Very enjoyable!

The weaving of its story and its characters; the characters well defined by the narrator; the flow. All resulted in a very enjoyable listen! Both author and narrator are exceptional!

Restarted 3 times

I just can't follow this narrator. I've liked the series so far but I'll have to skip this one.

Love this series

This is an old fashioned village mystery with some slight character development of the main characters. The focus, though, is the mystery and who done it.

good storyline

I have enjoyed the series and this book was also engaging. However, I have had a difficult time sticking with the books since Judith Boyd is no longer narrating. Although I enjoy the storyline and the characters , it is very difficult to complete the book since the narration makes it very difficult to identify the characters who are speaking. I get annoyed-but I do get to the ending. I do hope Judith Boyd comes back at some point in this series to do the narration again.

Twice as long As it Should have Been

Too many additions to the primary plot that ended up being superfluous rather than interesting.

Returned it early even though free

The action is started by the protagonist acting like an idiot with little rational motive so there’s no sympathy/empathy/ or even caring what happens to her.

The other characters can’t save the book either

Why change narrators?

The first books in the series were narrated by Judith Boyd. Changing was a mistake. The way this narrator performed the voice of Harriet was so grating that I stopped listening half the way through -I just couldn’t take it anymore.
