Well, all those reviews got it right. A private investigator seeing ghosts just has a sneaky kind of advantage, even if she does run into the side of a fort or try to rescue a cat out of a tree in the middle of the night.
I adore the humour on display in this book. When snickers turn into outright guffaws, startling your house mates whenever you do so at the most inopportune or unexpected times, you can bet I am really enjoying the reading of this book.
Besides, put yourself in the place of Mary O'Reilly , being able to tell Bradley in such an off hand manner that you can see ghosts ever since you died, that is so richly hilarious that you simply have to become even more outrageous subsequently.
I loved this story. I love the basic premise. I love the humour and the main characters of Mary and Bradley and even Rosy and Stanley. I love the easy narrative and the fact that Mary has so many facets to her character. I love that she deals with multiple cases at a time.
In short, this is one major cosy mystery phenomenon. All those reviewers have got it bang on! Enjoy!
I think the cover appealed to me. I think the summary appealed to me. After listening to the sample clip a few dozen times, the narrator didn’t do that much for me. She didn’t make me want to listen to the book. I think I finally got it because I was running out of daytime listening. (Deep, rumbling male voices for night / Bright, upbeat female for day.)
Hell, even the first chapter kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Erin Spencer didn’t impress me as the narrator to enhance the dark and creepy.
But to be honest…the blend of Terri Reid’s writing and Erin Spencer as Mary O’Reilly…well, that’s just gold.
By the third chapter, I was hooked. By the end, I’d acquired an appreciation for the voice I hadn’t liked to start with. Erin Spencer is Mary O’Reilly. (Please don’t let me find out somewhere in the middle of freakin’ 15 books that someone else narrates this series.)
Add the ghosts, the devastatingly handsome police chief, a chewy mystery or two and that’s a recipe for a good afternoon (doing dishes, folding clothes…not stopping the cleaning because you’d have to take out your earbuds to do anything else….)
This is not your typical female running headlong into danger. This is not one where the gorgeous guy saves the day. This is different.
Hell, I enjoyed the whole experience so much, I’ve already purchased the next book. Guess what I’m doing tomorrow…. Well, the house is pretty much clean so yardwork?
Mary and Bradley are just plain fun together - can't help but laugh out loud - but I found the characters of Rosie and Stanley to be a terrific foil to Mary's dry quips. They are the kind of pals we all wish we had: delightfully honest and totally on your side. Lucky Mary!
Gimme more, Ms. Reid - don't keep us wondering about where 'you-know-who' has been for so long! Alive or...???
Loose Ends is a hit!
