Julia Gibson was great at setting the mood and bringing the characters to life. I fear I may not listen to another Susan Wittig Albert book, as I found this not as engaging as the others. I've listened to 3 or 4 in the past and found them light, but charming in their way. I became fond of the recurring characters and welcomed the new ones. But, perhaps for me that charm wears thin after a few books. Or something was missing in this one and I can't put my finger on what it was. The best parts were the drama of housesitting a Rottweiler and descriptions of yucca plants, which I don't consider a recommendation.
Other books in the series that I enjoyed more: Dead Man's Bones, Mourning Gloria, Cat's Claw, Wormwood
