What made the experience of listening to A Ransom for Two Roses the most enjoyable?
I thought that Lesley did an amazing job with all of the varied characters in the book. Her voice was so versatile and really made the author's characters come to life!
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the fact that the main character, Frankie, was flawed. She made some stupid judgement calls, but that's life. We all do that from time to time, so it made her real.
What does Lesley Parkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Lesley really brought the characters to life. The range of voices and accents was brilliant, and she has an easy quality about her voice. I will look for other books that she has narrated, and will certainly follow the rest of this series. I'm looking forward to the next book, The Plains of Waterloo.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, the ending was not expected. I don't want to give it away, but I didn't see that coming.
Any additional comments?
I thought the match between the author and narrator was a great choice, and really want to listen to the rest of the series.

My favorite genre - a British Isles detrctive book - disolves into 10 % mystery with 90% adolescent PMS littering the halls of senior homicide detection. Truly, the hysterical confusion of our lead cop, Frankie, is the only story told :-) This could have been a fine book... send the author out for coffee and let his subsequent books in this series be rewritten.
