Publisher's Summary

Summer is a hectic time of the year for Annie Darling. Sun and scorching temperatures never fail to bring swarms of tourists to her mystery bookstore, Death on Demand. But Annie still finds time to enjoy herself. The Broward's Rock Fourth of July dance is just around the corner, and the island is buzzing with excitement - Shell Hurst included.

Shell is the kind of woman wives hate - and most of them wish she would just disappear. But when she does, Annie can't help but feel like someone should be looking for Shell. The residents of Broward's Rock grow uneasy when a second islander mysteriously disappears. Annie and her husband, Max, soon find themselves following a twisted trail marked by blackmail, betrayal, and adultery.

Terrible reader!

What would have made Dead, White, and Blue better?

While I can understand that a reader might have to change it seems that someone who understands how the previous books were read could be chosen. The strange pitch changes and the peculiar tones used by this reader are taking away from the listening experience. I am only into the fist chapters and it seems the story line will be as entertaining as usual for this series but I can only listen in short segments since this readers voice is grating. Poor choice!

Disappointed

Horrible narrator ruined an otherwise lovely story. I couldn't finish listening to the book because of her. No match for Kate Reading!

Don't let new narrator dissuade you from listening!

I almost skipped this book in the series based on some of the reviews concerning the change in narrator. Glad I didn't! Johanna Parker was an excellent substitution for Kate Reading.

book I think was well thought out.

but the reader, I am not sure why but it just didn't sound right. maybe accent, or she just wasnt into the book. It could also be after 22 books by Kate Reading it just didn't seem right.

Different Reader

Would you try another book from Carolyn Hart and/or Johanna Parker?

Well I have all the books that are on audio, so yes to the next audio version, but don't like when the reader changes. It throws every thing off. I actually couldn't tell the difference between the characters.

What three words best describe Johanna Parker’s voice?

Smooth, but non-discript

Did Dead, White, and Blue inspire you to do anything?

No

Why isn't Kate Reading narrating the story?

Would you be willing to try another one of Johanna Parker’s performances?

She does a fine job but Kate Reading is the narrator for all the other 24 books. I'm used to her voices for all the characters! I wish they would redo this book with Kate Reading!!!

Still listen after several months

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed the previous books in this series. This one is a bit difficult to get through. I am a bit bored with it. I have had it for several months and have started and completed other ebooks during this time.
