What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Better writing and a better performer
Has Title Wave turned you off from other books in this genre?
Just from this author
Would you be willing to try another one of Karen White’s performances?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment for sure. The setting was very promising--a cruise with authors and readers. Heck, I would sign up for that. But the characters were so over the top. I suspect a lot of this was due to the performer--almost every character was delivered in a haughty voice, except for the Italians, who sounded like they'd walked out of 1950s Central Casting. Such heavy accents! But the writing was also very overdone. It's enough to tell me that one character sat at the table with another. I don't need to know that she pulled out the chair, smoothed her dress, and sat down. The whole book is full of these unnecessary details, except when it comes to the mystery, which is only solved after a vital piece of information is revealed in the last few chapters. So disappointing, and frustrating, are the reactions the book sparked.
Any additional comments?
I guess one positive is that I keep listening till the end. And another is that the central characters grew on me a little bit. But not enough to follow their further adventures.

I have listened to the ENTIRE series 5 times and I love it more eachtime. This volume didn't disappoint! I love all the characters and the narrator's voice is perfect for this series. Going by the sounds of the ending there's still more to come...Woohoo Lorna Barrett😀😀😀
