Well read, good portrayal of individual characters.
This is the 2nd book in the Hope Beach "series" and brings in Libby from the first book. This one is as good a mystery as the first one!
Reading is my passion...but life as a working single mom, listening to books better fits my busy schedule! LOVE Audible!
Another great book in Colleen's long standing line! Really enjoyed the story and looking forward to her next one!
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
3 1/2 stars A pretty good murder mystery at a great price but..
This is a hard book to review because, it starts off like a mid-line listen in the first couple of pages and then starts to get intriguing. It has small corny parts and then falls back into really good writing. The same with the narrator, over the top where it takes away from the story and then she gets very Good. I may have enjoyed reading this more because it did not lag. Wasn't a waste of time and was happy to go back to it, but, if the corny parts were lost and the narrator had stayed out of the sing song, over the top extravagance it would have been Great. Did not fall in love with any characters but was a very Good, who done it, with an imaginative base story.
