    Los Angeles Police Detective Peter Decker had grown very close to Rina's young sons, Sammy and Jake, as he had to their mother, and he looked forward to spending a day of his vacation camping with the boys. A nice reprieve from the grueling work of a homicide cop - until Sammy stumbles upon a gruesome sight.

    I love this series so far. I feel I am learning so much about Jewish Orthodoxy while being entertained by very believable and exciting plots. BUT, I wish it wasn't so sexually graphic. I've decided to download the next in the series because I really do like the characters and I love murder mysteries. We'll see. . .

    Charles Lenox, Victorian gentleman and armchair explorer, likes nothing more than to relax in his private study with a cup of tea, a roaring fire and a good book. But when his lifelong friend Lady Jane asks for his help, Lenox cannot resist the chance to unravel a mystery. Prudence Smith, one of Jane's former servants, is dead of an apparent suicide. But Lenox suspects something far more sinister: murder, by a rare and deadly poison.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Beautiful Blue Death to be better than the print version?

    N/A


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat, but I always wanted to see what would happen next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I thinks the budding romance scenes. I enjoy the old fashioned purity where love is slow to be realized and strong emotional urges are held in check.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    People say its "cozy" like it's a bad thing. I truly enjoyed this book and I am about ready to download the next one.

    As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

    Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a 12-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery.

    Amazon Customer says: "A near-flawless audiobook (but for one thing...)"
    "Either love it or hate it."
    Overall

    It looks like people either love this book or hate it. It took me over 8 hours of listening to decide I'm part of the second group. The writing is excellent, even if it does have some language (for those of you who listen in the car with kids!) I just didn't like the ending. I gave it a 3 because it really is a well-written book.
