This second entry in the detective Macy Greeley series was a more intelligible and cohesive novel. The reader was good at accents and at emotions; however I wish she would have paused a bit longer between sections. The sections ran together and often made me pause to try to understand where I was. I am not a fan of lavish descriptions of nature but if you are you won't be disappointed by this author's style. The time jumps that were presented in the first novel were fewer in this one. The story gelled together much better and parts of the mystery actually kept me guessing until the end. I liked this story much better than the first.
I enjoyed the story, but at times the awful fake southern accents made it almost unbearable to listen to. It detracted from the story rather than enhancing it. It was ok as long as the reader wasn't doing voices for the characters from Georgia, but I had to force myself to keep listening when she did.
If you could sum up Burnt River in three words, what would they be?
Compelling, Lowlife, Mystery
Who was your favorite character and why?
Detective Macy Greeley, a terrific female character who is funny, feisty and courageous.
Which character – as performed by Erin Moon – was your favourite?
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I found it quite chilling, there is bleakness in the landscape and characters, especially the former veterans.
Any additional comments?
As a murder mystery it was very satisfying and told at a driving pace that kept me returning whenever I had a few minutes spare. Though part of a series this book easily stands alone. I’ll be back for more from Macy
