I love scrapbooking and enjoy listening to books as I work. I multitask. This was not written to be great literature. It is meant to simply be cute and a fast read. It's filled with interesting characters and has the beginnings of a romance. The low rating is because parts of the book were not realistic and these things made the storyline unbelievable. No woman would carry 12x12" pages in her purse (maybe a tote) for days and not know one of them was there. And neither got wrinkled??? Not believable.
The book is a pretty good debut mystery. This one takes some turns that keeps you guessing right till the ending. Keep reading the series. It gets better with each new book.
I think the narrator ruined this for me. From the beginning I was distracted by the narrator's voice. She made the lead character, Faith, sound as old as her grandmothers. However, the narrator can not be blamed for creating a lead character that was annoying and flat. Her involvement in the "investigation" was forced and beyond the scope of her disabilities. As an ex JAG administer, she should have had some scruples. Faith had none. It was just a bad book.
