Publisher's Summary

After leaving the hippie commune she grew up on, Summer Rains set a modest goal for herself: earn enough money to live a normal life in the real world.
Maybe she was aiming too high.
When she wished she could get rid of the platinum-selling pop star who was stalking her, she didn't mean 'get rid of' in the permanent sense. But someone did. And being a suspect isn't the kind of attention she wants from the gorgeous-but-entirely-too-condescending detective investigating the case. As if that wasn't bad enough, her only help comes from the man she's been in love with since her hormones kicked in...and his beautiful girlfriend.
Sounds like a good time to reassess her goals. 'Living a normal life' moves down the list, and 'figuring out who the real murderer is before she gets thrown in jail' moves all the way to the top.
But crime-fighting wasn't part of the home-schooling curriculum back on the commune. So solving the case is an on-the-job kind of thing. Along the way, she learns other skills--how to fold hospital corners, how to keep herself from becoming the next victim, and how to deal with all the insanity of the 'real world'.

The Latest Sit-Com

How do 3 and 4 add to 1; I'll tell you how? If any of the caricatures of human beings in this book were anything like real people I must have missed them. If any of them displayed two dimensions, much less three; I guess I missed that as well; which is too bad. There are times when in this audio when the text showed a great deal of wit, humor and talent. The plot was potentially very interesting, and the outline of the book's characters seemed to be unique and promising. Unfortunately the actual writing only delivered the aforementioned one dimension of sit-com caricatures. The author is talented and I would consider other works of hers in the future; however i can't recommend this one.

Great Writing & Performance-Technical Difficulties

What made the experience of listening to No Experience Required the most enjoyable?

Great Writing & Performance-Technical Difficulties-read the eBook for the ending.

This is a fun, easy to listen to book. I wish there were more books available by Lauren Stewart on audio books.

What does Maya Tremblay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Professional, articulate performance.

Any additional comments?

Great mystery novel

A different perspective on female lead murder mystery novels. A girl who grew up in a commune moves to the big smoke. Romance, laughs and intrigue adding with some more serious notes. Great narrator, expressive.
