Walking and Listening to "The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing"


Turnage, Shiela. The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing. 8 hours. Penguin Audio. 2014, $29.95, ISBN 9781629235158. 


It's hard to imagine enjoying a sequel even more than the first book in the series. Perhaps it was the story itself or the difference between listening to it versus reading it. Whatever the reason might, I loved everything about this book and being able to spend time with Mo and Dale again and see what the Desperado Detective Agency has been up to. 

Practically everyone in Tupelo Landing has shown up for the auction at the inn, with not only the hope of purchasing something, but to see who ends up buying the inn. Wanting to avoid having certain people as her neighbors, Miss Lana becomes the new owner of the inn, not realizing all that comes with the inn since she wasn't aware of the fine print in the contract. What might that fine print reveal you ask? Why, a ghost of course. The inn is haunted. When Mo discovers this, she is quick to decide that the Desperado Detective Agency is on the case, much to Dale'e chagrin. 

Lauren Fortgang does and amazing job narrating this book. Every character is unique and each
character's personality shines through. Also by providing very distinct voices for each of the characters, the story is very easy for the listener to follow. I especially loved Dale's serenade to Newton.

Favorite Chapter Title: Pre-Flunked

I switched my walking route up a bit while walking and listening to this book. I ended up in the tree tunnel and just loved how these plants and trees looked.
