Nice twist at the end, made me laugh. There’s so much more I’d like to read Rebus think about.

Audible is an app that exists solely so we can pay for the pleasure of having books being read to us. So it is entirely unprofessional to offer such a poorly read book for sale.

I thought it might be fun but it wasn’t. The narration was poor, terrible accents.

Annoying story, Penelope usually good but everyone shouted including Charles. Usually easy fun but not this time. Avoid.

This book is equal parts boring and irritating. I don’t know how it got published.

The new narrator is very good and doesn’t distract from the story with outlandish accents. Very good.

I’ve listened to threeJennifer Cruisie books on Audible, each with a different narrator. The best narrator read Temptation. This narrator sounded like a chipmunk. Riley’s voice was very chipmunklike. I saw Audible as an opportunity to hear my favourite books and it’s turning out to be disappointing because there is no consistency in narrators.

These books are a bit of fun but the narrator goes overboard with accents. The Italian detective spoke no English and yet had an outrageous Italian accent when speaking English. I found it annoying.

This light hearted fun book was read too fast without expression or humour. Such a pity.
