I loved that we got to know more about Peabody in this book. I have always wanted more of her character in the other books, and finally here she gets her own storyline.
As with all of the books in this series I was compelled to finish this book in one listen. I am always driven to find out whether or not I have figured out who is behind the murders. And if I'm right--I love being right. And if I'm wrong--I love being pleasantly surprised. It's a win-win situation.
Susan Ericksen does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life and making each one distinct. She gives the characters voices that you wouldn't think up on your own if you just read the book, but they each fit the characters so well.
In this book in particular, I loved how she portrayed Ratso. I couldn't stop laughing.
This book, as with the others in this series, is well worth the credit!
It's hard to choose. Ellis gets herself into so many predicaments that cause many a memorable moment.
The narrator did a fine job. She didn't differentiate the voices as well as other narrators that I've heard, but I never felt as though she detracted from the story.
Overall I enjoyed this book. Ellis is a very likeable character who, despite her good intentions, always gets herself into trouble. I found that this quality was what kept me engaged with the story because I wanted to see what could possibly go wrong next. The only reason that I give this story 4 stars instead of 5 is because as a Christian historical book, God rarely enters the picture. The morality of this book is based on what people consider is good. The characters never pray or read their Bible when they are seeking help for the situations that arise. I'm disappointed in that aspect, but if you are looking for a funny, good, clean historical romance, this is your book.
