Publisher's Summary

Unemployed accountant Sophie Masterson never dreams that a trip to Salem on Halloween night will change her life forever. When a birthday gift of a psychic reading is thrust upon her by her best friend, Sophie has no choice but to play along. She wants the winning lottery numbers but, instead, receives something far more ominous-a warning of things to come. Being told her own clairvoyant abilities will soon surface should be enough to send any woman running to hide. Throw in the possibility that something sinister is headed her way and all she wants is an easy out.

When asked to help her brother, the police chief, with some easy filing, she's sure that her problems are over. She now has an income, a job, and a safe haven where she can relax. What she doesn't expect is that one of those files will be the catalyst to set the wheels in motion for the predictions to come true.

Detective Jack Love has a hard time following instructions. When his latest bust gets him benched, and shoved in the cold case filing room, the last thing he expects is to be tasked with babysitting the chief's sister. When unqualified and in-need-of-medication Sophie gets the crazy idea to play detective on a case gone cold, there is little he can do to dissuade her from investigating.

Seriously painful listen

If you enjoy the sound of nasal speech then I suggest you listen to this book. The story itself is ok, but the narrator’s nasal speech is off-putting. I will be avoiding all books narrated by Tess Irondale.

It’s ok

The narration is great, plot line works... should be a great series But... the romance is old... the female lead when is is without the males in the book becomes needy...I made it through book 1 and 2...barely ( I just half listened). I think I will go and read a zombie apocalypse series to get the sugar out of my ears...

Okay stories. Good Narration.

Well this was a long book. It did have "4 stories" however, the first 3 could have been one book to be honest. The 4th story was about different people.

So book one Lifting the Veil was interesting and had my attention. I liked Sophie she was strong and I Jack was kind of immature to me and I wasn't real thrilled with him. But he wasn't the worst. There was some mystery going on here and her abilities come to life. Rather quick really.

The second book, Beyond the Veil was a little better and I liked Marshall with Sophie so much more than with Jack, he was much more mature and sexy. There was a bit of mystery in this story as well. And sex.

The third book, Veiled Intentions was good except at this point I am totally sick of Sophie. Her whole personality just changed she acted like she was the boss, the one with the most experience and knowledge. Really?? She was a graduated accountant (never actually working as an accountant) when she got a job as a file clerk at the police station. But within 8 months she acted like she was totally in charge and knew more than the these guys who have been working security and were Seals. UGH..

The fourth book Veiled Threats was NOT about SOPHIE! YAY! I was so glad. It was about her best friend Amber and Aiden. What a relief.
This might be my favorite, just because I was really sick of Sophie's entitled bossy attitude.

There was a lot of dialogue throughout all 4 books which was great, I love lots of dialogue. There was sex so this was not rated G. Not erotica.



As for the narration, it was pretty good. This was my first listen to Tess Irondale, I would listen to her again. She did the men's voices well and the gave everyone their own voice. She read with emotion and had a nice reading voice.

I did get this book as a free read with my KU subscription and 1.99 for the audible.

enjoyed it!

First read from this author and enjoyed the series. I will be looking into her other books. I enjoyed 1-3 but I felt that the 4th was a waste mimicking the primary story including scenes and verbiage and lacked the luster of Sophie's story all the way around. These are worth the reads for 1-3 and wouldn't waste money on the 4th. Performance was mediocre. passable for the female roles but absolutely horrible male roles. Nonetheless, it was still enjoyable enough to make it to the end.

Good stories, narrator eh

I enjoyed the paranormal aspect of the first story. The balance of skills didn’t seem right to me as she was working with strong and smart folks, but if you can suspend belief for that, the story is satisfying. Book 2 was not as good because it didn’t have much paranormal (just couple proclamations from one secondary character) in it. It felt more like a .5 story if you know what I mean. The narrator was not too bad, but not too good either. The men were difficult to distinguish as most of them sounded the same—she seemed to have 2, maybe 3 different male voices—and they weren’t always consistently used for the same males.

Story OK

The narrator's ability to do voices is really annoying. She really does not do them well. She would be great at straight reading.

Annoying narration and characters

An interesting story in theory, but the delivery of the narrator made it hard to listen to. Not sure why the male lead is supposed to be appealing. I shut it off when he started thinking to himself how he would have "taken" the female lead had she not been his boss's sister. Apparently her complete lack of interest wasn't a concern. Gross.

Mystery & Romance

Good stories, with mystery, romance, could have done without the steamy sex, seemed to distract from the plot. Well narrated by Tess Irondale given audio for my voluntary review and my honest

Good Mysteries

The stories were good with intriguing mysteries. The female characters were a bit whiny while proclaiming what strong women they were. The narrator does a horrible job with the male voices. They either sound like they have a three pack a day smoking habit, or they are gangsters from the 1940s.

Where did my 19 plus hours go?

Don't be daunted by the length of this audiobook. However, be aware that it will be difficult to press pause part way through. (Luckily the series is made up of 4 books so there are natural places to stop or I think my family would not have been fed for 19 hours.) These books are engaging, dramatic, suspenseful, a little magical, romantic and full of action. Sophie is a delightful character who is coming into her clairvoyant abilities while looking for a job. She manages to get one at her police chief brother's precinct, filing unsolved cases. And... wham! She gets sucked into case involving witches and murder. Luckily she is something of a dude-magnet because she has men falling all over themselves to keep her safe. That is, until she finds the right man for her. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. There are several characters from Dixon security who deserve their own story. I really hope there are more books in the series! This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

Intriguing, engaging - great fun :)

It's a greatly enertaining set of paranormal crime thrillers :) All four books (three of which center on Sophie and the fourth on her best friend) keep you involved from the first page to the ending. They are fast-paced, with quite a few twists in the plot and surprises on the way. The main character, Sophie, is likeable though quite stubborn; I like the way she grows up to finally believe in herself in the third book. I also like the way her paranormal abilities help solve the cases. Secondary characters are nicely written, too, especially the love interests of both Sophie's and Amber's. Narration by Ms Irondale is also great; the voices of the characters are recognizable and although some are better done than others, I generally liked the way she interpreted all of them. Generally it's a great bundle of books for fans of paranormal crime thrillers, with a wonderful narration. DISCLAIMER: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

All 4 Books AWESOME

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I Loved All of these audiobooks. "Lifting the Veil" - Awesome "Beond the Veil" - Fabulouss "Veiled Intentions" - Terrific "Veiled Threats" - Wonderful The author introduces Sophie, a Clairvoyant. The love triangle with Jack and Marshall keeps you on the edge of your seat. You cheer for one, then for the other. It is hard to choose. How can Sophie choose? But that doesn't compare to the search for a killer or killers with Sophie's help. These books, 1-3, are follow-on. The 4th is a different romance and a different situation that Dixon Security investigates with two different characters. However, they are connected to the first three books. Love all the intricate stories within. Love how Sophie discovers her powers and what she can do with them. The narrator did an excellent job with all the characters and their personalities. She enhanced the story.

Wonderfully entertaining

This is a wonderful series of stories following the same people throughout all of the books, solving different cases. The brilliant narration makes the box set easy and thrilling to listen to. I enjoyed these books so much I struggled to press stop.
