Like another reviewer I thought there was WAY too much Shaker history in the story. I mean, the history was interesting, but if I wanted to read a detailed history of the Shakers, I'd get a history book. It seems to me that without the history the book would have been too short, so the author may have added it to fill pages. The basic back story was interesting, but WAY too detailed!
I was looking for a new series to start and stumbled on this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next one. Like one of the previous reviewers, I noticed a jump in the action where one second they were doing a deposition and the next second they were in court, but otherwise a great book.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and interplay between the characters. However, I found the frequent use of the F word offensive, I know Marines talk like that, but if I wanted to hear it, I'd be a Marine. For this reason, and for this reason ONLY, I won't be listening to any more of the books in this series. It's a shame because, as I said, the story itself is excellent.
The book was pretty cute. Not hilarious, like other reviewers said, but cute. Pepe reminded me of my chihuahua, who I had to put down last year at the age of 15, so I guess that's why I don't want to listen to further books in the series just yet.
The book was pretty good. I expected it to be funnier, like Joan Hess' Arly Hanks series, but it was alright. It did get a little confusing when, about 6:45 into Chapter 11, Claire was magically transported from her couch with Peter to her office with Edward. Is that actually in the book, or did the narrator skip a page or 2?
Because of my stressful job, I really wanted something light and funny. I am thoroughly enjoying this book. The characters and story are funny but the author still has a mystery in the book. I highly recommend this book and hope Audible gets more of this series soon.
When I read the previous reviews on this book, I was skeptical, but decided to listen anyway. I completely disagree with the previous reviews. I enjoyed the book enough to buy the next one, and Teresa DeBerry did a very good job narrating. I appreciate the main character having a slight Texas accent, since she IS from Texas.
The book was OK, but the end didn't make sense. Apparently, some pages were skipped because Natalie was in the building, in the car, then in the building again. And she mentioned driving through the window, which never happened - at least in the reading it didn't! Please be sure the entire book is read; otherwise, why are we buying them from Audible???
I've been thoroughly enjoying the Phryne Fisher stories. The history of 1928 Australia is very interesting. Having Jewish grandparents, I particularly enjoyed this this book. And Stephanie Daniel did GREAT Jewish accents, nu?
I agree with a previous reviewer; the vampire stuff was rather silly. The story, however, was as good as expected - vampires not withstanding.
I'd never heard of these books before, but figured I'd give them a try. Totally enjoyable! Fun story line, and the reader is excellent. I love the accents. This is a great series if you're looking for light listening with a bit of excitement. And I find the description of 1932 England fascinating.
