A good listen
After not being able to find the next book I wanted in the Temperance Brennan series, I decided to try some of Kathy Reichs other books, with a different narrator - Cristin Milioti.
What started out as a voice I was not sure I liked, turned out to be a compelling story teller. Probably would be suited to a younger audience, but I found myself listening to the book at every spare minute.
With definite parallels to the Temperance Brennan series - the heroine being her great-niece, it was a familiar style of story.
A bit if detective work, a lot of "meddling" by those who shouldn't , some sci-fi (I.e. Reminiscent of the Spider-Man beginnings), and throw in some baddies and a small bit of love interest. The end result is a intriguing story with likable characters and a narrator who brings us all together with a voice full of expression.
I am now ready to download the second in the series. 👍🏻
