I enjoyed the basic story here. It was fun. Pretty good low-key mystery.
What I loved, though, was Veronica Newton's narration. She brings Imogene to life, capturing her wonderful sort of naive pluck, and does a terrific job with the rest of the cast of characters, handling the voices and timbers with skill and confidence. I never lost rack of who was speaking.
A delightful read.
While the novel itself has its good and not-so-good elements,William Salyers narration is a real treat. He has a true gift for voices. Even in crowd scenes he delivers distinctly different timbres and accents without becoming "actor-y" at any time, and without overpowering the writer's words. The whole is handled with grace and aplomb. All in all, a fine actor struttin' his considerable stuff.
