    "Couldn't handle it..."
    Would you try another book from Laura Levine and/or Brittany Pressley?

    I would consider buying a book by Laura Lavine in print. Not an audiobook anymore.


    Has Death of a Trophy Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I made it about a chapter in and I had to turn it off. I felt like I was in elementary school again being read to by my fourth grade teacher. The narration is awful.

    "Funny and entertaining"

    I am thrilled that I started to listen to these books. They are incredibly funny and entertaining. I enjoy all of Jaine and her father's hijinks. The mystery is well plotted and fast paced. Anyone who likes light mysteries will love this book.
