What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Actually Ann Marie Lee did a very good job!
What could Allison Brennan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Make the characters more believable. It seems that she couldn't make up her mind about whether or not Lucy was a fragile person that needed people around her to lean on for support or was actually a strong independent woman. I wish she hadn't felt the need to put a romance in the story. That's what made it so silly. I felt like I was listening to a Harlequin romance.
What about Ann Marie Lee’s performance did you like?
She has a very nice voice and reads well
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love Me to Death?
The sappy romance.

I tried to like this story. I need a new series and stumble on this. The main character is really hard to relate to because the author has made her to be everything rolled up into one person: victim, Olympic athlete, computer genius, criminal profiler, psychologist, marksmen...the list goes on and on and on. The rest of the story wasn't any less cliche.
The internal character monologues are all way too long and over explain every plot point. Each monologue started to feel like teenage angst, but maybe that's the author's target audience?
I ended up skipping several chapters and didn't get lost. So a chapter turner, not so much a page turner.
If you want a good crime novel, this isn't it. But if you want lots and lots and lots of character development and internal turmoil, you'll like it.
The narrator did a good job. I can't fault her for the slow moving story.
