    Description

    Joan Hess, highly acclaimed author, is known for her wonderful sense of the bizarre and talent for spinning a web of intrigue. She perpetually packs her unique mystery series with murder and mayhem in the not-so-sleepy town of Maggody, Arkansas.

    Maggody Police Chief Arly Hanks is all shook up when she hears that her mother collapsed during a pilgrimage to Graceland and is in a Memphis hospital. Another member of the tour is pushed to her death from a hotel balcony. A prominent Maggody citizen stands accused of the murder. Arly's suspicious mind tells her to snap into action--it's now or never--before the touring residents of Maggody are returned to sender ... in a hearse.

    Voicing the perfect amount of wit and satire along with the fast-paced dialog, narrator C.J. Critt gives listeners a real treat, as this mystery spins out of control and back again.

    Return to Maggody.

    Funniest Yet!

    A friend of mine turned me on to Joan Hess' Arly Hanks series some time ago and I was more than delighted to find a few of them here on Audible.com.

    "Misery Loves Maggody" is one of the funniest Maggody books yet. I was laughing so hard the tears ran down my face. If you love some great humor with your mysteries, I highly recommend this book (series). Also, the narration by CJ Critt is superb!

    Love the book. Not the reading.

    My grandparents were from the south. My great uncle was from Arkansas. C.J. Critt is a well respected reader, but she makes all the characters in Maggody Arkansas sound like they're from Wisconsin! Its so jarring to hear southern phrasing with a Midwest accent that I can barely manage to listen, even though this is one of my favorite series.

    Choppy and hard to follow.

    Would you listen to another book narrated by C. J. Critt?

    Not sure.

    Was Misery Loves Maggody worth the listening time?

    It wasn't a bad story but it did not flow at all which made it difficult to follow as well as frustrating at times.

    Not much character development

    This is my first exposure to the Maggody series. I knew it would be a light and humorous read, but the character development was full of negative stereotypes like the southern fundamentalist preacher and the collector of velvet Elvis portraits. The narrator seems to use a Wisconsin accent for some characters although I think the women are all from the south. It really hasn't held my attention either as a mystery or as humor.

    Awful - horrible waste of time

    What would have made Misery Loves Maggody better?

    I never write reviews and hesitate to write only when I dislike something but this was truly awful. Uninteresting characters; horrible dialog; the story built around an event we can't care about, etc. I'm sorry there is a refund option.
