    Dylan Scott vowed never to return to the dreary town of Dawson's Clough. But one visit from a beautiful ex-lover and he's back in Lancashire, investigating a possible murder. The police think Prue Murphy died during a burglary gone wrong, but her sister isn't so sure - and neither is Dylan. After all, the killer overlooked the only valuable thing in Prue's flat. So who could have wanted the quirky young woman dead, and why? Dylan's search for answers takes him to France, where he discovers Prue's family didn't know her as well as they thought they did.

    What did you like best about Dying Art? What did you like least?

    The story was good, however I am sure there are sufficient genuine English narrators around that could have done this book. This American's attempt at an English accent was woeful and the pronunciation of several places and colloquialisms not even close.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Appalling English accent

    Down-on-her-luck Lori learns she's about to inherit a sizable estate - if she can discover the secret hidden in a treasure trove of letters in Dimity's English country cottage. What begins as a fairy tale becomes a mystery - and a ghost story - in an improbably cozy setting, as Aunt Dimity's indominable spirit leads Lori on an otherworldly quest to discover how, in this life, true love can conquer all.

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

    I enjoyed the story and it did keep my attention in spite of the narration


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bill, you just never know what to expect from him.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

    Yes


    Was Aunt Dimity's Death worth the listening time?

    For me yes, but then i listen while doing other things.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the narrator never travels to Scotland as she would be arrested for murder of the Scottish accent, and the English accent wasn't much better. If you can't do and accent properly please don't attempt it. Overall the narration was some of the worst I have ever heard and only the story kept me listening.
