Unbelievable main character

The reader did an excellent job. The story was weak and annoying. A detective who is so busy reliving childhood memories rather than focusing on the current trauma of a missing child makes a very unlikeable character. And frankly the constant flashbacks detracted from the story rather than adding to it.

Good story should have been a full-length novel

A great story line that is just getting going when the last portion is concentrated into a short conclusion. This would have been wonderful had it been full length. I wanted all the details of the second half of the story. Having read other books by Melinda Leigh, she writes great full-length mysteries.

Sorry, but this is not a good review.

The narration was terribly annoying. The story itself was just ok, not up to Leigh:'s usual. I am really glad it was a sample because I couldn't have listened to it much longer. Sorry, but when I read a particular author I expect all of their work to be of the same quality.

Her Second Death

Was just getting into the story and it finished, really enjoyed it. Never read a short story by Melinda before, but it is nice for a change. The narration was very good, her writing has a way of drawing you in.

Short but excellent intro to series

Bree is a talented but new Homicide Detective, paired with a veteran partner. The case in question is fraught with twists and turns, and challenges Bree due it's similarity with her own past childhood trauma. It's a lot of plot and character development pack into just over an hour of audio book. Looking forward to more of the series.
