what a great book! loved the story line and the narration was amazing! ready to download the next book.
The story is lightweight for easy listening and I didn't know who did it until almost the end. But the narrator was horrible. She read as if she were reading to kindergarten children, slowly and with little emphasis. It was difficult to differentiate between the characters. I may consider future stories only if the narrator changes.
