    Story
    "Started slowly, boring narration, ended better."
    Would you try another book from Victoria Houston and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Possibly. I was intrigued by the Northern setting, the fishing angle, and the female sheriff, but the narrator, to me, was fairly boring. The book ended on a high note, so I might possibly read another in the series, but I'll be unlikely to purchase another audio book version in this series.


    Would you recommend Dead Angler to your friends? Why or why not?

    Possibly, if they have a special interest in mysteries with an outdoor setting. It's not one of my "must read" books.


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

    I thought her narration was quite flat. She didn't seem that invested in the characters and there wasn't much voice differentiation between one character and the next.


    Was Dead Angler worth the listening time?

    Not really. It ended well, but the beginning and middle started slowly and remained fairly tedious. I'm not sure if that were because of the writing or narration, but I suspect that the book would read better than it listened.

    Story
    "Too fishy for me"

    The writer is skilled but the story was more about fishing than any of the characters. I felt as if there was going to be a fishing test at the end of the book.
