While Christine Morris is in Edinburgh for a conference, she learns that her estranged mother is missing and a murder suspect. So begins this Canadian crime writer's well-crafted mystery. Does Your Mother Know is part of Maureen Jennings' Christine Morris Mystery series. Caroline Shaffer's performance is gifted. She handles Scottish accents with aplomb, bringing to life the already vivid characters. Her pacing is gentle and her voice both sweet and earnest. Shaffer is a breeze to listen to, even for 10 hours.

Publisher's Summary

Christine Morris has been sent to Edinburgh to attend a conference on the latest in police methodology. There she is tracked down by the Northern Constabulary, Stornoway, Outer Hebrides, who inform her that her estranged mother has been involved in a vehicular homicide and has gone missing.

Reluctantly, Christine agrees to fly up to Stornoway, where her mother was last seen. Her arrival is followed by the suspicious death of one of the islanders. What unfolds is a deepening involvement in the life of the community, an unexpected reconnection with her mother, and a nefarious plot against one of the young princes, who is planning a visit to the island.

Set against the backdrop of a breathtaking landscape and a people who are fiercely proud of their traditional way of life, Does Your Mother Know? races along to a galloping finish in this complex tale of suspense.

Written in First Person

It could be me, I'm not a big fan of first-person narratives. It's a rare author that manages to get enough objective distance from her/his protagonist to get it right. This author made me wince with discomfort revealing a lack of insight or humor in over-long defensive monologues. I wanted to like it because of the setting, but gave up halfway.

Interesting accents

I throughly enjoy the twists and turns of the story line, however the accents led something to be desired at times

Very disappointing

I found the story quite ridiculous. It was free but I have still removed it from my library. Such a disappointment as I like the Tom Tyler books by this author.

A lovely book for winter nights

An intriguing story that has you hooked from start to finish. It gives you that curiosity to see wats in the next chapter.

Well narrated that also kept my interest.

Great engaging story but some very dodgy accents!

What did you like most about Does Your Mother Know??

The story is really well written and keeps you guessing to the end with lots of twists and turns.

What about Caroline Shaffer’s performance did you like?

The performance was great and she did a supberb job of differentiating the different characters. Although I have to say that a few of the accents were decidedly dodgy.

Not to bad

Found the story easy enough to listen to. The setting was formula from listening to other books. The story line had enough to keep you interested. Although some of the narration was a little annoying.
