Men and Dogs by Katie Crouch (audio review)
Hannah Legare finds herself back in her home town of Chareleston Harbor, South Carolina. Her marriage is in a shambles and her business that once thrived is now looking at failing in the economy. Taking time at home she starts to puzzle over the disappearance of her father that took place 20 years earlier. She feels that there never was closure to this man who was her dad, and Hannah starts asking questions around town digging up old hurts and old relationships. As she searches for answers, she slowly begins to find herself.
I had not read anything by Katie Crouch before but recall first becoming interested in her writing when I seen the book Girls In Trucks. Another snappy title, and a fun cover but one I have yet to read.
I know going into this review I am going to struggle. I listened to this on audio and I just found Hannah to be extremely unlikable. Her problems in her marriage were brought on by her and her habit of falling in bed with other men. She wined, she struggled with life, she was not a strong woman – and perhaps that is what bothered me most. (I like strong women characters – I always have).
I thought we would find some sort of closure as I listened to this read but honestly I never felt it. Hannah and her relationships with her family felt immature and I have to admit that for most of this audio I was just annoyed with this character. I took a lot of time to write this review but my opinion has not changed, I just didn’t like it.
I have not read other reviews but they must be out there and I will gladly connect to your review if you have written one and I would love to hear if you had a better experience with this read. The narrator was wonderful, and enjoyable, and I would still be interested in reading Girls In Trucks by this author.
I received this audio for review from Hachette Audio
