Audio Book Of the Week Tandem by Tracey Batemen

Tandem: A Novel Tandem by Tracey Bateman

Read by Pam Turlow

From Oasis Audio:
As obsession and loss become dark partners, how far must the people of Abbey Hills go to survive? Six months ago, brutal murders shook the small Ozark town—murders that stopped after a house fire reportedly claimed the killer’s life. Lauryn McBride’s family auction house has taken responsibility for the estate sale of one of the victims—the enigmatic Markus Chisom. Submerging herself in Chisom’s beautiful but strange world, Lauryn welcomes the reprieve from watching Alzheimer’s steal her father from her, piece by piece. She soon realizes that centuries-old secrets tie Abbey Hills to the Chisom estate and a mysterious evil will do anything to make sure those secrets stay hidden. Even the man who grew up loving her may not be able to protect Lauryn from the danger. When Amede Dastillon receives an unexpected package from Abbey Hills, she hopes it might be the key in tracking down her beloved long-estranged sister. Visiting Abbey Hills seems the logical next step in her search, but Amede is unusually affected by the town. Two women brought together by questions that seem to have no answers. Can they overcome the loss and darkness threatening to devour them—or will their own demons condemn them to an emotional wasteland?

My Take:  Vampires in a Christian Fiction book.  Who would have thought it but I guess the Christian authors thought they needed to get in on the vampire craze.  This is the second book that deals with vampires by Tracey Bateman and although I have the first one awaiting me on kindle I don't really know if I will read it.  
I liked the story okay and the narrator did okay reading the book.  That sums up my feeling about the book just okay.  I really struggled with the whole vampire finding redemption part of the story.  
I also struggled with the story line about Lauryn and her father.    I just thought Lauryn was a bit to quick to push people away and then feel sorry for herself.   
I received a copy of this book from Oasis Audio for Review purposes.
