What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dead Bore?
This is a cozy little mystery that keep my interest from beginning to end. The almost romance between Lady Fieldhearst and John Pickett is charming .

What can go wrong with a story with such a pun in the title? Nothing, I tell you!
It's a delightful mystery. And I'm not saying this because I've heard the previous two John Pickett mysteries and by now am a fan. This story is a sort of Agatha Christie big-house Poirot mystery set in Regency England. There's a satisfying slow-burn romance on top of that...and an interesting prophecy... (done from Tarot cards, which always pleases me, since I've some skill in that) The two main characters felt like my old friends since the previous novel, and now I'm the faithful companion on their fun journey full of dead bores :)
I can't stress enough how nice it is to listen to Joel Froomkin narrating, but then - don't trust me, I'm a fan! Go give him a listen and find out for yourself :)
My heartfelt thanks to the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook via Audiobook Boom at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

Would you try another book written by Sheri Cobb South or narrated by Joel Froomkin?
Yes, the narrator is fantastic and the author weaves a convincing and suspenseful story.
Was A Dead Bore worth the listening time?
Yes, I love this series.
Would you listen to A Dead Bore again? Why?
I would defiantly listen to Dead Bore again! I found John Pickett, who I love a lot, to be funny and interesting. I couldn't find anything really wrong with this book and that's saying something because I usually find something that puts my off a book. But not in this case which I must admit surprised me. I think this is to do with the main characters, who are completely different from each other, that kept me hooked to the book. I would defiantly be reading/listening to the next one in this series.
I have not read/listened to the first book in this series, so you can read it without reading book one since there is no cliff hanger, however I got the impression that the relationship between the two characters will progress a bit more during the series.
I would recommend this book to anyone who love historical fiction, mystery, a little romance with funny moments.
Who was your favorite character and why?
John Pickett the bow street runner who investigated the murder has to be my favorite character. I have not come across a character like his and I loved him! I also found him to be funny even though he is trying not to be. The are moments that made me smile and other moments where I laughed out loud.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
I would give the narrator 3 1/2 stars. At the beginning I found it a bit confusing on who was saying what based on the voice impressions the narrator was doing. If there was a dialogue between two/three characters then it was perfect you can distinguish between the characters. They felt realistic enough that you get sucked into the book. This especially happened in moments between John and Lady Fieldhurst.
