    • I recently had the pleasure of attending a read/sign for 'Speaking in Tungs' in Austin TX. I was already a fan of the book, but having the opportunity to hear the author, Karla Jay, read her favorite excerpts was such a special treat! She mentioned that booksellers were having a difficult time categorizing this storyAutobio ? These quirky characters will pop to recognizable life for anyone who has spent time in rural America. Yes, the author draws on her experience as a speech pathologist for th [...]

    • If I could give it a 3.5 I would! Fun summer read that I'll read the sequel to and to top it off- the main character is a SLP :)

    • This book made me laugh! I love a great book with some humor too. This book had many great qualities for me, some suspense, mystery, and a little romance. This author is new to me and I would read more books from her. I enjoyed this book very much!

    • I really loved this book and could totally relate. I've always lived a more urban life. Not always a big city, but a city. My family moved to the boonies when I was a teenager. Talk about culture shock! I laughed through most of the book because I was there myself.Besides the laughs, was a really well written story. Marleigh, a brand new speach therapist, moves to the tiny commumity of Tungs. She lost her parents in tragic accident and then discovers she was adopted. She takes a job in the wilds [...]

    • What a delightful read! Given the title, I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. But the story seemed to have potential so I gave it a whirl - and I'm so glad I did! The story is entertaining and witty, and the dash of mystery and romance makes it that much better. Marleigh is a character I enjoyed, and I look forward to the next installment of her story. But she isn't the only engaging character in the book -- there are several, and it was fun to get to know them and the town of Tungsten. [...]

    • Having recently moved to rural Pennsylvania, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Marleigh's culture shock in the Pennsylvania Wilds. The characters are quirky and fun. There were lovely descriptions of this part of the country. The underlying mystery developed into a suspenseful, page turning conclusion. Very enjoyable.

    • A fun read with a host of interesting characters. I also loved that it had a little humor and mystery too. Looking forward to the next novel by Karla M. Jay. Won this in a Giveaway. Thanks so much.

    • I won this as a Kindle edition in a Giveaway. Thanks !Although it took a while for this story to draw me in, I did enjoy it! The narration is witty, the characters are charming, and the plot is well conceived and entertaining. While the heroine, Marleigh, is funny and endearing, I found her a bit emotionally dimensionless. In particular, I felt her grief over the loss of her parents and her motivation to move to Pennsylvania to find her birth parents were underwhelmingly conveyed. This sets the [...]

    • I've been putting off getting this because I so wanted it to be good and was worried it would let the wonderfulness of all Speech Therapist's down - but I needn't have! This is great fun, and shows our job without getting preachy, or too didactic, or needing to show us as heroes who always have the right answer. I liked that she tried different solutions, and that some patients responded and some didn't, and that despite speech therapy being a running theme and helping with the plot, there was l [...]

    • Developing writers are often advised to "write about what you know," and Karla Jay has parlayed her career experience as a speech therapist into a fun tale set in rural Pennsylvania. The main character, Marleigh, is a dedicated wise-cracking young speech and language home-visit therapist, encountering a cast of quirky characters as she also investigates the circumstances of her adoption as a toddler. The beginning of the story was a bit clunky and had one jarring grammatical error, but the novel [...]

    • I really enjoyed this clean Suspenseful Romance. I received this book for free and voluntarily chose to review it. This book pulled me in from the first. There was some really interesting characters in this group. There kept grabbing me and pulling me along. You could understand her being a city girl in these circumstances. This was a new author for me and I was pleasantly surprised. I've given it a 5* rating.

    • Marleigh Benning is a speech therapist who drives cross-country to establish a new life in a rural town called Tungston, where she can help people who have language/speech disorders, and locate her birth parents who gave her up when she was two-years-old for reasons unknown.While making small strides with her patients, she meets the local fire chief, and sparks ignite.But if she was looking for a relaxing getaway, she won’t find it in Tungston, where around every corner is a rattlesnake nest, [...]

    • Free book for honest review. juliesbookreview The title is not mis-spelled. It’s an example of the author’s playfulness and understanding when it comes to words. Tungs is the shortened form of Tungston, the setting for the story. The novel is like a film-within-a-film. It is written from the narrative POV of a speech therapist. Words are the cornerstone of the story and words are the foundation of all novels. In that way “Speaking in Tungs” can be thought of as a film-within-a-film. It h [...]

    • An excellent read by an author who is soon destined to see her work as NEW YORK BEST SELLERS ! Written with such rare talent and skill ! The realistic characters quipping their various thoughts or sayings makes the book quite funny and very realistic. The action, mystery, revelations and the ending are so realistic and some of the occurrences seem so 'out there' that they could truly only happen in real life ! City gal comes to the rural country on a mission to find her family. Instead she finds [...]

    • Wow! I did not think I would enjoy this book as much as I did. It started out slow but ended with a bang. The main character Marleigh is witty and enjoyable, a speech therapist who has left busy San Francisco and moved to rural Pennsylvania after discovering she was adopted in hopes of learning more about her birth parents. She takes a job as a traveling speech therapist, which results in stepping way outside her comfort zone. Since this book falls into the mystery genre, it seemed like everythi [...]

