What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A different narrator.
Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Castillo again?
Yes, if different narrator.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I hate when the narrator tries to "act out" the different voices. Ex: She used a baby voice that sounded absolutely ridiculous. I couldn't even finish the book, and it was probably a good story. Thank God Audible let's you return stuff!

I suspect that this might be a good book but the narrator is so flat and unemotional, that I found myself drifting off everytime I listened to it. The narrator is also not very good at varying the voice of her characters. It is more challenging for female narrators to "voice" male characters but this narrator really does a poor job. The men all sound alike.
Maybe I'll borrow the book from my library!

I love this series I love the way that the relationships are developing but I feel short changed by the action in the later books and this one is no exception, there isn't quite enough plot in each one, and too much action. Hang on I will explain, how many more times can Kate get completely beaten up?
Its a real shame because she is such a good puzzle solver, she has a unique perspective and setting in a time period that could be contemporary anytime in the last 150 years and yet..... we are back to slugging it out in the mud on a dark & rainy night... again..... Does it ever stop raining in Ohio?
Will I buy the next one? Yes I will, as I said at the beginning I love this series especially Kates journey.
When a man is found hung in his barn, Kate Burkholder, Painter’s Mill Chief of Police, like most people, assumes that it is suicide. However, an artifact found on the body points to an old mysterious event when 4 children and their father died. More twists and turns develop as the story unfolds.
Kate and John Tomasetti’s relationship faces more obstacles. Ghosts from his past raise their ugly heads.
I really enjoy this police procedural series and Kathleen McInnerny’s audio narration is superb.
Reading the next book now!
Narration excellent, book was not worth listening too. To enjoy a book you need to have elements of believability, this book had none of those elements.
