    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "More of a Mystery than a Romance"

    Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors, I love her romances because they mix her amazing ability to create mystery with sexual relationships. Fat Tuesday is not what I would call a romance. There is one real love scene and it is at the end of the book. However, the mystery is worthy of the Sandra Brown name. It does get a little slow from the middle to the last 3/4 of the book but the ending is filled with twists and turns. I enjoyed listening to the story but, I don't think it will be one that I listen to multiple times such as her books Envy or Breath of Scandal.

    "Great book - love the Unabridged version!"

    Thanks for getting the unabridged version. It is SO much better than the abridged. Mr. Garrett was the perfect narrator.

    "not so good"

    I very much enjoyed Sandra Brown's "Envy". It seems like she has written quite a few books and received many good reviews so I figured I would Give "Fat Tuesday" a try. It is way over dramatized, predictable and the language is weird. I think this book is suppose to be a steamy/thriller mystery but with sentences like "men that are ravenous don't eat neatly" it is far from it. Seriously I can not imagine anyone talking like that. To me the book was so bad that I thought it was kind of funny. I ended up listening to it in 2X the speed and I think it would be better if I could have listened to it in speed 3 or 4. I did finish the book on the other reviewers recommendation but all in all not so good and it's a definite thumbs down from me

    "Thrilling Read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fat Tuesday to be better than the print version?

    The voices of the characters help you create an image of them, better than reading alone would.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fat Tuesday?

    The most memorable was the ending, it had a twist I had not seen comming, it scared me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when to escape he had to punch his friend in the bait shop, it was very funny.


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

    The book mad me laugh a lot, I did not cry, but I did get very upset and nervous when I wasn't sure what was going to happen.

    "A Real Page Turner-Great Story& Narration-Solid SB"
    Where does Fat Tuesday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top in this genre. Fantastic!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just when you think you have it figured it out-there is a twist that knocks the book into another direction. They come fast and furious near the end-to a fantastic ending!

    Which scene was your favorite?


    When Burke's old, Cajun pal Dread (sorry if the name is misspelled-audio book!) 'takes care' of the two thug sent by Pinky. It was pretty clever, but gory.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The clever ways that Burke and his pals dealt with the Pinky and his pals.


    Any additional comments?

    Fun, clever book...a bit of romance, lots of action - very enjoyable and plausible (the scenarios COULD have unfolded as written)!

    Note: Parts were a bit graphic (in the gory sense.)

    "Just OK"

    An abridged version of this would be terrific. I found myself thinking "get on with it" or "who cares" so often in this book that it really dulled the enjoyment of it.

    "Could not stop listening"
    Where does Fat Tuesday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    at the top. I was hooked from the beginning


    What other book might you compare Fat Tuesday to and why?

    I really can't compare it to anything. It's a great book, the story gets you from the beginning and keep you interested. The ending is something you don't see coming ang doesn't let you down.


    Have you listened to any of Jack Garrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first I've heard of his. He nailed every accent.

    "Predictable popcorn"

    I hated myself for enjoying this but if you want a lightweight read that does not require a lot of your attention while you shop or clean on the weekends, then this book is for you. The characters are cut-out but the plot moves rapidly if not somewhat improbably. And you learn a little about life in the Louisiana swamps.
