I love Elmore Leonard but I just wasn't captivated by this book. Not really sure if it was the story or the narrator but I never finished it. Maybe I'll go back to it someday and try again.
I probably will listen again when enough time has passed for me to be a little surprised by things.
I just love the honesty in the character of Daisy Dobbs. Her ability to listen to others and not be afraid of questioning herself is refreshing. Really appreciate a strong female character in post WW1 England. And, of course, the mystery was complicated and intriguing.
This is a great series for those of us who like a measured pace and fully developed characters. The stories feel like they are about real people. I would suggest starting the series from the beginning to really appreciate the character of Daisy.
