If you like Miss Marple you'll enjoy this.

Beautifully narrated, relaxing listen, perfect for a Sunday afternoon despite the murderous subject matter. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A partial review... An unfair but honest opinion

I dearly want to "get into" this book, and author, but try as I do, I just cannot. I listen mainly in the car while driving, and there is something about this book that "doesn't click"...

I have listened to the first few chapters at least 3 times, and beyond there being a character called "Mordecai" I really cannot recall any detail.

I *think* it is the narrator and the pace - it may require more attention that I can give while driving. It may be the content, but I am not prepared to give up just yet.

It may be a mixture of: slow start to the story, slow pace to the narration, and, frankly, while very well enunciated, very boring tone of voice.

I don't want to be harsh on the narrator, but I think he either needs to read this as a book, with no attempt at distinguishing the parts though "voice", or do the complete opposite. As it is read at the moment is, to me, just monotonous.

Sorry - This may not help as a review, but if there is an option to listen to a sample before purchasing, I strongly suggest you do that!

Excellent listening

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A good well thought out story and plot which keeps the listener/reader guessing to the very end. Additionally I found the reader, Geoffrey Beevers, very easy to listen to..

What was one of the most memorable moments of Murder Has a Motive?

Once I started listening to the story, I found it difficult to stop until the very end..

Any additional comments?

For those who like a good old fashioned who-done-it, this book is ideal.

Thoroughly enjoyable

So good to listen to old fashioned story. Narration sent me off to sleep quite nicely. Kept me guessing till last chapter. Will listen to the other stories in the series.
