It was fun and well written, and there were enough suspects to make it interesting.

No. Her performance in this book distracted from what was otherwise an enjoyable cozy. I almost gave up on the audiobook and read the print version, but I made it through to the end. Her voice is pleasant, but her cadence is terrible. She comes across like a seventh grader trying to read out loud in front of the class. Not the worst reader I've ever come across, but still pretty bad.
This is a promising writer, but she needs to find a new narrator. I notice Pilar Uribe also narrates the sequel, and I'll be reading it in print.
I think the Spellmans are great fun. I read the first book, thought it was hilarious, and wondered whether the reader of an audiobook would do justice to the quirky characters. I was pleasantly surprised; the reader does a superb job, and the second book is just as funny as the first. Recommended light reading.
It's hard to get past the reader while listening to this book. Hey, there's no such word as nucular. It's nuclear. Nu-cle-ar. She has a song-song voice that's pretty hard to take,and she stutters several times. Also, thanks to the author for giving away the ending to the first book in this series. I guess I won't be reading that.
