I had this on my wish list for several months and finally decided to give it a try. Sorry I did, I could never get hooked into the story. The narrator's cadence was off-putting. I found myself learning how she would pronounce words and her phraseology then it started getting on my nerves. This is the first book I have put down barely one-half in. I will stick to Michael Connelly.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Would you be willing to try another book from Margaret Maron? Why or why not?
Probably not. I found myself groaning a good deal more than anything else.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Let me count the ways...accent, tone of voice, just overall poor reading.
Was Christmas Mourning worth the listening time?
Any additional comments?
I've read several of the books in this series, and I find them to be uneven in how good they are. I love some of the books--and feel the author has interesting knowledge that she weaves in. But sometimes there is too much "filler" for story. Although the actual mystery aspects are usually very good, they are not tops on my list because I never know what to expect. Had thought I might feel differently if I heard one read (and I might have, with a different narrator.)
