I liked the story. However, if I didn't have trouble seeing, I would've stopped listening because of the narrator!! She is horrible, I mean who on earth actually talks that way?? She has weird pronunciation of words, that started to really drive me crazy!! (especially the word "garage" she prounances it "gaa-raage".) Also, she is terrible with her rendition of the character's voices!! She actually took away from the humor that the author intended.Stephanie Bond is a great author, however, this narrator hurt her book! I hope she doesn't use her in the future!!
EVERYTHING!!! Especially the way she prounances certain words, (especially garage! omg! I wanted to slap her & tell her to speak right!!)Also, she does a terrible job with the character's voices! Book would've been so much better with a different narrator!!
I laughed out loud in few places, was on the edge of my seat, & could barely stop listening because I enjoyed the story so much! I actually almost stopped listening because of the narrator, but couldn't because I wanted to finish the book!!
Looking forward to book two in this series, as well as many of the author's other books!

Nothing really. For reasons beyond me they hired a woman with a thick Canadian accent to read this book that is supposed to take place in Cajun country.
Yes if they get a different narrator or the story takes place in Canada.
Her accent and when the narrator did the voice of Penny's young assistant she made her sound like a 40 year old truck stop waitress from Toronto who smokes a pack a day.
Penny, she did fulfil the role of heroine but she could be painfully stupid at times. I know that was done to drive the plot along but it got a little silly at times. But overall a cute fun story.
First of all, the word "Humorous" in the title is a bit of a stretch. There are obvious parts that were trying to inject humor, but it just came off feeling uncomfortable and ridiculous -slap-stick events that are neither funny, nor necessary.
Second of all, the narrator is not great. The main male character is supposed to have a Creole accent, and instead it's just a gruff southern-ish accent. I also had to cringe every time she said "garage."
Lastly, if you're looking for a fun story with some urban fantasy thrown in like I was, you won't find it here. It's just a murder mystery story with characters you love to hate and a main character who can't catch a break.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Not as bad as all the reviewers are complaining about. This book was a bit funny, albeit not a lot of depth to it. My worst complaint would be that the main character's inner dialog with herself was slightly whinny. Over all if you are looking for a light romance with some mystery this would be a good choice, but I recommend waiting until this book is on sale. I have read other books by Stephanie Bond and have enjoyed them before. Also the narrator is not as horrible as stated, even if she can't pronounce garage. I happened to pick it up with the Whispersync program so for a few bucks I enjoyed it.
The story was not bad. It was a little drawn out but, overall a decent story. But, my ears were practically bleeding from this narrator. The strange pronunciations nearly made me turn it off. I understand that different regions have different accents, but when you are reading southern you need to be SOUTHERN. I have 3 more of Stephanie Bond's book narrated by the woman. I'm almost afraid to listen to them for fear the words garage and herb are in them.
The story was a good mystery with lots of twists that kept me guessing.
The only thing I didn't like about this audio book was that the characters are from Louisiana and the narrator sounded like she was from Wisconsin. Not a good combination.
I liked the characters, and the setting.
The main character was funny, and relatable.
The narrator was all wrong. Her accent and pronunciation of some words was off putting.
Marie - she should have her own story so we could learn more about her ESP, and mysterious (or make believe) boyfriend.
The story/plot seemed unfinished in some ways. However, it was a good introduction and set up for a new series.
The story is set in the south Louisiana, and all the characters have awful not remotely southern accents
not a good fit for the story
omg loved it.... was fast funny.... did not want to stop and get out of car. it's worth every penny or credit.
I was so excited when i heard it was in Louisiana cause I love to hear my La accent in stories. Then i was greatly disappointed. The narrator killed this performance, not in a good way. Im going to go get the next book right now and Im crossing my fingers we get a new narrator.
