Publisher's Summary

Orphaned following a car accident, struggling with her grief, and a burden on her aunt, Miranda Fisher is sent to a boarding school on the Welsh border, miles from her native London. When she returns after the Christmas holiday, she learns that her favorite teacher has left the school, suddenly, and with no apparent reason. Her new house-mistress appears to take an instant dislike to her. Miranda stumbles on information which leads her to believe her life is in danger, however, it proves difficult to convince even her best friend that this is the case. Who was the stranger on the train that seemed so familiar to her? Why did her teacher, Miss Price, leave the school so unexpectedly? Who, or what, is she in danger from? Is the danger real? Or simply the invention of a traumatized mind? Plagued with uncertainty, nightmares, and confusion, she knows that however painful it might be - she must discover the truth, and lay her fears to rest in what is a thrilling and unexpected climax to this taught psychological thriller.

    Story
    "Thank goodness for the end"

    I mean that in both that I was happy the end finally came to this story, and that it totally surprised me. So much so that it almost earned another star. However, it is a pet peeve of mine to have the characters be all good or all evil. This just doesn't happen and it makes the story predictable and drag. That's what this story did ...until the end. I cannot say I'd eagerly listen to a second installment, but I would be curious enough to try it. I thought the narrator did a fabulous job. She was easy on my ears and did justice to what she was given.
    I was gifted this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Easy Listen"
    What did you love best about Miranda's Fortune?

    Miranda was a young, but strong character. Youth vs adults. Good vs bad. We are trained as youngsters to trust adults, but that is not always the case.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Miranda navigated her troubles well. Good always wins in the end.


    Have you listened to any of Nano Nagle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was smooth and easy to follow. The narrator distinguished the many different characters' voices well.


    Any additional comments?

    "Not my favorite"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    I really wanted to like this book and it did start out promising, however further into the start it became very predictable and strange. I wasn't a fan of the characters, I wasn't buying anything they were trying to relay. I got through it, but I wasn't thrilled about the ending either.

    This is one you'll have to judge for yourself...

    Story
    "TITLE SAYS IT ALL"

    Right from the first chapter I figured Miranda was loaded and her Aunt was after the fortune. OOPS SPOILER! This book is the perfect balance of murder, mystery, and humor. A good old fashion story that has you falling in love with the characters. It kind of reminded me of the movie Matilda. A sweet and innocent girl gets sent away to a school by her mean aunt who doesn't want her. At school she finds her favorite loving, caring teacher has been replaced by an evil woman who seems to be targeting her.

    "Murder mystery and suspense !!"



    This book was a suspenseful, satisfying, turner. The narrator smoothly transported you through the plot's twists and turns, hooking you from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

    "I wanted to like this..."

    I would have given this 2 stars, but I like the very end of the story.
    This was a very slow story... took forever to get moving. it just didn't seem to make it for me. I really had to struggle to listen to this till the end.
    I didn't like any of the people in the book I guess , like everything that happened, was just to far stretched.
    I was not to happy with the narrator. When she did one of the voices, she reminded me of the wicked witch in The Wizard Of Oz.
    "ill get you my pretty!, and your little dog too!"

    Story
    "Predictable..."

    I think the targeted audience for this book is the literal young adult. If you’re an adult that enjoys YA, such as myself, then Miranda’s Fortune will be very predictable. I’m still giving this book 4 stars because it is by no means bad, but an older audience might not enjoy it to its full extent. It is also perhaps a little bit too British for my liking.

    The narration is great with only one downfall: sometimes the narrator is literally yelling, and it is so loud and so shrill in my unexpectant ears that it makes me flinch, especially with headphones on. Other than that, I think Nano did a wonderful job and I would not mind listening to more books read by her.

    Story
    "Book was definitely easier on the ears"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, over the narration.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I thought the story was great. Mystery, suspense, nice portrayal of teens and adults and the roles they can play.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Nano Nagle?

    Probably not. Ms. Nagle's narration was off. There is definitely potential. She was able to distinguish the cast of characters. Unfortunately, the jarring spikes in volume, and faltering of delivery threw off the narration. It sometimes felt like I was watching Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde due to the volume differences between the various characters


    Any additional comments?

    I very much enjoyed the story (written). I look forward to reading more.

    "Miranda's Fortune
    : H E Joyce


    The publisher's summary caught my attention. We have an orphaned girl sent to a distant boarding school, her favorite teacher leaves suddenly and new head seems to dislike her instantly. That sets up a good plot, enter mysterious characters, strange happenings, and lots of suspense mixed with teenage angst. This was a good listen, with some unexpected twists.



    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. I almost always enjoy a good UK accent, Nano Nagle provided just that.
