Wonderful story and excellent narration!

I enjoyed the narration of Shadow on the Water immensely. Elizabeth Cadell’s daughter, Janet Reynolds does a wonderful job with the voices. She was the one who typed up her mother’s manuscripts from the 1950s to the 1980s, thus giving her an in depth knowledge of the book. I laughed at the clever quotes:
“All a woman really needs is a man. A man to support her, to steady her, to restrain her...” and - “He was strong on brains and death on women... he doesn’t know they’re there. That kills them!”
Theres’s a clever mystery and a really good and unexpected romance! All together, another delightful story by Elizabeth Cadell. And a big thank you to Janet Reynolds for the splendid narration!

Well done.

This is one of my favorite books by Elizabeth Cadell. Janet Cadell Reynolds is her daughter. She is a wonderful narrator. I loved her performance.

What a treat!

This was such a fun mystery and I enjoyed every minute of it. This was my second Elizabeth Cadell book and I really want more. She is a very interesting writer and the stories are a breath of fresh air. Sometimes I read heavier books and sometimes I just want entertainment that leaves me smiling, this fit the bill.

Delightful narrator!

The narrator’s voice was perfectly suited to this story. I hope we will hear more from her in future.
