♥ Story ♥
I think just about every character in this story is a Stray in one way or another. The story takes place in Sunshine, Colorado which has a small town/touristy vibe. There is deep history that is at the root of things. A lot of closet to shake out skeletons.
Jon ❤ Erin
Jon Miles’ father is the one who betrayed the the town of Sunshine, but Jon is the one paying the price. He has inherited his father’s shares of the company and wants to undo the wrongs to prevent more damage to the local area. He knows it’s not going to be easy, but things get tricky as the secrets start to spill out.
Erin Timms is trying to make her dreams come true, despite her current and past set backs. She is trying to save up to buy the Vet clinic she works for, but the boss’s daughter is trying her patience and making her question her decisions. Jon brings an injured stray to Erin at the clinic and all of their lives are forever changed, including the dog.
The large number of subplots are a doubled edged sword to me. They are set up, explained, then solved, nothing is left “unanswered”. I just need more! Just a little bit, to make it feel complete. Its not a biggie kind of issue, just keeps it from being a five stars listen for me. I’m going to forever wonder about Minerva’s health and if Mrs. P. ever found Maharajah?! Not to mention the question poised at the end as to how? Can’t really say more but when you get to the Epilogue, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Doesn’t change the outcome of anything, it just perplexes the mind!

♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Stray has Two(2) Narrators:
Jeffrey Kafer & Sierra Kline.
Jeffrey Kafer was great. Both with voices as well as the general story narration. He did drop the ball a couple of times with Mrs. P. if she was sharing the scene with Jon. Jeffrey is an excellent performer with a long list of titles. This is not my first, nor my last. Several of his titles are on my wish-list.
➖ & ➖
This was my first listen by Sierra Kline. She was great at evoking the emotions. I would listen to more titles performed by her.
♥ Audio Production ♥
The original speed was not consistant. Some chapters seemed slow with others being a bit too fast. I ended up settling on @ 1.05 speed. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
