The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag

Abridged Audiobook

Last month, I listened to the abridged audio version of The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag and narrated by David Colacci. I'm finally writing my review for this novel now.

Listening time for The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag is 7 hours, 7 minutes.

I'm normally not a fan of listening to the abridged audio version of a novel as I prefer to listen to the unabridged audio version of a novel the way the author intended for readers to experience their writing... However, I accidentally purchased the abridged of The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag.

Despite The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag being abridged, I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I thought that David Colacci was a terrific narrator... Good narrators make one's listening experience that much more enjoyable. 

I also enjoyed the story, characters, and writing for The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag. There were a few scenes that had me laughing out loud, but mainly, I enjoyed the story and how it unfolded.

The following is the plot summary for The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag from Audible:
#1 New York Times Bestselling author Tami Hoag returns to the bestselling series of her career with a Kovac and Liska case that will delight fans and new listeners alike.
A murder from the past. A murder from the present. And a life that was never meant to be....
As the dreary, bitter weather of late fall descends on Minneapolis, Detective Nikki Liska is restless. After moving to the cold case squad in order to spend more time with her sons, she misses the rush of pulling an all-nighter, the sense of urgency of hunting a murderer on the loose. Most of all she misses her old partner, Sam Kovac. Sam is having an even harder time adjusting to Nikki's absence, saddled with a green new partner younger than pieces of Sam's wardrobe. Sam is distracted from his troubles by an especially brutal double homicide: a middle-aged husband and wife bludgeoned and hacked to death in their home with a ceremonial Japanese samurai sword. Nikki's case, the unsolved murder of a family man, community leader, and decorated sex crimes detective for the Minneapolis PD, is less of a distraction: twenty years later, there is little hope for finding the killer who got away.

On the other end of the spectrum, Minneapolis resident Evi Burke has a life she only dreamed of as a kid in and out of foster homes: a beautiful home, a family, people who love her, a fulfilling job. Little does she know that a danger from her past is stalking her perfect present. A danger powerful enough to pull in both Kovac and Liska and destroy the perfect life she was never meant to have.
I am giving The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!
