The reader Barbara Rosenblat is very iritating to listen to as her exagerated style of reading makes you want to shut off the recording and listen to something else. It is unfortunate as many of the authors books she reads are definitely off my list of listens as I can't stand to listen to her reading of them.
I have listened to over 100 audible books and this is the first that I have not only stopped listening to but asked for my money back! I am a big fan of Diane Mott Davidson's books! Who ever picked the narrator never read one. The narrator's voice is raspy and she keeps gasping for breath...pass this one by!!!
just like a delectable desert, you get it you love it and soon you want more!!! The wait till the next is terrible. Goldy is one of my favorite characters. Hurry up Diane !!!
Yes, good story, good recipes!
Not on my seat, but entertaining
Distracting noises swallowing, etc
I did finish quickly!
Scared to orde next one unless the audio of narrator is improved. It made me not want to finish book, but liked the story. Narrator is good, but maybe microphone too close.
This was my first experience with this author and I totally enjoyed it. I didn't expect what the end of the book (not the end of the story) was! What fun! I'm anxious to read some more of this.
Diane Mott Davidson's entire series about Goldie and her turbulent life is shot through with human emotion and humor. Double Shot has these wonderful qualites and events that make the developing plot lines and characters turn a corner without ending the series but briinging it to new possibilities. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat provides another spectacular audio presentation. The entire series just gets better and better.
This story of a Colorado caterer is light for most mystery fans, but fun for a break from the Harry Boschs and Jack Reachers and Cotton Malones. The bad guy is easily figured out well before the end and the narrator is way to breathy and throaty and even nasal for my taste. The saving grace is that the recipes served by the caterer are all included at the end of the story and they are worth the listen.
I love this series, but this narrator seems to be either swallowing or licking her lips or something between every sentence (and sometimes in the middle of sentences too). It was extremely irritating, to the point that I nearly gave up. I didn't notice this with the other books that she narrated. If I were you, I would try the abridged version - different narrator.
