"If you love My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Stephanie Plum, this is definitely the series for you!" (Christine Feehan)
"Smart, sassy Sofie knocks the ball out of Shea Stadium in this colorful concoction." (Publishers Weekly)
"The flair and cultural humor this dynamic writing duo brings to their Sofie books is energizing and giggle-producing. Snappy dialogue and offbeat characters ensure a great time!" (Romantic Times BookReviews)
Books from this series are all reasonably entertaining as long as you don't pay too much attention. My complaints first: The format is so similar to the Stephanie Plum books that it can elicit eye rolls. The narrator on this one is different from the other books. The narration is mostly very good... but, she only does three voices: Sophie, Rosie and then everyone else is Greek, even if they are Hispanic or Jewish.
That being said, all of the books are fast paced and amusing and this is the best of the lot.
Fans of the Sofie Metropolis audiobooks are saddened at the passing of Narrator Anna Fields and we miss her way of bringing Greek America to the rest of us. Ms Rogers does a capable job of of continuing the story, but I would find myself missing the way Anna spoke certain words or voices. Aside from the narrator issue, I enjoyed the story and hope that the author will continue with the new storyline direction introduced at the end of the book.
I cannot seem to be able to get past a few moments of this book. The new narrator reads like she is going to a fire and cannot seem to do multiple voices. Why they changed from Anna Fields is lost on me. It was certainly a waste of my credits to buy this book. Very disappointed.
