I have now read several of the Joanna Brady series, and the author continues to evolve the character nicely. I especially enjoyed the two story-lines and how she wove them together. A good story, with excellent narration and a thoroughly believable working woman main character make this a great listen.

Music between chapters:

I did not care for the "elevator music" between chapters, as opposed to simple Chapter Number Announcements. I like knowing what Chapter that I am hearing , as I listen most often at night and have been know to drift off to sleep despite a strong desire to listen. Knowing what chapter I last remember helps me discover where I should be in the story line, upon awakening. Is that about as clear as mud? Yeah? Okay then!
