THE BROKEN SPINE Beloved Bookroom, Book 1

by | Read by Allyson Ryan

Mystery & Suspense • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

A library without books? Narrator Allyson Ryan portrays Tru Beckett, a librarian in small-town South Carolina whose library is about to be turned into a "technology center." In this first installment in the Beloved Bookroom Mystery series, Tru rescues hundreds of discarded books in order to open a secret library. But when the town manager ends up dead, Tru and her friends find themselves in a bind. Ryan makes this an easy listen by utilizing her vast range of voices. Each voice is unique--a character might have a subtle Southern drawl, a slight pitch change, or a breathy timbre. Humor, romance, murder, and a cat named Dewey, combined with the narrating talents of Ryan, ensure that this series is off to a great start.
