Review: Skeletons

User Review  - Barbara - Goodreads

Really good! I'm sure I enjoy it particularly, knowing New Orleans (and the size of insects there :-) and Mardi Gras, the plantation tours ('specially Oak Alley and Nottoway), and Audubon and other uptown parks as I do. And familiar as I now am with the Pacific Northwest. Read full review

Review: Skeletons

User Review  - Connie - Goodreads

I got the book on book audio and the reader voice was not that great. I thought there would be a little more spookiness to the book. So if you are looking for a good ghost story this is not it. Over all a good read. Read full review
