What do you get when you combine a chicken named Elvis, a locked diary, and a secret Violet Parker does not want share with her daughter?
Seeing Trouble is the first of many short stories involving the characters of the Deadwood Mystery series.

This was not worth buying. There was a very short story about Violet's diary and a short "interview "of violet by the author. The first was cute, the second not so much. Neither gave me new information about Violet or her world. There was also an unrelated fluff story that had no purpose being in this set and wasn't good. I love the series but I felt the author should have offered this audiobook free for fans of the series - much as other series writers have done with shorter stories. Actually, those free short stories have drawn me into several series - such as the also humorous Chronicles of St Mary's. Sadly, selling this kind of meager fare does not leave me with a good taste about the author or publisher. U
I've listen to the first two books in the series and have enjoyed them. I purchased this thinking it would have some value but it is rehashed backstory for the most part. It would have been appropriate to add as an additional short at the end of the second book. Unfortunately, the backstory didn't provide any insight to the main character, instead offering only casual observation. This was not added value for the series and I don't encourage purchase as it will not further engage a reader.
