What did you love best about Webs of Fate?
The story is a fast paced window into the world of department stores and high fashion laced with mystery, intrigue, suspense and romance. The author does a masterful job of writing the chapters to prevent the listeners/ reader from putting the book down. It’s almost impossible not wanting to know what is going to happen next.

Let me start by saying that this is a long book! It is over 15 hours...one of the longer ones I have in my library. However, the cliff-ending chapters are short, which I love, and kept me listening! For those of you who like long listens, this may be the one for you! It is the first book I have read in this series, as well as my first from this author. If I choose to listen to the others, I now have a good understanding of the characters, being that this is the Prequel to Darlene Quinn's Web Series. Either way, it is able to be read as a stand-alone, if you so desire. The author seems to have written a book that appeals to lovers of multiple genres. She covers mystery, romance, and suspense and includes themes of greed, loyalty, lies, love, and crime. It will be especially loved by those who find interest in the 80's high end department stores.
The narration was good, except for the beginning of the novel. The narrator's pace was very quick for the first hour or two...it almost sounded rushed (at normal speed). I'm not sure if I just got used to it or if she slowed down, but I think her speed contributed a bit to my confusion in parts of the book. However, I felt her voices, tone, and inflection were right on cue. I think Karin Allers was a good match for this audiobook!
I rated Webs of Fate by Darlene Quinn 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt that the story could have been of shorter length. The multi-layered plot and introduction of multiple characters had me confused at times. I found myself re-listening to chapters so I could figure out what I missed. This was okay to me at first, since the chapters were short, but after doing it in five different parts, I started to become a little bothered. However, this is just my own personal opinion. I do plan to continue with the Web Series, and I recommend you give it a try! If you are looking for a well-written book by an author who is experienced and well-researched in the area of department stores/management, this is the one for you!!
Thank you for reading my review!
