Would you consider the audio edition of Playing With Poison to be better than the print version?
No, but its a very good edition nonetheless. I like that when you're listening, things you might have skimmed come to your attention and you go "I don't remember reading that!"
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes it did, because we all wanted to know who killed the money guy. I was suspicious of the actual killer from very early on. But then, I've snorted a hell of a lot of detective novels in my time.
Which character – as performed by Caroline Miller – was your favorite?
Well now ... in the book, my favourite character was the detective. But I have to admit, in the audio version, I got quite fond of "Karen", the redhead.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I swooned. In all the right places, and in a manner entirely appropriate to some of the novelist's characters :)
Any additional comments?
Listening to the story is great, I picked up so many bits I must have inadvertently "skimmed" , and Caroline Miller gives each character just enough definition to make them recognisable, but not in an over-the-top way. I liked Caroline's "Candy" better than I did the original :)

Thoroughly enjoyed this mystery, enough suspects to keep everyone interested and the twist end is classic. Especially enjoyed the comedic moments, the situations are so real life, you just have to laugh out load. One can almost picture the our heroine, great real life feel and responses from the characters! I think listening to this mystery is better than reading, one get the full atmosphere, which is real, one feel as if you could actually find the Stone Fountain!

really enjoyed this although it took a little while to adjust to the American accent
