Sorry but the accent for the American sounded robotic and really took me out of the story

In 1977, pregnant Genevieve Russell disappeared. Twenty years later, her remains are discovered and Timothy Gleason is charged with murder. But there is no sign of the unborn child. CeeCee Wilkes knows how Genevieve Russell died, because she was there. And she also knows what happened to the missing infant, because two decades ago she made the devastating choice to raise the baby as her own. Now Timothy Gleason is facing the death penalty, and she has another choice to make: tell the truth, and destroy her family, or let an innocent man die in order to protect a lifetime of lies....

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I really want to like this book but the narrater just killed it for me. She was just over the top and used weird accents/voices for characters.The story itself was actually pretty interesting with twists and secrets but probably best to just read this book than listen.
