Ghost Gone Wild

Ghost Gone Wild
by Carolyn Hart [Compact Disc Hart]

The fourth in Carolyn Hart's latest series, about dearly departed Bailey Ruth Raeburn and her adventures on behalf of Heaven's "Department of Good Intentions". This one finds Bailey sent, under odd circumstances, down to her beloved hometown of Adelaide, Oklahoma, to help protect a young man who has recently returned to town as a successful and rich videogame producer, who is stirring up trouble with old friends and enemies alike. Bailey's "assignment" is made difficult by the fact that she was shanghaied by a fellow Agent from the Department, and her "boss" has no idea she's back on Earth. When Bailey gets trapped in a mortal body, losing the ability to move around at the speed of thought, her mission becomes more precarious. Making things even more complicated is the fact that the reluctant young man she's supposed to protect may have upset the plans of another Adelaide resident to cash in on a missing treasure -- something they are lethally upset about. I enjoyed this title as a book-on-cd, as I have all the other volumes in this series. The audiobook narrator, Ann Marie Lee, has a marvelous reading voice, and does a reasonable job of giving different voices to each of the primary characters. Her southern twang is perfect for this Oklahoma-set mystery series! -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the previous three Bailey Ruth Raeburn novels by Hart.]

[Also available in traditional print format.]
