Meeting Bishop. This is my third time thru the series and I must say I still found myself smiling.
Probably the Sherlock and Savich FBI series by Catherine Coulter, but I confess I like Bishop and crew better.
She was annoying. She made Bishop sound like a lispy little girl. It was horrible.
I always do wanna listen to Bishop all the way thru .....
with a strong romantic element. I like it when an author uses individual character depth and development to show the reader their importance to the story. I think mysteries make that a little trickier and it was done well here. Believable dialog, situations, and conflicts. Decent tension and pacing throughout. Solid mystery. Satisfying ending. The narrator did a good job differentiating between characters. I loved her rendering of the sherif best. I could actually picture him when she read his lines. All these parts added up so well, I was surprised that the whole felt somewhat canned/formulaic (and this coming from someone who reads mostly romances).
It was a forgettable story, characters were under developed.
The ending was blah just like the rest of the book, again not good but not bad.
Anybody else, no range of voices, well not a good range, they all sounded to old.
I will have to go back and listen to other books in this series. This was actually less fluff than I expected, but I feel I am missing a lot of character development that probably happened before this installment.
The story here is good, but the revelations are far from earth-shattering. As the words flew by, I was much more interested in the people than the mystery, but it was good enough to warrant listening to another book in the series.
The narrator was entertaining and enjoyable
I would recommend this book for it's content and for the narration
I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I live in Denver Co
The story lost an awful lot by not having the right narrator. You could hear her breathing and swallowing and her voice was just droning.... I finished the book because the story was good by MY GOODNESS I couldn't wait to not have to hear her voice...
I wouldn't as I can never read, watch or listen to crime stories more then once. Once you know whodunit, that's it for me.
I don't usually read murder mysteries....maybe silence of the lambs?
No, I quite liked her style, but her voice was too old for the characters she is reading, particularly the main female character. This made the whole thing a little off.
This was quite a nail biter. Had to keep listening to see what happened.
Once you get over the old sounding narrator, this is a great story, perfect listen while painting the house.
Nothing short of girly twaddle, read by a narrator straight from the cheese factory!
I kept listening as I was short of a decent book to listen to and my favorite authors just can't write fast enough to keep me happy; however, I could barely make it to the last sappy sentence. That's the first and last Kay Hooper book I'm going to listen to and also the last one read by that narrator.
If you like stories about psychics or paranormal stuff, you would probably like this. I had picked up a book by Kay Hooper one summer as a beach read. While I likes it, I felt like I was missing too much back story, so I decided to start with the first novel, Stealing Shadows. While the first novel in a series, it is a stand-alone story that does not leave the reader / listener thinking that a sequel is required to finish the story. I liked that.
Nothing really comes to mind.
For me, the narrator definitely distracted from the book. While she did a good job with the voices, the microphone was too close to her mouth so I could hear her breath intakes and lips smacking. Very annoying.
My english does not allow me to write a complicated review but I can tell you that although I found the book a bit too long, it is a good story and I enjoyed listening. Very well narrated as well. So it is worth spending time with.
