Publisher's Summary

Is it possible Scarlet Oaks, the reluctant new host of a men’s call-in show, inspired the first serial killer San Francisco’s seen in some 40 years?

Struggling to pay the rent after her boyfriend’s sudden departure, continue her role as mediator in an unconventional family, and feed a micro pig who appears less micro by the day, Scarlet’s life is far from perfect. But when an eerie sounding caller is identified as the bay area’s latest serial killer, it appears her life will never be same.

With the killer continually calling into Scarlet’s show, while managing to stay one step ahead of the San Francisco police, Scarlet begins to fear she’s his next victim. Enlisting best friends Niles and Tom and their often-hilarious help, Scarlet sets out to find the elusive Serial Caller...before he finds her.

Root for Scarlet during this heart-pounding and alternately humorous mystery thriller. Fall in love with unforgettable characters, recognize familiar family members, and hold on tight for an adrenaline-filled ride.

If you’re a Stephanie Plum fan, make room for Scarlet Oaks!

This is the first book in the Scarlet Oaks series.

characters you want to get to know more of

Book 1 in this series that revolves around Scarlet Oaks who is just an absolute brilliant character. Always positive in every situation but it doesn't come off as fake. The characters that surround her - friends and family are just as fun and lovable as Scarlet is and her pet pig - OMG! A fun mystery that will have you guessing if you really know who may be the murderer and why and what he really wants with our dear sweet heroine Scarlet. Well written with fabulous characters that you just want to get to know more about. Narration was spot on and well done! Great storyline that flowed well through out the entire read / listen!

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Uneventful

I didn't really care for this book. It seemed to go on and on and there really wasn't anything to suck me in. The mysterious caller was annoying, his threat was not terribly suspenseful and catching him was boring. I liked the characters, their different personalities and their interactions but they weren't very memorable. The whole story could have ended way before it did but it felt to me like there was a whole lot added to the end that was unneeded. The narration was very good and I wouldn't hesitate to listen to something else from her. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Great listen!

When you find a great book paired with a great narrator it's like winning the audiobook lottery. There is mystery, intrigue, plot twists, humor, and some clean romance... all of this with stellar narration. If you are looking for a nice and easy listen without any real angst or heartbreak, I highly suggest this.

Mystery

Scarlet Oaks and the Serial Caller is a good book full of intrigue, suspense, laughs and a cute little pig. I loved the storyline but sometimes it has too many storylines running together. I loved the quirky characters and the banter that goes on between them. I received this audio book at my request. I am leaving my honest review here voluntarily of my own volition.

NO!

This book made no since. It went on and on and on with no real resolution. Maybe I just missed the point. At any rate, I did not like it and returned it.

Non-Gruesome Serial Killer Story

Kind of refreshing. I was actually scared in a couple of parts, like when the lights go out......

If you know San Francisco, the setting, she creates detailed images of many parts of that area.
