    I received a free copy of Key to Savannah: Made in Savannah Cozy Mysteries Series, Book 1 written by Hope Callaghan, and narrated by Valerie Gilbert in exchange for an unbiased review. This review copy Audio Book was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audio Book Boom.

    I found Key to Savannah to be an enjoyable cozy mystery. The story hooked me in in the first chapter, and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. The characters were fun and clever solving the mystery, and proving they can make it on their own after the mobster husband/father died. Valerie Gilbert did a wonderful job with each and every character.

    Mobsters can be such drama queens sometimes. Lennie's got her work cut out for her when the case of a missing brooch leads her straight into the underbelly of Chicago mob. Booze, deceit, threats...why, between the thugs and her overbearing Uncle - remarkably similar - Lennie's got a little too much to handle. Good thing she doesn't have a tendency to fib her way into deeper trouble, just as things are looking their bleakest. Oh wait. She does!

    I found "Risk the Queen" packed full of fun for such a short story. This quick talking, fast moving 20's style P.I. story kept my interest from beginning to end. This is a fun, and entertaining story that I will listen to again. Gracia Gillund did a wonderful job at keeping the story going, and clever with all the many voices.

    There's nothing like an old fashion wise cracking P.I. story to keep one entertained. Throw in a ghost and some humor, and you have the makings of a fun story. This is a story to be enjoyed and savored.

    The narrator G.M. Hague did an great job at keeping the story going at a good pace. I truly enjoyed my time listening to Dead Wrong.

    Deep in the forested hills of Hudson's Bay lays the quaint country farm town known as Sleepy Hollow. The area is also well known for being haunted by the Headless Horseman. This story is an adaptation of the 1820 original by Washington Irving. While trying to remain true to the style and flow of the original, the text has been edited and rewritten for the 21st-century listener by award-winning author Basil Sands, who also performed the narration.

    Despite the fact that the Garlucci family was not even in Savannah at the time the victim was murdered, they can't prove it. The other members of SAS are convinced the Garlucci family murdered one of their own while Carlita is convinced that someone is trying to frame them. Can the mother / daughter duo figure out who the real killer is, or will the police dig into Carlita's past and discover that she has her own share of secrets she's trying desperately to leave behind?

    The last thing archaeologist Zoey Kincaid needs is a 25-year-old letter carrying a message of doom. The letter, from her deceased mother, describes a dire set of occurrences on the banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. Unbeknownst to Zoey, her mother belonged to a select group of foretellers: people affected by tainted water who could see beyond normal timelines. Forced to dust the cobwebs from her own shadowy past, Zoey uncovers crimes, deception, and buried family secrets.

    I received a free copy of Peril in Paradise written by Deb Graham, and narrated by Ginger Walton in exchange for an unbiased review. This review copy Audio Book was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audio Book Boom.

    Where to begin? As the other reviewers stated this was not a mystery by any means of the definition. Now, I have always wanted to see Hawaii. A story about a Hawaiian cruise just sounded fun to me even without a true mystery involved, but the story just dragged on. I did enjoy parts about Hawaii, but I didn't care for the characters. They weren't believable to me. They said they traveled a lot, so I would have expected them to handle some of their situations differently. They acted like new travelers who didn't know how to handle certain situation when red flags were going off all over.

    The narrator I felt did a great job, and tried to put some excitement into the story, but there was just none to put in.

    Colleen Cross wrote a wonderful fun mystery. The quirky characters were amusing, and the story kept me quite engaged. How could it not?

Petrea Burchard did a wonderful job narrating, and I'm looking forward to listening to more from this author, and narrator.
