Secrets to the Grave (on CD) by Tami Hoag

Secrets to the Grave
by Tami Hoag [Compact Disc Hoag]

I received this book on CD for free at a conference, but it is available for check-out at Lincoln City Libraries. I have never read any of Tami Hoag's work before, but I think I will again in the future. This is a great mystery set in the early 1980's. Marissa Fordham, a local free-spirited artist and single mother, has been brutally murdered. Although the town of Oak Knoll is recovering from the previous year's string of serial murders, this murder appears not to be connected in any way. Yet, there's no lack of suspects running around. Everyone loved Marissa, but clearly, someone wanted her dead. This was the first audiobook I've listened to that had the reader doing various 'voices' for the different characters. It got a little tiring, for me, as some of the voices sounded a little hokey--but when there's only one person doing ten or twelve voices, it's going to be challenging, I'm sure. Overall, I really enjoyed the story and was pleasantly surprised by the ending! -- recommended by Tracy T. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Tracy's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]
