A wonderful whodunit

I really enjoyed this book. It was a great whodunit. It kept you guessing til the very peak of it all. As usual with Julie Elizabeth Powell's books, the story was a complex one with great characters. The characters were well thought out and the story flowed nicely. The more books I read from Julie Elizabeth Powell it amazes me that she's not a household name. She is an amazing writer. Another great read. I highly recommend it.
The narration was great. I enjoyed how animated the narrator was and how it really bring you into the story and makes you feel like you're right there and a part of it all.

An excellent short thriller

What made the experience of listening to A Murderer's Heart the most enjoyable?

The main character Ann was quite likable and the narrator was outstanding.

What about Melanie Fraser’s performance did you like?

Her voice is strong, clear and even withouth the annoying lower range dropout that many narrators have. A real plus to senior listeners like me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Thrillers make me shiver. I did like the ending.

Any additional comments?

Well written, wonderfully paced and easy to pick the story back up when I had to stop listening. I plan to listen to more books by this author.

Great story

Would you listen to A Murderer's Heart again? Why?

I wouldn't listen to it again no. I love the story as I've read the kindle edition before, but the narrator didn't appeal to me if I'm honest. There were a lot of instances where she should have taken a breath, or a slight pause, and she didn't. This really spoiled the listening experience for me I'm afraid.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Murderer's Heart?

The story itself was the memorable part for me.

What aspect of Melanie Fraser’s performance might you have changed?

She could pause between some paragraphs, take a bit more care in parts of the story where the characters are changing from one scene to another.

Any additional comments?

The story itself I rated originally as 5 stars, on reading the kindle edition, and my opinion has not changed in the slightest. The only thing which lets it down is, in my humble opinion, the choice of narrator.

Brilliant murder mystery.

What did you like most about A Murderer's Heart?

The voice of Melanie Fraser was excellent. She has a wonderful voice to listen to and an impressive range of voices, both male and female.

What other book might you compare A Murderer's Heart to, and why?

I do not like to compare books to each other, a Murderers Heart is a unique story with an excellent storyline and great characters.

Have you listened to any of Melanie Fraser’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the first narration of Melanie Fraser I have heard however I was very impressed with her range of voices both male and female.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did want to, the plot was excellent with well rounded characters and plenty of twists and turns.
