Publisher's Summary

Riches to rags.... Chaos has never been so supreme.... Now, a suspect herself.... No calm in sight....

Being a suspect in the murder of her ex-lawyer is not the fun Doreen thought it would be. And, of course, she’s been ordered to stay away from the case, but she can’t help being interested. So, she enlists Mack’s brother, Nick - her new lawyer - to help.

Mack’s first priority is to clear Doreen as a suspect. No one in their right mind would seriously believe she’d done the deed, of course. But the fact is, she had both motive and opportunity, so clearing her of suspicion isn’t the walk in the park that Mack would like it to be. Especially not when she insists on sticking her nose into his case, where it doesn’t belong.

And just when Doreen is certain things can’t get any worse, answering her doorbell shows her that this nightmare has just started. Who just walked into her life? None other than her soon-to-be ex-husband Mathew.

Corrected Chapter Sequence

Bought the audiobook the first day it was released because I love the series but all the chapters were grossly out of sequence (reason for low rating by other reviewers). Returned the audiobook and notified Audible and the author's fan site of the problem. It took a couple months but the publisher sent a corrected version to Audible and everything seems to be in order. I have already listened to the eBook so I know the story and writing are good. Looking forward to hearing it performed by a professional narrator instead of a computer generated voice.

Skipping Chapters

The story was good enough but the chapters were completely out of order. Confused as to what was going on considering the others books were in correct order.

Jumbled mess

The chapters are all out of order. The story is interrupted multiple times by rewinding of the audio. Overall, I enjoy the plot, the narration and the characters, but I had to work hard to follow the story because the audio files jump multiple chapters forward and then back. Very poorly done. They should be embarrassed to take money for it.

CHAPTERS IN BOOK OUT OF ORDER - AGAIN!!!

THE LAST TWO BOOKS IN THIS WONDERFUL SERIES HAS ONCE AGAIN BEEN SPOILED FOR ME BECAUSE OF THE POOR QUALITY MANAGEMENT BY AUDIBLE ITSELF. NARRATION IS A HOT MESS WITH STUMBLED AND REPEATED PHRASES (WHO DIRECTED THIS?) CHAPTERS OUT OF ORDER AND ALL OVER THE PLACE. DALE MAYER HAS WRITTEN ANOTHER WONDERFUL STORY AND AUDIBLE SCREWED IT UP!

errors

There were several slight clicks then a grammatically correct version of a previous phrase was inserted. As in the last book there were duplicate events in illogical sequence. what is happening?

I'm sure the story was probably fine, but the playback was completely out of order with all sorts playback errors and weird clicks.

Serious Narrator issues

I don't like the male voices used by this narrator, very gruff amd Mac often sounds angry, and again she makes Nan sound angry instead of a little irritable sometimes. It makes the relationships wrong. Less loving, less friendly. But even worse, in Chapter 11 in particular the narrator kept flicking off and off the mike and repeating phrases. She'd already done it a few times before but there is a long section where it is over and over again. This ruined the flow of the story. Why wasn't this edited out?

Out of sequence...again

Since a new narrator came on board for Lifeless in the Lillies, both that & this book have chapters out of order.
This book's recording is all over the place, with clicks where narrator has corrected errors.
Have posted on Dale Mayer's Facebook page also as this is ruining an enjoyable series.
I'm paying for these recordings & expect them to be perfect... are they not checked?

Disappointing audio ruined a quite interesting story

Very unhappy with the quality of the audio edits. Chapters were all over the place, not in order. There were obvious places where the narrator had corrected herself, and these errors were also left in. This is the second book in a row in the series that this has happened to. Not happy I wasted credits. Ruined the story. If I could I’d give 0 stars.
