This book didn't work for me. It's not that it's terribly bad (I've endured much worse) but it was nothing special. The publisher's description sounded really promising but I found myself falling asleep constantly while listening to it - lucky I wasn't driving :) The story was unexciting and the characters not really very compelling. There was nothing that really made this book stand out for me.
Maybe a better narrator could have lifted the book from the "just OK" level. I'm a huge believer in the importance of the narrator - they can make or break. This narrator did not make the book come alive for me. She slurs some of her words and I found this increasingly irritating. Her largely monotone narration contributed to my tendency to fall asleep while listening.
This book was not my best audiobook experience but definitely not my worst - just very blah.

I wanted to like this, I like mysteries but I couldn't connect with the characters. The plot was alright, it had a fair amount of suspense but the characters, especially the woman just irritated me more than anything. She was stubborn and wouldn't listen to reason but we were never given enough reason to understand why she would stick to her guns when it didn't make any sense.
The narrator did a good job with what she had to work with.
