The mystery in this book, and the solution to that mystery, was good and kept me guessing to the end. But Ms Patrick's constant use of certain phrases, (he/she) "snatched a kiss", "wrapped his arms around her", etc, in my opinion took the book from a well written, albeit romance laden mystery, to a schoolgirl dreamy love story. I could have done with a lot less romance and more development of the mystery. The narrator did a good job voicing the characters, and I enjoyed listening to her.

It's a good story. Worth reading. But to be honest it could have been better. It needed more danger or at least sense of danger. And as obsessed as the killer was supposed to appear to be with her it mostly didn't really come across that way. Plus there didn't really feel like there was a connection established as to why she was so special to him. That being said I did think it was good it just had potential to be better.
I found the narrator to be very good at reading the book as well as giving the characters life and voice.

What did you like most about A Familiar Evil?
I liked the suspense and mystery. The narration was enjoyable and the characters' voices were credible and done well.
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the build up of tension and with the multiple suspects, it made it difficult to guess too early who the murderer was.
What does Leonor A. Woodworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Leonor's strength lies in her ability to create a voice for each character, male and female. I got a real sense of the characters' feelings and fears both from the words in the story and in how the narrator was able to express all these different emotions. It was very easy to listen to and the narration made it flow nicely. I really enjoyed it and would certainly look for other books narrated by Leonor A. Woodworth.
Any additional comments?
