Publisher's Summary

Meet feisty new amateur sleuth Flora Lively in the first of her cozy mystery adventures...

When 29-year-old Flora Lively loses both of her parents and inherits the family business, she tries hard to make a success of her father's dream - even at the expense of her own dreams. Burdened with Marshall, her father's handpicked American manager, Flora finds solace in her friendship with Joy, an elderly client she helped move into the Maples, the local retirement community.

But when strange and dangerous things begin to happen at the Maples, Flora finds herself plunged headfirst into a web of betrayal, intrigue and deceit. Convinced a murderer is preying on helpless residents, Flora is forced to conduct a private murder investigation. But can she solve the puzzle in time, or will the murderer strike again?

    "Not my cup of tea"

    I did not finish this book. Seemed more work than pleasure. Characters annoying. Maybe it would have been acceptable if I had.

    Story
    "Just right for an audiobook"
    Would you listen to Flora Lively: Murder at the Maples again? Why?

    Probably not. Loved it but there are so many more books to listen to out there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Simple, straight-forward plot and not too many characters (each easily identifiable) so it was easy to follow and not get confused by too many plot twists, obscure clues and too many similar characters. Listening to an audio book, you can't keep looking back to check details.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Possibly.
