Aoife McMahon excellent again.

Another great story from Sam Blake. Just purchased book 3 and can't wait to start. Aoife has got to be the best narrator ever. Congratulations to all x

This author is incredible!

Sam Blake will give the best of detective novel authors a run for their money! The characters and scenes are so clear it feels as if you're standing there. I've read almost exclusively crime novels for years, and Sam Blake is at the top of her game. Aoife McMahon as narrator is perfect. Her mellow voice and accents are spot on and she changes easily between male and female characters. The author and narrator are a perfect match. Can't wait to get on to her next novel. Audible please keep this author books on your main list for releases.

Chicklit detective novel

I've tried the first two and that's enough for me. I guess I like my police procedurals or detective novels more straight up. A little romance in them goes a long way for me, and if that's the way you are, I don't recommend this series.

Great narrator, good story, a few irritations

I really liked this book. The narrator was great and the story kept me interested. A few things, though, really bugged me. The author tends to over describe things, even the most mundane, "the gray string on his shirt glistened like a drop of water on a placid lake." I made that up, but it's pretty accurate. At one point, when the main character is walking down a path, it took a solid 10 minutes for her to get where she was going because of all the over-the-top descriptions and the narration of every single tiny thought in her head as she got there.

Another thing that irked me was the amount of times the name "Sarah Jane" was said. Honestly, if it were a drinking game and you had to drink whenever they said the name, everyone would be passed out after chapter 2.

Finally, the excessive and totally unnecessary detail about her boxing got me irritated. It's how I feel when someone at work tells me about their workout. Who cares? It's braggy. But, in spite of all that, I did enjoy the book.
