    "Great roller coaster!"
    What made the experience of listening to Boiled Over the most enjoyable?

    Read the first book and decided to Audio this one. They should make first book audio as well. I honestly had no clue how it was going to end and the narration was great.

    Story
    "Families ties can be murder"

    Julia Snowden left her high powered New York job to help her family keep the Snowden Family Clambake making a profit, but she still plans to return to her "real" job. She's already helped in one murder investigation, getting her boyfriend out of trouble. Now on the Founder's Day committee, she comes to the docks to check on the Snowden families giant Clam baking oven, just to find a human leg hanging out of the fire and her newest young employee, Cabe, running away from the scene. Drawn into the investigation once again, Julia sets out to prove that this nice young kid, Cabe, is definitely innocent.

    I really have been enjoying this series. I like the atmosphere and food descriptions of the Maine coast and all of it's seafood. The cast of returning characters have really grown on me, and the situations and clues to this new mystery are done with suspense that kept me guessing, but definitely led me to the solution. I listened to this on audio and enjoyed the narration.

    "Who has it in for the Snowden Family Business"
    Where does Boiled Over rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Good Plot that kept my interest Enjoyed getting to know the regular characters.

    Each time i thought i had figured out "who dunnit" new twists made me re-think who culprit was.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Boiled Over?

    better appreciation of culture and business of folks in small communities trying to make a living.


    Have you listened to any of Dara Rosenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes Comparable performance to other books


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

    Nothing wrong I do have sine favorite narrators Other than the Main Clam Bake Mysteries i've only read 2 other books Narrated by Dara Rosenberg


    Any additional comments?

    Cannot wait to Read 3rd book in series (Mussled Out)

    Love New England Mysteries (past and present)

    "Worst narration ever"

    I bought this book after reading the Kindle version of the first book in the series. I almost stopped listening to the book. Dara Rosenberg nearly ruined the book by adding emphasis at odd times. I'm not saying skip the book, which was fine, but be warned the narration is annoying.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Skip This Narration!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I could barely follow the story because the narration was so poor. I ended up reading the book instead. Usually a narrator that starts out badly gets the hang of it eventually, but not in this case. Poorly read and badly over-acted. But she enunciates well.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dara Rosenberg?

    A better narrator


    Could you see Boiled Over being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    "Great book poorly read"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book, yes, this audible version, no.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Barbara Ross is an excellent cozy mystery writer. Great to have one set in Maine.


    What didn’t you like about Dara Rosenberg’s performance?

    Her dialogue was unrealistic and jarring.


    Any additional comments?

    Barbara Ross deserves a better reader.
