Summary

Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there's no such thing as normal. 

Meteorologist Zoe Parker put Everlasting in her rearview mirror as soon as she had her college degree in hand. But when Sapphire, her eccentric great-aunt, takes a tumble down the stairs in her lighthouse home, Zoe returns to the tiny fishing hamlet to look after her. Zoe has barely crossed the county line when strange things start happening with the weather, and she discovers Sapphire's fall was no accident. Someone is searching the lighthouse, but Sapphire has no idea what they're looking for. Determined to ensure her aunt's ongoing safety, Zoe promises to expose the intruders, even though it means staying in Everlasting and confronting the past she thought she's put behind her. 

Dane Stanton never expected to see Zoe standing in the middle of her aunt's living room and is even more unprepared for the flood of emotion he experiences when coming face to face with his old flame. Zoe is just as independent and determined as he remembers, and Dane knows she won't rest until Sapphire can return to the lighthouse in peace, so he offers to help her sort things out. 

Armed with old legends, Sapphire's ten cats, and a talking ghost, Zoe has to reconcile her feelings for Dane and embrace her destiny before it's too late.

good fun read

I really enjoyed this quirky cosy mystery book. It includes a lighthouse, 10 cats, a ghost and crazy weather and that's all before you get to the mystery and the gorgeous man installing the kitchen. You never know what will happen when you need to go help a great aunt after she's had a fall.

Audible version

I like Jana Deleon’s other books, so I thought I would enjoy this one. The story is okay if predictable. The narration was not appropriate for this book. It sounded more like he was talking to a child. If I pick any more of her books, it will be text only.

Cute beginning to a new series

Jana DeLeon has written a cute beginning to a new series. I enjoy her Fortune series a lot more. This story had an original storyline. If you enjoy cozy paranormal mysteries, you won’t want to miss this one.

Meh...

I love Jana DeLeon and have read/listened to all of her books (some multiple times). This one just seemed to fall short. There is a main story but no little supporting stories. It is an okay plot, but nothing like her Miss Fortune series. The narrator should have been a female in my opinion since the main character is female. I am giving 3 stars because it is a good book, just nothing I would write home about.

Awful narration - returning 1 hour in

This sounds like a children's book. Also, when did people from Maine have a bad British accent? It's atrocious and I usually like little fun cozies like this but this one was awful. It's really too bad. I couldn't get more than an hour in before the narration became so bad it was insulting. In order to submit this review I had to put a star for "story" I don't know how good the story could've been because the narration stopped me from continuing

So darn cute!!

I wanted a light, easy audiobook to listen to on a tedious day at work. I thought it would boost my mood, and it did. Such a cute book. A little mystery, a little paranormal. Fun small town setting mostly taking place in a lighthouse. And how nice would it be to have a Cornelius for company. :-) I would describe this as a quick or beach read as it's not a lot of substance, but that is what I wanted and I was happy with it!

Great book

The plot and story was so much fun to listen to, and the narrator was so perfect for this book, I really enjoyed it, and look forward to reading and listening to more books like this from author and narrator.
