"Jance's sense of place remains strong, whether here in the beautifully rendered rural Arizona setting or in the rainy Seattle of her J.P. Beaumont mysteries." (Publishers Weekly)
I have now read several of the Joanna Brady series, and the author continues to evolve the character nicely. I especially enjoyed the two story-lines and how she wove them together. A good story, with excellent narration and a thoroughly believable working woman main character make this a great listen.
My husband and I truly like hearing about Joanna and her family, at home and at work. This was unavailable in the unabridged version. While we got the story, we missed the details.
I'm a 54 year old mail carrier. I listen to books around 6 hours a day. Listening to just about any fiction genre. Just starting to review.
There really isn't any book that can survive the cuts made by being abridged, and this is no exception. One whole storyline was left unresolved. Chopping up the story left me frustrated and feeling that I'm missing key points.
Bitch slap whoever decided that marketing only a abridged version. PLEASE
Much improved over the narration in the previous few books.
Probably not as the closest movie theater is 2 hours away. I save those trips for movies with big special effects. But I would rent or buy the DVD.
Abridgement = BAD If I want a abridged story I'll buy a Readers Digest.
