Enjoyed

Got into this book straight away and it kept me engaged throughout. This is the first book in the series and you will need to read the next one to find out the ending. Although I enjoyed this as an older reader I think it is also suitable for younger readers. The narrator was excellent.

Rose are red ..ummm just get this book.

Wow, No you can't just stop there!!! I am only going to do a short review because I am off to start listening to the next book. As you probably can tell I really enjoyed this book, it is not my normal choice of listening material but the blurb sounded interesting and once I got past the tears I was hooked. It is a slow build up to the conclusion but what a build up it is. I listened to it all in one sitting as I wanted to find out what was happening next. I liked the main character and the author has a way of writing that had me feeling the emotions along with her, as well as the suspense and mystery.
To lose someone is hard for anyone but when it is a thirteen year old girl and the person to die is her sister it is especially hard. When she withdrawals into herself her parents do the right thing by sending her to a shrink. But how can she tell the shrink her dead sister is writing to her when she doesn't believe it herself? Her dead sister's treasured dairy soon starts turning into a waking nightmare when previously blanks pages start turning up shaky handwriting that belong to her sister. With her two best friends Jacqueline must peace together the few clues her sister is leaving her to try and find out what her sister is so desperate to tell her that she is willing to let everyone believe her little sister has gone mad.
I really liked the narrator and found her emotional voice tugging at the heart strings.

Enjoyable experience

I was given a code for this book, where by I promised to leave an honest and voluntary review on audible once I'm done.

I really enjoyed this book from the start, it draws you in quickly. It's brilliantly written and the narration is superb, Jess Combs brings the characters to life.
I'm looking forward to the 2nd book.
it's worth an easy 5 star.

Who Killed Sandra

The Rose Diary
: Curtis Maynard

Amazing!!!

This novel is part murder mystery, coming of age, paranormal with characters that are believable. A group of tweens are out to help solve the murder of one of their older sister. The premise is good with the youngsters helping the police instead of doing it all themselves. The end has a cliffhanger.

This held my interest from start to finish. Now listening to the second book.




The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Jess Combs.

Great Teen Paranormal Mystery!

This book is very well written. I’m not familiar with this author and I don’t read many mysteries but after reading this book I’m a big fan of this type of mystery. The author did an amazing job writing this book. It is so captivating and really hard to put down.

Narration was excellent! I was so enthralled with the story and the narrator brought it to life. There is nothing like listening to a great book by a very talented narrator.

I usually hate cliffhangers but this one was on point. It was the perfect spot to give hope and make you want to find out what happens next. I want to read the next book ASAP!

The Rose Diary

Warning, this book end with a cliffhanger, but it is so worth it. A great paranormal mystery that I was invested in from the very beginning.

The author, Curtis Maynard, painted a vivid picture of what was going on. The characters were well developed, and the story drew me right in.

The narration added to my enjoyment. Jess Combs brought the characters to life and did a great job with expressing the emotions.

Great listen

I didn't know what to expect going into this Audio and was surprised with the emotional depth within. I was invested in the story from the beginning and didn't want it to end. The narrator did a fantastic job of drawing you in and keeping you engaged in the lives of the characters. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Great!

Really enjoyed the listen, very easy to follow. Only annoyance is the pronunciation of the main characters name but that's just me
