    "Disappointing"

    I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this story didn't add anything to the series. I'd pass on this one, wish I had

    "Poor Narration"

    The new narrator for the wonderful Deadwood series is a major disappointment. She sounds as if she is reading from a script and is not nearly so good as original narrator, Caroline Shaffer. Shaffer made you feel as if you were actually with her and listening to actual conversations. I do not intend to purchase any more Deadwood series books that have such inferior story-tellers.

    "Don't bother "

    This was not worth buying. There was a very short story about Violet's diary and a short "interview "of violet by the author. The first was cute, the second not so much. Neither gave me new information about Violet or her world. There was also an unrelated fluff story that had no purpose being in this set and wasn't good. I love the series but I felt the author should have offered this audiobook free for fans of the series - much as other series writers have done with shorter stories. Actually, those free short stories have drawn me into several series - such as the also humorous Chronicles of St Mary's. Sadly, selling this kind of meager fare does not leave me with a good taste about the author or publisher. U

    Story
    "Should Be Free. Short-short + writing exercise"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It provides some info that pertains to the series, so yes. But only if it is free, or maybe 99 cents. I wouldn't recommend paying for it. Bonus material like the author's interview with her main character is usually offered at the end of a full length book. You know, as a bonus. Using it as filler to make up for the shortness of the story is kind of a d*** move.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ann Charles again?

    Yes, I like the series and the author, Ann Charles. I won't buy the .5 short stories that Audible is offering for this series again. Fool me once, blah, blah, blah.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Why not use the usual series narrator? I think that would have been better. Lisa Larsen did a good job, but why not use Caroline Shaffer? It makes Seeing Trouble feel even less like a short story and more like a fragment or an out-take.

    Story
    "Ghosts, Romance and a few Scares"
    If you could sum up Seeing Trouble in three words, what would they be?

    I would recommend this audio series, because it's funny, romantic and can be a bit scary. If you like Charlaine Harris's series True Blood, you'll like this author. Granted, this series doesn't have Vampires and Wolves, but they can be quite graphic/gory, suspenseful, thrilling and as I said, scary.

    Story
    "Disappointing"

    I've listen to the first two books in the series and have enjoyed them. I purchased this thinking it would have some value but it is rehashed backstory for the most part. It would have been appropriate to add as an additional short at the end of the second book. Unfortunately, the backstory didn't provide any insight to the main character, instead offering only casual observation. This was not added value for the series and I don't encourage purchase as it will not further engage a reader.
