Hidden Falls: Ordinary Secrets

Episode 1
Written by: Olivia Newport
Narrated by: Rebecca Gallagher
Length: 1 hr and 44 mins

Publisher's Summary

Thirty years of small-town secrets - now the key to the mystery is gone. The small town of Hidden Falls is abuzz. Former students, friends, and loved ones are prepping for tonight's big event to honor Ted Quinn's many years of compassionate service. Quinn is reluctant about a night in the spotlight - but is tenderly prodded by Sylvia, mayor of Hidden Falls and Quinn's dearest friend and confidante.

Ethan and Nicole won't let the shadows of their pasts stop them from returning to Hidden Falls - but only for Quinn - no matter how much it hurts. Liam, a former student, and Jack, a town newcomer, are both hoping the night works toward their own gain--or, if they'll admit it, their chance for redemption. Like Quinn, Dani and Lauren are mainstays in Hidden Falls. They keep close to home--and have secrets to keep close, too.

Now it's time. The guests are seated, introductions are made, the spotlight shines on center stage...and the unthinkable leaves the entire town scrambling for the truth.

A new must-read episode releases every week starting January 24!

Cliff hanger/bait.

This is not a story; it's a set up for you to buy the next. It literally only introduces people and brings them together then ends on a cliff hanger. I refuse to buy more on principle.

dragging

not my cup of tea. Might be a more interesting subject for someone who has never been to a small town or went to a class reunion

Slow

Ordinarily, I like this author. This series just isn’t going to be for me. Pace is tediously slow. So many characters! I’m just going to move on.

On Going Story

on going story that leads you no were in the End . Like in mind sentence.
It was had to Follow . because sometimes thought they were talking about a female when it was actually a male he would sometimes do a male voice. And other times be a girl voice for the mail. That was confusing this is all spelled wrong because I'm doing it with a speakerphone. I don't have my glasses on and I'm leaving it like this

Mystery, History and Someone Who Believes in You

This short listen leaves a person with a lot to ponder. Hurting and mixed up teens found their place and hope for a future in Ted Quinn’s classes at Hidden Falls High School . . . for three decades. And Quinn still teaches there. Best friends with Hidden Falls mayor, Sylvia, Quinn finally agrees to an event honoring his 30 years of service, and students are coming from near and far to visit and see their teacher and friend. But nothing turns out like it’s supposed to. This is a gentle, thought provoking story. I love the tale, of misfits whose teenage hearts are still living in their adult bodies, struggling to come to terms with the successful lives they now lead, and wondering “what if”. What I DON’T like is spending $2 for every installment of the story . . . I wish that Audible would offer the entire series for ONE credit.

very slow

Don't listen in the car or you might just fall to sleep. I felt the character reads sounded to much a like. The story never really had any main roots to keep me connected and listening.

Excellent Audio

Excellent audio I have never read or listen too any of her books. She's an excellent writer I had to get Episode 2 and 3 to keep going. Really keeps you interested in the whole book. The narrator's is excellent too. I am going to see if she has other books.
I would have been happier if I could have gotten the whole audio and not just Episodes , there are 13 of them.

Sluggish

Waiting for something to happen seems to be taking forever. Too much money for a mediocre tale

Hidden Gem

It is like watching a film on HBO ... The characters draw you in and before you know you reached the end of the instalment and wonder what the next will hold.
