    "Fun Mystery w/Series Potential"

    First Thought when Finished: Dead Air had a fun, quirky case but the characters just didn't grab me. They had potential though!

    Story Thoughts: Dead Air was the beginning of a new cozy mystery series. I liked Mary Kennedy's writing voice and she wrote an overall super fun mystery. The only thing I really had a hard time with was the main characters. I had a hard time warming up to/liking Maggie, the lead character. She was very smart and capable but a bit to offish for me. I did like her mother and roommate though. Towards the end, I even felt that Maggie had potential.

    Enough with what I didn't like, here is what I did like: the mystery. I really enjoyed how quirky the case into the dead New Age guru got. It was fun to go from trailer parks to searching the glades. Some of the side characters (suspects) were completely fun and had me giggling. They gave the case personality and oomph! I am probably going to give book 2 a whirl at some point because the series has serious potential.

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated By Kim McKean / Length: 10 hrs and 23 mins

    Kim McKean did a decent job with the narration and I warmed up to her more towards the end of the story. I just don't think her style really fit the main character that well. I would be interested to listen to her read another type of novel (maybe straight fiction/contemporary romance). She had a very pleasant voice and cadence but with cozies you need to have a bit more larger than life personality (voice) to do them properly.

    Final Thoughts: Cute cozy that had a solid mystery.

    "Stupid heroine"

    She's supposed to be a PHD in psychology. Stupider than a 13 year old 7th grade valley girl with the thought processes of the same. If you can get past that, it could rise to two stars.