    • Great characters, great atmosphere, great ending!I received this book as a prize in a drawing. It's not the genre I usually gravitate toward, but I'm so glad I read it because I really enjoyed the story. I felt like I was right there in Tungs with the characters--the author nailed not just the visual imagery of the region but the sense of place and atmosphere, too. I felt like the characters were my friends and acquaintances, and they've stayed with me after I finished the book. I liked learning [...]

    • One of the best books I've read! This book caught me from the start and kept me interested to the very last page. One of my favorite things about it is that it's entertaining for anyone who reads it, whether you're male or female! She adds just the right combination to make this interesting for everyone. There's romance, suspense, action, humor, and amazing characters! And each aspect is extremely well done. There are time when I found myself gripping the chair eager in anticipation for what hap [...]

    • I read this book last year and it was super fantastic!! It is a great read that keeps your interest from beginning to end. It's full of mystery, drama, suspense, romance & such cleverly written wit. This author, "Karla M. Jay", is brilliant in her delivery about a "Speech Pathologist" in rural Pennsylvania encountering so many interesting & unique situations. I, like many people had no idea what all a "Speech Pathologist" does. Their work is truly amazing!! They have so many skills & [...]

    • Speaking in Tungs was an easy, humorous and delightful read. I first noticed the book because of a facebook group of SLPs, and because I'm an SLP, I knew I wanted to support the author and read the book. I loved all the stories with the bright rich characters. I was curious about each one and read on for more information about each. I was enticed by each story.At the end, I appreciated the story but was longer for more. After a discussion with the author, I learned that a sequel will be released [...]

    • Karla was a guest speaker/author at our book club in August, presenting her novel, "Speaking in Tungs." Karla was pleasant and personable. I decided to purchase her book for my trip to Europe in September. Well, Europe got busy and the only time I had to read was traveling to Europe and back home. Once home, I had the luxury to read in the evening before going to bed. I enjoyed "Speaking in Tungs," and without ruining the story for anyone who wants to read it, I felt connected to the main charac [...]

    • **I received this book as a Giveaway in exchange for an honest review**This was an amazing novel! The kind of novel that you hope every book you pick up will be, but they never are. This novel delivered everything you would want in a good book. From the extremely entertaining story-line, to the uniquely wonderful cast of characters and even Jay's delightfully witty writing style, I loved everything about this novel. I seriously have nothing bad to say about this book.If you are looking for a qu [...]

    • I'm not sure why there are two 'Speaking in Tungs' in , but I've read it twice, so I'll review it twice! This is a great and easy read. There are as many twists and turns in this novel as there are in the windy roads of its setting, rural Pennsylvania. Karla Jay takes us through Marleigh's adventures in work (as a speech therapist), in play (crossword puzzles, rattlesnake hunting, and local festivals), and in the search for her real parents.I can't wait to read the sequel!Oh, and if you have a c [...]

    • I recently hadn't read a true page-turner until I picked up Speaking In Tungs! Upon starting this book I immediately felt fascinated in the many differing, yet intriguing characters. I love the character perspective, and seeing the many veiled talents of a speech pathologist! The tone of the novel is humorous, and warm allowing the reader to feel a nostalgic connection with the many eccentric characters. This novel has it all romance, suspense, humor, and mystery! The twists and turns of the plo [...]

    • There were a number of things I liked very much about the book; the humor, the back story and the speech therapy angle. I also thought that the characters were well drawn. The parts that didn't work so well for me was the love interest (was I reading a tempestuous romance novel?) and the Brady character. I still don't know why he did what he did. I also don't like snakes, so while I see why they appear in the novel--I wish the author had chosen badgers.Anyway, a good first effort! IMHO the autho [...]

    • I loved this book! Having grown up in Pennsylvania, I have often pondered life in some of the more remote villages throughout the state where life can sometimes be challenging due to lack of resources. Karla's cast of whimsical characters entertained me thoroughly. The book had it's comical moments along with mystery and romance. This is one book I did NOT want to see come to an end, and I will be the first in line when the sequel comes out. Thanks, Karla, for this well written and entertaining [...]

    • 2016 reading challenge- a book with a protagonist who has your occupation. I did not think I would find a book about a speech language pathologist, and even better it was a good book. I could relate to some of the scenarios Marleigh faced with her clients, having done home health myself. Plus the storyline with Lawyer was fun reading about too. Everything wrapped up pretty quick at the end and I wasn't ready! Looks like I will be reading the sequel!

    • I really enjoyed this novel. The characters were well-developed and the tiny-town atmosphere was spot on. The only slight criticism I could give is that I thought it ended quickly. I would have loved to have read about Milt and Marleigh's reunion. I would absolutely read another Karla Jay novel. I look forward to meeting more charming characters or even reading more about these characters.
