This is just a story about 2 spies and some of their life as spies. It is interesting from the point of how spies travel and move around, that is about it.
The worst part is the authors read the story. I thought that the authors would have some interest, but they sound like they are reading their shopping list. It is hard to keep track of what is going on through the continuous monotone voices droning on and on....
The basic story is good - how raising a puppy to be a service dog affects the handler. However, The story bogs down with the author's introspection. She also analyzes almost every interaction. It was too much for me and I would skip over those parts.
Tamera apparently had a goal in mind on how long she wanted the book to be. She drags it out, so you might be finding yourself yelling at the story, "just tell him!!", quite often. You know the ending, so the heroine's procrastination gets a bit weary.
Safety on a pistol in the 1870s? Rubbing alcohol a common household item? These distractions were annoying, especially since the storyline and characters are written as though a very young girl wrote the book. Not recommended.
This short story lets us know how Chet managed to "fail" his jump test, and how he came to be with Bernie. Another great Chet and Bernie story!
Only got a few minuted into it and had to turn it off. For those of you that do not appreciate hearing the F word and other similar words - this book is not for you.
The narrator does a great job.
I really wish that there was some kind of rating system for books!

Not sure what happened with the person that said the narration was poor. This book is read in her typical fashion - excellent!
Elizabeth Peters spends more time on the characters and their interactions. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
This is a great mystery - clean and funny with an entertaining heroine and hero. What makes this book come to life is the narrator. Barbara Rosenblat is simply amazing! Her intonations and different voices for each character make this book easy to follow and picture clearly in my head.
I have listened to Ms. Rosenblat narrate many books, and have come to the conclusion to listen to anything she narrates - because she will make it thoroughly entertaining!
I have to admit that I am spoiled by Tony Britton's excellent narration. Fiacre Douglas does not distinguish between the voices well, if at all. There are times when he sounds like he is reading the book for the 1000th time and is completely bored. Once you get past the narration and figure out how to keep track of who is speaking, it is a typical Dick Francis novel - which I love.
I LOVE the Pern books! So much that I did not read the reviews before purchasing this book. I wish I had....
I started to listen to this one, not realizing that it was the second (or third?) in a series. The description of the plot is confusing on Audible. (I figured out what was wrong when I read the description on Amazon.) SInce it started off with a synopsis of what had happened, I thought I would give it a listen. I gave up after 20 minutes.
Todd has not developed his mother's skill at story telling. It is Todd's little excursion into "Gee, what would happen if I went back in time, then forward, then maybe back and see myself?"
The established laws of time travel by dragons is not followed. I have never given up on a book so quickly. Don't waste your money!
