The reader was very good. She didn't over dramatize the voices which I really liked. I like to visualize the characters without the interference of the reader. The story was okay for chic lit. It made for a nice listen.
At first I wondered if I was going to listen to a dark drama like Wuthering Heights. But soon I was invested in the best scenario of drama, mystery & a complicated romance. What I liked about the story was the lack of predictability.
Paula Slade's narration of multiple voices were consistently true for each character. Her transitions were so smooth between narrator & voices that I felt I was listening to a full cast.
The only thing that I'm not sure was needed in the story was the number of thought bubbles before dialogue. it sometimes seemed unnecessary.
The ending was rewarding. All in all, bravo to author, Leigh Michaels and actress, Paula Slade.
