    "A solid start to a new series"

    This is a solid start to a new series. The plot is well mapped out and the characters are very well developed. The mystery is fast paced and interesting. If you like animals and/or mysteries this is a good book for you. Well worth the credit.

    "Original, lively and humorous murder mystery"

    These zoo people REALLY like animals. I was pleased with the subtle characterizations and the humor from the first. I was not happy that we seemed to be going to wrestle with one of those tedious marriage relationships where the guy is a drunk and the wife decides to blame herself for it and be good enough to change him. BUT -- happily he is quickly found dead in the lion pen, and good riddance. Good plot (are you remembering the brown envelope?), lively action.

    The reader is wrong for this series. The protagonist is a big woman, strong as a man, expresses her anger by throwing several beer bottles at her own door (it was a mistake for hubby to demand she get him a beer while she was in the kitchen.....) and she is really, really good with lions. This gal is no pushover, but Cassandra Campbell reads her in a tiny little high voice that uncertainly goes up on the end of every sentence because she doesn't know how to make a statement. I expect that's the only voice the reader has.

    They should have used a reader who used to ride horses: THAT puts the assertiveness in women's statements! And Our Hero is nothing if not assertive. I see that all these books were read by the same reader, so I'll just read the rest as ebooks. They need to switch out readers at the publisher of these audiobooks, because writer Ann Littlewood is good and may well get a good following.

    "Highly Enjoyable!"

    A very interesting and captivating read! This was my first experience with this author and I will be looking forward to reading the other novels in this series. Both author and narrator have created a wonderful experience! This is a must-read for fans of Betty Webb's Gunn Zoo series.
