    "Good detective yarn"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Family Honor to be better than the print version?

    What a silly question.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Family Honor?

    The thing that makes the story interesting is the relationship between the protagonist, Sunny, and her charge, the young Millicent. They form an interesting pair.


    What does Andrea Thompson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a wonderful, adaptable voice, with enough bass to bring life to male characters, as well as female. She was able to create several distinct vocal choices for her characters. Her reading was insightful in most parts. There were only a few moments where I felt she missed the proper emphasis in delivering a line, and there were plenty where I smiled at the choice she made in emphasizing the dialogue between characters. It is, after all, the dialogue where this story shines, and the reader, Ms. Thompson, does a good job of bringing that to life. Thompson gets better as she warms up to the story. The last two thirds of the book is where she really shines.

    The beginning of the novel must have had some sort of prologue because there is a male reader who I really did not like and have no idea what or why he was involved in the project. He sounded like he was trying to narrate a porno. The musical introduction was really annoying, too, and obscured the first few lines of the reading. Thank goodness it only appears twice!


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

    Underestimate her...at your peril.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole experience was great, and I was very sorry to see that book 2 in the Sunny Randall series is not offered on Audible!

    "Couldn't finish it"

    The foul language was unnecessary. I could not finish the book. The story was good but...
