so frustrating

Quite fun stories but if you're going to pay for someone to narrate a book get the mistakes removed before you publish. I'm glad I got 3 for the price of one

Light, fun listen

The Avery Shaw series are ok - a fun, light hearted listen but found Avery irritating. Her boyfriend has incredible patience!!!

hurts my ears

Awful narrator. Listening to this book is like being in a room full of squeaking, squawking, angry teenagers...

My favorite series

Love the characters, the banter, the stories. Narrator does good male voices. Got to be hard to pull off without sounding ridiculous. At least I know my Avery voice is. I've said too much.

Yikes!

I like the Avery Shaw mysteries... but oh my goodness, this narrator is tough to continue listening to! Her cadence is off and nearly every guy-voice is high pitched and nasal.

It doesn't help that SEVERAL places have repeats from unedited recordings. I suffered through them, but I don't look forward to getting Book 7 through Audible. I'll probably bite the bullet and get the ebook.

As for the story, Book 6 may be my favorite as far as Avery's character development is concerned. I've wanted to like her from the get-go, but it was difficult in some of the earlier books... there was no end to her anger and it was starting to grate. At least in the last book in this series we see her anger and feisty nature doing more than upsetting her mother and making random people want to do her bodily harm.

Looking forward to more mysteries and more character development in future books!

*SPOILER ALERT* I don't know what it is with the name Ariel (perhaps the author has an arch nemesis and is immortilizing her in several bad characters or maybe The Little Mermaid was traumatic...) but it seems to pop up somewhere in nearly every book... for different characters... I think Book 6 also breaks this mold, unless I just blocked it out. : )

Great book. I laughed and cry along the way

Books 4 through 6 were hard to put down. Amanda M. Lee has a way with making me laugh and cry through them. Avery, Elliot and Jake are great. I love to read books that get my emotions involved. I can't wait to read more of the books.

Editing errors

Whoever edited this book missed a lot of repeated words and lines in this book. The story was great but listening to parts of it were a little irritating.

Good Story & Narration

Avery’s life is a mess, and who does like her if anyone. From the new publisher and the staff at the newspaper, to her love life. Enjoyable and with good narration. Given audio for my voluntary review

Interesting storylines, frustrating editin

I actually am enjoying this series, which at first I didn’t think I could keep with it. The biggest frustration was, as others have stated, is the poor editing of the audio. The first couple of times I thought I had backed up the audio and was hearing a repeat. I knew it was like a skipping record when it happened over and over. As a paying customer, that’s just a poor product delivery.

I love fiction- but a late 20 year old & teenagers???

I tried giving this series another chance, but this is getting ridiculous. Every teenage boy walks up to Avery and wants sex? She punches minors in the balls cause they suggest they want to have sex? Rape is so casually tossed around? The character who is raped asks- you think those are the boys who raped me, and the response is- it’s not your fault...? She never said it was???

Here’s the summary of each character at this point:

Elliot- just wants to fight everyone and have sex every minute
Jake- Avery’s dad
Avery- a twelve year old - super unrealistic for her age and where she is in life

The last group of books were okay, the narrator was my only issue.

This round- it was collectively everything together....

Bummer. I really wanted to like this.
