Great story, great characters, great narrator. Another great entry in a fantastic series. The subtle Southern humor is a delight

Love, love, love this series!

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder Makes Waves to be better than the print version?

Both are great, but I mostly listen to books while I am busy with other things.

What did you like best about this story?

Everything.

What does Ruth Ann Phimister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She has just the RIGHT voices to pull this off. She is great!

Love this series!

Anne always injects humor and sisterly love in her plots. You feel like you've been to the beach with the sisters.

An adventure!

It had all my favorite things. It was a girl trip with romance, true love, science, and a mystery.

Always entertaining!

Would you listen to Murder Makes Waves again? Why?

Murder Makes Waves is light and funny so listening to it again would be fun.

What other book might you compare Murder Makes Waves to and why?

I like all of the books in this series. We listen to them when driving on long trips. They are fun and do not take your full attention.

Which character – as performed by Ruth Ann Phimister – was your favorite?

We love both sisters. Their interactions and comments are great.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There is always a great twist in these books.

Any additional comments?

We will keep buying them until we finish the series.

Love the entire series!! Paperback & Audio!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love these books. I own (still own), have read & enjoyed the entire series of paperbacks several years ago. Hadn't read them in a long time so I purchased all the audio editions that were available (there are one or two missing). <br/><br/>I found I loved the audio editions even more because Ruth Ann Phimister brings life to these southern ladies in a way that makes me want to listen to her over and over again. I don't know how she does all those voices but she does a wonderful job at it. They are entertainment not documentaries so yes, they are light but so what! I still love them. Almost makes me want to move to Alabama even though I love my Pacific Northwest so very much. <br/><br/>When I listen to these books I feel like I'm there, miles away from my physical body. <br/>I highly recommend them if you want to sink into a book and feel like you're there in a nice cozy place with great people. I couldn't possibly say enough great things about the books and the narrator. I was very please.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked all the great things in between the action i.e. murder(s). The home life, family interactions (the sometimes impossible sister relationship) and even the pets provide humor, realism and believability to the characters. This goes for all the books in the series. I do like some better than others but there isn't one that I don't like.

What does Ruth Ann Phimister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Having read the books and now years later listening to Ruth Ann Phimister I'd have to say she brought the characters more to life for me. I especially love her voice for Patricia Anne, soft, gentle, very southern but also formidable when she needs to be. I'd be curious to know if she's really southern because of her great accents in these books or if she just does a great southern accent.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A 'feel good' murder mystery.

Any additional comments?

I read some very bad reviews about these books and I don't know what the people were expecting. Maybe because I read them before listening to them (albeit years apart) I already knew what I was getting into. I think the books are exactly what they are billed as and if it's not someone's particular 'cup of tea' I don't think that's a reflection on the book but on the taste of the person writing the review.<br/><br/>I enjoyed every minute of listening to these books.

Love it

Murder makes waves is probably my favorite book by Ann George yet! I recognize so many places from Destin that she talks about and have such a visual of the scenery

Just fun ❣️

I know this series isn't everyone's taste but to me they are just fun, especially audibles. Even when I read it, it's this voice I hear. Thanks for having the series available!
