I was quickly drawn into the story from the first page and my interest never wavered. The characters were funny, realistic and likable. The plot was interesting and fast paced. This was a great first book to a new cozy mystery series. I look forward to listening to the next book.
First, I am not a mystery buff. I like stories that teach me something new while making me care about the characters, laugh out loud, and leave me feeling as if I would recognize the characters in the market. Vass gave me that in this great novel about friendship, family dynamics, and lessons in how antiques should be valued by their stories first. Surprisingly to me, it had me wanting to help solve the mysteries too. Maybe I am becoming a mystery buff!
If I could have returned this, I would have done so within the first five minutes. Alissa Zea reads the book as though she's got a giant smile on her face the entire time. It's awful. I have listened to several audio books and have never heard a worse performance. She delivers every line like she's answering a question for a Miss America. The quality of writing is also sub-par. If you love Mary Higgins Clark and Kathy Reichs you will certainly find Vicki Vass wanting. I would never EVER read or buy a book by Vicki Vass again. If I find a book I want to listen to and Alissa Zea is narrating I will not be buying it. If I could give the performance 0 stars I would.
Anything not written or read by either of these women.
Don't waste your time or money.
