I really, really enjoyed this book! There were some surprises at the end and I didn't see them all coming. I liked the main character a lot and the narration was very well done. Bravo!

Really enjoyed this book!

Once again Kelley Armstrong has wonderfully fleshed out main characters who are interesting and likeable. I enjoyed the story and would love to see Gen/Lucy and Marco in another book!

I enjoyed listening to this book. I like the books that jump back and forth between what was and what is, it makes you listen harder and try and figure it out as each new nugget of information is revealed. The main character becomes someone you start to cheer for as he is a good person in spite of himself!

I enjoyed the story

I thought the story was well written after a slow start but I agree with all the people who disliked the narrator and her pronunciation. One reviewer said she sounded Canadian, no way, don't blame any Canadian for those pronunciation issues, in fact the director of the audio performance should have caught the problems, the most glaring is the word ate, pronounced et. Anyway, I was able to get into the story and book once I tried not to be annoyed at the narration. I am going to continue with the series and I noticed that the narrator changes after the third (?) book which will, hopefully, be an improvement.

I was thoroughly engrossed in this book. I liked the way it took the characters and told of the story from their perspective, it worked very well. I found the story to be sad but with hope and happiness there too,

So worth the wait

I love the characters in these books, and Louise Penny shows that you don't need shock value to have a great murder mystery. I often think if I drive into the Eastern Townships I will somehow come across Three Pines although it is a fictional town, so powerful are the characters and descriptions.
Gamache is always thoughtful and kind, the kind of person I wish there were more of in this crazy world we live in.
I liked the social media thoughts in this book, the good, the bad and the ugly of it. Very timely.Excellent through and through

I quite liked this book and will try the next one in the series. I thought the characters need a bit more fleshing out but it kept me reading. I think the narrator did a fairly good job, I would have given 3 and a half stars if I could, I cant quite put my finger on it but I would like a bit more of something subtle and a bit less of careful description, of that makes any sense,.

Kept me interested and I loved the main characters

I wasn't sure what to expect, I picked it because of the narrator , I think Ray Porter always does an excellent job. I enjoyed the characters and the story, it was a fun book that kept my interest all the way through, I was right there with them wondering about room 14! I will try another book by this author for sure.

Fabulous!! I loved it!!

I was eagerly awaiting this book and it was every bit as a wonderful as I thought it would be! I love the characters of Strike and Robin, they are so well depicted, so real and vibrant. I loved the story, I loved the narration. Even though it was 22 hours long it seemed to go by so quickly and as soon as it was done I wanted more!
