a downfall on that. I was hoping to have a male for Bens part and a female for Lindsay’s part but besides that Denice did a great job distinguishing between each character. Overall, I really enjoyed this audiobook and I gave it five stars.

Fun, thrilling story!

Would you listen to A Good Kind of Trouble again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again. <br/>This story is fun! Some times I feel a little out of it and don't want ANYTHING to do with mystery. Other times, I want it like chocolate ice cream. And A LOT of it. This story grabbed my attention with the blurb. The characters are well developed. <br/>I must say that though the narrator and the audio were fantastic, and don't hold me to this, because I don't even know how to say it. Something fell short for me. But feeling pushed aside, I really liked this book.<br/>

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

No, I'd say I would prefer to listen to it er a few days. <br/>I almost thought I wouldn't have finished listening in time. My family was in the middle of house-hunting, we were all packing our stuff. So, my mind was not fully focused on what I was listening to. But I hopped right back into it a few days ago, started over and listened to the parts I needed more detail from.

A Great Start To The Series

If you could sum up A Good Kind of Trouble in three words, what would they be?

Riveting, Enjoyable, and Suspenseful

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

This was my first book which Ms. Stradling has narrated. I enjoyed listening to her but couldn't associate her voice with the main character, Lindsey Fox. Her voice didn't fit with someone that's supposed to be young. But that didn't stop me from enjoying having Ms. Stradling read to me. I liked the fact that she didn't attempt making a man's voice by deepening her tone. It would have sounded a little weird if she did.

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

I wouldn't say that I had any extreme reactions but it did have me chuckling every once in awhile. I enjoyed the mystery and suspense which made it hard to stop the book when it came time to get some work done.

Any additional comments?

This story made my drives to and from work more enjoyable. Also helped when I had errands to run. I can take or leave mysteries but this author did a great job of grabbing my attention and left me wanting more. The romance didn't overtake the mystery that got Lyndsey in trouble in the first place. Ben's character was believable - the author didn't make him out to be a pompous lawyer. He also comes to be impressed with how Lyndsey handles her job. Their relationship is secondary to what actually brought these two together. This audiobook made me a fan of this author's work. Can't wait to see if this series continues.<br/><br/>I voluntarily reviewed an audio version of this book.

A Good Kind of Thriller

I loved this book. The protagonist Lindsey is being stalked and no one believes her. Ben witnesses her attacks and finally she has someone to believe her, but that doesn't help. She is ridiculed by her colleagues and her boss. All of this is happening, because she is getting too close to a story.

I love the layers Ellie Ashe brings to the characters. Lindsey is doing her best to live up to her renowned parents, but she is doing it in secret. She doesn't advertise that her mother is a world famous journalist and her father is the editor-in-chief of a major Los Angeles newspaper. I respect her for that.

I also love how Ben is on a journey of self discovery. He's trying to figure out if he wants to be a corporate lawyer drone who helps insurance companies win cases or does he want to be more proactive.

One advice I would give anyone who listens to this is to make note of all the characters in this book. There are no small characters. There are a lot of moving pieces that comes to a satisfying climax.

I received this book for free for an honest review.

Entertaining and enjoyable

Any additional comments?

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining story from beginning to end. It pulled me in immediately and kept my attention from start to finish. <br/><br/>Perfect mix of suspense, romance, mystery, action and intrigue. Bonus a HEA. <br/><br/>What does it take to bring down a corrupt city government. <br/><br/> Being a reporter can be a dangerous and sometimes deadly job. <br/> Lindsey Fox is trying to make it on her own without relying on her famous parents reputation. Her investigating has caught the attention of certain people who don't want her digging any further. She not about to give up her digging and she doesn't shy away from situations that may get her into a bit of trouble.<br/>What starts out as a simple investigation quickly turns into a much bigger and much more dangerous story.<br/><br/> While Lindsey is pursuing leads for her story, all Ben can do is keep her out of more trouble, protect her and try to help her figure out who is after her. All while trying to stay out of the way of Lindsey's favorite weapon- Pepper Spray. <br/><br/>Lindsey and Ben were both really likable characters. Especially Ben. He was a great guy. <br/><br/>This is the first Ellie Ashe book that I have read. I am looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.<br/><br/> Denice Stradling did a great job with the narration. This is the first time I have heard her narrate a book. Pleasant voice, easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. She brought the characters and story to life through her narration. Very enjoyable. I would definitely listen to more books she has narrated in the future. <br/><br/> I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.<br/>

An intriguing kind of trouble.

Any additional comments?

This is a lovely romance and mystery combination. The characters, Lindsey and Ben are very likable and real. The author does a great job at leading the reader (listener) through the twists and turns of the trouble Lindsey is facing. The character of Ben is amazingly understanding considering the hell he’s been accidentally put through by Lindsey. This is one of those audiobooks I will listen to frequently. The narration is also very good and keeps the story interesting.<br/><br/>
