Enjoyed this story and seeing a strong female character; but the narrator speaks so slowly and softly that the audible version will put you to sleep within 5 minutes.

A Good Story

I enjoyed this story but intensely disliked the reading. The reader, for me, was too mannered, had difficulty in reading a male voice and had very unusual pronunciation on occasions which distracted me.

The pace picked up towards the end and I am glad that I was able to finish it. I have read some short stories by Sabrina Flynn and find her to be an accomplished written whose ability to twist and turn a story up with the best.

I recommend this story but alas not the narrator.

Why?

Ok so I really enjoyed the book but why was the audiobook narrated by a female? It just sounded a bit contrived. All the main characters in the book except Mrs Kingston (who was abducted) were males. Overall good book though once I got past the husky female voice pretending to be a male.
