Summary

The first rule of being a ghost whisperer: Don't tell anyone. Seriously. Don't.  

Sure, it might sound harmless. A fun party trick, even. I assure you, it's not. How do I know? Well, let's just say that I've had a lot of experience with this sort of thing, and nine times out of 10, it turns into an all-consuming disaster.  

Being plagued by needy ghosts 24-7 is one thing; being harassed by a horde of curious - or worse, grieving - flesh-and-blood people is an entirely different circus. I mean really, who wants to hold an impromptu seance in the middle of the cereal aisle? Not me, and the manager of the grocery store probably isn't too crazy about the idea, either.  

So, that's it. If you're a ghost whisperer, just keep your mouth shut and act normal. Ghosts? What ghosts?  

Now, if only I would start listening to my own advice....

Substance and Fun

Amanda Ronconi as narrator is perfect for this tale. The ghost element has more depth than in many other of the same genre. Rosie the ghost, in particular. The heroine's voice is upbeat and self deprecating at times but has definite depth and blends the various threads of the story nicely. This is a cozy with substance. Good story, great narrator.

Ghost whisper

This a wonderful and delightful story. The ghosts in the story are very active and interact with the heroine. Can't wait for the next story.

Cotton Candy Fluff .... save it for a library DL

When a story ends, some books leave you wanting more ... and some just leave you wanting. There were some cute/ funny parts, but overall, this was fluff I wouldn't want to ever re listen to... cotton candy fluff. Sweet but no substance.

Nasal narrator w monotonous vocal fry too tedious to finish story.

This may have been an adequate story, unfortunately the narrator makes any attempt at finding out what gift this author may bring to the story too painful to finish. Pls North America, teach audio narrators with vocal lessons to use their full range of their vocal instrument from diaphragm to oral pharynx,lips, tongue, teeth. Not just nose and creaking air through lazy vocal cords, you can do so much more.

Fun and entertaining.

I purchased this book because I really enjoyed the sample. I wished there had been more of her cat, Flapjack, but I guess he wasn't that pivotal to the plot. I enjoyed the narration but there were times when I became frustrated with the ghost Rose. Overall I'm glad I listened to it. I already have the next one in queue for me to start listening to.

A fun book with great characters!

I enjoyed the book and narrator. The story was light but had good twists keeping me engaged wanting more. The “ghostly” characters were funny and made the story!

Pleasant surprise

I enjoyed this book/audiobook more than I had thought I would going into this read/listen. Danielle Garrett has created a great cast of characters to start off this new series. Amanda Ronconu,as usual gave an excellent performance as it all came to life. I am looking forward to the next in the series.
