This story has magic, a love story, and exotic locales - all done well. It narration was well-done and easy to listen too.
You find out 'whodunnit' at the end of the book and it seems rather pointless. You don't discover the WHY they did it.
The methods of each individual character demise was inventive and unique, not something you find in most murder mysteries. It did keep you listening to find out who and how.
I liked the narration - not too involved in the murders but moved the story along. His polite butler as the story teller was in good voice.
I'm left with the feeling that I should have read the former stories (if there are any) and the certainty that I should read the next one.
I read this many years ago and loved it and now to have it read to me was a delight. The voices used for the characters were just as my imagined ones. Our heroine is looking for more excitement in her career; our hero looking for more normalcy; how their two different professions bring them together is the magic. The narrator gives the older and the younger their own unique voices and you never have to imagine who is speaking. I'm going to eagerly awaiting the next PAX novel to come to audio.
It's just the right length for a commute to the office; the set- up is sufficiently tight and the denouement is satisfying. The narrator gives good feeling to the woman's plight.
Yes, it's a good romance with nice characters, no violence or 'bad' language
The accents of all the characters are consistent and believable for the character
