Great Book

This was an awesome book! I easily finished it in a day. The description of New Orleans was so vivid, it made me want to visit. My friends & I are planning our next Girls Trip (HA) to New Orleans. Also, the storyline was awesome, twists, turns, and a very nice and unpredictable plot! Excellent writing!! The only thing that could’ve complimented this book would’ve been to have someone from New Orleans or someone who could speak with that same accent, narrate the book. This was a great read regardless!! I look forward to listening to some more from Ashli Armant.

Summer mystery-solving adventure!

This is a really fun YA mystery adventure. I'm waaaayyyy past my teenage years but I enjoyed it immensely. The narration, music and production was excellent. The story was intriguing and as I'll probably never get to visit New Orleans myself, I really appreciated the glimpses of that precious, fabled city. Viva is one sharp young lady, resourceful and brave. And, of course, persistent!

iPhone lighthearted New Orleans detective story

t this was an entertaining Novela bringing in the flavor of New Orleans, it’s food music and culture. The narration did a great job with just a few slight miss pronunciations of local streets. Of course, maybe it’s just because of the neighborhood I come from.

Hmmm.. maybe this is a young teen book..Oh WAIT!

It is for sure a teen book. And a young adult book. And an adult book. And middle-agers... and especially for this 74 year old child.
