I have a great affinity for St. Mary's and the characters that populate it and it's environs. Jodi Taylor has me laughing out loud which can be rather inconvenient on a cramped long haul flight where most around me were sleeping up until that point.
However, despite my warm happy feelings of being back in the world of St. Mary's I can't help noticing that the author has forgotten to include a plot. Funny and lovable characters paired with intelligent, witty and at times hilarious dialogue can only stretch so far.
I hope Jodi Taylor will have a plot for her beautiful creations to tackle in their next outing.
Zara Ramm is the perfect narrator. Pure joy to listen to.

I truly feel so immersed in St. Mary's world that when the books are over I feel I have been shoved out of a Pod into a strange time/place and all I want to do is yell DOOR, fall back in, say 'Initiate Jump ".. And let the world go white.
Honestly, I am a constant Audible book listener 24/7 365 and when I see a St Mary's book come up on the pre order list, I am practically hopping on one foot until the moment it becomes available. I might actually have yelled at my phone to HURRY UP (but as there are no witnesses except my dog, I will deny it).
In other words, I strongly recommend this series. The characters, world building and plot are all exemplary.
Note to Jodi Taylor... Please write faster.

What did you like best about this story?
This installment had lots more close calls, a shifting of power and as usual tons of tea drinking. While our trio of Max, Petersen and Markham have had better days, we know they will make it right somehow in that St. Mary's fashion. The ending is a WALLOP and I can't wait for the next installment.
What about Zara Ramm’s performance did you like?
I thank Jodi Taylor for creating these characters but Zara Ramm brings them to life. She's added tenderness, charm and humor to Max and the rest of the gang at St. Mary's. Ms. Ramm is perfect.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
My anxiety levels flew with the last few chapters but in good St. Mary’s style at the end I had a good laugh.
Any additional comments?
It's always a privilege and an honor to follow the gang at St. Mary's on a new adventure. Then enjoy the entire series from the beginning because Max's insights to weight gain, tea drinking and finally married life are not to be missed.
