    Ten excited guests arrive at the Westlake Estate, expecting a lavish retreat. They are the winners of a sweepstakes to "Live Like a Billionaire for a Week." But what was supposed to be a promising escape soon turns into a horrific nightmare. Within hours of arrival, the guests sit down for an extravagant dinner. When they pull their party poppers as instructed, a loud chorus of bangs resounds, followed by earsplitting screams as the guest seated at the head of the table bursts into flames and slumps to the floor.

    When China's and Ruby's friend Karen Prior is mugged in a mall parking lot and dies a few days later, China begins to suspect that her friend's death was not a random assault. Karen was a filmmaker supervising a student documentary about the fifteen-year-old murder of a woman named Christine Morris and the acquittal of the man accused of the crime. Is it possible that the same person who killed Christine Morris targeted Karen?

Another member of the tour is pushed to her death from a hotel balcony. A prominent Maggody citizen stands accused of the murder.

    Not sure.


    Was Misery Loves Maggody worth the listening time?

    It wasn't a bad story but it did not flow at all which made it difficult to follow as well as frustrating at times.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I downloaded this to listen to while cleaning. It's was easy to follow & turned out to be my favorite of the series so far. I liked getting to know some additional characters while not 'leaving town' to do it. This book gives us some insight into Tom which, up to now, had been lacking.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?


    Would you recommend Moving Violation to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, the narration is poor. Between the speed of the talking and lack of tonal change between characters I found it very difficult to follow. Tried to finish this book several times but I just can't get through it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Slower narration.
