I'm a somewhat new fan of Lorhainne Eckhart's books. I actually have about all of them in Kindle format but just haven't made time to read them. As a fairly new audiobook addict, I've jumped at the chance to receive some of her audios in exchange for a review, including this one. The only problem with this is that I've listened to her series out of order. It didn't matter for some of the books but I really wished I'd read books 6-9 in order.

That being said, Leave the Light On was a wonderful book and I don't regret listening to it out of order. I know this sounds like I'm contradicting myself but just because I prefer reading/listening to series in order I don't want to discourage anyone else from picking this up even if they haven't read the preceding books.

Because I'd read In the Family (book 9 or 10 depending on what list you are looking at) I already knew some of what happened in this story. What I didn't know is how things happened or why. This story had a lot of suspense to it for me and I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for things to happen.

While this is a relatively short audiobook it really packed a punch. I'm so delighted that I finally have experienced the stories in this series. My one disappointment is that they all aren't yet available in audio format.

I almost forgot to say anything about the narration… Leave the Light On is the first book I've listened to by K. Richardson and I liked it. One small criticism is that I thought her voice sounded almost too happy in some places; like the character was grinning and it just didn't fit for me at times.

I'm finding it a bit strange that this series has so many different narrators. In other favorite series this would have bothered me but it hasn't seemed to make a difference in The Friessens and I'm really enjoying it.
