Where to begin... This story is incredibly weak and contrived. When you start with a lame story and then add lame, unlikeable, and stupid characters who are constatly doing stupid things it's hard to enjoy the book. It's supposed to be a mystery, but I felt like I was repeatedly being clubbed over the head with ridiculous "hints" that a 3 year old could have picked up on. I suppose some readers might enjoy this book. If you just want to be mindlessly entertained, you might be ok with this story. I just need more in my books. If I want mindless entertainment I will watch TV. Proceed with caution.

The mystery does draw the listener in but as it ended, I felt the plot wasn’t sufficient compensation for the banal prose, repetitive phrases, and merciless annoyance of the lead character. I suppose the point is to show that she truly is her mother’s daughter but her constant, melodramatic whining and the voice used to portray it were maddening. Honestly, could none of the editors consider finding another phrase than ‘her breath caught’ to describe the moment? I offer that one example of the limits of this author’s tool bag. The idea for this story deserved better execution.
