    Would you try another book from Denise Swanson and/or Maia Guest?

    I like DS very much and I really wanted to like this one. I just couldn't get past MG's voices. Poppys voice was very hard to listen to. Very manly and why so quiet? The voice of Jake was just silly...is he out of breath? Or is that supposed to sound sexy? I will still read DS but not listen if MG is the narrator.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Little Shop of Homicide?

    I enjoyed the scene in the police station after the Grandmother was picked up. Dev is talking to the chief and Grandmother cuts in with a completely with it and snarky comment for the cheif.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Voice were not good.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No because they would propably only use the same five actors that are in any movie :) Plus I like my own interpretation of a story.

    Jaine's accepted her share of lame gigs to pay the bills, but rewriting Shakespeare's got to be an all-time low. The fiasco begins with a call from Jaine's high-school nemesis, uber rich uber witch Patti Devane. It seems Patti will soon be sashaying down the aisle with another former classmate from Hermosa High, and she'd like the exchange of vows to evoke Romeo and Juliet…except without the "downer" of an ending.

    "Not a fan of this narrator"

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I love reading this series but Ms. Pressley has a very annoying warble in her voice that she uses with the characters. The only change is a higher and higher pitch to her warble between female characters. I couldn't finish. Truly awful.
