There's a bit more romance than mystery
House of Dads--Suspenseful and Engaging!
The story is the same between the audio and print versions; they are both suspenseful and engaging. It ultimately depends on how an individual reader best enjoys their reading adventures. The print version puts you in charge of how fast you read, the tone you manufacture, and what parts of the book you savor. The audio version offers an exciting tone presented by Ginny Harman that readers only create in their mind when reading. I love audiobooks!
I still enjoy Hillary, but Violet had some dark and dangerous emotions that were oddly intriguing. It seems she could not help to become the person she is when her mother is so dismissive and vocal about her distain about her daughter. Violet is trying to be strong and show her mother she is right for the job...can anyone stay sane in that situation?
I enjoyed the chapters titled "Violet." They were dark, but one could only be sympathetic to Violet's plight. The voice Ginny Harman uses adds to the depths of despair.
No extreme reactions, but Walt and his eating habits made me giggle and I was sad by all the turmoil Violet dealt with because of her mother's comments.
This is the second book in the Hillary Broome series which continues to provide a thrilling story. Each chapter is cleverly written from the first-person perspective of a main character: Violet, Hillary, Ed—offering the reader an intimate look into each character’s thoughts and motivations. Ginny Harman, the narrator, adds an emotional tone to Violet’s despair, Hillary’s thoughts of her father and her estranged mother, and Ed’s feelings of his daughter who long ago lost her life in a hit and run. This was a wonderful experience.
