Publisher's Summary

Cops drink coffee. They don't belong in Ellen Rosings's Victorian tearoom. But when her opening day thank-you tea ends in the murder of the president of the Santa Fe Preservation Trust, the police invade her haven. Enter Detective Tony Aragon: attractive and unsympathetic, with a chip on his shoulder that goes beyond the murder investigation, and Ellen's delicate bone china cup is full. Is the murderer one of her honored guests, or the ghost rumored to haunt the building? Will Ellen solve the mystery, or will the Wisteria Tearoom's premiere turn out to be its - and Ellen's - finale?

    "watered down"

    The characters aren't that interesting, the pacing is slow and I never got into the plot. The narrator didn't help. She sounded to old for the lead character. I usually love Dina Pearlman. This was just a bad fit for her.

    "A good read for when you need non-exciting"

    The publisher's summary, and the delightfully cheap Whispersync offer on Book Gorilla induced me to try this book. I'm mostly glad that I did. The story was well plotted and developed, and the characters clearly defined. But the heroine is so clinically depressed! The insights into Santa Fe history are enlightening to this Midwesterner, and the possible ghostie is rather fun, and I accept that not all cops are like the ones that I know. Basically, it is a nice escapist read.
    However, I wish that I could find something nice to say about the narrator, but since I can't...

    "Boring"

    I'm not really a hardcore mystery fan, I prefer the ones that have a unique setting and a teahouse in Santa Fe seemed to fit the bill. But there has to be some suspense, or character development, or local color or something to keep you engaged and I am sorry to say that for me this book has nothing. I only kept reading to find out who killed the original owner who now is a Ghost but you don't even discover that... (Serves me right).
    The narrator doesn't help - the main character is supposed to be a young woman who grew up in Santa Fe but the narrator very obviously is a middle aged lady from the Midwest who mispronounces almost every New Mexico term.
    No more of this series for me.

    "FANTASTIC Listen"
    Would you listen to A Fatal Twist of Lemon again? Why?

    Yes, This is one of the best Mac and cheese; hot cocoa; mashed potato comfort listen I have heard in a long time. I love books and audiobooks and this is one of the best.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tony Aragon, of course. My insignificant other is a cop--sounds just like himQQQ


    What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

    Her voice inflections--I would make a horrible reader--just do not have the talent but am always impressed with readers who make the story come alive.


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

    Some parts tickled me--and for me that is saying a lote. I seldom laugh to myself when I read (most things that are amusing I find so but do not laugh about) but I did laugh outloud at various parts. The musing by Ellen were priceless.


    Any additional comments?

    I would even read this book--might even pay for it to read it but it was a GREAT listen. I relly enjoyed it.

    "This narrator REALLY knows how to ruin a book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Fatal Twist of Lemon to be better than the print version?

    I SOOOOO consider the print version better than this audio because you won't have to listen to this narrator!!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    THE NARRATOR!


    What didn’t you like about Dina Pearlman’s performance?

    OMG!! She is AWFUL!!!! She sounds as if she is ending almost EVERY sentence with an eye roll!!! At times she kind of sounds out of breath. She also sounds like she think this is the stupidest book as she's reading. I do like the voice she does for Julio but when she reads in her own voice.... Anything or anyone with "ethnic" name it's very condescending and again the eye roll. She also doesn't always change the voice of the women enough to really know who is speaking. She's making me hate this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Really wish I could get this with a different narrator...its such a good book.
