I am not a native Texan but have lived in Fort Worth for over 20 years. No one in Fort Worth has the accent that this reader used. I was really looking forward to this novel because I have read the author's work in the Fort Worth Star Telegram for a long time. I was extremely disappointed in the reader and the story itself fell flat. I never came to care about the characters and nothing rang true for me. Will I read any by this author again? Probably but I will avoid this reader for my audio books.
No, I love a good mystery but this wasn't one.
Someone who respects Texas and doesn't give us that west Texas twange...doesn't ring true for a character raised in north Texas.
Who chooses the reader? I cannot believe that the author was supportive of this choice.
