From the author of Buried Deep and The House on the Water comes a shocking thriller about a young podcaster who’s investigating a cold case in her hometown and determined to uncover the truth at any cost.
Paige Barrett was living her dream as a journalist in New York City, racking up bylines as a staff writer at The Razor, a cutting-edge online magazine. But when she’s suddenly fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend, she finds herself back home in the quaint seaside town of Shoreham, Florida, waiting tables and living in her sister’s guesthouse.
Restless and itching for something meaningful to occupy her time, she decides to launch a true-crime podcast about the death of Jessica Cady, a beloved teacher who died mysteriously 20 years earlier. The case went cold with no leads and no suspects, but the more Paige digs into the woman’s death, the closer she comes to a killer. In a small town like Shoreham, it’s impossible to keep a secret forever.
Tell Her Story is performed by Dakota Fanning and features the voices of LJ Ganser, Vikas Adam, Emily Bauer, Ann Osmond, Fred Berman, Jonathan Davis, and Laura Darrell.

We have a young and disgraced former journalist who is convinced by her sister to start a podcast featuring the cold case of a 20-year-old murder of a much-loved teacher in her hometown. And of course, she gets in over her head the further involved she gets.
I really enjoyed this short story and liked Paige. I was fully involved in her journey to hopefully solving this long cold case. Tell Her Story is currently only available in audio format and I feel that is the way it should be ‘read’ or listened to. We go on Paige’s journey of ‘whodunit’ with her and then part of the audiobook is the podcast. Dakota Fanning is our main narrator and she did a very good job portraying Paige.
This is a short story, so it was fast paced and I never lost interest in it. The farther Paige went in her research the more she discovers and she then finds herself involved in a way she never expected. The podcast angle with the unexpected popularity adds to the danger and also shows how different our world is now than just 20 years ago when this murder happened.
I would be interested in looking at more of Hunt’s novels. This was a good introduction to her for me.
This one is currently only available in audio format.
I also appreciate the realistic portrayal of what it takes to create and market a podcast.
Without giving what happens away, I would have given this 4 or 5 stars if more were pointed out and discussed about the abuse. (If the genders were reversed, I suspect it would have been.) I found that so disheartening, and even potentially harmful.
Performance 4 out of 5 stars
Story 4 out of 5 stars
Not a podcast listener, but that may change.
I've never listened to a podcast, but after listening to this audiobook I may have to rethink that!
Although I kind of figured out/had a feeling as to who the murderer ended up being, I thought this story was entertaining. I was surprised at the end though, with how one of the characters acted- it was disappointing.
I wonder if there are plans to make this into a series, with Paige and Ben investigating more murders/mysteries.
I enjoyed the narration, although Dakota sounded a little too young for the age of the main character. I liked that there were different narrators used for the interviews.
One day, in hopes of helping her sister return to journalism, she suggests that she begin a true crime podcast based on the murder of Jessica Cady, a beloved hometown teacher who was run down and no one has ever been charged. Paige begins to question the people who lived in the area at the time and who knew Jessica. Working alongside Cady's son, Ben, Jessica learns more about Jessica - including the parts no one else knew about.
This story was a decent novella. The story was sufficiently written but the ending felt rather rushed and could have been handled in a better manner. The narrators were one of the best parts of this story as they allowed each character to have their own personality and voice. The author left the story open to a second installment where they cover the murder of another community member.
