Publisher's Summary

Being an undercover poison taster for the rich and famous might sound glamorous, but for Isobel Avery it means stomaching bad clients and even worse coffee. Join her as she protects the sexy client she'd like to strangle, dodges the terrifying loan shark, and hunts down the bad guy.

A fresh and funny romantic mystery series about a witty, down-to-earth heroine with a job you've never seen before.

Please note: As shown in the sample, the Australian heroine is not given an accent in this audiobook. This decision was made because the series is set in the US, and early listeners found it easier to listen to and get immersed in the story without continually switching between accents.

    Story
    "A humorous & fun cozy mystery"

    The premise to this series is so intriguing & I love to go "behind the scenes" of a poison taste testers world. I also really enjoyed the chemistry & banter between Izzy & Conner, plus the addition of Etta as a character was brilliant!
    I was a little bummed that Izzy didn't have an Australian accent.. this was compounded by the fact that her roommate Oliver was British & he had a British accent. So if Izzy is Australian, why does she have no accent at all? It was just strange, but not a deal breaker. The narration was done well & really brought all the characters to life.
    I was provided this audiobook & voluntarily reviewed it.

    "Relax and hear a great story!"
    Where does Eat, Pray, Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Mmm, it's my first! So that would rank it at the top...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Izzie ofcourse. She is great!


    What does Nikiya Palombi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Difficult question. I actually like reading better as that is much faster. But, if that is not an option, this audio book is the best. I disliked her voice of Connor at first, but it grew on me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I love this book. It's meant to be funny so no, I did not cry.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    Story
    "A Fun ride"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, but it's an interesting premise. That's the first thing that caught my eye. A professional taste-tester turned amateur sleuth. How does that not catch your eye?


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nikiya's reading was decent. However, the main character is supposed to be Austrailian but there isn't a hint of an accent. This annoyed me throughout the book because it was mentioned often and was one of Isobel's defining characteristics. That said, the accents that were given to the other characters--including some accents that came out of nowhere and didn't make sense--were not very good, so that may be why she opted out of doing Isobel's.


    Any additional comments?

    Isobel is very immature for her age. I liked her overall, but the only way I could continue reading the series would be if she grew more as a character in the subsequent books. She didn't take her job very seriously even though she was in desperate need of cash and the job in question involved ingesting poison so that it doesn't kill the person you're hired to protect. I'm all for a strong, smart-mouthed female character--they're my favorites--and I know the book was supposed to be funny, but there's a thin line between quirky and annoying and a few times Isobel crossed it. Fortunately, it was only a few times.

    I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily reviewed this story.

    "So fun!"

    This book was so much fun! It is a light-hearted, slightly outlandish mystery which kept me thoroughly entertained, and Nikiya Palombi's performance made the whole experience come to life!

    Story
    "Poison taste tester"
    What did you love best about Eat, Pray, Die?

    A great story must consist of an array of odd ball characters with a mystery to solve and a smidgen of romance thrown in before nearly being poisoned or shot to death is a must to keep me entertained. This story had an abundance of that. I found myself just wondering if some high profile people have a taste tester to some extent. In some gossip magazine an actor has had someone check the seafood to make sure it wasn't off. So I guess the concept isn't too far fetched.


    What does Nikiya Palombi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    While I loved the book. I actually didn't enjoy listening to it. I felt the narrator was very monotone and I had a hard time keeping my interest. It was becoming dull and boring. Except I was interested enough to want to read more. So I actually turned over to the ebook instead and read the rest. I have also continued with the books but not in audio.

    "Decent story. Need of new narrator"

    An Australian heroine needs an Australian accent. Really! I just couldn't get into the story or even hear the advertised humor. It's just off-kilter when the accents don't belong and the narrator has a rather flat affect. At least she can read without sounding like she just learned the craft. Story is okay, and the premise interesting. Doubt if I'll follow the series. Didn't do much for me.

    "This was a nice change for me"

    I always love mysteries in suspense novels, but have never read one that is a little on the comedic side. I will definitely check out more from this author
