Classic John Sandford! I have spent the past few days at the hospital, and listening to this book was a welcome distraction. There are plenty of plot twists, meaty villains and the usual cast of characters (Del, Letty, Virgil, etc). I enjoyed Letty's prominent role in this story. Sandford's descriptions of the upper midwest, and it's residents are spot on. Now if we could only get Richard Ferrone to pronounce Mackinac properly (Mackinaw).......
This just drags on and on and on. For the first time, I cannot finish an audible book. Theo, is not very likable, which is okay, that he is whiny, is not. The plot showed promise, but getting to the action, took forever. Every time I started to listen to the book, I fell asleep. Theo made my head hurt. Not worth the time, effort or credit.
I liked this book, because I did not expect another Stephanie Plum. No laugh out loud, zany characters, but quirky enough to hold my interest. This book leaves the cozy behind and is definitely a suspense novel. I thoroughly enjoyed the edgier story line.
Scott Brick delivered a strong performance, as the narrator, more in line with a suspense novel.
I want to see this group of characters become a new series. Bottom line, if you are looking for a "Plum light", this is not the story for you.
John Sandford writes/develops great villains. I really like the "regulars" and how they have developed over the series. But, the reason I read and now listen to all of his books is that he has well-developed, interesting, and juicy evil characters. I enjoy listening to Richard Ferrone's narration; for me, he is the voice of Lucas Davenport. This is an enjoyable book, even if you have never read the series. Take it to the beach, or hammock , or a comfy chair. Just take a chance, and you may get hooked on a new series.
I have had a stressful week and was looking for something fun and lighthearted to listen to. Naughty in Nice fit the bill perfectly. Katherine Kellgren is wonderful narrator, solid british accent without sounding campy. The story has some nice twists without becoming convuluded. If you are looking for a lighthearted, fun mystery, I strongly recommend that you give this book a chance.
I was very disappointed in this book. I did not like the characters at all, they were dull. The narration was blase. Overall, there was no passion, no interesting characters, no gripping story line.
This book struck me as the 3rd book in a 3 book contract. Just get it done so that the author has completed his obligation.
I know that Grisham has the talent, and that Jackson has a great voice. I believe that their future projects will be better.
Don't let The Racketeer tempt you, just pass on this one.
Robert K. Tanenbaum is one of my favorite authors. He delivers a good story in Bad Faith. However, his longer books (Malice, Betrayed, Escape) are truly memorable. If you have followed the series, this continues the story line in an entertaining way. If you are considering your first Tanenbaum listen, choose Malice instead. This was my first listen to a Peter Berkrot performance, it was solid, but not quite what I expected. For these novels, I prefer Mel Foster or Charles Legget as the narrator. Overall, a good listen, but not a great one.
For me, cozies are a guilty pleasure. I usually buy them to help me get through chores that I do not want to do. This story did not disappoint.
I liked that it picked up where the other book left off. I was glad that they saved the recipies until the end of the book.
I would not listen to another on of Suzanne Toren's performances. I do not think that she did a bad job, I just did not like her style at all.
I really wanted to listen to long stretches of the book while I was working. The story was entertaining enough to allow me to do that. However, I could only listen to Suzanne for an hour tops.
Although I have read all of Diane Mott Davidson's books, this is the first one that I have listened to. This is a bit different from her other novels, but I liked the focus on Goldy's relationship with Tom.
This was a fun book. I bought it to help me get through my spring cleaning, and it was perfect. There were spots that made me laugh out loud while I was fighting dust bunnies and reorganizing closets. The plot had enough twists that it kept my interest over my 2 day cleaning frenzy.
