This was not as great as I thought it would be. The narration was terrible and did not fit the characters in the book.

Nick and her cousin Helena grew up in a world of sun bleached boat docks, tennis whites, and midnight gin parties at Tiger House, the family home on Martha's Vineyard. In the wake of the Second World War, the two women are on the cusp of starting their "real lives": Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage to the charismatic Avery Lewis, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own husband, Hughes Derringer, about to return from the war. The world seems rife with possibility, but the gilt soon begins to crack.

What made the experience of listening to Tigers in Red Weather the most enjoyable?

The narrator was captivating! It made the book. I don't know that I would have enjoyed reading the book as much as I did listening.

What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

Her voices for each character set each apart and gave them a clear idea in my mind of how they would look.

Who was the most memorable character of Tigers in Red Weather and why?

Definitely Nick.
