Audio Book Release: The Cavanaugh House by Elizabeth Meyette @efmeyette
Romance Plus Mystery Equals a Good Listen
Thanks for inviting me to your gorgeous blog, Bethany-Kris. I’m excited to share the news about an entirely new venture for me – an audiobook version of The Cavanaugh House. I have been a book “listener” for years, so to actually hear my characters speaking was amazing! My narrator, Amy McFadden, captured the tone of the book and the attitude of my protagonist, Jesse Graham, perfectly. While The Cavanaugh House doesn’t follow the usual conventions of a romance novel because it is told entirely from Jesse’s point of view, the romance between her and the hero Joe Riley is a main plot strand in the mystery. Thanks for letting me share the news with your readers.
The Cavanaugh House excerpt:
This house held secrets. Secrets that wafted through rotting window sashes on the winter wind. Secrets that spiders wove into webs anchored between the ceiling and walls. Secrets that scuttled on the feet of cockroaches across stained kitchen linoleum and scurried into its cracks. Secrets that peered from holes in the baseboard from glinting mouse eyes. This house held the secrets close to its bosom where they had slept for decades. No one had disturbed these secrets in all the years the house sat decaying from neglect. There was no reason to, and there was no desire.
The Cavanaugh House blurb:
When Jesse Graham unlocks the door to the deserted house she inherited from her Aunt Helen, she doesn’t realize she’s unlocking secrets that had lain dormant for years. Reeling from a broken engagement to acclaimed musician Robert Cronmiller, Jesse wants to leave the city where her name is linked to his in all the society pages. Her best friend Maggie, aka Sister Angelina, convinces her to take a job at a private girls’ school in the pastoral Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. Anticipating a quiet, revitalizing life in her aunt’s deserted house, Jesse is instead thrown into a maze of danger. Questions about her aunt’s death lead Jesse to investigate events surrounding it and the people involved, but she uncovers a web of deceit that reaches far beyond the occurrences of over two decades earlier. Still dejected from her broken engagement, Jesse finds it difficult to trust anyone, even her self-absorbed mother. Joe Riley is irresistible, but secrets obstruct involvement with him until Jesse can solve the secrets of the Cavanaugh House. Someone doesn’t want those secrets unearthed and will stop at nothing, even murder, to keep them hidden.
