Middle of the pack.
I love all the characters in this series. :)
She tried to make each character distinctive, but erred on the side of making them caricature: the main character Dittany was performed as being so timid that every one of her sentences is a question; other characters had such exaggerated accents to the point of seeming prejudiced and insulting. This is one of my favorite series but I would be embarrassed to recommend this audiobook to a friend. Lori may think she is Jim Dale, but she isn't.
Murder can be fun!
I really appreciate Charlotte MacLeod's books being released on audiobook (as well as Kindle) but I wish they had invested a little more and got a professional narrator.
