"With Phryne Fisher, the indefatigable Greenwood has invented the character-you-fall-in-love-with genre." (Australian)
Loved the stories. I hadn't read any Phryne Fisher short stories before, though I've read all the novels. Thoroughly enjoyed them and especially loved the interview with Kerry Greenwood at the beginning in which she gives her MO for writing her fabulous books.
That there were several stories to enjoy, all new material to me.
I always love her performances with her plummy narrative voice and her skill at the different voices and accents.
Phryne Rides Again and Again and Again...
I'd love a similar collection of Corinna Chapman, Kerry Greenwood's lovable modern baker character.
I am a senior citizen living out in the country enjoying nature and my 3 rescued dogs. I like reading good mysteries (even with some comedic undertones); not too complicated self-help books; good recipes (although I never seem to try any). I have quite enjoyed listening to some of the No. 1 Ladies Detective series and David Copperfield (one of the many versions out there). I am looking forward to many more hours of listening enjoyment.
Was surprised by short stories but found the format good for easy listening. Good entertainment.
I liked the book because of the lady detective and all the neat recipes in it. The reader captures the lady very well. I like a strong lady detective .
I always like the endings that tie all the loose threads up so neatly with a flourish.
I always admire her sense of justice after finding out the who done it of the story-line.
I enjoyed spreading this book out as it was about several different cases and I sort of spaced them out to enjoy them longer.
I can't wait for the next Phryne Fisher book and what she will be up to next. I would like to hear more about her adopted family as well.
Plot development and real life characterisations.
Jack Robinson - not your typical policeman.
This is as good as the others.
No, the book was entertainig right throughout.
