I am very disappointed that there is cursing in this book.
It is doubtful that i will listen or read anything by Kirkwood again.
I think I will stick with Miss Read, and D. E. Stevenson.
I read reviews of these "cozy mysteries" and I think I will enjoy a good story. I don't understand why authors use foul language and readers like to read/hear it!! It really ruins the story for me and I now will read none in the series.
Great story - love the narrator. I will be reading the rest of the series.
I guess that I didn't read the narrative well enough. I was expecting a "cozy" murder series without foul language or descriptive sexual scenes. I was disappointed and did not finish the book. The narrator was very good, however, I will not read more G. Ison books.
I would have liked the story if the author could have written it without the use of vile language. I like the narrator.
Had I known this book would contain such vile language, I would not have purchased it.
I could only listen to a small bit of this book. There was just too much swearing. Bad language really puts me off.
I was looking forward to lovely Irish characters; lilting brogues, laughter and warmth in a series that i could settle into and anjoy over and over but bad language renders a book unreadable for me.
I was so looking forward to a lovely Irish series that could settle down and savour like Herriot or D. E. Stevenson or Miss Read. I wish this series were more like them.
This ranks #1 among my favorites!
No other book really compares to this one. It is finely performed with calming and lovely selections of music. It is the KJB, which is most beautiful.
Mr. Jennings does a superb job, I love his rendering.
No. This is a book I like to listen to in bed at night as I drift off to sleep.
I highly recommend this book with a wonderful narrator. It could not be better!
Ms. Neville's voice was perfect for each character, especially Charlotte. Slight scottish brogue.
The character of Tessa was beautiful.
Ms. Neville has a gentle voice, annunciates well and has a nice lilt to it. She performs all characters well.
The character of Tessa was so lovely, she is intuitive and bright with fresh and gentle honesty. I was moved at the tenderness of Tessa's father also.
A very lovely story of charcters with character. Stevenson paints a lovely picture of an isle in Scotland that is wonderful and bright.
Mrs. Pringle of Fairacre ranks among my favorites. Lovely village life, with great characters.
I did like Mrs. Pringle in this story. Her gruff personality is funny but in this book, we could see a bit more of her life.
I like all Ms. Watford's character and it amazes me that she is able to do so many voices, even male voices so well.
I would take Miss Read to dinner, she has such an insight to each of the villagers.
