I came right over," she said. "Is he going to be okay?""His injuries are beyond what I can deal with here in the clinic," he replied, concern in his voice. "I've stabilized him. An ambulance is on its way to transfer him to Grace Memorial. He's in Exam Room Two, on the left."Penelope steeled herself and slipped into police officer mode. "Can he talk?" She started to walk past him and Jacob grabbed her arm."He doesn't need any more stress right now...""We need to know who did this, Jacob. I need to talk to him while I can. In case...in case I can't talk to him later."Jacob sighed. "I'll give you a few minutes. Penny, he's beat up really bad.

Narration made this book a little slower

I am not sure if it was the story or the narrator, but this book lags slowly in the beginning. It does pick up in the end, but I almost gave up early on. The narrator reads some of the story almost as if she wants to enunciate EVERY word emphatically. That wore on me as the story continued. She tended toward monotone, no inflection. Otherwise, I think the story would have had a better flow. Characters are believable, and I did not guess the ending. That is good.

Its in His Hands

What made the experience of listening to One Chance the most enjoyable?

I could feel the characters in he way Mim Drew told the story, the audio made it more real. As I listened I kept wondering as a police office how did Penny keep her faith?
I'm sure at times it was challenged, but it certainly didn't take anything from the storyline.

What did you like best about this story?

I love Inspiration/Christian Fiction with some mystery thrown in.

What about Mim Drew’s performance did you like?

I did like it, she has a voice that pulls you in.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Penelope's First Case

Good Story line with Christian main character

Good mystery with praying police officer.
Narrator fine except for the odd way her voice ended a lot of words.

Great story! Painful narration.

The story was great. Interesting and sweet. Ans that's a very good thing because the performance was so painful to listen to. At first I thought it was a computer generated voice. Uber pronunciation and dead pan delivery.

Cheesy and unrealistic

The story was cheesy and unrealistic. They had a female cop investigating her best friend?? Not realistic! Also the narrator did well but she perpetually sounds like something big is coming, even when it’s not. Gets a little old sometimes. If I wasn’t desperate without WiFi right now, I would have returned the book... waste of my time.
