The story was entertaining and easy to listen to, the only problem was the characters. The villains in the story are CRAZY! Not a bad guy romance novel revenge kind of crazy, but a looney bin crazy. All of the villas were just so ridiculous it was hard listening to their reasons why they were doing what they were doing. It was difficult to keep listening to this book because the author, while doing a good job, digs way too much into their heads. Then with their heads all being Loco, it is difficult to keep going.
I found this to be a fairly-typical Dorothy Garlock "Americana" novel. I can always count on being entertained for several hours, but know I am not going to come away with any life-changing revelations. My only complaint with Ms. Garlock was the over-use of the "GD" curse phrase. The book was entertaining, if somewhat predictable. However, the narration often made me cringe. Between Fawn's lisp and stilted voice and Chester's nasal voice reminiscent of Mr. Haney on the Green Acres TV show, I often felt myself cringing. I found the voices to be like "nails on a chalk board." The book would have been a better listen without the overly-dramatic narration.
