I’m forever eagerly waiting for audible and Post Hypnotic Press to release the next book in this series, which has fast become one of my favourite audiobook series (kudos also to Lisa Bunting for her excellent narration).
What I like about these books is not only the mystery per se (even though the present one is among my favourites of the five books I’ve read so far, it’s almost secondary) but the way we have been gradually getting to know Joanne, her history and her friends and family. I love the detail we hear about daily life at the Kilbourn house that paint such a vivid picture. Take, for example, this description of preparing the house for Easter guests:
“Angus and I made up the beds, got out the new bath towels and brought the leaves from the dining room table in from the garage. Taylor and I drove out to the nursery and bought lilies and a pot of African violets the colour of heliotrope for Mica and Greg’s room.”
None of this is even remotely relevant for solving any crimes, of course, but I greatly enjoy listening to it – as well as about the times Joanne just can’t be bothered and orders takeout. If this is not your kind of thing, then probably these books are not for you. If it is, don’t start here but get “The Deadly Appearances” first.
