Would you consider the audio edition of One O'Clock Hustle to be better than the print version?

Yes

Who was your favorite character and why?

Richie

Which character – as performed by Kristi Burns – was your favorite?

Rebecca

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, I laughed a couple of times!

Any additional comments?

The thing I love about cozy mysteries is you just take it all in stride without too much examination. I enjoyed the story and the forbidden romance aspect...good girl attracted to bad boy...and I did like the ending. However, if I look too closely at the plot, there is no way a homicide detective would do this!!! At least be a little more believable.

I never read this author's works previously, the title was intriguing, so I asked to read it for review. I love audio books, but sometimes I doze off, etc...which I did...but this was good enough to make me back up and listen to it all. I was intrigued by the subject matter (Jewish supernatural ideas) which I don't see too often. The performance was very well done...especially since a woman narrator had to do male voices, and did them quite well. I know I will want to read more with these characters...it is obvious there is a lot going on with them and there were just enough hints to make me curious. All around, a great read/listen.
