Love this series!

Where does Murder of a Barbie and Ken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love this series. The first book I read on my Kindle but I am knitting a shawl now and enjoy listening to a book while I knit. Christine Leto is the perfect narrator for this book. She captures the accents and tone of voice of each character so well I can almost see them.

Love the series, This one not my favorite

I always enjoy a Scumble River mystery. I enjoyed this one as well, but it wasn't my favorite for a few reasons. In this book, Skye and Simon are trying to blend in with other classy couples. The people they end up with aren't the most pleasant pleasant characters and the book takes us to some aspects of life in this small town that definitely turned me off. (I don't want to give anything away, but some people you just don't even want to imagine naked.) We also have the introduction of the character of Simon's mother Bunny, who is especially annoyiong on audio and who brings out two qualities in Skye that are not my favorites either - (1) her wimpiness or is that small town hospitality? and (2) her preachiness - for example, I think it is perfectly ok for someone who had been betrayed and abandoned as a child not to pursue a relationship with that parent. Overall it was one of the more forgettable plots (it took me a few minutes just now to even remember who did it), but I will keep on with the series.
