Full of suspense!

I couldn't decide whether to dislike or pity the main character, which shows how talented the author is with character development. I understood the character's motivations and felt like I was inside her head ... but I'm not foolish enough to get in such a twisted mess! Very nice production and narrator. Highly recommended!

Quite the appropriate title!

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book! The main character evolves and during her evolution, the listener is able to identify with her, even when her behavior is unacceptable and against her core values. All of the characters have issues that are apparent to everyone but to those who matter most. The author does it again, bringing her characters to life. The narrator does a great job and the listener finds that she or he cannot put this audio book down after listening to just one chapter!

Very good listen

Would you consider the audio edition of In Sheep's Clothing to be better than the print version?

I've never heard a audio that's better than print. I'm a reader but choose audio due to the type of work I do doing the day. Once I'm home in the evening I read only.

What did you like best about this story?

I love that Trudy finally saw that Ann's life wasn't perfect. That everyone lives in a glass house at least once in their life.

Have you listened to any of Susan Spain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

My first listen by Susan Spain.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, indeed. I have read every Mary Monroe book and now I will listen to every Mary Monroe book.

Provocative!

Wow! I am a fan of Mary Monroe and she did not let me down with this one. Trudy is a true character of what happens when so many awful events befall your life and you do not know how to handle them. Wonderful read! I wanted to hear more!
