A release of an older Donald Bain book in the series, thank goodness

There have been a few sadly disheartening, and unsuccessful attempts, by newer authors, to reproduce the success of Donald Bain at capturing the Jessica Fletcher character popularized by Angela Lansbury in the TV series Murder, She Wrote. This book represents Donald Bain’s classic representation of the original; integral, caring, bright, kind, inquisitive, honourable JESSICA FLETCHER character.

Audible pls bring back more of these golden oldies until a modern author can channel Donald Bain

Good story, but bad voice actor

I am so happy they have released an older novel on audiobook, but the voice actor they used really distracted from the story. Really took me out of the book. At first, I thought she may have a speech impediment, but the more I listened, the less I heard.

One of the worse narratations...

The story was better than average. Reading the book was much better than listening to this narration. Simply can't call it a performance. Disappointing as I do love to listen to the cozies while driving.

Vintage Jessica!

I own all of the audio books in this series. I loved this one. The story was interesting and told in a straight-forward, fast-moving way. I enjoyed the narration too. It was a very different voice for Jessica but it grew on me. I hope more of the older books will be turned into audio books.
