Murder, She Wrote: Murder in Red audiobook cover art

Narrator is godawful

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 05-27-19

This narrator, by far, had to be the worst one thus far. I just started and I will not continue listening. You should have stuck with Beth Porter. Ugh. Disappointing. I will try to read the Kindle version since I've already bought the book.

This book would have been a decent story if the main character wasn't a desperate sex-crazed nymphomaniac. I was a little disheartened book was recommended by Audible as it is not a book I would ever chose to read. To much swearing and cheap sex scenes, which, I think is only used when the author lacks the ability to write anything of substance. The main character spent more time lusting over her friend's brother than actually finding her friend. Not a good character trait.

The narrator was thick with a southern accent which was like nails on a chalk board. I may try reading the kindle version and reinvent the character voices in my head.

There were so many things disappointing about this book but the biggest disapointment was that Abby wasn't killed by the murderer.

I can't believe people other reviewers like the main character. She was extremely unlikable in my opinion. It makes one wonder if the reviews are real or bots.

Miss Julia Takes the Wheel audiobook cover art

Oh Miss Julia

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-04-19

I discovered these books a little over 1 year ago and read the entire series within a month. They are clever, humorous, and smart. I appreciate that the plot normally involves a mystery that is believable and relatable. It's nice to know that murder isn't always needed for a good cozy mystery.

I love Miss Julia and Cynthia Darlow's narration of the beloved character so much that Ive become obsessed with finding books where the protagonist is a feisty geriatric slueth.

This latest installment, however, was one of my least favorites, but, still better than most of the other books I've read this year. I wish more of the townspeople had been featured in this book. They are so well developed and fun to read about.

Lastly, I felt like the ending was rushed and not well thought out. Everything was "sort of" wrapped up but felt the story was incomplete.

Dead and Breakfast audiobook cover art

Slightly disappointing

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-31-19

Some of the voices portrayed by the narrator were exasperating. It was times a bit over-theatrical. It wasn't the worst narration I've ever heard but it was definitely in the bottom half. If i had only read the book Im fairly certain that I would have thoroughly enjoyed the elderly and spry Liza. I didn't like the inflection the narrator used with the character.

When the reason for Melanie's resentment towards her ex-husband were revealed, it made me immediately dislike her. I don't like characters who hold grudges (for years!) and lack any personal growth.

The story itself was average. I won't be rushing to buy another book by this author but it did meet the standard formula for a cozy mystery. I would recommend this book if offered for free on Kindle, skip the audible version.

Narration was horroble

Reviewed: 03-28-19

The narrator pauses at the end of every word. I sped up the narration to 1.25x and it made it sound slightly better than text to speech. Annoying.

I absolutely LOVE this narrator. Best one out of all of them for the series.

Dense Danielle

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-23-19

I am so over how stupid Danielle's character is written. Every time she says "what do you mean", I wonder if Danielle is operating on limited brain cells.

I do enjoy the secondary characters, Lilly, Ian, Chris, Adam, Heather, the chief, and Joann however. Hopefully the author will consider writing a spin-off series.
