Deeply disappointed by the severe abridgement of this story. Several key elements of the mystery were chopped. Stick to the real book or the ebook rather than this abridged version.
On the positive side, the reader's voice was delightful!
I bought this book specifically because I had a mundane task to do that would take 3 hours. The reader did an excellent job with characters and accents, the book was a nice light read, and filled the required time-slot.
But, this book was almost too short. I couldn't help but feel the romance would have been sweeter, and the characters a little more sympathetic had this not been chopped down so much. The romance was there, it certainly wasn't a unique or grand romance (just the usual types of plot devices that one sees in many romances), but I didn't expect much more than this. I think I might rather have spent my book credit on something with a little more substance. But if you are looking for a fast and light listen, then this is your book.
(A warning -- main characters in this book are followers of the the ancient order of Vanza, so if you are a stickler for "keeping it real", you might find this little add on of supernatural-kung-fu-meets-mysticism all a little goofy.)

I have enjoyed most of Amanda Quick's work...I just wish this one wasn't abridged.
