This was a good book...and the audio was fantastic. I would recommend this book and the audio too ! The book-audio kept you interested from beginning to end. l like reading the book and before I go to sleep setting the timer for an hour and listening to the audio .
Yet another book where the publisher tells an author that “sex sells” so she drops a sex scene in the book and thinks that’s a good thing. Believe me, it’s not! If you can’t write some kind of sexual attraction then don’t write sex in your book because it just stupid. And, by the way, there was nothing hot and steamy or explicit or anything but vanilla about it. I have no idea why the sex was even in this book.
That being said, it was a decent murder mystery. Jake was likable but I’m not so sure about Clare. I really get tired of the attitude “I can do it myself or I can take care of myself or I don’t need anyone,” you know what I mean. That was Clare’s attitude through the whole book. It became very tiring.
In the end I couldn’t figure out why Clare would want to go back to New York and pack up her stuff and come back to Farley. That was one unfriendly town, and the killer was a surprise. He was also one vicious murderer, having been at it for 15 years or more. The things he did were just horrendous.
There was a little swearing and the F-bomb was released 1 time.
I got this through KU.
As to the narrator: The other reviewer gave her 1 star because of the accents but I don’t think she did badly at all. My family mostly lives in Tennessee so I, too, am familiar with southern accents, so we all hear things differently. My main concern is whether her men sound like men, and they did. Rebecca Cook has a deep voice anyway so I knew she could do a man’s voice well. And she read with emotion, too. She didn’t make Sammie’s voice sound little-girl-like but I was OK with that.
