The Mystery of the Fires by Edith Lavell (1892 - 1957).



Quote:
In the second book of the Mary Louise Gay mysteries, Mary Lou and her best friend Jane are thrilled to be spending a whole month of their summer together at Shady Nook. But when suspicious fires threaten their relaxing holiday, they jump into their sleuthing ways to find the culprit. With so many interesting residents in this small town, they have their work cut out for them! ( Cari Shorrock)



  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/43583
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thanks Ann and Dave!

Ann, are you able to move us over to "Solo"?

I may be a bit slower on this one, but aim to get at least one chapter in per week.

OK, Dave is in as DPL (thanks Dave!), and since we are all on board, we will move on to Going Solo!

I have no problem with one chapter per week, for some readers that is a fast pace. Whatever is comfortable for you is fine with me, I'm just here to set up and catalog, you do all the heavy lifting.

Just a quick update that Chapter 2 has been read, and first edits done. I just need to fix a few errors and hope to have it up and ready to go by the end of the week. The start back to school has been a bit of a hiccup in my reading schedule :P
