    "Beware, this is a continuation of another book."
    Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Yes, I think Tami Hoag is a good author.


    If you’ve listened to books by Tami Hoag before, how does this one compare?

    This one isn't as great as others.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was ok.


    Did Guilty as Sin inspire you to do anything?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    The list of characters was really long, and I had to write them down in a notebook to keep track. I don't know why so many characters were needed for the story.

    "Great listen, but something is missing..."
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Definitely some suspenseful material


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer VanDyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Solid!


    Any additional comments?

    Make sure you listen to Night Sins first! Great characters and great build up for the end, once the mystery is revealed there is not enough details about all that the "bad guys" did. I'm not one to rewrite an authors book but this ones ending did let me down a bit. still highly recommend it! But I feel like there is a lot left unresolved with these great characters.

    "Meh."

    I normally like a good thriller, but this was all over the place and I was more looking forward to getting it over with than finding out how it ends.

    I love to read, but I can never find the time. Audible allows me to "read" while I'm doing other things.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure, I couldn't get very far in the book.


    What was most disappointing about Tami Hoag’s story?

    I just loved her other 3 books that I read. For some reason I could not get into this book. I found my self rewinding it over and over.


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer VanDyck’s performance?

    I can't say if it was her performance or if the book was not interesting to me.

    "Great Story, typical Tami Hoag story"
    What made the experience of listening to Guilty as Sin the most enjoyable?

    I thought the story was very entertaining. It wasn't dull, it wasn't unbelievable, & it was pretty quick paced.


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

    I thought this book was well written, it wasn't an edge of your seat kind of book but it was still very enjoyable.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck?

    I'm pretty new to the whole audio book thing so it has taken some getting used to. I thought this narrator was really good except when she did the voice of Brooks, I could never get into his character as a good guy so I always thought he was kind of creepy & I've read a lot of Tami Hoag & I usually love her romances that mix into the book but this time around I couldn't get into it & I'm pretty sure it was b/c of the delivery of his voice/character by the narrator.

    Story
    "Bit of a Drag"
    What would have made Guilty as Sin better?

    Terser plot, more realistic portrayal of the investigation and trial, less repetition of dull and uninteresting conversations between main character and her creepy love interest. The main character is a prosecutor and the case should be a slam dunk, but then a bad boyfriend from her former life takes over the defense and it's like she just loses all will and ability to prosecute the case. There isn't much suspense, the pace is too slow and there are no serious developments until 3/4 of the way through the book. Basically you could slog through "Night Sins" then skip to the last 50 pages of "Guilty as Sin" without missing anything.


    What was most disappointing about Tami Hoag’s story?

    Everything.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes. The narrator did an OK job with what she had, but the text was just incredibly lame.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Guilty as Sin?

    Most of them, leaving less than 100 pages of meaningful story.

    "Reading this was like pulling teeth"

    This particular story was a good idea but so very poorly executed. Repetitive phrases, way too much detail on unimportant items. Sexual harassment written as if it were flirting dialogue.
    I have enjoyed Tami Hoag books before, but now I'm not sure if I will even attempt another Hoag book.

    always wondering who did it

    J Brooks entering the story


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

    she is able to bring the characters to life


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes but I can't give it up.
