    Where does Murder of a Chocolate-Covered Cherry rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This whole series is great, characters you like, mysteries that keep you guessing . I wish the first books in the series had an audible version.


    What about Christine Leto’s performance did you like?

    Solid performance again and again.

    A body in a pool of skim milk. An unsavory discovery at any time, but especially inconvenient when the milk puddle is in front of the espresso machine the very morning you're scheduled to open your chic suburban coffee house, Uncommon Grounds. AND the body is one of your partners, leaving you and your other partner - the one who's still alive - as suspects. Which would all be bad enough, even if your husband HADN'T just dumped you for his dental assistant....

    School psychologist Skye Denison reluctantly agrees to act as maid of honor in her California cousin's over-the-top platinum-style wedding - and is also expected to assist the control-freak wedding planner. But when Skye discovers the planner dead, just one week before the big event, Skye is suddenly working double-duty.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder of a Wedding Belle to be better than the print version?

    I would not wish wedding planning on anyone especially for Skye's cousin Belle. As always Scumble River is full of great characters and I feel like I know them.

    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Love the Royal Spyness Series and this one adds the delight of a small english town and an old fashioned Christmas. Love the characters and write down many of the "english'isms". Can't wait for the next Royal Spyness book.

    When school psychologist Skye Denison stumbles over the body of pushy Promfest chairperson Annette Paine during a Halloween fundraiser, it looks like a clear-cut case of promicide. Annette was not the only prom mom desperate to see her daughter crowned queen. But she was also wearing the same witch costume as Skye, so which witch was the intended victim?

    What made the experience of listening to Murder of a Royal Pain the most enjoyable?

    This one is so good, and hard because it shows a vunerable side of Skye yet the mystery is great and I've listened several times.
