I have read or listened to the 3 books by this author and think they are delightful. I loved them so much I bought them in paperback for a friend who doesn't have audible book access and I know she will love them, too. Spellbinding, etherial, enchanting.
The narrator made this less than stellar book worse that it had to be. If you like someone who sounds like he is always angry, just fed up with everyone he comes in contact with and has no talent for different voices....then you will like this one. OMG....he made what was supposed to be a sexy little imp speak with a lisp. I'll let you judge for yourself but I was very disappointed and it possibly could have been a good book, but it wasn't a good audible.
There was just one disaster after another. No respite. DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA and NO story!
Get someone with a range of voices and characters.
I was very disappointed in a book that got 4.5 stars! I didn't enjoy the reader and when the story line got into so much "If she were christian then .......". This was just not my book and I feel cheated by the Publishers Review. Do NOT shove your religious beliefs down my throat. I would like my book credit back.
Intrigue, Suspense, Unexpected
The unusual twists and turns of the story, I never could second guess the author.
The descriptions of the Florida terrain and the mystique of the 1000 islands kept my interest and curiosity going strong. The history of the area and the Indians was fascinating. I was completely surprised at the end to hear the author describe the actual case from which he took so much for his story. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a story with a different twist.
I'm really surprised and delighted at the humor and imagination that Molly Harper has put into this book. It is the first I have read from her but it won't be the last. It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud as I'm driving in traffic at the end of a long day, but she has caught me off guard several times and the folks next to me are probably locking their doors when the see me laughing in dead stopped traffic.
I agree with another review. The narrator detracts drastically. While I would like to be focusing on the story all I can hear are sounds of breathing, swallowing and lip smacking. I would love to hear another one in this series but with someone else narrating.
This was my first Christina Dodd and it will be my last. Just not to my liking. There really wasn't anything to creat a "I' can't stop listening" story and that's being generous. If you are looking for Rachel Morgan or Sookie Stackhouse, this is not it.
