"Like many of the best American women mystery writers, Nevada Barr, Sue Grafton, and Sara Paretsky, this author has created a smart and funny character worthy of serialization." (ForeWord)
I was delighted in finding this author and promptly bought all her books. I loved the atmosphere of her novels. Her characters are really well done and I feel that I'm missing friends when the books end.
I listened to the first in this series and liked it so much I eagerly searched out the second. I would actually give this about 3.5 stars as the narrator and mystery of who the bad guy/guys was were excellent, but this wasn't quite the gripping storyline that the first book had. Still worth the purchase tho and I hope Catherine Sampson continues this character in audiobooks. It makes my drive time zip by!
Like in the first one in this series (which you should definitely read first if you can), the mystery is not a great mystery, but you won't care. The characters are terrific. Kate Reading (I know it says Barbara Rosenblat above, but it's Kate Reading) is absolutely perfect in her narration. I could not stop listening, waiting to see what would happen -- then sorry when it was over. Can't wait for another one!
