    "Honestly ... Unbelievable!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Books 1 and 2 are fun and quirky.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am going to try to listen to book 3


    What does Caroline Schaffer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reader is good! Very happy sounding.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I really enjoyed book 1 and 2. Hopefully, book 3 is a little off.


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to try book 4. Just to make sure ....

    Story
    "Series starting to decline"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would maybe recommend it if a friend were looking for light reading and didn't mind the soap opera drama that the main character is constantly turning her life into (not to mention that this particular installment actually revolves around the set of a primetime soap opera). I enjoyed the first book, but as i keep reading further in the series, Maddie's little moments, crazy ideas, and melodramatic reactions to things, and continual misunderstanding of her love interest Ramirez, have been driving me more and more nuts, so I'm not sure how much more I can take. I may try book 4 before i lose patience with her.Maddie and her cast of friends are, if nothing else, certainly a delightful little escape from the usual mystery novel, which are often more dark and procedural.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Shaffer – was your favorite?

    One of the craziest characters I've come across in any series is Mrs. Rosenblat, a ridiculously-dressed friend of Maddie's mother, who says she communicates with the other world through a spirit guide, and is always warning Maddie about the color of her aura. She is very well performed, and always makes me laugh. Shaffer's voicing makes her really come to life as a character.


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

    Because I tend to do most of my listening on my way to and from work (combination hoofing it and bus), I usually don't get in more than an hour or two of a book a day. But the style of this series is a really easy listen, and often fast-paced. The first book kept me hooked for as long as I could, to the point of continuing to listen while at work, and I finished it in only 2 days. This one took me a couple more days, but it could easily be a one or two day listen over a weekend to entertain during chores and such.

    "Entertaining, but not outstanding"

    Continuing the series, I was entertained, sometimes amused, but not lol moments. I'll probably listen to another in the series. The main character is amusing. The reader is ok.

    "Fun! You will giggle and snort!"

    Predictable? Yep. Still a very enjoyable read. I am buying the rest of the series.

    "No betterno worse"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Third book in series. They are all predictable, and not too original. But they are entertaining, in a familiar sort of way


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gemma Halliday? Why or why not?

    Yeah, when I don't have any new Evanovichs' to read


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Caroline Shaffer?

    Maybe


    Could you see Undercover in High Heels being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, not at all

    Story
    "Not the best, but still entertaining."

    I must say that this isn't the best installment in this series.. but, it was still entertaining.

    There was one part that was rather selfish.. the way she treats her family. She takes advantage of them.. calls them to do her favors, but then laments that she has no one to turn to.. rather a turn off for me.

    But, all in all, even with these very rough parts, the mystery was good. It is just the heroine that I'm beginning to dislike..

    The narrator is great..

    I'm unsure as to whether I'd recommend this installment or not. I'm going to try another one, just to make sure that this book isn't the one bad apple....

    I love audibles books. I drive alot almost everyday so I listen to books on my way! I really like romantic suspense mysteries, but hate to read stories that constantly have the word God like its just another word intead. Also in the romance department I really like the romance description kept to a minimum and leave a few thing to the imagination. I like books with a sense of humor too .

    "ENTERTAINING"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Undercover in High Heels to be better than the print version?

    HAVE NEVER READ THE PRINT VERSION BUT LOVE TO LISTEN AS I DRIVE.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked this book but I really didnt like the use of the word God as an exclaimation word constantly. And there was just a bit to much detail in love scene. I guess I might be a bit old fashioned. But I loved the humor in it. the whole series is fun.
