I listened to the audio book. I have to admit that my attention waxed and waned. Sometimes it was quite good and had me laughing out loud, enjoying the character development and getting a better glimpse at a character it took me a while to warm up to from the Outlander series. I did, eventually, warm up to him, though. It's nice to see a less uptight and more human John here. The characters, the historical settings, the dialog, and the narrator were the things that engaged me. The mystery? Not so much.

Elvie Doll They skew more mystery than her Outlander books, but there's much more character emphasis than in many mysteries. And, John doesn't intend to get wrapped up in mysteries. They just seem to happen to him. Poor guy. LOL

Suz That seems to be the case so far, with this one. I'm enjoying the narrator, too.

Elvie Doll <3 me some John Woodman! I was hooked as soon as he read the name of John's club and had that RP hard 's' in Appreciation, rather than the 'sh'. LOL

Suz hahaha Yeah, I like the narrator for this. I like his voice for John better than Divina Porter's voice for him. John seems more approachable. Of course it could just be that whenever John appears in the Outlander series he's either upset, defensive, guarded, jealous, or pining.
