This is a strong entry into the Mercy Thompson series, but the narration threw me....I usually love Lorelei King, and maybe I'm just too used to hearing her as Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, but her voice seems too light and upbeat for this series, and especially some of the subject matter in this story.
This was just ok for me, but if you are a big fan celebrity gossip and entertainment drama, you'll probably get a kick out of this book. I thought the reader did a very good job.
The third book in the Harper Connelly series, I think this one has the strongest mystery. It kept me guessing. It also has more romance than the previous books, which I enjoyed. Love the narrator.
I've read the previous Plum books, but this is the first one I've gotten on audio, and it was really enjoyable. The narrator did a really good job. My main complaint of this series has been a lack of character growth, but it seemed a bit better this time. That quibble aside, if you've read the previous books, you know what to expect -enjoyable and fun with laugh out loud spots. Ranger fans will be pleased (go Ranger) and Morelli also plays a large part. Looking forward to fourteen.
I'm a big Preston/Child fan, but this one was not a keeper. I kept thinking it could have been so much better if they had written this as two separate books - a Pendergast/ mystic /creature book and a separate "boat" book. Either would have been fantastic - combined they switched back and forth and really drew me out of the action until, exciting as the story was, I was just ready for it to end. The reader, however, gets an A+++.
