As a fan of Charlaine Harris This was one series I haven't updated. I am glad I had a chance to read more. I like that Lily has become more open and at the same time finding herself a bit lost because of that. The mystery was interesting, too. Nice fast easy listening!
Likes: Cozy mysteries, esp w/cats, books on workings of the brain/autism, not-too-dark fantasy. Dislikes: Animal cruelty, torture scenes.
I continue to enjoy the books in this series. This one is a somewhat over the top story and does have people behaving in what might not be the most believable ways. That didn't bother me, though it might bother some people who have definite rules about a mystery. I am more interested in the characters than the mystery usually. However, if you can let go of the disbelief it is an interesting mystery to follow. On a side note, it's funny how old a book feels when people are using VCRs and such. I criticized the motive in a previous Lily Bard Mystery but that was not an issue here. I felt a little sad knowing I have only one more Lily Bard book to go. I meant to mention in previous reviews that Harris spends a lot of time discussing clothes, make up, relationships, etc. A male reader's head would probably explode the 100th time we heard the description of someone's navy belt matching their navy leather pumps, or that they shaved their legs or put cream on their cuticles and if anything this installment is even more like that. Still, I enjoyed both Lily and teh mystery in this one.
I LOVE Audible
Great 'simple' listen. Nothing too complicated, a great story which kept me interested until the end. I did not expect the ending, which is typical of Charlane Harris, she is a great story teller.
I just finished this and I'm about to read book five. Lily Bard is a troubled woman with a past and PTSS. She is strong and tries very hard to be totally independent. I like this character and Charlaine Harris knows how to paint dark characters. I love the Sookie Stackhouse series, but I really enjoy this as well because it is so different.
The narrator does a good job and "fits" how I see the voice of Lily.
Lily...although I felt bad for poor Deedra in this one.
No. It was a good read to listen to while commuting. I thought Harris might have taken the "Deedra was a sl**" theme a little far, but overall the book was OK.
