My Thoughts||Audio||Read by: Jan Maxwell

I can say that I enjoyed the audio more than the book. Mostly because I liked the narrator. She made it a lot easier to get through the rest of the book. I didn't get the audio until I had read at least 70 pages or so. I was starting to struggle to get through the book (as been my norm with many books lately because I have gotten so spoiled by being able to listen to books while doing what I need to do). For me personally, I do believe she did a really good job.

My Thoughts||Book:

Although I am enjoying the books and I love the characters, I find myself getting frustrated because I tend to figure out the suspect fairly early (at least 3-5 chapters too early/before they even begin to start pointing in that direction).

I do plan on continuing to read the books, I am unsure how many other books I will read outside of this series because of what I mentioned above. Right now, it's kind of early for me to say a definite yes or no on this and I very well may try just to see if any of her other books outside of this series are the same way (I hope not).

I also found myself figuring out who it wasn't fairly early on as well. I believe I figured out who it wasn't within the first 100 pages or so. Right around 150-200 pages in, I pretty much had a good idea 'Whodunit' and the possible why (I was close, but there was a twist to it). But I now wish I had written down the details of when I figured out who I thought had done it and why, as well as who I knew hadn't done it. Maybe if/when I go onto the last two books, I will try to remember to write down when I start figuring stuff out so I can put a definite on when I "knew" who it was or wasn't.

The next two books in the series are:
All Dressed In White
The Sleeping Beauty Murder

I did see All Dressed in White when I went book shopping last week, but because I forgot my Kindle at home, I couldn't look up the books. So, next time, I know to take my Kindle to make sure I remember what I'm looking for with this series.
