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.

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?
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.

It took sometime to get into into the book, thought the voice was too robotic, but the became accustomed
To it once I got into the character. Fun easy read
the narration is awful. The characters all sound so angry with each other all the time.
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.
this narrator should not do male voices. They sounded very cartoonish. otherwise the story was pretty good.
