Publisher's Summary

Box set of the first three Anna Denning mysteries.
The Witch Tree: Anna Denning Mystery, Book 1
Just days before Christmas in the mountain town of Elk Park, Colorado, genealogist Anna Denning discovers a client's body. When she starts asking questions no one wants answered, she becomes the killer's next target. Still grieving the death of her husband, Anna must draw on her wounded faith to enter a world of Wicca and witchcraft - reminders of a past she buried long ago - and discover the secret of The Witch Tree.
The Witch Tree was a finalist for a 2011 Grace Award.
Sparrow House: Anna Denning Mystery, Book 2
When the owner of a mansion in the Colorado mountains hires Anna Denning to research his family tree, it's Anna's dream come true. A library brimming with old documents, an undiscovered family history - what more could a genealogist want?
Excited by the possibilities and fueled by a new love in her life, Anna, tenacious as ever, is undeterred by rumors that a ghost haunts the mansion. Until she uncovers records that suggest those rumors are more than idle talk.
The Sacrifice: Anna Denning Mystery, Book 3
It's nearly Halloween in Elk Park, Colorado, and one of the Elk Valley Historical Society's founding members, a retired history professor who wanted to hire genealogist, Anna Denning, to complete his secret research into the family trees of two other members, has been found dead - the victim of a brutal murder. When a friend of the victim pleads with Anna to complete the professor's work, Anna agrees. Her decision leads her into a disturbing world of lies, concealed identities, and the occult.
With courage and a hefty helping of stubborn resolve, and facing major changes in her personal life, Anna digs beneath the surface of the past to discover the dangerous secret behind a decades-old murder.

Good story spoilt by passages of trying to preach

Would you try another book written by Karin Kaufman or narrated by Becky Doughty?

Not sure. The storyline was Okay but at times the author forgot she was writing a book and went into overly long passages about "god" and Christianity. Okay so the plot compares pagan witches against "true religion" but really the author needs to realise she is writing a story not a Christian tract. The "preaching" passages could have been cut by 9/10 ths without affecting the plot. Needed a good editor to stop the author getting on this particular hobby horse. Narrator could have been better as she lacked fluidity but I got used to it after a while so didn't affect my enjoyment too much.


If you’ve listened to books by Karin Kaufman before, how does this one compare?

Not applicable


What three words best describe Becky Doughty’s performance?

Precise, dullish, acceptable


Could you see Anna Denning Mystery Series Box Set: Books 1-3 being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

Not unless the director cut outs all the preaching.


Any additional comments?

The author has real potential but she would have to realise that she is writing a story not preaching Christianity. If she can't control her desire to preach she will never achieve her potential.
