I loved both the audio and print version of A Murder Moist Foul although I did find it enjoyable to hear the accents of the characters. I enjoyed going back to the beginnings of Missy and Chas' relationship and hearing the story made me feel as though I were really in LaChance, Louisiana and at Missy's Muffins and More. The only problem with this story and it is the same problem I have with every story in this series is that they are all too short. I've read all 17 and I am eagerly awaiting the 18th!
This is my first audio book, and was gifted to me, and I really enjoyed it. The pace was good and I loved all the different accents the narrator used. The narrator made a good story even better. I loved the details so you could really imagine you were there. I found myself wondering about who the murderer might be even when I wasn't listening to the audiobook. I highly recommend this book to new readers of the series or veterans. It was fun to see how Missy & Chase met plus how they felt towards each other. I had started the series at book 17. Great read.
This was an interesting, well written story line. The character needed a little more personal detail to draw me in but I'm sure we will learn more about them as we go along. My only issue is I'm an animal lover and would never pick books where an animal dies so " story alert" if you also have issues with this kind of thing.
I liked hearing this book on audio. The totally relaxing way this little mystery unfolds was fun and as usual Missy and Chas are keeping the romance going in spite of being so busy solving mysteries. I am looking forward to the next one, as these novels by Carol are perfect for a quick escape into some fun and my addiction - reading.
Yes, it was enjoyable. I liked the narrator and the story. It was a cozy mystery with a little romance thrown in.
I enjoyed the characters and the mystery the most.
I enjoyed the sound of her voice, she gave the right emotion to the characters
I would like this to be a little longer. It was nice to have a read that just took an afternoon but I will be looking forward to the next book in the series in hopes it will tell me a little more and explore the characters more.
This is the first book in this series and it's off to a great start! It is a short book to listen to. I enjoyed the plot, the love interest between the main characters and the setting. The reader did a excellent job with a southern accent and reading the story over all. I enjoyed it very much!!
Liked the story thought narrator was wonderful. Would have liked the book to be a little longer there were lots of areas to flesh out story. However if you want a quick listen/read worth the purchase. Will listen to series of more are released.
I review books, mostly audiobooks, mostly mystery. That's about it!
There's not much I can add to the publishers summary without writing spoilers. At just short of 2 1/2 hours this is a very short listen with a lot packed in to it, so short that though packed with characters and plot twists, it lacked detail and was, therefore, not a fully satisfying experience. A shame really, as the plot outline makes for a good culinary cozy. All the facts are there but it reads like an abridged version, I would have thought that having two authors, the characters could have been padded out a little.
Having said that, I did quite enjoy it, there are eleven books in this series (but just one in audio format) they must be popular, so I'm sure the writing style improves no end.
It is a typical cozy, with all the elements that cozy lovers crave, cooking, murder, mystery and a little romance, so worth giving a go.
Narrated by Jane Boyer, a name new to me, I thought she did a good job, pleasant voice, great male characters but I did find it a little difficult to differentiate between the females. I thought she portrayed a very good "Missy" through all her emotions. I don't think the recording itself is of top quality, at times it obscured the clarity of the narration, there was also a faint but consistent sibilance present. This is no fault of the narrator, and I would happily listen to other work by Jane Boyer.
