4.45/5 Stars: An Improper Death by Paula Paul

Please note, this cover is different than the audiobook.

Read by Deborah Greenfield

Run time: 7 hrs and 54 minutes

Summary:

An admiral washes up dead wearing inappropriate attire and pretty much everybody’s wondering whodunit.

Additional Comments:

  • Dr. Alexandra Gladstone wants to run an autopsy, but the local constable seems dead set against the idea.
  • Characters 4.5/5 stars: Charming cast that revolves around a curious doctor, a literal nosy Nancy, an angry young man, a quiet victim, and an intrepid barrister
  • Plot 3.5/5: It kind of meanders. It’s not bad in audio form, but I can see it being annoying to read. There’s not much action.
  • Performance 4/5: Characters are distinguishable.
  • Mystery’s conclusion 4.5/5: Typical but satisfactory.
  • I added a random half point because no matter how slowly a story unfolds, a satisfying end can erase many wrongs.

Conclusion:

I didn’t read book 1 and didn’t really need to. It’s a standalone mystery with interesting characters.
