"A heroine readers will want to see more of". (Publishers Weekly)
I've listened to other books (Prior Bad Acts and Kill the Messenger) by this author and loved them! I was so excited when I saw another book by Tami Hoag. I've tried to listen to this book quite a few times, but I just can't finish it. The narrator, Beth McDonald, annoys me so much! I find her Russian accents quite ridiculous. Her attempts at changing her voice to match the different characters disrupts the flow of the story. I'll probably pick up a copy of this book at the bookstore, but I simply can't listen to it.
As much as I enjoy Hoags novels this one fell flat because of the narration. The narrators attempt at the "Russian" accents was nothing short of horrible and ruined the listening experience. I even gave some thought to quiting the book but hung in there for the duration. The narration makes all the difference in the world.......you might consider buying the book instead of downloading it. As for the novel itself it would have scored much higher with a different narrator.
This was a disappointing read. The narrator used very fake accents. It was predictable and just not an enjoyable book to listen to.
If you liked Dark Horse then you will like this one too. All the main characters from Dark Horse are back plus a few new ones. Once again Beth McDonald does an impeccable job of bringing each character to life. A good "who-done-it" read. I've gotten several of Ms. Hoags books and have never been disappointed.
I got so annoyed at the narrator that I only got halfway through the book and decided I couldn't listen anymore. This narrator comes off as a grouchy, disgusted woman who never once had a positive expeience in her life. Her lovelife is in the toilet and I can see why. I think this story could have been great with another narrator. I'll never know.
I almost didn't buy this after reading some of the reviews. I thought maybe they got a new reader for this book. Glad they stayed with the original lady. She's great. Loved the storyline!!
