Book Review


This book was quality historical fiction in my opinion. I found it extremely entertaining on many levels!  Anna Blanc is a very delightful, fiercely independent character. The Narrator was the perfect medium for this book. She fully brought the characters to life! Jennifer has created one of the most memorable characters that I can remember. Anna Blanc reminds me of the talented young sleuth, Flavia de Luce.

Loved all the interpersonal conflict, tension among the characters. Very well written. Jennifer Kincheloe is a good writer.

Moira Quirk


  • Narrator-Story Connection: 10/10

There’s no doubt in my mind that narrator Moira Quirk was fully immersed in the story. She was the perfect medium.


  • Voice Quality: 10/10

When I heard that Moira was actually from England, I was even more impressed! Her american accent was remarkable. One of the most distinct voices I’ve heard so far. Excellent.


  • Voice Switch Over:  10/10

Perfect. I was astounded at the voice created for protagonist Anna Blanc; not to mention Joe Singer.

  1. Anna Blanc- Utterly mesmerizing. Her voice was very innocent and sweet just like a teenage girl. It made feel like I was transported to 1908 Los Angeles!
  2. Male voice for Joe Singer was pretty convincing. I could sense his frustration through the conflict with Anna the whole way.


  • Pacing 10/10

Pacing was right on the money. Not too fast, slow or lethargic. It kept me on pace with the storyline and engaged the whole way.


  • Emphasis 10/10

Loved it! Moira’s characterization of the characters is amazing. Anna Blanc and Joe Singer are stars of the show, no doubt.  She was able to bring out the nuances of each personality.


  • Reader-Story Connection 10/10

I was fully lost in the story as a result of great narration. What more could you ask for, right? Superb!


  • Sound Quality: 10/10

Publisher: Jennifer R Kincheloe, Ltd. Very professional quality.


  • Overall Performance: 10/10

Highly recommended if you like historical fiction, mysteries. Don’t miss this one. I don’t recall giving out full 10’s for any other audiobook performance. Congrats to Jennifer Kincheloe Publishing and Moira Quirk on a truly remarkable performance.
