Publisher's Summary

When retired postmaster Albert Schumer is found dead on the steps of the post office, the whole town of Mystic Notch is disappointed he won’t be able to play in the annual checkers tournament.

But when his ghost informs middle-aged bookstore owner Willa Chance that he died trying to deliver an old letter, which has mysteriously gone missing, Willa realizes Albert didn’t just slip and fall. Someone killed him. Even worse, it turns out the letter contains a list of ingredients for a spell that could wreak havoc on Mystic Notch if it falls into the wrong hands.

The good news is that Pandora and the Mystic Notch cats are on the case. The bad news is that Pandora hasn’t made much progress in getting Willa to receive her subtle communications. She’s going to have to step up her game in that area because the cats are depending on her to secure the help of the humans if they want to stop the killer and protect the letter. Lucky thing Willa’s love interest, Eddie Striker, seems to be more receptive to Pandora’s attempt at communication.

Pandora might have a way to help the humans stop the person with the letter, earn the respect of the other cats, and help Willa and Striker realize they are made for each other. Will it work? Let’s hope so, because the fate of Mystic Notch depends on it.

Reader overdramatized

I love Leigh Anne Dobb’s Mystic Notch mysteries. However, this new reader is ruining the experience of this book for me. She reads in an overdramatized exaggeratedly modular voice. I can’t tell if she’s trying to make Willa sound sexy like a character I don’t think she’s meant to be. It can sound a bit like a movie narrator from an old 40’s gangster private detective-movie. Any time the reader distracts and takes me out of the book, I feel I should have bought it on paper, and regret spending my credits on it. The short sample I heard before buying wasn’t enough to convey this. I hope they can go back to the previous reader.

Narration

This narrator has everyone speaking through their noses and almost everyone speaks in the same range.
The previous narrator is much better. Doesn't anyone audition their narrators?

Unfortunately I don’t like the narrator

Couldn’t get through the whole book. I don’t care for the new to the series narrator and halfway through I decided I didn’t want to listen anymore. I’ve really enjoyed the series til now.

I liked Elisabeth Rodgers

I did not care for Hollis McCarthy as narrator. I liked Elisabeth Rodgers much better. she had a great variation to her voice making the characters come alive.

About the reader

I do not necessarily care for the voice of the reader. At times it is normal but sometimes it doesn't sound normal., Rather strange like a ghost herself.
Like LeAnn Dobbs cozy mysteries fine! Would buy more!

Left feeling wanting more

I had a really hard time liking the new person speaking the book in audible. I felt the story was missing the voice from the previous books, it changed the story for me to a simpler story. I would love to see the previous voice read the last book.

Why do you change narrators mid-series!?

I really loved this series by Leighann Dobbs and have waited a while to finally see the audio book available today. Then I started listening. Oh. No. While Hollis McCarthy has a fine voice, it puts me off, too deep and nasal, it vibrates through my Bose speaker making it very very hard to understand. Why did you have to change. This book is going to be returned because I doubt I can get through it. Why. Why. Why. Stop changing narrators mid series!

Feels like a different author

First, there is a new narrator, so if you are listening to the whole series from the start, you will need to prepare for that. It's always weird to get used to a new voice, and this narrator is more dramatic than the last. To me, the narrator feels like she is reading with a "Southern sensibility" rather than a New England one. She's a bit over dramatic and doesn't have the downbeat, guarded feel that comes across in NE. She's okay, but now who I would pick.

In addition to a new narrator, I suspect there is a new writer. The author's name is unchanged, but this book is very different in many small ways. There is a richer sense of place, but there is also a general sense that this author maybe read the last book but no others in the series before writing this one. Many small details are wrong or changed, interactions between characters are not built on what we know about them already, and the final revelation about Fluff's motivations are shockingly out of step with the previous few books' setup.

All-in-all, I'd say this is a fine book, and it would be a good place to start if you are not interested in going back to the start of the series. If you've been listening to these since the start, then it will take some time to get used to the changes, but then you are used to suspending disbelief by this time anyway.

One last thing: another reviewer says this book is unfinished, and that is not true. It does have a "Hardy Boys ending" where there is a clear set-up for a next book, but this is a complete story.

Narrated is absolutely awful

I have loved Leighann Dobbs books about Mystic Notch with Willa and her cat Solving all the problems and I have waited for ages to hear book six in the series of which I am deeply disappointed the book probably is fantastic but the narrator who reads it I cannot listen to Her voice so I haven’t found out whether or not Willa and her cat actually make it through I think she should’ve stayed with the original narrator as she had the book to a T and if the rest of the series is read by this new narrator then I won’t be getting them either
