Aggravatingly disconnected

I read the first two books in this series and enjoyed them but then there are two books in the sequence not on audible. I took a chance it wouldn’t matter but it niggled all the way through this book and characters had developed in ways that had no logic without the sequence. Not the fault of either author or narrator, I suspect, but did remind me why I don’t generally read series with gaps in.
