pleasantly surprised

If you could sum up Firefly Beach in three words, what would they be?

A enjoyable listen

What did you like best about this story?

The narration was excellent, with not to many characters to confuse the listener, making following the story while working on my computer, easy and enjoyable.

What about Donna Postel’s performance did you like?

Usually find, sorry not being sexist, American female narration a little irritating. This was a excellently narrated story

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Follow your heart.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend

Pleasantly surprised

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, because the book has a good, if slightly unusual, story line. The characters are well-drawn and totally believable, as is the back-drop of Maine. I enjoy stories in the fantasy genre but often these are a bit far-fetched, but this story did not stretch my credibility. Donna Postel is the first American female whose performance has not annoyed me by being either over-acted or their tones grate. She has a gentle voice with good characterisations.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Firefly Beach?

I have one, but it would be a bit of a spoiler to mention it.

Have you listened to any of Donna Postel’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I will be looking out for more read by her.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

At times, yes. It is not exactly "sitting-on-the-edge-of-the-chair" exciting, but I have found I have still be listening to it well after midnight (way past my bedtime!).

Any additional comments?

Perhaps Audible will consider having her previous book Nine Tenths and her soon to be published Celtic Sister recorded. Hope so.

Summer Beach Read really different

This book is probably not for you if you like your books fast and erotic. I loved it. It is a long time mystery, with a little magic and the right characters to draw you in. I enjoyed the timing but it is not a flash. I am counting this as my summer beach read.

Beth finds herself being lead down the path of young girls life who disappeared from the house she is renting 20 years ago.
