Publisher's Summary

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht and she's not afraid to use it!

After several months of cruising Mexico's hauntingly beautiful Sea of Cortez, Hetta's in Puerto Escondido, a place once described by author John Steinbeck as "a magic harbor". Anchored out, swaying on the hook at the whim of breeze and tide, surrounded by magnificent views and turquoise water can be magical. Stuck at anchor alone? Not so much.

So when her best friend, Jan, gets them an invite to a party at a nearby luxury resort hosted by a Japanese businessman - all expenses paid - Hetta figures, why not? Why turn down an evening of free food and booze? And besides, what could possibly go wrong?

With Hetta involved? Plenty.

Not only are she and Jan soon up to their necks in hot sake, a succession of unsavory intruders sends Hetta scurrying for a safe harbor, but not before she reaches the conclusion that some folks just need killin'.

    "Fabulous"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Just Needs Killin' to be better than the print version?

    Equal editions. With the audio, someone else tells you what is happening. When I read it myself, it plays out in my head!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Just Needs Killin'?

    Anything with Po Thang.


    Which character – as performed by Stevie Puckett – was your favorite?

    I think Jan as I always figured Hetta's voice was deeper than that.

    Story
    "I love Hetta Coffe"
    Would you listen to Just Needs Killin' again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to it again. The story is a great continuation of the Hetta Coffee series. It's lighthearted and fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy getting to know the characters. I also love learning about the Sea of Cortez and its history.


    What three words best describe Stevie Puckett’s voice?

    Shrill
    Consistent
    Fair


    Who was the most memorable character of Just Needs Killin' and why?

    Definitely Hetta. The other characters are always peripheral to her. without Hetta there would be no story.


    Any additional comments?

    Stevie Puckett's voicing of Jan is too shrill and hard to listen to. Otherwise she does a good performance of the book.

    Story
    "Another great book from Jinx Schwartz"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book, and the complete Hetta Coffey series.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    IMO the narrator's voice for Jan was way over played...too high, squeaky, and out of character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have a hard time putting down any of the books in this series, but also hate when they end.
