This was a fun mystery. Those who enjoy Miss Marple or Amelia Peabody will enjoy this series.
This book started off with a great premise and then proceeded to include every clichéd plot line possible. I wouldn't recommend it.
These stories were very entertaining although a little eclectic. They gave some interesting insights into the Chinese culture. The narrator was very irritating, almost enough to make us stop listening. After persevering we got used to the narrator I would not get another book read by him.
I love this series and these characters but this novel was not very satisfying. It might be because it's abridged, but the story seemed to jump occasionally and I felt as if some bridges were missing. Barbara Rosenblat was fabulous as always.
Since the previous books in this series are not available on Audible (or at least not available to Australian members) I started with this book. It is all politics and characters that are not introduced because you are supposed to know their history from the prior books. As a stand alone it is awful.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story was entertaining, the characters likeable (which is important to me) and the sci-fi was believable. I'm looking forward to working my way through the rest of this series.
Very enjoyable book. The author creates a detailed sci-fi scenario that is totaly believable. I was very quickly emotionally invested in the characters. I'm so glad to have discovered this author as there is a wealth of other books to enjoy.
I loved this book. I enjoyed the detailed political cultures created by the author, the plot twists and the very gentle love story. I'm eager to read the next installment in the saga.
I enjoyed having the book read like a play with multiple voices. Addictive listening.
I am an avid knitter so was very excited to find a mystery novel with knitting woven in (excuse the mixed metaphor). However, I found the story so drawn out and boring that I can't make myself listen to the end. I can't even be bothered to skip to the last chapter to find out 'who done it'. Perhaps if you are a fan of the series and have an existing relationship with the characters you would enjoy this, but I didn't like it at all.
I love Barbara Rosenblat, but the southern american accent she used for this book was really tiring to listen to. I would not try another book from Sophie Littlefield, I thought the story was slow and cumbersome and not very inventive. Also, I didn't like any of the characters, and that's important to me.
