I really enjoy the author's use of words. It pleases my ear and makes me smile. The descriptions of the places and the way the characters are developed have great appeal. I went back and replayed several chapters when I first listened to the audiobook, and will undoubtedly listen to the whole thing again.
The plot developed nicely and kept me interested and entertained, which is why I finished it in two days. Actually I would have done it more quickly, but forced myself to slow down as I knew I would be disappointed when the book was finished.
Love Rubenstein's narration - they really make these books come alive. The individual character voices are always recognizable, and word flow and timing are excellent. Rubenstein's narration is one of the things I most enjoy about the Alex Delaware novels, and when I see that a new book is out, that's the first thing I check.
I've read all the Alex Delaware books and this was one of my favorites.
The narration. I enjoyed these rather simplistic books when they had decent narrators. This author should NOT read her own books.
No more foxhunting mysteries, if Rita Mae Brown reads them.
Everything. Timing was so bad, pauses where there shouldn't have been pauses.
Never got to character development
Totally a waste of money and time.
I'd like to try the other Diane Mott Davidson books, but will stick with the print editions.
The food connection was interesting, and I enjoyed the way it was woven into the plot.
I don't care for Barbara Rosenblat, but this is her worse performance by far. Doubt that I will listen to another one.
Only extreme reaction was to the narration. The book itself seemed quite good.
I've purchased many Audible books in the past, but was extremely disappointed in this one.
