Joanna Bourne is extremely talented. This was the first time I've listed to one of her novels and Kirsten Potter, the narrator, was mesmerizing.

Any additional comments?
I really enjoy Joanna Bourne's spy/romance novels; her characters are interesting and she writes good but not overly convoluted plots. They are quick, fun reads.<br/><br/>However, I am really mad at myself that I again bought her book on audio; I should have remembered that these are books that I can't easily listen to again because the reader is so very bad at accents. Her main fake accent is what might be called standard British, only it's not. I am American, but I am constantly wincing at how badly Ms. Potter pronounces both the English dialogue as well as her pseudo French accent. She is actually a decent narrator although she tends to read very similarly from book to book. But I am really annoyed by readers who don't have the skill or the ear to do well by the material. This is bad enough that I'm warning other listeners off of it.
