Reviews

Nice little short story with an unexpected conclusion

(4 stars)

This was a sweet little short story, the plot of which is adequately summed up in the story blurb. It's so short there's not a lot of characterization work, but solving the mystery is an up-and-down journey. Also, Carolin did an excellent job narrating!

(3.5 stars)

A decent short mystery with an enjoyable ending I did not expect. I'm appreciative of it as I wasn't as drawn into the story or characters as I usually am, probably because the story's length didn't really allow for it.

(5 stars)

A short, pleasant story. A mystery is solved. I wish the story had gone on longer. As a critic of Carolin's earlier readings I am pleased to hear her much improved narration. Great job.

Good Short Story

(4.5 stars)

Really enjoy all of AKG books, I found this great app by chance and she was the first author I have listened too and I cant stop until Im done with all her books. I was not very thrilled about the reader at first but now she is one of my favorites. Thank you Carolin for your time.

Lovely short story
