    Unsure if she is looking for Mr. Right, or Mr. Every Other Saturday Night, divorced mother of two, Laurel McKay reluctantly joins THE LOVE CLUB, a popular local dating service. Dressed to kill, she meets bachelor number one at a trendy restaurant. But the date is a bust, literally, when the guy decides Laurel is dessert, and she breaks his nose with her cell phone. It gets even worse when the man is found murdered the next morning, and Laurel has his blood on her clothes.

    "Fun cozy mystery, no so wonderful reader"

    Would you listen to Dying for a Date again? Why?

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


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dying for a Date?

    Mom operating heavy equipment


    Would you be willing to try another one of Pilar Uribe’s performances?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    When Izzy Spellman, PI, is arrested for the fourth time in three months, she writes it off as a job hazard. She's been (obsessively) keeping surveillance on a suspicious next door neighbor (suspect's name: John Brown), convinced he's up to no good - even if her parents (the management at Spellman Investigations) are not.

    Sherri says: "What a difference the narrator makes"
    "Great fun"
    Overall

    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.

    Mary says: "Disappointing"
    "Reader isn't great"
    Overall

    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.
