Great

This is a great series so far. Don’t let the first book put you off, I’m glad I didn’t, even though I couldn’t finish it, I tried again with book two and I’m enjoying the involved plots as this writer improves her craft. Well read, pleasant narration.

I prefer mysteries .....

to politics and this story just was not on...more like a platform with a vague attempt at couching a mystery into it...quite disappointing. The performance was grand despite the story or lack thereof.

Show don’t tell

It’s such a shame that the author keeps doing all the thinking for the reader by constantly explaining what’s going on. We get it, we don’t need constant reminders by the characters. Just tell the story. It’s such a shame because the story is decent and the characters aren’t too bad. A little two dimensional but interesting enough

Another good one

I am committed to this series. I love the setting and atmosphere. The writer does a fantastic job of painting images while the narrator does an excellent job of placing the reader in the story. We have been listening to Kelly's adventures since the first book and cannot wait to start the next one!

Good

I am glad I persevered with these books, I love the main character even though she so has some unlikable traits. Less graphic than the first which I prefer. Overall I like the performance, although sometimes a little flat. I will continue to listen to more.

Brilliant as usual

Love it when you find a writer and series with several books already published. I've finished 3 books in the last 2 weeks and loved them all.
I love that Kelly Porter is good at her job, healthy and has a happy love life. Usually, a female lead needs to have some emotional issues and an addiction of some sort to seem real. Kelly Porter has family issues, but seems to deal with these through positive ways such as running, hiking or counselling from Johnny rather than binge drinking and pain killers. Hope this continues as it's a breath of fresh air.
