Basically the whole story of the first book

This is the first book told in Helena side of the story. So it is not very interesting it is not anything new

Thanks for a recap of the whole first book. Not.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If I could have learned something truly new about the story. It's the same story told from Helena's point of view. Redundant.

Has The Helena Diaries - Trouble in Mudbug turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. The first book was a light and fun read. But nothing deep enough to expect a companion book.

Have you listened to any of Johanna Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I was hoping to learn new stuff about the story and was disappointed.

Any additional comments?

Going to ask for my money back on this one.

it explained a lot

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

it was good mainly because I love to listen to johanna parker

If you’ve listened to books by Jana DeLeon before, how does this one compare?

it was kind of the same book just from a different persons eyes

Do you think The Helena Diaries - Trouble in Mudbug needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

sure there cute

NOT AS GOOD

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I won't recommend this to a friend. I feel that this story was misrepresented in what it had to offer. There was no secret behind the scenes of book one, therefore, this book does not provide any new information.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jana DeLeon? Why or why not?

Absolutely, in fact I hope to get to read all the books in the series. I just don't feel that this book was needed.

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't spend a credit for this book and wish I had not. But live and learn.

Kinda neat after having read the first two...

One of my favorite narrators, first of all. Ms. Parker is amazing with her range of voices for her characters (female and make) and really enhances the audiobook experience!
This story was short & cute, but didn't really add much to the overall storyline. I've read & enjoyed the first two books in this series so far & it was kinda cool hearing Helena's perspective on events that have occurred, but I really got nothing substantial out of doing so. Meh. Still cute & a well written series overall :)
Thank you for stopping by!
Cheers,

Lots of Spoilers!

As suggested in summary, do not listen to this before "Trouble in Mudbog" book.
Way too many spoilers in this. I enjoyed it.
