Davidson is one of my favorite authors. She has a way of pulling you in and not letting go. Also, Rosenblat is a great narrator. The two make a great combination.
I enjoyed the overall story. I liked having Marla play a major role. I also enjoyed having the Colorado weather moved to the background. The narrator was wonderful as always. Ready for the next installment...
I've loved everyone of Goldie ' s adventures and this one had that extra little kick at the end that topped then all! However, I can't imagine any other narrator than Barbara Rosenblat; she is perfect!
although I like Diane's stories, I hated the voice over. it made it sound like everyone smoked a 6 pack of cigarettes every day. instead of seeing Goldie as an espresso drinking catering cutie, I suddenly saw her in rollers and hair pins carrying her six pack of cigarettes drinking cold coffee with whipping cream. sorry I would have enjoyed another voice.
I can't imagine anyone really enjoying it.
I have read this series for years and enjoyed it. The performance was so distracting that I cannot recommend this audio version but would refer friends instead to the text.
a different narrator. The pacing was poor. The emphasis overdone. The accent grating. It was difficult to listen to it.
The story is cute and at times, I think exceptionally portrayed. At other times it seems to go on and on with colorful descriptions that don't really factor into the story. No offense to Rosenblat, but it's a bit over-'acted.'
For those who have the time, maybe. For those who want crisp story telling, no.
Loved the story & have read all of Diane Mott Davidson's books in this series, however, this is the first audio book I've listened to though. The narrator has a gravely voice & mispronounced several words, in addition to not being able to keep the "voices" of the characters consistent. I wish I would've just read it the old fashioned way instead of listening to it!
