The Secret of Lonesome Cove

Read by Roger Melin

(4.4 stars; 154 reviews)

A body is found on the beach not far from a New England town one morning. Curiously, nobody recognizes the dead woman, and nobody in or near the town seems to be a suspect in a possible murder, therefore most of them assume that she simply washed ashore from a passing vessel. Only problem is vessels didn't pass that stretch of the coast because of it's peculiar tides and eddies; hence its name, Lonesome Cove. Following the finding of the body, the officials of the town start acting a bit peculiar towards how to handle the dead body. The sheriff, the attorney in the town, the village gossip, and even the town doctor all seem to want the identification of the body hushed up. And therefore the body is immediately buried, and the officials hope all will be forgotten and done with. Cause of death: drowning. Enter Chester Kent, who isn't convinced in the same way that the townspeople are, and is willing to pull at his ear lobe in an effort to determine the identity of the body, and how it came to it's demise. (Introduction by Roger Melin) (7 hr 33 min)

Enjoyable book

(5 stars)

The summary covers the plot. I enjoyed this story as a good mystery with some really neat twists. It kept my interest. Roger M is an excellent reader and also does a nice job with his intros. Thanks Roger!


(5 stars)

As another reviewer said, mystery and romance, what more can you want? The kind of mystery that leaves you slapping your forehead at the denouement, and the kind of romance that leaves you quietly happy. Another great reading by Sir Roger Melin!

Solid mystery story and good reader

(4 stars)

I really enjoyed this mystery story from an author whose books I'd never read before. Although the narrator doesn't do different character voices, his reading is *very* enjoyable, his voice is easily understandable and pleasant to listen to, and he doesn't make errors like I've heard in several other books. (Because of a disability, I listen and read along with the Kindle book at the same time. Roger's reading was spot on.) All in all, I would recommend this book and Roger Melin as a reader.

(4.5 stars)

Very great and a well written book. The plot and narration are very great. Roger is one of the best narrators and I just got into to this story from start to finish and had a hard time waiting to find out what happened and how !

murder and romance - what's not to like!?!

(3.5 stars)

Interesting mystery/romance with twists. Well narrated by Roger Melin (his usual). Nothing offensive - it's a classic after all. Recommended.

Amusing but, not Mysterious

(3 stars)

This was hard to enjoy due to the strangely boring Professor, and allegedly innocent trap he fell into, which was convoluted, at. best.

fun and intriguing mystery

(4.5 stars)

Mistaken identity, unknown corpses and more conundrums puzzle our slueth but he solves them all. He even oversees the the happy ending.

awe - ending the best part -

(5 stars)

Roger - thank you again&again for your precious time - awesome story - quite interesting -
