The book takes place in Iowa. Unfortunately, Hardingham has only one American accent in her repertoire, a Texas twang kind of a thing, and she doesn't even do it well. She was so bad and the accent was so out of place that it really distracted from the book.
So, book three stars. Narrator, one. Oh, and a little extra because one of the books she quoted opening lines from was Hiassen's Skinny Dip.
