Narrator Review: Amanda Ronconi


Amanda Ronconi, does another outstanding performance in Chance of a Ghost the fourth in the Haunted Guesthouse Series. She really brings out the personalities of the characters as well as reading the text parts so well they blend right in. She never, and I mean never, fails to to deliver a first class performance. I lose myself completely when listening to her. Some (a few) narrators do a good performance and fail on reading the text parts, so they sound just like that, something being read. I have had nothing but a great listening experience with Amanda Ronconi

Alison Kerby, and her resident ghosts take us on a hilarious ride of a lifetime.
If you read/listened to the first three in the Haunted Guesthouse Series, you know now that the testy and mercurial Maxie Malone, has managed to leave the house and pops into Alison's car or just really anywhere Alison is when outside the house. Maxie doesn't know exactly how she achieved this ability but, she's pretty happy about it. Poor Paul is just getting better at moving material objects. Both ghosts would like to move on in the spirit world and sadly as Paul puts it, "being dead did not come with manual".  Alison, is not thrilled having Maxie popping in an out.

After (Book 1, Night of the Living Deed) Maxie pushed a heavy can of spackle onto Alison's head giving her a  concussion, and the ability to see ghosts. In Book 4, Alison knows her daughter Melissa, and her mother can also see ghosts. This provides some very entertaining dialogue between the ghosts and the gals, especially when there are "civilians" in hearing distance. The guests from the Senior Tour, are there just for that ghostly experience which Maxie and Paul provide twice a day and are a bit smug about being in on the ghosts whereas the normal guests have no idea about the hauntings.

Alison, accidently discovers her mother Loretta is seeing another man, or another ghost actually. She had been connecting with her husband every Tuesday since his death but, for the last three weeks he has not shown up and she is very worried about him. When Alison finally gets to the bottom of what her mother is up too, she meets with the ghost of Lawrence Laurentz a small time actor. Lawrence goes about things backwards when he tries to convince Loretta, that he knows where her husband is and he can help him. Lawrence, is a rather pathetic guy with personality issues. Like, no one likes him. 

When it gets down to the nitty gritty, Lawrence wants Alison to find out who killed him. His death certificate indicates death from a heart attack, but he swears someone killed him by dropping a toaster in the tub while he was bathing. Even though neither EMS nor the police found a toaster in his bath, he is adamant that an unseen person did drop a toaster in his bath water. Alison, gets deeply involved trying to uncover who the culprit is. It is during a production by some senior citizens doing Peter Pan that Alison has an inspired idea of how someone could have dropped a toaster in Lawrence's bath, resulting in Lawrence seeing the toaster but not the perpetrator. Now to find out who did this and why, is what Alison has to piece together.
