Reviews

A reader one has to get used to.


(4 stars)

A good mystery. Every clue seems obvious. I did guess who it was but not because I had information as to why they did it. This is part of my yearly mystery read.

A FUN ROMANTIC WHODUNNIT


(4.5 stars)

Burrows is not Sam Spade nor Phillip Marlowe nor Hercule Poirot, but he is a pleasant, hardworking detective who always "gets his girl." Kilmer is always easy on the ears.

A good relaxing read


(5 stars)

Not a complex story, however, it has a few u expected twists. The reader's voice is clear and well recorded.

Narrator did his i sual great job. Story just barely kept my interest to the end.


(3 stars)

A plain straightforward mystery. There are no twists nor turns. There is only 1 surprise & it's the ending. It's only a surprise because you're not given the information earlier to suspect the person of murder. Still, I don't regret listening to this. As usual, Richard has a wonderful voice but it does rise all of the time in the middle of sentences instead of after a question is asked. I hope he changes this then reads everything!


(2 stars)

Have tried several times to listen to this book but can not get beyond Mr. Richard Kilmer's pathetic, sing song voice. Maybe the book needs a second choice or Mr. Kilmer needs to spend 10 hours listening to his own voice. He would have lasted about 10 minutes with my voice teacher. ( too old and too Southern to audtion)

Schöne Geschichte, angenehm gelesen


(5 stars)

Wie immer ist es einfach entspannend, Richard Kilmer zuzuhören. Seine Art zu lesen erleichtert es nicht nativ speakers, die Geschichte gut zu verstehen und dabei Spaß zu haben. Vielen Dank dafür!

I thought the story was interesting, but had a weak ending. The reader has an enjoyable voice, reads in a sing-song manner that is a little distracting.
