    "Loved the book, hated the narrator!!"
    What made the experience of listening to In Deep Voodoo the most enjoyable?

    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!!


    What aspect of Maureen Jones’s performance would you have changed?

    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!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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!!


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to book two in this series, as well as many of the author's other books!

    Story
    "A bad narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to In Deep Voodoo the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephanie Bond? Why or why not?

    Yes if they get a different narrator or the story takes place in Canada.


    What didn’t you like about Maureen Jones’s performance?

    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.


    Who was the most memorable character of In Deep Voodoo and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope

    not a good fit for the story

    Story
    "Hard on the ears!"

    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.

    Story
    "Too long and too ridiculous."

    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.

    "Cute Story"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was a good mystery with lots of twists that kept me guessing.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    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.

    "Promising First in Series"
    What did you love best about In Deep Voodoo?

    I liked the characters, and the setting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character was funny, and relatable.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was all wrong. Her accent and pronunciation of some words was off putting.


    Who was the most memorable character of In Deep Voodoo and why?

    Marie - she should have her own story so we could learn more about her ESP, and mysterious (or make believe) boyfriend.


    Any additional comments?

    The story/plot seemed unfinished in some ways. However, it was a good introduction and set up for a new series.

    I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review.

    "Choose your friends carefully."
    Where does In Deep Voodoo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was light and without a lot of substance but pretty entertaining nevertheless. I think I would rate it in the middle of the bell curve.


    Would you recommend In Deep Voodoo to your friends? Why or why not?

    I have friends who would love this book and others who would think it rididculous- I would be careful who I recommended it to.


    Which character – as performed by Maureen Jones – was your favorite?

    The protagonist certainly. I liked her pluck.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Watch your step- there's deep voodoo ahead.

    "couldn't finish"
    What would have made In Deep Voodoo better?

    audiobooks are all about the narrator, they can make or break a great story. I don't know how good this story is because I couldn't finish it. The reader did not fit the story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stephanie Bond again?

    Perhaps with a different reader
