My last run in with Blackstone Audio left a bad taste in my mouth. I was hesitant at first but wanted to see for myself if it was possibly a one time thing. I am happy to note it seems to be just that. This book was great and the narrator is even better. I really enjoyed listening to Christine Williams. She made this book very enjoyable. Penny Richards book An Untimely Frost is written in a way that makes it great for audio. It was nice being able to sit back and just enjoying the story. Penny Richards caught my attention and kept it through out the story. I honestly would have been finished with this book a long time ago if life hadn’t kept getting in the way. The pace of this audiobook is great especially with Christine Williams as the narrator. The pace is not to fast and not to slow but just great for listening. It’s like Christine Williams is talking and sharing a personal story with you.
This story revolves around Lilly Long. Lilly Long is an actress turned Pinkerton detective. Her job is to find the owner of an abandon house and see if he’s willing to sell. Along this journey Lilly finds out things that most people want left alone. Lilly is able to make a little advancement into her own personal mystery from her past. Yet in doing so she causes problems for herself in the present by attracting some danger.
Having now listen to a few Mystery audiobooks. I can say that I like this format in audio. It makes it easier to let my imagination roam and create it’s own little movie. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this was the first book in Penny Richards new series. I look forward to the next book and hope it’s as great as this one has been.
