Superlative Narration of a Flawless Book
Would you consider the audio edition of Dair Devil to be better than the print version?
I can't say that the audio edition of this book is better than the print one, because without the perfect story to begin with, the narration couldn't be as good. The author's work and the narrator's perfectly compliment each other and make for a magnificent audio book.
What did you like best about this story?
Can I say everything? Seriously, from beginning to end this book captivated me. I loved hearing more about characters from previous stories, but also getting to know new characters. The story lines flowed easily and steadily and each character's interaction with another made sense. Some relationships were tense, others lighthearted, but all of them were written beautifully, and so well that you either loved them, or hated them.
What about Alex Wyndham’s performance did you like?
Alex has a voice like silk, his normal narrative voice is smooth, and perfectly understandable. He comes into his own when he starts putting voices to the characters though. Each and every one, from the deep voiced men, to the high voiced women are so good that at times you forget that it's just one man doing all the voices. In this particular book, although Alex does the perfect English gentleman voice, it was a real treat and a novelty to hear him do a West Country accent for the members of the Banks family. I couldn't help but smile at not only the great voice interpretation, but also the scenes written by the author about the family.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
You Can't Judge a Book by its Cover.
Any additional comments?
Before I listen to new audio edition books by Lucinda Brant and narrated by Alex Wyndham, I cross my fingers that I will enjoy listening to it as much as I have previous books written and narrated by them. I know I love Lucinda's books, and that Alex performs them marvelously, but I worry that perhaps this time I might just end up listening to the same old same old. BUT how wrong I am every single time. Each book tells a fabulous story, and Alex continues to bring something new to each book every time. I should trust the perfect combination of Lucinda and Alex because I can't see them ever letting their readers/listeners down.

Another Lucinda Brant winner
This was also a very well written book with some very funny scenes especially at the very beginning of the story. Sorry to have to wait for the release of the next book in the series especially since I found no information regarding it on Audible. The second book still remains my favorite and then the Midnight Marriage but this is not to take away from Dair Devil. I felt LB did a fabulous job developing the new characters and yet mixing the old ones in this story as well, making the book feel more personal to its readers. I truly enjoyed this book and recommend it highly to anyone looking for substance and not fluff.

The narration is the star
It was good to get back together with previous characters. The "break in" at the beginning was hilarious.
The narration of this series is wonderfully well done. Brings out so much of the story.
My only question is where is Mary's book?
