Publisher's Summary

The first rule of being a ghost whisperer: Don't tell anyone. Seriously. Don't.  

Sure, it might sound harmless. A fun party trick, even. I assure you, it's not. How do I know? Well, let's just say that I've had a lot of experience with this sort of thing, and nine times out of 10, it turns into an all-consuming disaster.  

Being plagued by needy ghosts 24-7 is one thing; being harassed by a horde of curious - or worse, grieving - flesh-and-blood people is an entirely different circus. I mean really, who wants to hold an impromptu seance in the middle of the cereal aisle? Not me, and the manager of the grocery store probably isn't too crazy about the idea, either.  

So, that's it. If you're a ghost whisperer, just keep your mouth shut and act normal. Ghosts? What ghosts?  

Now, if only I would start listening to my own advice....

Ghost whisper

This a wonderful and delightful story. The ghosts in the story are very active and interact with the heroine. Can't wait for the next story.

Substance and Fun

Amanda Ronconi as narrator is perfect for this tale. The ghost element has more depth than in many other of the same genre. Rosie the ghost, in particular. The heroine's voice is upbeat and self deprecating at times but has definite depth and blends the various threads of the story nicely. This is a cozy with substance. Good story, great narrator.

Fun and entertaining.

I purchased this book because I really enjoyed the sample. I wished there had been more of her cat, Flapjack, but I guess he wasn't that pivotal to the plot. I enjoyed the narration but there were times when I became frustrated with the ghost Rose. Overall I'm glad I listened to it. I already have the next one in queue for me to start listening to.

Cotton Candy Fluff .... save it for a library DL

When a story ends, some books leave you wanting more ... and some just leave you wanting. There were some cute/ funny parts, but overall, this was fluff I wouldn't want to ever re listen to... cotton candy fluff. Sweet but no substance.

Pleasant surprise

I enjoyed this book/audiobook more than I had thought I would going into this read/listen. Danielle Garrett has created a great cast of characters to start off this new series. Amanda Ronconu,as usual gave an excellent performance as it all came to life. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

Meh...

The main character is so annoying, she has no backbone and she's way too afraid to stand up for herself. The romantic aspect is so middle school and completely lame. she has no tact, inappropriately impulsive and she's bad at knowing how to go about making use of her own gift. overall the story was completely lame and dumb and I really wish I hadn't even bought the book.

well written

this book was well written but a few things left out. I would have like an explanation for the family of the main character. I felt like if Scarlett was standing in front of me I would have asked questions. but maybe that would have slowed to story down, however it was good and I was satisfied with the ending.
I am so glad one of my favorite narrators did this series. she really brings a book to life.
