Vanished, the first book in the Private Justice series, follows reporter Moira Harrisons, who strikes a pedestrian while driving late one night on a wooded road.

Fire the narrator - Celeste Ciulla

Irene Hannon writes stories with amazing credible mysteries , crime scene and a touch of romance.Clean and inspiring.

Celeste ciulla should not narrate these stories. Had I not already been familiar with Hannons stories, I would have never finished it.
The narrator sucked, she was obviously not familiar with the story as she lacked the ability to bring the characters to life, and failed to act out the characters. Don't use her again.

A gripping story

This story held my interest from the beginning, despite the rather lame accents the narrator used on occasion. I will definitely look for more by this author.

I couldn’t listen - it hurt

I just couldn’t get into it. I was excited for this series but the narrator and my ears don’t line up. Something about the cadence as she narrates. I like don’t know how to explain. I recommend reading rather than listening to this series though

Story is good. Narrator...not so much.

I like Irene Hannon's stories and was glad to see a new one was available. I wish I had bought the print version instead of the Audible recording. While I found the story good, the narration was not. More than once I turned it off and considered returning it. I'm not sure how to discribe what I so disliked. Celeste Ciulla does not do male voices well and there were many times that I wasn't sure which character was speaking. The thing that really annoyed me was her inflection and emphasis. Many times she sounded like a fifth grader that the teacher warned to watch puncuation and to add emotion when you read. Ms. Ciulla is not whiney or shrill, just flat with force emotion. On the whole the narrator ruined this listen for me. She is certainly not the worst I've heard but I will think twice about using a credit on another of her performances.

Horrible narration!

I couldn’t get past the first THREE chapters. I loved the others. Don’t have Celeste Ciulla narrate any others. Wish I could get a refund!

Good...but

What did you love best about Vanished?

The story line was okay. A bit predictible, but interesting.

Would you be willing to try another book from Irene Hannon? Why or why not?

Yes. It wasn't too bad. Passes the time.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator is the main reason I'm leaving a review. As a person, I'm sure that she's lovely, and she has a great voice. BUT she pauses in all the wrong places and the voices she uses for different characters just doesn't fit. It just doesn't flow and can be very annoying.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nope.

Any additional comments?

Good book, not so good narrator.

Very exciting

Loved this romantic suspense, it was extremely well written and kept me on the edge of my seat. The narrator was excellent as well and really added to the story.

Lots of twists & turns

I love Irene Hannon’s books. I like the character development and the comic relief. Most of all, I enjoy the constant guessing. If you enjoy Christian based romantic thrillers this is the book for you.
