    REVIEWS FROM AUTHORS:

    I was blown away by the detail and the life Lesley brought to the characters in the audiobook version of The Mistletoe Haunting. It was a pleasure to work with her from start to finish and her voice is exceptional for detailed, multi-character storytelling. Even I was tranfixed listening to her - and I wrote the story! If she can do that to the author it speaks volumes for the skill Lesley brings to charcaterisation and audiobook recording. Highly recommended. David SC

    REVIEWS FROM AMAZON/AUDIBLE:

    Narrator Lesley Dessalles once again charmed me with her wonderful voice acting in this audiobook. This is the 2nd book I have listened to that she has narrated and I enjoy her ability to do a range of voices; both male and female genders as well. I was able to keep up with the character voice transitions with no problem.

    I look forward to hearing her narrate more in the future.

    I am a fan of Kat Green. I love her twisted creepy stories. I also love listening to Lesley Dessalles narrate. I love how her accent just brings more to a story. This story grabbed me right away and did not let me go until the end...

    Lesley Dessalles did a good job narrating this book. She reads with a British accent, so definitely listen to the sample if you don't enjoy British narrators, to be sure that you will enjoy the narration. Ms. Dessalles did a great job with the children's voices. When they sang and whispered, it gave me chills. She did a very good job bringing the characters and the book as a whole, to life, and I'd definitely listen to more books narrated by her int he future.

    Narrator Lesley Desalles narration was very enjoyable. I was not sure if her British accent was her true natural accent, or not. I did a little research, simply out of curiosity and found that she is from the United Kingdom. For me, it is a change of pace to listen to someone with a British accent. Lesley has a very pleasant voice and I truly enjoyed her voice acting in this audiobook. She performed all the voice characterizations very well. I always think that performing another gender's voice range would be a challenge. The addition of performing the voices of children convincingly is also something she did very well, and I look forward to listening to her in the future.

    Short description of my voice

    A former frustrated drama student. I have spent the past year working on audiobooks and can do a variety of voices. I have portrayed young girls in ghost form, Lady Marlborough the archetypal grande dame of any aristocratic family. Young London based career girls, maids, Russian Counts, Teenage boys, pirates, a bird and a squirrel to name but a few. My voice has clarity and is not defined by my age!

    Seb Earl - author of Happy Ever... After

    "Lesley is the perfect narrator for my novel. She is very thorough and will ensure the book is read in the best way. She brings more than a voice to the project as she understands the characters and the story in such depth that she can suggest welcome adaptations to the narration and bring the whole novel to life. A great collaborator for any author" -Seb Earl
