    Due to being on the road hours most days, I'm an avid Audible fan! I live vicariously through the stories as the miles pass.

    Story
    "Still enjoying this series ..."

    I absolutely love the author's descriptions of North Carolina and the people there. CJ Critt's narration is so enjoyable. The down home phrases and terms of endearment (Shug or Sug -- short for sugar) are particularly sweet for me as I heard them throughout my childhood. She gives Deborah's character a no nonsense manner, but with a definite soft hearted side, and I love her accent in the books. The books are mysteries, but they are also about Deborah's large (LARGE) family and their lives and you can't help but love them and get involved in what's going on in their lives. It can be confusing with many characters mentioned. If you go to the author's website, she has a family tree for this series. :) This particular mystery is quite good and I was unable to "solve" it until all was revealed. Highly recommend the series, but make sure you start at the beginning. JB

    "Strong story but graphic"

    The mystery and family centered story was great. I did find the graphic description of the murder somewhat difficult but still enjoyed the book.
