A suspicious affair

I so enjoy Barbara Metzger’s writing style - love the wry humour and clever phrases. The intrigue is absorbing and makes the story line seem new and fresh. Pippa Rathborne as reader is absolutely perfect in every way.and a joy to listen to. I never tire of listening to these books. Would there were very many more to add to my library.

An Angry Affair

I can’t imagine what this couples marriage will be like. They shouted at each other every time they got close enough to see the whites of their eyes. 🙄 My biggest complaint for the story has to do w/the ending so I can’t say w/out spoiling it, lol. And Pippa Rathbourne has a terribly irritating voice when she’s shouting thru the whole book! Between her voice the characters irascibility, I’d skip this one. Imo ymmv, etc.

Smart, funny writing

Amusing, smart writing. The narrator's voice I find a little grating and she speaks too fast. Lowing the speed of the play made her too slow. Sigh. Actually if the writer wasn't so good, I wouldn't have stuck with this book. But the writer is that good. So many of these types of book have such poorly constructed and unbelievable story lines, they make you want to scream. Not so with Barbara Metzger. Barbara, spend the extra and get a really good narrator and you'd have a following on Audible.

Death with doses of humor

Loved the characters in the book. I've read other books by this author and she's never disappointed me. The narrator was also a great fit.

Not Funny!

I read the reviews saying how funny and entertaining. listening to this audible was like listening to two miserable old couple bicker for 6 hours.

Lighthearted with humor and twists

I could see where this would be a fun story with plenty of humor in how the characters relate and interact, but I had a little trouble sticking to it. Lots of fast speed and fast forwarding on this one. Narrator is good, but sometimes her characters seem much older than they are.

One of my favourites

I love this story. Can never get enough of it. I chose to listen to it for a change. I found that I could not appreciate the narrator.
