I enjoyed the author's previous series and found this poor by comparison. The narrator's voice is grating, the main character is unlikable and I found the dialogue hard to listen to. I wish the author would bring back her Coffee, Books and More setting and characters.

If you could sum up A Story to Kill in three words, what would they be?
Great new series
What did you like best about this story?
I like the characters and the idea that it is a writer's retreat run by a writer is great. It will be interesting to see how this story develops.
How could the performance have been better?
I'm not quite sure, but I think she would be better suited narrating non-fiction works. Her enunciation is too clipped, her diction too precise, and her inflection in the dialogue ruins the story. I will be reading this one. Susan Boyce does a great job on Ms. Cahoon's other series. I really wish that she could read this one, too. (Or at least, someone with Ms. Boyce's understanding of dialogue.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. Because of the narration.
Any additional comments?
Please confine C S E Cooney to nonfiction. I'm sure that is better suited to her talents.
