Any additional comments?

This is a very slow moving book.The plodding of the story nearly made me give up on it.Lisa Angelini does a very dry reading,sometimes it sounds like she is recording in a can.Abby takes her son on holiday to try to work through her husbands death.She is a police woman.On the island her son finds bones and a story of other bones,murder and betrayal plays out.s.l.o.w.l.y...
There is a lot of disbelief by many people in this book.The back and forth repetitive observances surrounding this is at times unbearable.This audiobook was provided to me at no cost for a fair and honest review

Complex Mystery Thriller

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would to some one who likes this genre. It is a complex mystery thriller.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hibiscus Fruit: Where Grief Leads to Murder in Paradise?

When the children were rescued from the traffickers.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

It was a bit monotone at times. There could of been more tone inflections and variances in the characters voices.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was not an all in one sitting listen.

Any additional comments?

The book has a bit of a slow start and drags a bit initially. Bear with it as the book gets more interesting.

Also there are are too many distractions in the story which do not apply to the actual story. I'm thinking that the extra information and distractions such as who murdered Abby's domestic partner and the Bone Killer serial killer will be further developed and put to rest in subsequent volumes of the series.

Sweeping aside the distractions and the parts that drag, this is a fairly decent mystery thriller. It is through sure serendipity and good fortune that the villain is identified and caught as there was almost another victim.
