I’ve just sent the second Andorra Pett audiobook, Andorra Pett on Mars, to ACX quality assurance.
I was looking for a narrator who would capture the soul of the story and bring it to life.
I found Lianne Walker. As I listened to her treatment of my words I saw them in a new way, she cleverly added little touches that emphasised the action and emotion. Take a listen to the sample and you’ll see what I mean. I just hope that she’s willing to help me produce the rest of the series.
Everyone said it was suicide, but were they right?
Andorra Pett’s ex turns up, with some bad news. Her best friend Maisie has killed herself, on Mars.
Trevor doesn’t believe it. Neither does Andorra, it just wasn’t like her. He wants Andorra to come back with him, look around and see if she can find some answers.
Despite her misgivings, Trevor’s paying and says she can take Cy with her. It’ll be a cheap holiday! What can possibly go wrong…
It soon becomes clear that there’s a lot more going on. Rival gangs, hidden messages and new friends all point Andorra towards a much bigger story.
What was Maisie caught up in?
“A plethora of eye rolls, snickers, and outright laughs! “
“Brilliant and humorous adventure”
Here’s a review of the eBook,
Andorra Pett returns for more hijinx bringing her brand of drama and action down from the space station orbiting Saturn to the red dusty plains of Mars. Leaving her cafe, her life with new-squeeze Derek for the funeral of a best friend from years gone by. But nothing, as usual for Andi, is as it seems. A suicide that seems suspicious, hidden ill-gotten gains in the canyons of Mars, her ex Trevor up to no good and two different groups of mobsters on her tail, this would not turn out to be a quiet visit for Andorra and her best friend Cy.
Unsurprisingly Andi and Cy find themselves limping from one dramatic situation to another from the moment Trevor shows up on the station to seek her help down on the red planet. From the very start trouble follows her in the form of personal shadows from two mob gangs and the police and the constant suspicion that Maisie didn’t take her own life and that nothing Trevor says seems to be entirely truthful.
Once again Richard Dee has crafted an entertaining, light hearted story that brings twists and turns throughout. It was a wonderfully warm and cozy feeling returning to a cast of familiar characters in Andi and Cy, getting to properly see Trevor who was only really referenced in the first Andorra Pett book, alongside cameos from Maz and Derek. A new supporting cast also bring something fresh to Andorra Pett on Mars, while the book retains its style that firmly ties in to the first book.
In need of a book I could pick up and find myself instantly enthralled with, I turned to this and it very much lived up to my expectations. The story moved quickly yet never once did it feel rushed. The menace was always there but did nothing to overpower the lightness that now feels like the style of Dee and his Andorra Pett books. Considering I work full time I ploughed through this book in a matter of four days from start to finish and immediately wanted more.
Here’s Chapter 1,
As I said, the narration is by Lianne Walker. You can find her here,
