    "Refreshing"

    Love the storyline. Combines an old fashioned simple charm with some mystery and mild suspense. I really enjoy the character development and ethical questions raised. Narrator is good but in some areas distracting with the tone of her voice. Not my fav but most my least fav either.

    "couldn't follow the reader"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The voice of the reader did not match the personality of the main character. I couldn't get past the pitch and tone of the voice to hear the story. There was no "white space" in the reading, no time to process. Words were moving too fast.


    Has Deeper Water turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. I would like to give the author another chance. I am considering the last book which has a different reader


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different reader


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sorry and disappointed. I like to read books within a series, but not with this reader.

    "More a character study than a legal thriller"
    Any additional comments?

    I read this book looking for a legal thriller, which is not quite what I received; the main character is a law student, and most of the book takes place around a law firm, but most of the development is character-based. While I do not agree with all of Tami's religious convictions, I enjoyed seeing her stretch and grow as she lives apart from her parents and comes across other Christians that do not always agree with her. I was quite surprised seeing her spend so much time alone with Vince, which seemed quite uncharacteristic for someone of her background, which is really the only consistent part of this book. It was gratifying to have a mystery element without blood and gore and guts, and how perceptions can colour innocent comments into something much bigger than they are. I look forward to reading the rest of this series to see how Tami, Vince, Zach, Julie and the others grow.

    "Did Not Provide What the Sales Page Promises"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Clearly, this book was written for the Christian literature audience.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Whitlow’s story?

    It was dull, stilted, and the main character was very shallow.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Not sure how to improve the performance when you're working with such a limited book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was so dull and disappointing that I could not make it through the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    Please fix Audible sales page for this book to clearly indicate that this is Christian literature and not to be confused with a thriller.

    "A Pleasant listen"
    Where does Deeper Water rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the more enjoyable books I've listened to in a while. The plot and characters make sense, the dialog is believable, and the story kept my attention without being too intense. The book was also well read.


    What other book might you compare Deeper Water to and why?

    I would compare this book to any by Dee Henderson.


    Any additional comments?

    Whitlow has developed an enjoyable plot with interesting characters. The story includes humor and seriousness, conflict and resolution, and a Christian framework without coming off as preachy.

    "This book is totally misrepresented by description"

    From the description Audible provided for this book, I expected a John Grisham- type novel. Instead I received a book that appears to be written for deeply religious adolescent girls. Compared to this book's angelic main character and her loving family, Nancy Drew was a juvenile delinquent being raised by neglectful parents.

    I want my money back! This book should be listed as a Christian novel written for adolescents--and for heaven's sake, get rid of the reference to John Grisham novels.
