What would have made The Fate of Mercy Alban better?
It wasn't intended to be funny, but laughed out loud when two charactersa are about to go into dark hidden corridors seeking a dangerous elusive deadly character, and one says to the other "Do you think we should call the police?"
What could Wendy Webb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Instead of the very predictable romance, maybe a female friend, old or new, could take the part of a supportive, possibly humorous sounding-board for story to be told to.
Did Kirsten Potter do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
There was a book-within-a-book, written 50 years apart by different authors, and both sounded identical in style and tone.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Some of the interplay between mother and teenage daughter rang true and made these two characters likable.

I was so hungry to hear the last bits and pieces of the tale! My hunger was satisfied! But now, I find myself struggling because I do not want to leave the company of these characters! Oh how I wish I could remain among them at the house, taking breakfast with them, chatting with Jane and developing friendship with all of them!
This is the third book I've listened to by this brilliant author and although I've enjoyed all of the, this may very well be my favorite! She is an amazing author, yes but some who write have a true gift for telling a story and I count her among the best! You can have anyone write a book, creating a story with a setting and characters to create the action, have a climax and an end. There is just so much depth here, detail, not so much feeling as it is pure emotion with that you experience with them! I could almost smell the coffee & hearty breakfasts, taste the wine, feel the warmth of the fire as I curled up next to Amity and her Mother. I want to go to this house and live out the rest of my days there!
Great story! So worth giving it a listen!
