    My favorite genre is mystery/thriller especially espionage. I dislike the paranormal. Some non-fiction. 1000+ books in my Audible library.

    "Great twist at the end!"

    Fall From Grace is a good detective novel with a great twist at the end. Unfortunately Angela Dawe's voice is as irritating as the sound of scratching on a blackboard. I seldom downrate a novel due to poor narration, but an exception is appropriate here.

    Story
    "Great Start to a Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fall From Grace to be better than the print version?

    yes, I love Angela Dawe males voices and went looking for more work after the Tiffany Snow series. I have this whole series but I purchased out of order due to getting one on Sale. This book is a Romance Mystery hence the hard comments of other core mystery reviewers. This was a bit slower in the first portion of the book as author was sitting the stage for the series and story, but make NO mistake you will enjoy it and say wow when the clues come together! If you love fast adventure pace, the other stories in this series are a bit faster. You may want to pick another to start this series and get hooked and buy all as I did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    David's closeness to his daughter "Lilyput". This story evoked lots of emotion along with a mystery that blows you away. Not sure what genre I found this series, but these are mysteries with a hint of romance. Not core romance with lots of heat. I found this series did make time disappear and make me want to listen all at once.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favorite?

    Kenny, as his wit makes him sexy in the series. You may have to get use to A.D. female cadence, but her male voices are so worth a listening time. I am working my way through her recording library as I love her that much.

    Story
    "Too much -- and unrealistic -- romance for me!"

    I was disappointed with the setup for this story, because I found it unbelievable that a homicide cop would get involved with the husband of a murder victim in a case that she herself was investigating. It got to be a "very serious relationship" -- very fast (in days) and it seemed like this woman was not spending any time at work...

    If you can suspend disbelief in this area, which after all is the whole basis of the story, you may not be able to get past the narrator, Angela Dawe, who (as someone else mentioned) has a weird inflection to her voice as she reads. Almost a little Valley Girl inflection, where there is an expectant lift at the end of sentences that just sounds wrong, somehow. As I listened, I kept thinking "how would I have read that?" -- which was a bit distracting. The odd thing is that she did dialogue wonderfully and distinguished all the characters' voices well.

    I gave this 3 stars overall because there is an interesting twist at the end of the story that I liked. I will pass on the rest of the series, however. I got this one to "try out" a series that was new to me (I'm always looking for mystery authors I haven't read before).

    Story
    "Bad book with a worse narrator."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator and a less ridiculous plot.


    Has Fall From Grace turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It's turned me off from this particular series, for sure. I'm really glad I didn't buy them all at one time.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Angela Dawe, the narrator, sounds like she's got a very specific New England accent-- like she's trying to sound like she's from the Hamptons in 1940. After an hour of listening to Edith Beale tell me a stupid story I was going insane.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No. The romantic plot was ludicrous and completely unbelievable for about 10 different reasons. All of the fictional devices used were so tired and cliché I actually found myself rolling my eyes as I listened.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be going out of my way to avoid this narrator in the future. There are too many good ones out there to waste time on a dud.

    "Rather predictable"

    A bit too much romance for my taste, but I'm sure not for others. The final solution felt like it popped out of a hat. But I had to finish it.

    Story
    "Entertaining, but reader is off-putting."

    The writing was fine. A little predictable in spots, but entertaining.

    I had a terrible problem listening to this book, though. The reader puts inflections on words at the end of the sentences or at other odd places. It's a little bit maddening.

    Will listen to the next because I like the author.

    Story
    "Pretty awful"

    "Oh, my what will I do without a boyfriend? However, can I be a competent homicide cop or a full participant in my own family's special occasions? I'm so alone and empty."
    If you can tolerate that from your main character throughout this recording, then you may find a way to give this book more than one star.

    I was assembling furniture and used this book to distract me during the tedious work. I almost turned it off and hunted for another selection. In truth, I got this from the lending library and didn't pay for this item. Had I bought it, I would be miffed rather than just bored.

    This book wouldn't even cut for beachside entertainment, in my view. So much for a worthwhile female lead here.

    "Disappointing"

    Disjointed, unclear and no flow to the story. Long winded an hard to get into the story. You never really get the feel of any of the characters or where the author is trying to go with the story. DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!

    "Decent but..."

    Reasonably decent story; but awful reader, and absolutely riddled with clichés. Not sure if I'll try any more by this author.
