    "Needs to do research before publishing"

    It wouldn't have hurt to do some research on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Some of the garbage that comes out of the mouths of church members could have been accurate if the author had check with the church. Not too hard to do. If she couldn't do that research, is the countryside she writes about real or does she make it up too. I enjoy a book that is accurate so that if I am ever in that area I can say this is just like *** , and I enjoyed that book so much.

    Story
    "She can clean for me anyday!!!!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was unsure at first about listening to this book. Sometimes a narrator will try to sound "southern" and the outcome is horrible. Not so in this case. Narrator was great, storyline believable, and the characters were well written.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Every Crooked Nanny?

    When I was introduces to the main characters and all of their quirks!!!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Fishing, when she went to find the scientist and he was fishing. Her boots!!!


    Could you see Every Crooked Nanny being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, and I think that Reva McIntyre would/should play lead

    "The characters remind us of family!"
    Would you listen to Every Crooked Nanny again? Why?

    Yes. For the love of the characters and the area.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Held your interest but enjoyed the ride even more.


    What about Hillary Huber’s performance did you like?

    She portrays the attitudes and accents the area.


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

    How well do you really know anyone?


    Any additional comments?

    Fun listening!

    "good southern characters"

    Good, mildly complex mystery story with good characters. I am from Georgia and felt like I have met most of the characters in the book. The narration lacks a little to be desired, however. The narrator has a pleasant voice, and a few of her characters were almost dead-on, almost exactly how I would expect the voice and accent of that person to sound. Mostly, though, she spoke too slowly and enunciated too precisely to sound like any normal person anywhere, southern or otherwise. I don't know if this was the fault of the narrator or the director, but it was very annoying. Not annoying enough to prevent me from enjoying the listen, but I would've enjoyed it a lot more if the narration had been better.

    "Couldn't get into it"

    I've read a couple of books by this author and I have to say that this was probably the worst. I typically read her books while on vacation because they are good for light reading. I'll still try more books by this author and narrator

    "Winner overall with a few irritations"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    You have to be of a particular mindset to enjoy this series, but keep an open mind and enjoy the experience.


    What other book might you compare Every Crooked Nanny to and why?

    Definitely get the other Mary Kay Andrews titles. She has a deadeye aim on southern life and writes with wit and charm!


    Did Hillary Huber do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Narrator really needs to double check some of her city pronunciations. "Beaufort" is not pronounced "Bo-Fort", and at first I didn't even recognize what she was talking about. I do enjoy this narrator but some of the minor characters start to sound alike after a while.


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

    No, this is the perfect pick up and put down and come back listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I adore Mary Kay Andrews and while it took me a while to get used to this series, I am now sold and will listen to all of them.

    "A fun read"

    I'm looking forward to this series. I've read several of Mary Kay's books and enjoy the walk through memory lane. I grew up in Atlanta so it was great to hear her mention all the Landmarks and southern traditions. I really enjoyed the narration, too. It's going to be a good series with hours of smiles and giggles.

    "Not a new Mary Kay Andrews book"
    If you could sum up Every Crooked Nanny in three words, what would they be?

    Not a new Mary Kay Andrews book I originally thought this was A new book by Mary Kay Andrews. I have enjoyed her Savannah Based books. This was a cute story but everything was very date it seems like it was 1970s.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This was a cute story but everything was very date it seems like it was 1970s.


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

    I don't know if I make this into a movie.

    "review"

    I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. I have a new series to listen to. The characters each had their own set of quirks and personality. I think that Edna was my favorite. I was actually laughing out loud at times! The narrator did a wonderful job with all the characters in the story.
