Although I'm not a fan of novellas, I look forward to Anne Perry's short Christmas mysteries each year. So I had high expectations for this one. Unfortunately this one is, well, disappointing. It pains me to say it but this one falls short on pretty much every measure.
The narration was fine. This is my first and last Leslie Meier book
I expect Christmas cozies to have a plot surrounded by the spirit of the season. Not harping on a bad economy. Listening to this book was a chore
It's pretty bad when you realize you just don't care who dunnit.
MC Beaton's cozy mysteries are fun. This one wasn't horrible but I certainly won't bother to listen to it again.
not the next one in this series!
Maybe it’s a problem with expectations since I was so excited to listen to this book. What’s not to love, PD James and Austen? Don’t get your hopes up and don’t bother with this one. Sorry!
I’ve read other “Austen-add-ons” and enjoyed them very much. James somehow makes characters I came to love in the original novel unlikeable.
The narrator was fine.
I couldn't even listen to all of it and I always finish books.
I loved this book when I read it so I was so excited to see a book from Anna Dean on Audible I didn't bother to read the descr.... and didn't realize the same book was published under the title, Bellfield Hall. So don't be disappointed like I was... if you've already read Bellfield Hall.
Otherwise, there's nothing disappointing about this book! Don't miss it!
