The reader did a fantastic job. She has a beautiful accent easy to understand and great expression! The story is an intriguing and tangled mystery which all comes together toward the end. A love story or two is also included. Great listening experience.

Subject: Awful Reader
I couldn't get past 5 minutes with this book. The reader is terrible, I couldn't understand her. It's like she had a thick accent and read extremely slow.

Subject: Great short story!
An enjoyable story, especially if you want something short but fast-paced and interesting. Took a couple of chapters to get used to the reader and her style, but once I got accustomed to it, I was able to kick back and relax for the rest of the story.
