Yet again, Charline Harris and friends provide thrilling short stories that make you pause to listen.
This is a book of the good the ok and the boring...
Not all the pieces in this book were to my taste but I still enjoyed the overall..
Anthologies like this are always great at introducing new authors that you wouldn't necessarily read..
I'll be returning this, and that makes me sad. I really enjoyed the stories, but it took some effort to dig them out from under the narration.
Kate Rudd seems to have only the one character voice, making all the strong female characters sound the same, even when she's using a strong accent. Paired with an awkward cadence, the effect is something like having Christopher Walken reading all the male leads in an anthology. It would certainly be... distinctive, but may not be right for all listeners.
Todd Haberkorn does much better with his part, with the only notable exception being his portrayal of Sister Hepsebah in the second story. A woman so sultry and beautiful that she can tempt a basically decent boy into doing terrible, terrible things to others is portrayed with a voice better suited to a decrepit crone.
With that said, I'm going to purchase this as an ebook instead.

A mess, this group of stories was horrible to try and follow. Disjointed stories, I love Charlaine Harris books, this though was so disappointing.
