๏ ๏ ๏  My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏ 


The narration by Katherine Littrell was fantastic...she did a perfect southern debutante accent.  She's also mastered the art of inflecting her voice with a different cadence for inner dialogue.  This is something of which many narrators need to improve on.  I might not have liked this as much as I did if it not for the narration, I've could have gotten bored with some of the slower sections of the story...I'll never know for sure?

While the mysteries within are not as complex or as sinister as JLB's Naturals Series, I still found them to be adequate.  For the gentrified Southern Setting the mysteries fit quite perfectly.  I found the characters refreshing, and I loved that they weren't all super-catty, to the point of being nasty...I think I thought they would be.  Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this story.  One thing I didn't know...this has a second book.
