AudioBook Review: Stars Overall: 4 Narration: 4 Story: 4

There is a particular flavor to stories that feature small towns in the south, and Kudzu is no different. Told from the perspective of Casey, who moved into her grandmother’s old house to lick wounds, she discovers an old diary and is transported to live her grandmother’s life.

Far from being a smoothly comfortable trip, Casey finds murder; intrigue and a mystery to solve that may actually help her to modify events to make her time better.

***I was give a copy of the audiobook in return for an honest review.

This book was a pleasure from start to finish. The way it is presented, with time travel and present day had visions of a movie going through my mind. You are able to visualize what the community was like 100 years ago and how it has evolved. With the underlying supernatural theme, and the romance between Casey and Lee, you will find an enjoyable listen. Lee Ann Howlett does the perfect narration for this, creating a world that

I enjoyed the Audio version of Kudzu. The smooth southern voice brought authenticity to the story written by Kathleen Walls. She has a delightful way to her descriptive writing style that builds a picture, transporting you through time. This period correct novel brings the old world to life as you learn of the greed that transcends the generations. I could see Kudzu done as a movie; it had all the elements that a good story should, unforgettable characters, romance, greed, danger, and love all w ...more

I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had just read it. The story was okay.It is about Casey, who has escaped after a divorce to a mountain cottage left to her by her grandmother. She starts developing a relationship with her closest neighbor, a scholar that is a specialist in kudzu, a plant common to the area. Casey finds her grandmother's diary and is transported back to her grandmother's life as a young woman. Sh

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I really wanted to like this...I like a mystery, I like some supernatural elements, and I like romance...this just didn't do it for is an interesting story and the relationship between..Casey and Lee is sweet....but the narration was not great and I got bored at times....just not my cup of tea! Probably would have really liked it if I just read the actual book itself!

Thank You, Audiobookblast(dot)com
