Where does For the Love of Mike rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would give this series a 4.5/5. It is not epic, but the books have a continuity that binds them all together and progresses the series. The stories themselves are entertaining, solid, and the protagonist is a strong woman, but not without vulnerabilities. Mrs. Bowen portrays turn-of-the century New York with great detail and accuracy. The narrator is adept at all of the accents and definitely adds to the story. Though not the most compelling book I have ever listened to, it is worth the credit and is on par with the author's other works-- it is a classic mystery with an enjoyable story line and well defined characters.

This third instalment of the series is the best one so far.
Perhaps it’s because the plot in this book was better than in the 2 previous books? or maybe (by now) I feel as though I know the characters better, and have begun to like them more and more?
Although it’s all ever so slightly over the top, that’s part of its charm; it never seemed preposterous or silly to me because I was so wrapped up in the adventures.
I love the setting in the Turn of the Century New York City and Molly is becoming quite sympathetic to me. I look forward to her continuing evolution in future instalments.
