Reviews

Highly Enjoyable

(4.5 stars)

Engaging story with a likable protagonist who, rather trusting, gets himself into some precarious situations. He is up to any task though and quite remarkably so. The challenges faced are often humorous allowing for an enjoyable listen. As usual, Mr. Kilmer's narration is divine.

interesting read and nice narration

(4 stars)

Loved the humor, the mystery, the end romance and the growth of main character. Enjoyably read.

FUN AND GAMES

(5 stars)

A very different sort of book than I am used to from Oppenheim. It was a great romp, and I recommend it to all who enjoy light adventurous romance. And, a hearty thanks to Richard for his easy listening narration.
