The "Vocal Fry" Ruined It

I really enjoyed the synopsis. But I could not finish this book. i really tried . the narrator's Vocal Fry (it's a real term. Look it up) grinded on my ears and my nerves. She purref and growled thru the entire book. I didnt get past tge discovery of the daughter before I threw in the towel. i love stores with dogs in them. But I just can't.
