very very disappointing

I love Emma Lathen and was thrilled to see her in audio. I was not at all thrilled to listen to this production. to start with why the musical background? It was seriously irritating and did absolutely nothing to move the story along. at intervals we got appropriate noises such as taxi noises, and sitting by the ice rink noises, really dustracting. I was not much impressed with the reader. he just carried on regardless of the meaning or setting. so one second we were listening to a guy trying to buy the team and then immediately with no break someone was talking to Clemmie, the part owner, and then we bounced off somewhere else. I read this book many years ago and enjoyed it. I still found the story line held my interest, and I'm reading another Emma Lathen on Kindle, so I still find the author enjoyable. But I couldn't finish this audio book. so very disappointing.
