Publisher's Summary

As owner of Coffee, Books, and More, Jill Gardner looks forward to the hustle and bustle of holiday shoppers. But when the mayor ropes her into being the liaison for a new work program, 'tis the season to be wary. Local businesses are afraid that the interns will be delinquents, punks, or worse. For Jill, nothing's worse than Ted Hendricks - the jerk who runs the program. After a few run-ins, Jill's ready to kill the guy. That, however, turns out to be unnecessary when she finds Ted in his car - dead as a doornail. Detective Greg King assumes it's a suicide. Jill thinks it's murder. And if the holidays weren't stressful enough, a spoiled blonde wants to sue the city for breaking her heel. Jill has to act fast to solve this mess - before the other shoe drops.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Chick lit or mystery?"

    Actually, it is both. If the Shoe Kills is a lighthearted and fun novel that is mostly about women's relationships with each other and with the opposite gender. But there is also a murder mystery to be solved. This book is fun listening especially after the four thrillers I listened to earlier in the week. It is a nice break. Narration is perfect!

    Any additional comments?

    This series is just delightful. No, it's not fine literature, but if you're driving or doing chores, it's highly entertaining. The characters are nuanced enough and the stories are interesting. Please hurry up with #4!!!

    "A bit the same."

    I enjoyed the first book a lot. A nice listen in the car on trips. The second one was good. This one seems to be much the same. The heroine is portrayed as a bit dull and flighty. The other characters don't like her. The boyfriend wants to wrap her in gauze and keep her safe at home. The story line is a bit predictable from the first two books: Same general story, Different names. I'll read the next one but no more if they stay predictable.

    "Entertaining"
    Would you listen to If the Shoe Kills again? Why?

    Maybe in a few years. I will forget the ending by then.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not on the edge of my seat, but certainly engaged.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No idea. She does a fine job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Don't wish to provide a spoiler.

    "If the Shoe Kills"

    I ENJOYED the book,but I liked book 1 and 2 better. If the Shoe Kills had a few areas that were boring, didn't keep my interest like the first 2 in the series.

    "Another great addition"

    Lynn Cahoon is doing a wonderful job with character development. The characters become more like friends. I highly recommend this book to those who are fans of cozy mysteries.

    Story
    "Jill the door mat"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I liked Jill at first, but as the book proceeded, I found her annoying. I'm not a health nut but I found Jill's diet of fried foods, non-stop desert and alfredo a bit much. She also is a bit of a door mat at times, although she did stand up for herself with the Mayor's wife (Tina) once.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time I have listened to Susan Boyce. I found her narration pleasant although there wasn't a significant amount of differentiation in her voices.

    I enjoyed the third book in this series. I hope more are written and that they are made available in the Audible library.
