Tall, Dark, Dead & Poorly Edited

This book has inspired me to write my first review. I have listened to 100s of book on audible and frequently let the reviews guide my purchase but have never been moved to review a book before. I bought this book because the storyline seemed like fun and the narrator, Ms. Ronconi, is my favorite narrator. She does an excellent job, as usual, giving each character their own unique voice. The story itself was sweet, funny, romantic and entertained me from start to finish. It reminded me very much of Molly Harper's novels, also narrated by Ms. Ronconi. At this point I will try to explain why this book only received a 2 star rating. The editing was awful. The first hour or two was seamless but after that everything went south. Phrases were overlapped on top of each other, spacing between words would lag way, way too long. Everything would be fine for a minute or two and then the issues would start again. I was able to decipher the sentence structure but it was unbelievably frustrating and very distracting. The errors were so noticeable that I believe nobody gave the final product even a cursory listen. If I were the author I would be very disappointed and embarrassed that this was the final result.
I have to admit though I enjoyed the story and narration enough that I plan on downloading at least the next book in the series.

Technical difficulties?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the authur and the story, but not the audible version. There are an overwhelming number of instances of POOR editing. So many that it distracts from the overall experience of this book. But I do enjoy Amanda Ronconi and look for books she has narrated. .
