Publisher's Summary

Cheryl Bradshaw's library of the Sloane Monroe Series, Books 1-3 (three complete novels), now as compelling audiobooks!

Enter the world of Sloane Monroe in Black Diamond Death...

On the slopes of Park City, Utah's newest ski resort, a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. But what if she was murdered? Although skeptical, PI Sloane Monroe takes the case and learns not everyone is who they seem, and some will go to any lengths to protect their identity.

In Sinnerman, PI Sloane Monroe has solved every case that's come across her desk with the exception of one - the brutal murder of her sister Gabrielle. Three years have passed without a trace of the serial killer until today, when a young woman's body is discovered on a patch of dirt in front of the local supermarket. Will Sloane exact her revenge before Sinnerman slays his next victim, or will she be too late?

Quite a surprise

Sloan Monroe books were always showing up as "recommended for you" I kept passing them by believing I wouldn't enjoy them. Boy was I wrong. I used a credit to buy this book figuring worse case, I'd buy three books for the price of one. I enjoyed the books so much, I purchased the next one which has books 4-5. There were twists and turns, not edge of your seat but wanting to hear what happens. The narration was good, it took a while for me to get into the narration. I recommend this book/series to fans of cozy mysteries.

Ug. Awful.

What disappointed you about Sloane Monroe Series Boxed Set, Books 1-3?

The narrator was impossible to take seriously and the plot was condescending.

Would you ever listen to anything by Cheryl Bradshaw again?

No.

How could the performance have been better?

A different narrator. But the plot and characters were also obvious and stereotypic.

What character would you cut from Sloane Monroe Series Boxed Set, Books 1-3?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

There was nothing good about this book. I listen to a ton of mysteries on Audible and this was by far the worst. The author treats the reader as if they are stupid. It wasn't just poorly written, it was insulting. Combined with terrible narration, this is a total waste of money.

I wouldn't have liked Sloan, man or woman

I had to speed up the narration to make it more palatable. Crystal Sershen's narration leaves a lot to be desired. It's slow, with emphasis on the last word of almost every sentence. Her voices left me thinking most of the men are idiots and breathy. Sloan's friend Madison's voice was obnoxious. So, no, I didn't like the narrator. I may have liked the stories more if I'd have read them, however, I didn't like Sloan's character either. She was written as a self important smarter than everyone woman. I thought the constant "I" coming from her character got old, like ONLY she could solve the crime. To her the police were worthless and only good for giving HER information.

awful narration

this narrator was so awful that at the beginning of the book where she ( the narrator) announces the book title and says who it is narrated by, she mispronounces the word. She says "nar -ra-rated" ...... seriously? did no one catch this? the rest of the reading of this book was pathetic. It was so unpleasant that I couldn't get past the first 30 minutes.

Annoying narrators

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story lines is fairly interesting. I would have probably enjoyed reading, but listening to the audiobook was annoying. The narrator makes most of the adult professionals sound like overly dramatic, snarky twelve year olds.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator needs acting lessons, or more life experience.

Was Sloane Monroe Series Boxed Set, Books 1-3 worth the listening time?

No

HAUNTING !!!

WOW GREAT SERIES !!

This was a five star book from beginning to end. I was captivated from page one. I could not get enough of this book. Just when you think you have this book figured out, there is another twist that leaves you shaking your head saying no way. This book left me wanting more. I was upset when it ended. I highly recommend this book. As with all Mrs Bradshaw's books. you will not be disappointed. She is a wonderful story teller and spellbinding Author..

Excellent Set of Books

This set of the novels was wonderful. The twists and turns were frequent and unexpected but always took the stories in a good direction. The main character, Slone Monroe wad very sharp and what a great PI she is. If you like intrigue and suspense you'll love this set.
