Description

How come nobody ever sees Miranda Ogilvy - except one smoking-hot neighbor and one stone cold killer?

The tiny village called “Minokee” (Seminole for “alligators all over the place”) is chock full of mysteries like that, and like:

Who is the hunky neighbor, Shepard Krausse, how in heck did he find the invisible Miranda, and why does such a nice guy have such deadly enemies?

Who killed Miranda’s Aunt Phyllis?

Is Shepard’s guide dog, Dave, really the smartest guy in town?

Why does old Miz Cleary keep a loaded rifle beside her front porch rocking chair?

The big question for readers of this quirky novel is, “Who (or what) will find Miranda before Shep’s homicidal enemies do?”

Get Finding Miranda, book one of the Minokee Mysteries series. You’ll want to re-listen to it for a dose of sunshine whenever you’re feeling down!

Look for book two, The Mammoth Murders, coming in late 2019.

Critiques

"Meet Miranda Ogilvy, a librarian who is like a ghost: she is invisible, except there is a blind man who sees her and a hired henchman out to kill her. When her aunt suddenly dies, leaving Miranda an old cottage in Minokee, she leaves Miami. But this doesn’t resolve the problem as people still don’t notice her. Only a handsome neighbor and the man who murdered her aunt seem to be aware of her. The reader is pulled into a tale of intrigue, mystery, and corruption, and a strange woman’s life on the line. But can Shepard Krausse and Dave protect her from those determined to take her down? 

Finding Miranda by Iris Chacon is a gripping treat for fans of the paranormal, narrated in an absorbing and clear voice by Joshua Bennington - and I enjoyed the drama and the pacing, well captured in the narrative tone. The narrator speaks as though they are actually in the story, allowing the suspense to come out clearly, together with the tone and the strong voice. I enjoyed the strong setting, the plot lines and the sense of mystery that permeates the entire narrative. 

Readers will want to know what happens to Miranda from the moment they meet her. It’s hard to say from the start if she is cursed or if she possesses a unique skill that makes her live like a ghost, but whatever happens, readers are compelled to listen to the story to find out why she is the way she is and what might happen to her. Finding Miranda by Iris Chacon is an intriguing narrative, a beautiful story beautifully told. The prose is excellent, the pacing fast, and the character development stellar. It’s a very engaging story that will keep you awake through the night." (Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite)

A Chick Book

My wife and her friends listened to the book and fell in love with the narrator. I am not into romances but felt that I had to rate the audio book on how it went over with the girls.

A nice cute romance novel

I loved this charming audio-book because I could listen to it with my daughter. Some romance books are almost shameful with so many sex scenes. We both adored the narrator. Joshua Bennington. He has a mesmerizing voice and we were awed at the life he gave the characters.We recommend the audio-book highly and gave it 5 stars.

A delightful romance

The story was a delightful clean romance good for all members of our family. Even grandma got a kick out of it. We liked the narrators' characters, they gave the story a little more life! Good audio book for a car trip because the chapters were short. I only like to stop between chapters. The family recommends Finding Miranda and gives it 5 starts. .

The invisible Miranda becomes the visible Miranda

A young lady thinks she is invisible to everyone around her but becomes visible when she finds love. The narration of this book was very good, he was able to give the characters life. The story line bounced around a little but then it is a fantasy.. I believe you will find the audio book well worth buying.

delightful audio-book romance

A nice clean romance set in the back county of Florida. Young lady meets handsome rich blind young man. They fall in love and live happily ever after. Of course they run into problems along the way! That's the story. Simple but charming. It was great to listen to it as I drove to work. .I gave it a 5 because I could easily understand the plot and still drive..

CINDERELLA LIVES IN A FLORIDA SWAMP

The family listened to a promotional copy of Finding Miranda while we were driving to my parents home some 6 hours away. My husband was not as crazy about it as the girls and I.were. Everyone listened to the audio-book. The story was a clean romance that was very entertaining and delightful and sometimes amusing and charming.. Iris Chacon wrote well and the story has a good flow. The girls and I really liked Mr. Bennington's voice . At first we thought audio book had two or three narrators, but then we realized that all those voices were from Mr. Bennington. That alone gave the audio-book a 5 stars.review.

A sweet and heartwarming romantic comedy with a bit of intrigue thrown in.

In the beginning Miranda appears to be a shy, invisible and unassuming librarian who is contented to remain unseen until her neighbor and his dog run into her life early one Sunday morning. Though Shepard is blind he see the beautiful woman Miranda truly is. The novel is narrated wonderfully by Joshua Bennington who's voice is deep, dark and sensual.
