Amy Wellington is about to get married and she couldn't be more miserable.
Sure, she loves Peter Johnson, but the problem is her mother, Pepper. Amy hasn't spoken to her in over a decade and for good reason: Her mother is cursed with being interesting. Take for instance, Amy's real name: Sausage. She blames her mother entirely.
The wedding will take place at the beautiful Leelanau Lodge, a secluded spot in northern Michigan. When Peter convinces Amy to invite her mother, Amy knows there's going to be trouble. But how could she know the trouble will involve her first love, the sexy Graham, a series of murders, and excellent lentil soup?
In Pepper Wellington and the Case of the Missing Sausage there's murder and sex, but not at the same time. There is also a string of questions. Will Amy finally live her life authentically? Will she choose a grey life with Peter, or a colorful one with Graham? How many people will end up dead? And most importantly...what kind of mother would name her daughter Sausage?

Gardener, knitter, reader, mandolin & violin player for fun. Mostly like mysteries, history and biographies. Listen to almost anything though.
If you are in the mood for some light-hearted romantic, mildly-suspenseful comedy, this is the book for it. Tanya Eby is one of my favourite narrators so I was delighted to see that she had turned her hand to writing as well. I hope this is the beginning of a series featuring the hippiesque Petter Wellington. Her daughter, Sausage, is a wonderful character too.
Romantic comedies can be tough when it comes to audio book format. The performance was certainly clear enough and it was delivered by the author herself. But I found the story almost too implausible to be that entertaining. It had its moments; there just weren't enough of them for me.This might be a book that would be more appreciated in e-book or print form. Honestly, for me, the narrator's voicing for male characters in particular became a little tedious.
Adequate, but tiring.
I guess that depends on what the reader is looking for. I think the vote on this one will probably be split down the middle. About half the audience will really like and enjoy the book. For the others, it may be something that's quickly forgotten.
I'll probably try another one of her books in e-book format.
