    "A nice easy listen"

    Not great. Not bad. I think I got it for the curiousity factor. So many different writers. I give them a lot of credit for creativity.

    "Great fun!"

    Each of these very talented authors had a chapter to write, which would be followed by the next author, who had to put her own spin on the story, which would be subsequently followed by yet another author with yet another spin! What glorious fun! I enjoyed this entire book and looked forward to each chapter, wondering how this author would carry the story forward and eventually ... how it would all end!

    "Fun"

    It was fun to see how each writer handled what she was given. However it became too fantastic to believe.

    "loved it!"

    I enjoyed the storyline, the characters, the plot, and the intrigue. The co-authors were brilliant in making the chapters flow seamlessly. Susan Erickson is my favorite narrator. I read just about everything she narrates especially JD Robb's in death series.

    "Serial Novel? Great,I hope they do another"

    This was so interesting,and so worth every penny. I was skeptical on how it would flow, but these authors did a great job. Loved the story and the characters. If you are familar with any of the authors you will be able to tell by style who wrote which chapter. I really loved this and know I will listen to this more then a few times. As always, Susan you are one of the greatest at narration. Keeps you guessing till the end. Hope they do it again.

    "Completely enjoyable."

    I thoroughly enjoyed the way each author took the story and characters from the previous author and ran with it. It was so much fun to see what was going to happen next. A book I will keep in my collection and listen to again and again.
