More Mystery, Less Relationship Drama

I enjoy mystery and suspense, but can due without the gory details. That's why I really enjoyed the Peyton Brooks' Mysteries Box Set and thought I'd really enjoy the Peyton Brooks, FBI Box Set. Unfortunately, instead of being about a young female crime solver who is sought-after by the FBI, it's more about the tenuous relationship she has with her whiny fiance. I found this to be incredibly tedious and became so annoyed I had to stop listening mid-way through the 3rd book. If you're into relationship drama this books for you. If you're looking for an intriguing mystery novel you're going to want to look elsewhere.

Enjoyed

I listen to these while at work during the day, these help my day progress pretty contently (if that's a word). I became invested in the characters after I learned to adjust to the narrator. I don't really like the narrator. I don't like her using accents...sometimes the Marco/Peyton situation became annoying, but maybe cause I know folks like that in real life..Anyway, if you like entertaining stories that move along nicely, where you may be able to picture the characters. I recommend this

Utter waste of a credit

Nancy Drew/The Hardy Boys try to do D.D. Warren/Harry Bosch
(And fail, miserably.)

I'm all about flawed characters but the characters in these story lines are flat out cartoonish and without depth. I have tired for six hours to find something about any of the characters that is even slightly appealing and just can't.

At the core, Peyton is whiney, with no back bone.

The characters built around her, the support cast so to speak, so over the top cartoonish the whole thing feels like a 9th grader is writing a back yard play about something they think they have a working knowledge of but really have no clue how the real world works, how adults interact. The stereo types that flood the story lines is just mind boggling. A quick google search shows the author is a high school English teacher and it shows in the writing style...or lack thereof...in the story lines and character building.

Narration is seriously lacking.
The narrator doesn't have enough range in skill for the amount of character voices needed. The inflections, accents and cadence are grating on the ears. Fact is, the narrator doesn't have much to work with in the characters so it was a stab in the dark to find enough range to assign each character something distinct enough so they each each stand alone in the narration. The stereotyping the author used in the characters is about the only thing the narrator has to use to get a sense of the characters and sadly, they grabbed that with gusto and took the stereotyping of each character over the top in the narration.

Entertainment at its best

I feel like I know all of the characters. Payton Brooks series are interesting, funny and suspenseful. Can’t wait to read more of her adventures.

Horrible

Books are terrible. Both content and narration. Children’s stories would be more interesting. Sorry but this waste not money well spent.

Terrible accents and a little harsh on the ear

I have enjoyed the series however there are two points that have grated through the narration:

1) the narrator has a very harsh voice on the ear, she is unable to do accents and can be very stilted when reading out, to the detriment of the characters.

2) the writer has a very peculiar take on English customs, the language used to portray English characters and has obviously just done a very basic read up from an internet page that held dubious content. I won’t go into how she dealt with the no gun policy...

Her style is easy lostening

A+ apart from the English accents.

Loved these books.
But, one of the worse English accents I have ever heard! practice definitely needed.

Not to be taken too seriously

Whilst I agree with the scathing review I have to admit to enjoying these series. Yes unrealistic and simplistic but good fun too and the characters are well drawn if a bit too stereotypical. It’s really more chick lit than crime fiction but it keeps me entertained.

Wasted my credit

This book is the reason why it took me so long to get auditable. The narration was robotic, characters sounded pathetic and storyline really really bad. I wasted my credit on this box set!!!

So poor

I have listened to over a 100 audiobooks and this must be the worst.
Poor sometimes laughable narration and story lines a amateur could write. I purchased the 6 book set and will never start number two unless I am stranded on an island with no other contact. Even then it might be easier to take my life

Narrator problem

I thought this was going to be a bargain, 62 hours for 1 credit but sadly not. Every time I started to listen the tone of the narrators voice put me off, so after 4 hours I’ve given up. The storyline sounded good though so it’s a shame

Accents are so terrible and some or research on London

The terrible accents were so off-putting. In the UK, we don’t finish every sentence with mate and London Fog is not a thing.
The story is obscured by the presenter but good series.
