Why the narrator switch?
Lindy Nettleton was a much better fit to narrate the series, but it seems she's no longer available. Ms. Nichols was pretty good doing the voices of the other characters (especially Uncle Tolly), but I didn't connect with her as March.
I didn't mind having the middle section given from Grice's point of view at all, except that he's so very obnoxious I wanted March around to counteract that. Molly was a bit over-the-top in being so dense, though it was fun to see Grice having to put up her. As for the plot, I'm not sure I quite got it entirely? The ending was a bit of a shock, but not totally unbelievable.
Looking forward to the next book, though hoping it's a bit less convoluted.

Too long and totally ridiculous solution
This is a poor Sherlock Holmes ripoff. The “personal “detective is a completely obnoxious terrible person, nothing likable about him at all. His Watson is his female ward, who is likeable and independent, but her character does not compensate for the “ personal” detecive’s negatives. The story is too confusing, too long, and the solution is totally unpredictable and totally ridiculous.
