I have really enjoyed the Womens Murder Club series and this book didn't disappoint. Good story line, good characters, and a good mystery to solve.
I couldn't get into this book because the narrator has a lisp that was overwhelmingly distracting to me to the point I couldn't follow the storyline. I realize it's not her fault she has a lisp, but very poor choice for narrating s book.
I'm luke warm on this series, but I want to like it... I like the main character, but sometimes I wonder if Mr. Patterson has ever met a group of professional women. One scene in this book, they're described as squealing and jumping around because they hadn't seen each other in like a week....10 years of not seeing my best friend, there would be no squealing or jumping. Several little scenes like that throughout the series make me question what he was thinking, and makes the women look silly, unprofessional, emotional and/or immature.
There's a lot of trial drama in this one with bookends for the crime story. I'm not really in to court drama, but if you are, it's a nice twist to the series I guess. I found it unnecessary, and really more uncomfortable than intriguing.
The random background music in the recording is SUPER distracting. Especially during the romantic scenes...makes me feel like I'm listening to a terrible b-movie, or worse, 80s porn.
The narrator is definitely better than the female narrator for books one and two.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Not sure why it's the "Club" when it doesn't play much of a part. Good listen, if you've read the previous you know what to expect.
Kind of like a TV movie. Kept me going but never measures up to great thrillers like Gone Girl or The Goldfinch.
Another great story with good twists and turns. The reader does an excellent job!
The reason I gave the story a 4 and not a 5 is that I didn't care for the way everything unfolds so quickly at the end. Author does this often. It was a great surprise ending but that was the only place where it was not plausible in how he handled it.
I liked the storyline but really get really exasperated with her sometimes. I would think she would be more aware of things she should always have on her (gun & phone).
I download this book and another prior to taking an 18 hour drive. I listened to the first book and put this book in after its conclusion, however I was only able to list to the first 2 hours before I simply put the first book in again and just re listened to it. This book was confusing and in my opinion just not interesting. Maybe the story line would of gotten better if I had of given it more time however, after driving for many hours during the middle of the night, the book must grab my attention and keep it and this book did not. I attempted to listen to it at a later time and the love was still not there.
