After reading the reviews for Metro Girl, the book, I wasn't sure what to expect. In contrast, the audio book gets high marks.
I've read most of the Stephanie Plum books, missing just a couple between the number books, and have to say those have been deteriorating miserably after the first two.
Barney Barnaby is a breath of fresh air. Smart and witty, Barney's concerned about her flaky brother and goes to Miami from frigid Baltimore after getting a mysterious call from him in the middle of the night.
I love CJ Critt as the reader and has previously read One for the Money and probably other Evanovich books. She does a nice job giving characters voices without over acting like some can, yet each is unique.
I've never looked to these books to change the world, but they're entertaining enough to keep me listening. I'm getting tired of Stephanie Plum getting into more hijinks and not deciding between Ranger or Morelli and frankly wish there was someone else on her radar, or maybe join Barney in Miami.
