This is the first Lucy Stone Mystery I have read. It was entertaining and suspenseful. I enjoyed the realism of the characters and the plot. I would enjoy listening to other books in this series.
I loved the favorite 'blue jeans' part
Humm, I am having trouble choosing.
Grab your popcorn
Let me start by saying I usually love Leslie Meier books. This one did not meet my expectations. First there is the narration that was hard to handle. Karen White tried to use a thick Maine accent which made it at times difficult to understand. Second was the CD breaks, I am not accustomed to this with audible.com. It really broke the story as it stated that this is the end of the CD. It needed to be edited out. Then there is the story itself which was pretty far fetched and more racy than her other books. I prefer a cleaner book by her.
I don't know what the problem was with the narration. She sounded like she was always out of breath. Very frustrating. Can't recommend because of narration
No narration not good
no, not good enough story
