    Interior decorator Deva Dunne never dreamed she'd see a Monet hanging on someone's dining room wall. Then she snags a client with two Monet seascapes. Her thrill lasts until she finds one of the paintings missing, cut from its frame, and the cook shot dead. Rough-around-the edges, but gorgeous all-around police lieutenant Victor Rossi insists Deva leave the sleuthing to the police. But what could it hurt to come up with a list of suspects that doesn't include her? Then Deva finds another victim....

    Story
    Where does The Monet Murders rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have to be honest here, I haven't heard that many--I usually read my books but audio is a new and fun experience for me.


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

    Absolutely! As an amateur artist myself, I was intrigued with the theft of a real Monet and where the thief had stashed it. And when the killer was on Deva Dunne's heels I was right there, scared to death with her, every step of the way.


    Have you listened to any of Gayle Hendrix’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I loved when she narrated the first book in the series, Designed for Death. That's what made me buy this one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Monets can be murder!


    Any additional comments?

    Just that I hope this author writes another Deva Dunne mystery. I love that Deva's an interior decorator and sleuthing murder mysteries aat the same time in the most unlikely places. The books are fun to read--and to listen to!

    Interior designer Deva Dunne's latest project comes to a screeching halt when blood on the carpet leads her to the body of her client, an exotic dancer with a mysterious past. But the murdered woman is not the only resident of the posh beachfront condominium with secrets, and investigating officer Lieutenant Victor Rossi considers them all suspects.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Designed for Death the most enjoyable?

    The story intrigued me, first of all. Loved the idea of an interior designer out solving crime. And the voice of Gayle Hendrix was excellent. She didn't just read, she enacted the book, changing her voice for the various characters, speaking the dialogue as if she were on stage. Thoroughly enjoyable all around.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Designed for Death?

    Oh the ending, by far. The Florida hurricane and apprehending the murderer came together as a perfect storm.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hmmm, probably the several scenes at the Foxy Lady. I've never been to a kinky bar, so to experience it in writing was great fun.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The devil's in the details, and this devil's out to kill.


    Any additional comments?

    Designed for Death is a tongue-in-cheek look at murder, and the audio version brought out both the fun and the fury in this story.
