Couldn't stop listening
The performance by Jacqueline King. She has flawless timing and delivery. She does great character voices without making it sound like she's putting on silly voice. Her reading is so good that I often forgot I was reading an audiobook and just got sucked into the story.
The main character. The book is all in first person and Jacqueline King's delivery is hilarious.
I laughed quite a lot. Annette Room's dry humour is what elevates this book above the ordinary. This book is comedy, murder mystery and chick lit (in the best sense) all rolled into one. It's not perfect and the mystery is a bit easy to guess, but it's fun and one of those books where you get wrapped up in the story and romance and have to know what happens next.
I'm disappointed the other books in the series aren't available on audio - hopefully Audible will rectify that!
