Any additional comments?
Where to start? The plot? Jumps the shark. From the beginning, it's unbelievable.
The lead character? Now an insufferably self-righteous Nancy Drew. Also deluded, in thinking she can "solve" a murder. (I won't even go near the aplomb with which she faces gruesome murders in the course of a day - but cannot "get over" the death of stillborn infant 20 years before.)
Advice to readers: skip this one, and let's hope the author regains her form.

I listened to the last two books in the series in a short two days which is unusually fast for me. I enjoy following the personality descriptions as well as the description of the milieu and universe of Linda W. There were a couple decisions made by the main character, Linda, that seemed a bit too reckless to make complete sense, but they were well argued for and added to the suspense perhaps even more than the murder-mystery. Would Linda and her one son really "get away with it" without facing dire consequences for their choices this time? (Not telling. :)) All of Ivie Harrison's books are interesting in that they depict both very good as well as deeply problematic sides of Mormon theology, heritage and life. All books in this series are important commentaries on Mormon-influenced thought, history and society.
The narration was a bit slow and "mechanical" for my taste, but by speeding it up a bit in the app it worked very well for me. It however prevented me from doing as many chores simultaneously the way usually listen, absorbing all my attention at this higher speed. I was sorry to finish the books! I enjoyed my days in the Linda Wallheim universe very much.
