What made the experience of listening to Murder Between the Pages the most enjoyable?
As much as I love Josh Lanyon, and think that her books are the gold standard of m/m romance, especially her historical books. I am sad to say this one fell a little flat.The 1940's ambiance was present, but the characters felt a little one dimensional.And maybe because this was a shorter story, there wasn't the character background and development that we see from Lanyon's longer stories.I did enjoy it, but its not my favorite of hers.
What other book might you compare Murder Between the Pages to and why?
Snowball in Hell, the "Doyle and Spain #1" which I loved, and so wish had a sequel, and also her Holmes and Moriarity series.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kale Williams?
Anyone. Although he had a nice well modulated voice it was very confusing because the 2 main characters sounded exactly alike. And I was very confused, not realizing until the 3 or 4th chapter, that the POV switched back and forth. I never was able to discern differences in Fuller and Day, marking them with their own personalities. For me the narrator did a poor job of making each a separate persona.
The plot was interesting, and the MC's had great potential. And I am still and always a Lanyon fan. I wish I had read it, instead of listened to this one.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Murder,and mystery in a bookstore murder, and authors become amateur sleuths.
Another great mystery/romance by Josh Lanyon. It is also historical, as it is based right after WWII and includes the great colloquiums of that time. This is an enemies to lovers trope, heavy on the mystery (murder within a locked room) with a secondary budding romance and the quintessential JL HFN ending. The narrator does a good job and I have enjoyed his work with other books. However, there was very little distinction between the MCs voices. So since there were alternating POVs, it was sometimes difficult to determine who was speaking if you missed the name at the beginning of the chapter. Overall, an enjoyable listen.
I was entertained by this Josh Lanyon story but i didn't love it. The story arc was very formulaic and just when the romance aspect started to get going, the story was over. I wasn't convinced by the romance either. The narration was very good.
