    "Very entertaining. I couldn't stop listening!"
    What did you love best about Two for the Dough?

    I have a long commute for work and audiobooks help pass the time. Two for the Dough made the time fly by. I actually hated getting to my destination because I wanted to keep listening to what happened next!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stephanie Plum is my favorite character. She tenacious, stubborn, sexy, and a world class klutz.


    Have you listened to any of C. J. Critt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    C.J. Critt gives a fabulous performance. You really feel and see the characters in your head. She is not just reading, it is a true performance. She has a great voice, full of expression. When she changes characters you know who the character is before she tells you by the inflection in her voice. Fantastic!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It is rare that a book is funny and suspenseful at the same time but that is what the Stephanie Plum novels are. The crimes are often dark and deadly but Janet Evanovich has the rare knack of setting them against a backdrop of hysterically funny personal lives. The end result has you cheering for Stephanie to triumph in both her personal and professional life!

    There is never enough time for great books! I love the ones that suck you in from the first minutes but I have also learned to love the ones that take a little longer to warm up to.

    "I wish I had a friend like Stephanie"
    What did you love best about Two for the Dough?

    This a very entertaining series. It's both easy to listen to and fun. I love the characters and how they interact with one another. Stephanie's family, especially Grandma Maser is a hoot.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I'm not sure this is an


    What aspect of C. J. Critt’s performance would you have changed?

    Some of the voices are hokey.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to books on my long commute to and from work. It makes the drive go by faster and I never dread the drive.

    "Still FUN!"
    Where does Two for the Dough rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Around the top. I liked One For the Money more, but the humor along with mystery keeps my attention as I catch myself laughing out loud - especially when Grandma gets involved. I busted out when Grandpa commented on wanting to be cremated. Too funny!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grandma

    "Plum to the rescue"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Two for the Dough to be better than the print version?

    Haven't seen the print version so I can't comment on this


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author makes the character of Stephanie likable, funny and a great story to listen to.


    What does C. J. Critt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    C. J., brought the characters to life, she was able to nail the voices and really made it more enjoyable, not something that I could have done myself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was a book I would have loved to listen to in one sitting, and certainly almost did, it took two!


    Any additional comments?

    A must listen to, get it and enjoy

    "New to me"

    Even though this series has been around for quite awhile, it's new to me. I love women detective series so I'm not sure why it took me so long to start reading about Stephanie Plum but I'm glad I did. Fun and fast moving. I liked C J Critt as the reader and look forward to the entire series.

    "Fun"

    These books are a little predictable, but they are quite fun. I've read 4 of them now and only stopped because the 5th isn't on Audible (at least not the unabridged version.) CJ Critt is a great narrator.
