Reread by audiobook. I also read the library paperback. This narrator, I'm thinking she might be the problem with this audiobook because I didn't enjoy it as much as when I read the book. There's a narrator change with book two, but I don't know if it's for the better.

Previous review on 06/02/10This is a 3.5 stars. The writing is okay. There's a LOT of similarities between her and Patricia Briggs' Mercedes books. A LOT. But this book was published before Patricia Briggs' so I'm not taking anything away from C.E. Murphy. Her problem though is that I can't help the comparison in the writing. Joanne is funnier than Mercedes but not by much. I love Gary, Morrison and Billy. I was going to immediately read #2 and #3 but I'm going to hold off and put a couple of books in between because it didn't hold my interest that much. Overall the book is pretty good and I feel sorry for Ms. Murphy because of the obvious comparisons.
