Good book, bad narration

I really do love this series. It just bothers me I have to listen to Ruth Ann Phimister. Between her constant lip wetting and failed accents, it's almost unbearable. And if your narration calls for singing, please only do it if you can actually sing!

Didn't care for narrator in this particular series

The narrator's voice is more suited to Dearest Dorothy, and the Southern Sisters mystery series as both have elderly main characters. She does a great job with them but her voice is much too weak and trembly for the character of young Callie Webber. I think Ruth had sinus issues because many times her sniffles could be heard which was distracting. This book also had many places where the audio skipped and I totally missed what was being said which also detracted from the book. But I still enjoyed the book as the storyline was great.

Mystery and clean language all rolled into one.

I love Mindy Starns Clark books.
Although I do like Ruth Ann Phimister as a narrator her voice is too old for the main characters of this book. For me it takes away from the story. The character seems much younger than Miss RuthAnn P. Portrays her.

Interesting, mystery, CLEAN.

It is so hard to find literature that is clean - no cursing, no sex, no spiritism, scorcery or magic - what a pleasant novel to read!!! I also love Ruth Ann Phimister's voice. Her tone, inflection and rhythm is delightful to listen to. It's ok that it is in a mature range. It didn't fit with the reference to being able to have "children in the future" conversation with her former mother in law. Other than that, this part could have been left completely out and still be a story about an older women falling in love with an older man while working as an investigator. I loved it and looking forward to more novels by Mindy and narration by Ruth Ann.
