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. : )

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.

Continues to be funny and full of crap

This book contains books 4 – 6. The hilarious adventures of Avery Shaw continues. She exasperates everyone with her crazy immature antics. Her aggressiveness to get the stories first, from the print media reporters is only slightly less murderous as she is toward television media reporters.

She takes malicious glee keeping conflict with her cousin, Derrick’s girlfriend and her former boyfriend, Jake Farwell former girlfriend who are both television news anchors.

Elliot, her boyfriend is driven mad with her reckless exploits which puts her in constant danger. What Elliot puts up for sex is just hysterical. Every Friday takes glee to raise her mother’s blood pressure with her tee shirts with the sexual connotations.
If you like the earlier books, you will surely enjoy these.

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.

Lots of Avery!!!

This boxed set was a joy to listen to! Expect a deeper appreciation of the characters and the impending trouble that Avery always gets herself into!

Angel Clark made what was already great into something even better!
