Publisher's Summary

When Holly Anna Paladin is given a year to live, she embraces her final days doing what she loves most: random acts of kindness. But one of her extreme good deeds goes horribly wrong, implicating Holly in a string of murders. Holly is suddenly in a different kind of fight for her life.
Only two other people know Holly was at the site of the murder, and one of them is the killer. Making matters stickier is the fact that the detective assigned to the case is her old high school crush and present day nemesis.
The clock is ticking as Holly is forced to play a dangerous game. Will Holly find the killer before he ruins what's left of her life? Or will she spend her final days alone and behind bars?

Very enjoyable story

I really enjoyed this story, well written and good character development. However, I did not enjoy Sandy Rustin as the narrator. For me her voice was just too high pitched and I struggled listening to her.

Could have benefitted from a better narrator

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I wouldn't say time well spent but it was okay since I was crocheting while I listened. There was too much focus on Holly's illness, which by the way, did not make the book better!


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Certainly didn't keep me on the edge of my seat. But since since I wanted to see if it was going to Develop into a really good mystery hung in there. That never really happened.


What three words best describe Sandy Rustin’s performance?

Didn't enhance book!


Could you see Random Acts of Murder being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No, plot is not strong enough or suspenseful enough.


Any additional comments?

I am glad the only thing I paid for was the Audible version. I didn't have to pay for the written version because I got it from Pubabooks which I love since I love books but am on a very limited fixed budget. I like to review the books and give my honest opinion. It seems that good, really good, narrators must be in short supply because most that I have listened to recently are not what I would really call good. In this particular book the narrator's voice was weak. I know Holly Anna, the main character, is in her twenties but ...... The voice for some of the characters, like the one Holly found on her sofa who had been shot, sounded like a ten year old. That is part of the problem with this narrator. Maybe she will get better!
