DISCLAIMER: I received a free audiobook copy of this in return for my honest review.
I enjoyed the narration of this audio book.
I felt there were too many characters to keep track of, but the story line was okay and the plot did keep a good pace. Just wasn't for me.
I was pretty disappointed in this book. I was hoping for a cozy mystery, but got more of a damsel in distress. Vickie is so clueless that she gets one person killed and nearly gets herself and another killed. Her determination to find her daughter's killer does not match her personality. The romance scenes are so awkward that I would have skipped them entirely if I hadn't been listening to the audio version. The writing was really clunky and created staccato sentences that broke up the flow of the book.
This is the second book I've heard narrated by Lee Ann Howlett. Once again, the pacing was slow and I had to turn it up to 3x speed. However, her characters are always distinct and varied and it is possibly the only good thing about this book.
The audiobook is the only thing that saves it.
