Can't Get Past The Narration

I very much enjoy Margaret Maron's books. I've read them all and have enjoyed each one. I thought listening to them would be a pleasure as well but I'm sorry to say I cannot 'hear' Deborah in C.J. Critt's narration. She sounds like a New England transplant, not the "Bootlegger's Daughter". There's not a trace of any Southern accent. Curiously however Dwight sounds quite Southern. So I will stick to Margaret Maron in print.

I went with a neutral rating for the story since I only got about 1/3 of the way through when I decided the printed version would better suit.

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

The Deborah Knott series is one of my favorites. However, this was one that I could have skipped. I would have liked to see Deborah and Dwight work together as a team with a little more time spent on their personalities/relationship, with less spent on all the various NY characters who seemed to get more time than they were worth (such as the NY detective and her roommate) while not advancing the story.

Has Three-Day Town turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I'll still read the next in the series.

What does C.J. Critt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is by far my favorite reader. I've tried new authors because she was the reader.

Could you see Three-Day Town being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

No. But there are other stories in the series that would work.
