Summary

Karis Booth has had psychic abilities for as long as she can remember. But this is the first time she’s used them to solve a murder.

Things are changing rapidly for Karis. As well as filing for divorce from her unfaithful husband, she decides it’s time to make peace with her estranged sister, Erin. With trepidation, Karis visits the café which Erin owns. To her great relief, Erin welcomes Karis back into her life with open arms.

During their reconciliation, a young woman, Carmel, calls into the café with a bread delivery. As Karis watches Carmel, she experiences a strong psychic vision. She sees two shadows following Carmel. Only one of the shadows belongs to Carmel - the other belongs to the person who is going to murder her later that day.

With help from her sister and an old neighbor, Karis does all that she can to find out who murdered Carmel. It doesn’t help that the investigating officer is an ex-boyfriend who broke up with Karis because he couldn’t cope with her psychic abilities. Despite this, Karis won’t rest until she finds the killer.

Enjoyable book let down by narration

This very light hearted story was enjoyable, but the narrator was very strange, putting emphasis in the wrong parts of a sentence and not knowing how to pronounce a variety of words, even mispronouncing ‘drawer’ - it was quite off putting.

Read the Book

I liked this British cozy mystery! I enjoyed Ms Fernsby’s Brimstone Witch Mystery and was thrilled when I checked and saw she had two more releases for March. I begged and received a promo code and regret it. I’m heartsick to rate it low and NOT recommend one of her books.
At first, when I listened to the sample and realized the narrator had a British accent, I expected no less than Ms Fernsby submerging authenticity.
However, the recording was atrocious. A three hour true cozy should not take me five bloody days to get through! I had immediately downloaded the audio and cringed. I thought I would babystep listen for twenty minutes at a time. I had not expected to start over twenty times because I was just trying to get through it, and not listening.
Read the book. Gift the book. I’m going to buy the book and give a justified review on the book version.
The story itself was charming. The characters were interesting, whenever I was able to tune out the echo-y sound. It really sounded like the narrator was in an empty closet or small room.
I would never pick up another book if it is narrated by Sangita Chauhan.

cute story, bad Narration

the story was light and funny, and it kind of reminded me of me and my sister.
I would recommend this to anyone that just wants get away for a few hours.

The Narration however was a different story. When I listened to the sample it wasn't so bad, but after 15 or 20 minutes into the book, I couldn't stand it anymore. Her voice was great, but the recording was awful. like she was talking though a tin can the whole time.

A Detective Story with a Touch of the Paranormal

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I did enjoy the light storyline and liked the characters and the way they intermingled. The interesting mystery that needed to be solved with psychic help, has a cute twist to it. I found it funny that one of the characters you want to dislike, was never truly part of this story. The undeserving husband who makes but a cameo appearance still manages to raise the hackles of everyone he comes in touch with. So much for psychic reading capabilities... What was she thinking when she married him????
The recording unfortunately was atrocious. I'm not criticizing the narrator as I don't think it her fault. It is the quality of the recording I have issues with. The sound was tinny and quite annoying. Not a studio recording I feel. It could have been so much better with a professional recording setup. I hope Sangita Chauhan can prove herself a better narrator in the right environment.

A Deadly Listen

A Deadly Delivery
: April Fernsby

A cute British Cozy Mystery. I love the setting and the characters were interesting.

The narration was irritating. Sangita Chauhan's voice was ok, but whatever recording program was used had a metalic hollow sound.

British Cozy Mystery

This is the first book in the Psychic Cafe Mystery series. I have been enjoying a few paranormal cozy mysteries lately so I decided to give this one a try. The story is set in a small town in England. Sometimes, I have a hard time with British accents but the narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life.

This story was interesting and kept me interested from beginning to conclusion. There is suspense, danger, psychic visions, humor, and an old fling as the main detective. The plot is clever and there are a few twists I did not see coming.

I’m looking forward to book 2 in this short fun cozy mystery series. Hope there will be a touch of romance in the next book.

Horrible Recording

I think it was a decent enough book read by a decent narrator... to bad it was recorded in a deep well with a fifty year old mic. It’s also a UK book, so it’s slow moving... but mainly it’s just PAINFUL to listen to.

Great Book!

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. The narrator did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

good story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review

Karis has physic abilities and has premonitions. When visiting her sister at her sisters bakery, she has a premonition regarding one of the delivery drivers. She is able to help with the investigation with an old friend.

The narration was ok, but there did seem to be some technical issues with the recording, almost like an echo.

Seeing is Believing

A woman's clairvoyant gift shows her a murder in a small town. When the subject of her vision ends up dead, she sets out to find the murderer - with or without the help of the local police.
This story has a healthy helping of charming small town life blended with a nasty murder and an even nastier murderer. Well written with an interesting heroine who,s finding herself after a divorce, dealing with the stigma of her paranormal abilities and mending fences with childhood friends and family.
An entertaining read that's not too dark.
