Family Treed: The Big Uneasy Volume 1.5 | [Pauline Baird Jones]

Family Treed: The Big Uneasy Volume 1.5

"Family Treed" is 1.5 in my Big Uneasy series. This short story is my amuse bouche, a taste, a quick bite for my readers, a chance to check in on Nell and Alex (from Relatively Risky). Nell's not sure why the mob wants to have dinner with her. She is sure she wants a cop at her side. Alex wouldn't let Nell dine with the mob without him, despite much unease from his many siblings. But as the dark and stormy night's dinner progresses, Nell wonders if she's putting Alex's life in danger. Can they survive dinner with the killing cousins?

    "A Little Mob Gem!"
    Any additional comments?

    "Family Treed" is a quick listen that is thoroughly enjoyable. I didn’t really know what to expect because I had not read or listened to Pauline Baird Jones’ first book in the series, Relatively Risky: The Big Uneasy. I didn’t have any difficulty getting into the story (I really enjoy short stories).

    The story centers on Nell, who just recently learned that she is related to the New Orleans mob. [Apparently in Relatively Risky it is explained that her parents escaped the mob way of life and changed their identities to hide from it.] With both parents now dead, Nell is not sure if she should get to know the mob side of her family better. When she is invited to an uncle’s home for dinner, she takes love interest Alex with her, who just happens to be a cop. For obvious reasons, the family is not happy with her choice of dinner companion.

    Leah Frederick’s narration was good. It moved quickly and I was totally engrossed in listening to the story as I was driving to work. Leah has a knack for comedic roles and snarky comments are delivered with aplomb.

    In short, this little gem pleasantly surprised me. I was so impressed that I have since bought the first audio book in the series to see where it all began!
