    "Loved it"

    This is a great start to a very good series. The characters are well developed and the plot had enough twists and turns to keep me interested. I look forward to the next book.

    "Coming back for more"
    Where does Books Can Be Deceiving rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely near the top of the books I've listened to! I have come back for more of this series and intend to keep doing so.


    What does Allyson Ryan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Allyson Ryan brings the characters to life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I have really enjoyed the character development and the development of relationships between characters. Jenn McKinlay does a good job of giving her characters depth and making them different from each other, yet all relatable.

    "Good start for this library themed series"

    Loved the characters. Plot was quite good as well, I'm a sucker for library related mysteries I especially like those strictly about people with no assorted cats or dogs thrown in . Not so patiently waiting for the next book in the series h

    "Cozy series, is good."
    Where does Books Can Be Deceiving rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Middle range. They are entertaining but somewhat predictable. However I did buy the whole series.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Maybe but does give voice to the various characters


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

    I would not make a film of it

    "Good Story, Irritating Narrator"
    What did you like best about Books Can Be Deceiving? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the story, but it was a bit of a challenge to stay with it because of the narrator. Her "voices" were irritating and didn't seem to fit the characters, and her intonation didn't fit the story, at least not for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not sure if I'll spring for the next book in this series. I would like to learn more about the characters, but I don't know if I'm curious enough to listen to this narrator again. I might switch to paper for the next book.
