I love the Goldilocks Catering series. Although I'm used to Barbara Rosenblat's reading and totally enjoy the way she narrates, I love the way this book changes the sound so you know when someone's on the phone, on a microphone etc. This adds to the enjoyment of the story.
I've been thoroughly enjoying the Phryne Fisher stories. The history of 1928 Australia is very interesting. Having Jewish grandparents, I particularly enjoyed this this book. And Stephanie Daniel did GREAT Jewish accents, nu?
I agree with a previous reviewer; the vampire stuff was rather silly. The story, however, was as good as expected - vampires not withstanding.
I'd never heard of these books before, but figured I'd give them a try. Totally enjoyable! Fun story line, and the reader is excellent. I love the accents. This is a great series if you're looking for light listening with a bit of excitement. And I find the description of 1932 England fascinating.
Like another reviewer I thought there was WAY too much Shaker history in the story. I mean, the history was interesting, but if I wanted to read a detailed history of the Shakers, I'd get a history book. It seems to me that without the history the book would have been too short, so the author may have added it to fill pages. The basic back story was interesting, but WAY too detailed!
I've been looking for a new cozy mystery series and stumbled on Death on Demand. I am up to book #8 and I'm thoroughly enjoying this series. The history of the South Carolina coupled with the mysteries make it very interesting.
I chose this production of the book because of the reviews of other readers. I think Scott Brick did a very good job. I've listened to samples of some of the other readers some of them are abysmal.
My husband and I have listened to all the books in this series. The next book is out on paper. When's it coming out on Audible? Can't wait to find out what happens next!
I downloaded this book because I wanted a nice cozy mystery. I should have followed the reviews and not gotten the book. The premise could have been good, but I found it very slow and boring. The narrator's "British" accent started out sounding Scottish and then wavered back and forth. Between the distracting narration and the slow story, I probably won't even finish the book. It's not even keeping my interest enough for me to care whodunit.
I got this book for my husband to listen to in the car on long trips and started out wondering how long I'd be able to stand listening to it. Now I'm totally engrossed in the series, probably more than he is. Great story, with just enough human interest to keep it real without going overboard on either the relationship stuff or the techical jargon. Great book!
