I received this book for free. I am voluntarily leaving this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

Dr. Diana Braton lives with her daughter, but her medical practice pulls time away from her family life. Her ex-husband [who has remarried] lives nearby but Diana doesn't trust him. Suddenly people around her begin to die and her Aunt Phoebe might be connected to their deaths. Diana does not want to believe that Phoebe is involved. On top of the current murders, a skeleton is uncovered and identified as a boy Phoebe went to college with and went missing back in the 1960's. Dr. Bratton begins to work with the police to hopefully uncover evidence which will lead away from Aunt Phoebe but the more she probes, the more questions she has.

This is a solid mystery which switches from the 1960's when Phoebe was in college to present day. The character development of Dr. Braton and her Aunt Phoebe were fantastic. Her ex-husband was a bit one-dimensional. However, there are plenty of quirky and sinister characters which add to wonderful layers to the story. The setting of the south provided a lot of intrigue to the mystery. There were plenty of suspects and twists to this story, which keeps you guessing as to what really happened.

I listened to this story -- the narrator, Steven Jay Cohen, did a wonderful job in creating the atmosphere of the south with all of the different characters. He enhanced the written word with his narrative and was able to deftly create a feeling of suspense/anxiety.https://www.audible.com/pd/B07K4X6RVD/?source_code=AUDFPWS0223189MWT-BK-ACX0-132576&ref=acx_bty_BK_ACX0_132576_rh_us

Was the Experiment a Success?

I recently conducted a little experiment in book marketing, placing an ad on FaceBook promoting the release of my three mystery/medical thriller novels as eBooks. The materials utilized for the experiment were no more than my laptop, a little electricity, a high speed cable Internet connection, and a credit card --- as well as some spare time that I did not have. (Perhaps I should have spent the minutes moving past page 100 of my work–in–progress, a fourth novel tentatively titled Wiggle Room .) The results of my non-scientific experiment are detailed in this essay and presented in the guise of a blog entry on my author’s website. While it is meant primarily to interest other authors or maybe publishers, I hope the piece is clever enough for my book fans as well. I was intrigued when author Jeffrey Marks recently reported his own experience with advertising on FaceBook, publishing an article and follow-up piece in the Mystery Writers of America newsletter. I decided to see for myself

Listener posts 5 Star Review of the audiobook HOUSE CALL on audible.com

Recently, I’ve gotten into listening to audiobooks on my drive to and from work, so I was thrilled to see that “House Call” had just come out—and I was not disappointed. Narrator Michael Robbins nailed it with his southern dialect and portrayal of the unique characters. Robbins could pass for a Mississippi native! His versatility as an actor came through with other character dialects as well. The narrator added to the professional performance by including an occasional sound effect and a few seconds of introductory and closing music. For me, it was like listening to a movie or play. Now, I feel like I truly know Darden North’s character
