I don't mind the repetitive magic stories so much, but I wish it wasn't quite SO formulaic. Right off - there's 3 women, 3 men.... gee I wonder how this will end!
The narrator is another miss. (Just like Whiskey Beach). Only this time I'm having a hard time hearing the different characters. The female and male Irish accents (which sound more like Newfie accents to a Canadian ear) all sound alike.
She's overly dramatic, and gets very excited and way over the top way too fast. Very distracting from the plot. I bet she'd be great on stage... maybe, but not so hot in audio form. Re-do!
No, I don't think I'll finish it. Maybe if you re-record it.
I enjoyed the setting, and the mystery itself was fun, but it's glaringly obvious it's set in the 1990s. I'm amazed at how much female/male characterization in Robert's books has changed over the years. The men in this book almost always force themselves on the women - and the women just melt in their arms and give into their passions... which had me rolling my eyes at points. Puh-lease.
I'd read it was a "surprise" twist ending... can't say I was blown away by it. It was a good plot generally.
She did a good job, but nothing stellar.
Yes - interesting just to see how Roberts' writing has changed, and gotten better over the years.
I wish they'd post the publishing date of the book on the main page. Obviously nothing wrong with reading books written 10-20 years ago - but it helps prepare me for the tone of the book.
