hurts my ears

Awful narrator. Listening to this book is like being in a room full of squeaking, squawking, angry teenagers...

Yikes!

I like the Avery Shaw mysteries... but oh my goodness, this narrator is tough to continue listening to! Her cadence is off and nearly every guy-voice is high pitched and nasal.

It doesn't help that SEVERAL places have repeats from unedited recordings. I suffered through them, but I don't look forward to getting Book 7 through Audible. I'll probably bite the bullet and get the ebook.

As for the story, Book 6 may be my favorite as far as Avery's character development is concerned. I've wanted to like her from the get-go, but it was difficult in some of the earlier books... there was no end to her anger and it was starting to grate. At least in the last book in this series we see her anger and feisty nature doing more than upsetting her mother and making random people want to do her bodily harm.

Looking forward to more mysteries and more character development in future books!

*SPOILER ALERT* I don't know what it is with the name Ariel (perhaps the author has an arch nemesis and is immortilizing her in several bad characters or maybe The Little Mermaid was traumatic...) but it seems to pop up somewhere in nearly every book... for different characters... I think Book 6 also breaks this mold, unless I just blocked it out. : )

The editing

There are a lot of repeats in this reading, whom ever edited it did not do a very good job. It a good thing the books themselves are so good.

Great story line, some editing problems

I love the characters Amanda M. Lee creates in her stories. The reason I didn’t give it higher for performance is because there are a lot of areas where the editing is done poorly and sometimes there are parts that are repeated multiple times.

My favorite series

Love the characters, the banter, the stories. Narrator does good male voices. Got to be hard to pull off without sounding ridiculous. At least I know my Avery voice is. I've said too much.

Lots of errors but Avery showing growth

In Books 1-3 there were a lot of mispronunciations. In books 4-6 there were still a few mispronunciations but the main problem was repeated phrases and sentences. I don't understand why these are not being caught before publication.

I was pleased to see some growth in Avery's character and hope this continues.

Needs to reedited

Audible needs to pull this audio book and re-edit it. Multiple editing mistakes and repeats.
But overall the story is great! Absolutely love it!

Hang in there!

These books are good. The narrator is terrible in this one! I almost gave up, but the story caught me. The narrator has gotten progressively better and now after I have listened to the sixth book, she is awesome! I really enjoy this series!

Did no one in editing notice this??

I liked the series but the repeated mispronounced words and audio studdering really annoyed me and distracted from the story.
