Simple approach to complicated situations. I loved the fact that Precious finally got to meet her longtime mentor. He tried to explain that he was not the expert she had admired for all these years. Precious, in her simple approach to her life in Botswana, maintained her faith in his expertise and enlisted his advise in a case.
When they foiled the plans of wealthy man who conspired to change the whole concept of the Orphan Farm by building a 'communal" Dining room...in doing would have lined his own pockets.
Have listened to many--this one was equally well done.
My main reaction was pure enjoyment with every chapter.
The main reason these books are so enjoyable, in addition to the great story lines, is that they are read with "English" accent. Just reading the words in a "regular' book, you miss all the nuances built into the story line. The pure simplicity of the lifestyle so well depicted by the author, is brought put by the readers talent.
Like knowing the characters from other books seem like friends.
However, the actual progress of story line really slows.
Hate to say this--"Dust" is one of my least favorites.(Have read ALL her books…)
No…needs new story line.
Needs to get story line back to basics…"forensics"
Main character--lots of depth
Mayhem in the mall !
Fast moving, good portrayal of police action.
One of her best.
There were too many to pick out just one..
Temperance was only one I recognized---speech was clear and imparted emotions that one would expect in specific circumstances.
Diamonds in the Rough
I love Kathy's books for their attention to detail and the variety of her situations.
I like the small number of people in story...as it is easier to 'keep track of characters" when listening.
i can only compare to authors other books because his writing style is one of my favorites.
Continues to include some of same characters in other books, like old friends...
I do like his performance....but I must admit I still think of main character as performed by Darin Mc Gavin in many past books. Just part of my memories....
Not extreme but sort of shocked at extent of main characters injuries..
Love the name of his houseboat--"Busted Flush"--won it in a high stakes poker game..
