    Story
    "NOT AS GOOD"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I won't recommend this to a friend. I feel that this story was misrepresented in what it had to offer. There was no secret behind the scenes of book one, therefore, this book does not provide any new information.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jana DeLeon? Why or why not?

    Absolutely, in fact I hope to get to read all the books in the series. I just don't feel that this book was needed.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't spend a credit for this book and wish I had not. But live and learn.

    Story
    "Kinda neat after having read the first two..."

    One of my favorite narrators, first of all. Ms. Parker is amazing with her range of voices for her characters (female and make) and really enhances the audiobook experience!
    This story was short & cute, but didn't really add much to the overall storyline. I've read & enjoyed the first two books in this series so far & it was kinda cool hearing Helena's perspective on events that have occurred, but I really got nothing substantial out of doing so. Meh. Still cute & a well written series overall :)
    Thank you for stopping by!
    Cheers,
    Lisa (@NurseLisainOhio)

    "why did he do it"

    I enjoyed the story and the characters but it never explained why it was done?

    Story
    "Thanks for a recap of the whole first book. Not."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If I could have learned something truly new about the story. It's the same story told from Helena's point of view. Redundant.


    Has The Helena Diaries - Trouble in Mudbug turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. The first book was a light and fun read. But nothing deep enough to expect a companion book.


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

    No.


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

    I was hoping to learn new stuff about the story and was disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    Going to ask for my money back on this one.

    Story
    "A hauntingly good read of a ghostly diary."
    Would you listen to The Helena Diaries - Trouble in Mudbug again? Why?

    Yes, as it gave some details that hadn't been revealed before. A second listen would help with future parts of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    An enjoyable humorous series.

    "Disappointing story!"

    No. A silly plot & lack of character development resulted in a tedious read. Narrator's voice was grating & southern accent exaggerated. Memorable moment- none.

    Story
    "Don't use a credit."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you listen to Trouble in Mudbug you have the whole story and this is just repeating the story.


    What could Jana DeLeon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The narrator is fine and enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    N/A


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Helena Diaries - Trouble in Mudbug?

    The whole book or story.

    Yes

    This is a repeat of what is in the first book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Johanna Parker’s performances?

    Yes
