Publisher's Summary

When hotel inspector, Tallulah Thompson, is called in along with her pug, Franny, to investigate renovation delays, she meets an extremely annoyed and dapper turn-of-the-century innkeeper. The only problem is he's in limbo, neither dead nor alive, and Tallulah and the pug are the first to see him in a hundred years.

Cursed by a medicine woman, "Love 'em and Leave 'em Lucius" Stewart is stuck between worlds until he finds his true love and gives her his heart. When he first sees Tallulah, he doesn't know what he's feeling. Yet, her stunning beauty and feisty attitude pull him in.

With the fate of Hotel LaBelle on the line, Tallulah with the help of a powerful medicine woman turns Lucius back into a flesh and blood man. She and Lucius team up to save the hotel, but Tallulah can't help but wonder if he will ever let go of his past love and learn to love again.

Narrator not suited for this

The story is good. Narrator not suited for this. A white noise kept switching back and forth between characters. Wish I could have finished it. I liked the way the story was going.

Amazing Paranormal Romance/Ghost Story

The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle
By: Sharon Buchbinder
Narrated by: Jeffery Hutchins
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I truly enjoyed this paranormal, adventure, romance novel. It was different in that the haunting is not a ghost but someone that is cursed and suspended...he doesn't age and no one can see or hear him for a hundred years. It is a great story that tugged at my heart. It also has great fantasy/paranormal activity such as seeing ghosts, remote viewing, and more. Characters were well developed and quite interesting and the plot was wonderful! I hope there is a book two!
The narrator is a terrific performer. He is able to sound like a various men and women and moved the story forward with perfect speed and emotions.

Horrible Narration

Barely 15 minutes in I had to stop. The narrator is horrible. When the male protagonist was upset, you couldn't tell, it sounded so forced. Also, the voice he does for the female protagonist is screechy.

Hotel Labelle

I truly enjoyed this book. 2 of the characters voiced drove me up a wall. Otherwise the book was exceptional. I would like to listen to more books from this author.

Magical story, but...

I loved this story! It had so much potential but this was truly the worst recording I’ve ever listened to! Terrible editing job! I finished it, Bc I loved the story but man did it really take away from the magic of the story. I know narrating is a very difficult art, I’m hoping this man improves because he actually has a very beautiful speaking voice that would probably be very soothing with the right books but I just don’t think this was the right story for him or maybe he is inexperienced? As well as the horrible static that seemed to skip parts of the story! That almost did me in. I would love to listen to this story again if it were re-recorded! It truly is a magical and unique storyline.

Interesting story, some poor editing

There are several places where all you hear is static. I think the narrator is good and I enjoyed the story.

Not bad but...

There is some type of problem with the sound....several times there was a static sound that came across, disrupting the story. During those times, it was almost as if the story skipped. Made it frustrating for me cause it ruined the flow. Narration was a tad choppy, but that could’ve just been the narrator’s voice for Will....

The story is good but the narration is awful.

I like the book but definitely the wrong narrator for this story. They should have it reread by another narrator, and what's up with the static, added to the irritation.
