College kids are showing up dead on Sugar Mountain. At first glance, they appear to be hunting accidents. On deeper inspection, it appears someone has started a deadly game. Sherriff's from nearby are called in to take a look at the evidence and the Portman's Creamery ladies are brought in to help. As they continue their investigation, they begin to see a bigger picture that is quite alarming. Will they be able to get the word out before they become the hunted?
This was along the lines of a cozy mystery. I couldn't get into what was supposed to be friendly bickering and witty banter. It seemed either forced or just written badly. There was also a complete lack of atmosphere developed by the author. There should have been some suspenseful parts but the narration was very flat and businesslike and I think this distracted from the story line as well.
The narration reminded me quite a bit of Bryan Zee who does the Hellsfire series. Where the odd cadence works for that series, it didn't work here at all. There was just no attempt to perform the narration. The reading took quite a bit of enjoyment out of the listen for me. I listed on 1.5 speed.
However much I don't like to give a completely negative review, I have to be honest here and say this was a disappointing listen.
I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.
Unfortunately the narrator took what might have been a decent book and turned it into more of a newscast. He didn't tell the story he read it at you in a newscaster type voice. I listened to about an hour of it before I couldn't take it anymore and I was not able to finish the book. From what I did listen to it's a light mystery with decent characters and the storyline was interesting. Hit the story actually been told by someone instead of presented as a newscast, I might have enjoyed it quite a bit. I receive this book at no cost from audio boom for my honest and unbiased opinion.
