This installment in the series is very good. It continues the story from the first two books. I was impressed that Sabina's character continued to grow and change throughout the series. Sabina starts out as a loner who has to do things her way. She also blindly follows the authority of her grandmother. By the end of the book Sabina learns to share responsibilty and accepts help from friends. All three books are filled with action. The one thing I did not like about Sabina's character is that she always excepted the responsibilty for everything. Luckily her self esteem issues do not stop her from solving her problems and growing as a person. I strongly recommend that you read all three books in order. I passed on this series for a while before I decided to read it. If you are on the fence about buying it, get off the fence and buy the first book. You won't regret it.
Callahan Garrity is becoming a new favorite. To Live and Die in Dixie has likeable characters, believable plots and a fast pace. It's a great book to listen to while doing chores or driving to work.
I love Edna. She is a fiesty old lady. This is a great book and I wish the entire series was available on Audible.
Denise Swanson delivers another solid mystery to a great series. Skye is back with the rest of the Scrumble River characters. A health spa serves as a background to murder and mayhem. I enjoyed the plot line and the characters. I like the cliffhanger at the end. I look forward to my next trip to Scrumble River.
The last few books I have bought by new to me authors have bombed. But, I finally got lucky with this one.The characters are spunky, likeable, and believable. The story was well plotted and entertaining. The only thing I didn't like about it was the narrators voice. She did an okay job with the southern accent but her voice made some of the characters whiny. But overall, this is a very interesting and solid mystery. I bought the next book before I was finished listening to this one. If I like the others I might try Mary Kay Andrew's other books. I would definitely recommend this book.
This is my last Deva Dunne mystery. The characters are unbelievable and unlikable. I didn't care what happened to them because they didn't seem real. They were more like caricatures of stereotypes of people. The plot is weak and uninteresting. This is a waste of a good credit. I would not recommend this book.
This is an ok mystery, but very unrealistic. I can't believe most of the actions of the lead character. I also can't believe how much this story focused on money rather than the relationship between Marge and Gene. The narrator doesn't help. She sounds a bit too old for the characters and makes almost everyone sound whiny.
This is an interesting series with a unique heroine. The mystery is well plotted and the characters are interesting. There are some times when Christine missed obvious clues. What intrigues me about the book is the relationship between Christine and Jack. I find their relationship and Christine's behavior unrealistic. She leaves the convent and jumps into the modern world of dating without guilt. All Catholics suffer from guilt. It's who we are. I would still recommend the series to anyone who likes cozy mysteries with a little romance.
This is a fun, witty and interesting series filled with entertaining characters and a smidgen of drama. As always Skye gets involved personally with a mystery in her small town. There is a lot going on- the missing cat, the murder of her handyman and her relationships with two men. All of the storylines are nicely tied together and sorted by the end of the book. I do have a couple of problems with the plot. 1. Simon's refusal to talk to Skye about what happened while he was on vacation and 2. Giving away a large sum of money in this economy when Skye can barely pay for the repairs on her house. I found both to be unrealistic but I won't give anymore spoilers on that. I will say that Simon has got to be the most arrogant man in town and Skye is better off without him. This is a good read. I already bought the next book.
I wish more of this series was available in the audible library. I have listened to another book in this series and found it very good. Although I guessed the villain before I got to the end, I had no idea of a motive so I continued to listen to the end. This is an entertaining and interesting book with likeable chracters. As in all cozy mysteries, it has several twists and turns to keep the reader interested. I recommend this book to anyone who likes cozy mysteries.
I read a few reviews for this book and they seemed positive. It was quoted as being funny, with interesting characters and a quick read. I did not find the same in this book. The characters were mildly interesting and the pacing was slow. The mystery was typical with all of the formulaic points. The best part of the book was the first few pages. After the lead character finished talking about her exhusband, I lost interest in the book. The narrator didn't help. She mumbled at the end of sentences which made it difficult to follow the story. I can't recommend this book to anyone.
