    The serenity of Hill Top Farm is shattered when a local shepherd is murdered. Beatrix, when she's not busy making friends with her fellow villagers, lends her insights to the investigation. Nationally best-selling author Susan Wittig Albert cleverly blends fact and fiction in this cozy mystery starring iconic author Beatrix Potter.

    Overall

    I got this audiobook thinking it was a China Bayles mystery and was disappointed at first when I found out otherwise. But I ended up really enjoying this story -- the story is engaging and well written and imaginative. Give it a try! It will make you smile.

    Captured on closed-circuit television: A man walks into an Oslo bank, puts a gun to a cashier’s head, and tells her to count to 25. When he doesn’t get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young woman dies—and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace.

    Story

    The story was riveting - the twists in the plot kept me guessing. The narrator has a low key, laid back style that seemed to complement to story line very well, and enhanced the plot in some of the tenser scenes of the story. I can't wait to read my next Harry Hole story!

    Story

    Set in New York City in 1938, Rules of Civility tells the story of a watershed year in the life of an uncompromising 25-year-old named Katey Kontent. Armed with little more than a formidable intellect, a bracing wit, and her own brand of cool nerve, Katey embarks on a journey from a Wall Street secretarial pool through the upper echelons of New York society in search of a brighter future.

    Story

    I felt like I had been transported 85 years into the past for the week or so that I listened to this story. The story was engrossing and vivid and I did not want it to end - both the writing and the narrating are absolutely charming.
