Eight Hours Was Not Enough
When I was 6 years old, my mother bought me a Nancy Drew Mystery Story. I was MIA until I finished it - in about three hours of steady reading. Like gobbling up an ice cream cone in two bites. It was the start of a lifelong addiction to reading. I can't imagine what I would have done if Audible had been around in those days with excellent readers like Deanna Hurst. I probably would not have eaten or slept. I would not have gone to school. I would have been absorbed into books, non-stop. They would have had to send me to a book detox center. Well, years later there is no more Nancy Drew or Beverly Grey but now there's Marcia Muller and her alter ego Sharon McCone. Not only have I read the entire series up to and including Locked In and Coming Back, I am sitting here waiting for Ms. Muller to write her next book and hoping it will be soon because I am having definite withdrawal symptoms. Her well balanced characters, her courage to allow Sharon to hire people who have, in traditional literature, been shunned or stereotyped and her excellent, complicated plots that take twists and turns without becoming either boring or illogical is what keeps me listening. The only complaint - hey, I want the books to be longer. Well, you can't have everything. Read it, you'll love it.

Where does Coming Back rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?
Coming Back was not the book I thought it would be, although it did tell the story.
I thought there were too many characters, too much jumping around. Perhaps this series is done?
