Enjoyable until the end
I selected this book because of its setting (I'm a long time resident of the area) and the concept of the story being told by individual characters. The read was pleasant enough--performances by the narrators quite good--but parts of the plot became a bit predictable. What was the most disappointing was the very end. I felt lured to the conclusion only to be left hanging mid-air. I even listened a second time..still can't figure out what the last chapter was intended to communicate.

Not my cup of tea
To be fair, I usually listen to fast-paced murder mysteries. This book was not that at all. For me the story line was too slow and too much story telling about the wives and their lives. I kept waiting for some investigating to occur. I tried to keep listening, but about half way through, I gave up. Maybe the book gets better at the end. Also, I just couldn't find it plausible that the wives had no idea that their husband was already married, particularly in this age of technology. The performance of the book was fine, but overall this was not my cup of tea.
