Listeners are swept into the wacky world of Los Angeles greeting card artist Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley--Wollie--and her paranoid-schizophrenic brother, P.B., who resides at Rio Pescado, a mental hospital. Deanna Hurst's engaging and sensitive reading embodies Wollie, who manages to deal with a murder, the Mafia, an appealing but mysterious love interest, and a killer in the course of this story. She also tries to date 40 guys in 60 days to earn $5,000 as part of a research project. Hurst keeps the action moving at a fast pace and the quirky characters realistic. Her performance reflects the story's humor as well as its dramatic ebb and flow. Overall, Hurst is well suited to this romantic mystery. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
