Not really, I'm not interested in abridged books. I thought I was purchasing an unabridged addition.
The book was excellent. The audio book left out interesting and to me important detail.
The pace was good, just wanted more detail.
That would be good. I do not know.
This book was funny, romantic and I love Janet Evanovich's writing.
It was a little strange hearing Lorelei King's voice in an historical, since she usually does all of Janeit Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books, but it was still good.
