It isn't often that the first book in a series is really this good. The writing is excellent. The character development is superb! And the mystery is great as well! A trifecta!
The plot could very well be something in the news today. A very heavy subject - political corruption and incompetance. But, while the writer handles the issues seriously, there is enough humor to keep it from becoming too heavy. I did figure out who-dun-it, but not until the book was half over!
I really came to identify with Savannah and enjoy her take on life, crime, friends and authority.
The narrator did an excellent job. The accents were 'just right'! She made the characters come alive!
This is a great find in this genre. I'd recommend this to anyone liking a good female-detective-catching-the-bad-guy who-dun-it!
Absolutely, Good ride.
Yes, to those who want something that seems to stay fresh. Nice characters, good story, really good pace..
She's got Savannah down pat. She is able to separate each character so that just by voice you know who it is. Good Job.
I have to, because the story is great and I got them as audible-deals. But the rest of the series I rather read myself
I think that the narrator's southern drawl was a bit much for me. I also think that the series set-up is not that promising. The mystery itself and the various side-plots are a bit predictable.
I think it's just not that complicated enough to please me. I like cozy mysteries and police procedurals but I think that I would give my gold stars to Louise Penny and Donna Leon and some of the thrillers I have heard on Audible. This is a good light mystery.
Southern, cloying, annoying
I don't think so. That woman who is on Mike and Molly perhaps.
I don't think I will pursue this series. I think it tries a little too hard to be cute. Oh, and did I mention cleavage? How many times are we treated to a description of ample cleavage? I'd rather hear about personality traits.
This book was so funny. It was a great little cozy mystery and I would suggest it to anyone. But there are parts of it that are very, very funny.
The main character.
I enjoyed the characters and it was a good book to listen to after a long day at work. Made me laugh.
No, but she did a great job
It's a fun book and I'm going to purchase the rest of the series.
