After listening to 3 of her books, I've come to expect that every single one will feature 1. Nantucket 2. food obsession (one character is always a chef, restaurant owner or amazing chef/foodie) 3. tragic death (someone's gonna die, or just died, or died years ago, tragically and someone else is haunted by it) and 4. lots and lots of alcohol (champagne, scotch, beer - it's always consumed to excess). I like her books, and the characters are fun, but...she needs to get some new schtick.
In addition, the narrator was awful, for several reasons: First, she made the character of Margo sound about 95, and she also made Miles sound like he was about 11. In addition: incredibly pretentious way of speaking. What's with throwing in the letter H where none exists? "Porter" pronounced "Port-Her" and "meeting" pronounced "Meet-Hing." Sooo annoying. And, while on the one hand, she pronounced every French word with an incredibly pretentious overly French dialect, on the other hand, she inexplicably pronounced "Hermes" as "Her-meez" instead of the way it is suppose to be pronounced, which is "Air-mez" What narrator wouldn't know the proper pronunciation of a famous designer?
