Audible Editor Reviews

While Christine Morris is in Edinburgh for a conference, she learns that her estranged mother is missing and a murder suspect. So begins this Canadian crime writer's well-crafted mystery. Does Your Mother Know is part of Maureen Jennings' Christine Morris Mystery series. Caroline Shaffer's performance is gifted. She handles Scottish accents with aplomb, bringing to life the already vivid characters. Her pacing is gentle and her voice both sweet and earnest. Shaffer is a breeze to listen to, even for 10 hours.

Written in First Person

It could be me, I'm not a big fan of first-person narratives. It's a rare author that manages to get enough objective distance from her/his protagonist to get it right. This author made me wince with discomfort revealing a lack of insight or humor in over-long defensive monologues. I wanted to like it because of the setting, but gave up halfway.
