Publisher's Summary

The Secret, Book & Scone Society: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Miracle Springs is a place of healing. Strangers flock there hoping the natural hot springs, five-star cuisine, and renowned spa can cure their ills. And, if none of that works, they often find their way to Miracle Books, where, over a fresh-baked scone from the Gingerbread House bakery, they exchange their stories with owner Nora Pennington in return for a carefully chosen book. That's Nora's special talent: prescribing the perfect novel to ease a person's deepest pain and lighten their heaviest burden. 

But when a visiting businessman reaches out to Nora for guidance, he's found dead on the train tracks before he can keep their appointment. Determined to uncover the truth behind the businessman's demise, Nora forms the Secret, Book, and Scone Society, and, as the society works to untangle the web of corruption surrounding the murder, they also discover their own courage, purpose, and a sisterhood that will carry them through every challenge.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Don't like the background music

Background music too distracting, recommend music in the places where it goes in a mystery movie!

Stop the Muzak

I liked this book enough to purchase the second one. The storyline was great, the characters mostly believable --- except Bob, the bartender --- but the music was very off-putting! I felt like I had tuned in to an old soap opera.

A good listen while driving!

Music?

The book was quite good but why the music? Awful! This was worse than having to see someone else’s pictures of a book! I almost couldn’t finish it!

Music in the background a distraction

Not sure who thought the music would add to the book. It is an incredible distraction and prevented me from entering into the narrative.
For me it ruined the story. If there is a way to remove it or shorten it to chapter changes that would be best. NOT a Value Added

Music

I don’t know why they have starting adding music to the books, but I find it very distracting. Storyline isn’t too bad and the reader is fabulous.

Leave Out the Music

I enjoyed this first book. But there was music that was tinny, unnecessary and distracting.

great story, good writing, poor production

I loved this story, however, the background music the whole way through was distracting and bothersome. It took away from the story.

Cute Story but...

...I did have an issue with them “background” music. I personally found it distracting. I have 50% hearing loss, so it was like being in a room with several conversations going and I had to struggle to hear the the story. Maybe had the music been plotted down a bit more.. but cute story!!!

Terrible narration and music

I could Not even get through this book because of the music, which was so irritating that it gave me a headache. I don’t think I even made it through the first chapter. Whoever the aspiring screen composer was should stick to his/her day job.

Worse the narrator spoke in a monotone, sounding like she was in a deep depression. Just in case it was a poor interpretation of the character, I tried the first few minutes of the second book in the series. Nope! Even though there was slightly more delineation among characters, the narrator simply sounds bored. Since I had bought all three books in the series, all three will be going back.

Great story awful music

Is there any way to switch the irritating music off? It doesn't complement the story and gets increasingly annoying and distracting especially when it overwhelms the softly spoken narrator. I don't think i could listen to any more of these much as I like the story, main character and narrator.

Overbearing background music

This is the first audiobook I’ve encountered that has background music. I found it at times overpowered the narrator. I would love to continue the series but not if they have the same set up. Which I hope not as enjoyed the story.

Enjoyable cozy

Interesting and likable characters and storyline. First audible I have listened to with music and can’t say I’m a fan. Music too loud and distracting. I listen to at least one book a week and first time I’ve had headache . Luckily I’m an Ellery Adams fan.
