The combo of Goldy Bear and Barbara Rosenblat is unbeatable for non-stop entertainment and light intrigue. This is the type book that makes me smile and forget the stress of the workday. The food references and recipes at the end are a great touch. I highly recommend this series if you read for pure entertainment and enjoy women sleuths as much as I do!
Yes, I did not like the low monotone voice of the narrator. It was difficult to listen to. Marnie's character did not draw you in enough to empathize with her. The overall feel was that she was extremely weak and just pulled along by circumstances and you were never allowed to really get into her head. I like to get an understanding of the protagonist early so I get drawn into the story through her eyes.No buildup of the police and doctor characters either - or at least not enough to feel you knew them enough to get close. The plot developed too slowly for my taste as well.
The plot was fairly interesting but dragged in places. The story was actually too long without enough emotional depth.
It would depend on the author but I would rather not.
It was not boring but did not hold my attention well. I wanted it to get to the end and reveal the culprit so I could move on.
From reading other reviews I think I might have enjoyed this book more if I had read earlier ones that developed some of the characters a little better that carried over into this book. I believe I would have also enjoyed it more with a livelier and more emotional narrator.
Without a doubt I would change the female narrator.She absolutely ruined the book. It grated on my nerves so badly that I had to listen in short bursts.
I love Harlan Coben's standalone books - he is one of the greatest out there in my opinion, but I would not recommend this audio book to anyone. The female narration absolutely ruined the audiobook. I would have to recommend that one read the book on this occasion and that is rare for me. I'm a diehard audiobook lover - just have never experienced a read this bad.
Anyone at all instead of Angela Dawe and I really didn't care for Luke Daniels either. My favorite is Dick Hill and there are lots of wonderful female narrators out there.
Not with the female narration. Read the book.
Great story from Coben - please improve the narration on subsequent books.
I used to love these ABC books and Kinsey was a real pleasure to read. Author needs to get off her bandwagon and just get back to writing enjoyable books. This was a real bore as have been the last several. As soon as she started writing about causes, the stories became slow and boring. I'm not sure anything could have made this book worth the waste of time - it's only saving grace was Judy Kay's narration. She is wonderful!
Sycamore Row by John Grisham.
This storyline was too boring to get into the characters.
Please make Kinsey interesting again with the x,y,z books.
Yes. Highly entertaining and keeps you guessing about what happened to the first wife.
Good - some of the voices were not as good as others - the southern accent was not done well at all and the heroine was too sappy.
The husband, He sounded like a dream in the quiet, sultry way that drives women crazy.
Some parts of it were too sappy and some of the scenes were not very believable or well constructed, but overall the book was a very enjoyable read. Not anywhere near the quality of Rebecca, but entertaining from a more modern perspective.
