These murder mysteries are a delight! They move quickly and are full of quirky interesting characters - I never tire of them.
I'm not a fan of cozies, but bought this one at a friend's urging. It is a very typical cozy - a small town (with remarkably high crime rate), an amateur detective, no violence. If you're in to baking, I think you've more than likely already found this series, as it is filled with recipes. I was a little put off by the general primness of the characters (oh no! a grown man drinking and meeting women at bars? a woman possibly dating someone of a different race? phew! turns out she's not!), but it was a reasonable listen and probably very enjoyable for someone who likes cozies.
I also enjoyed this book very much. Characters are easy to follow. Easy Fun listening. Good plot also easy to follow. Can't wait to listen to the next one.
I borrow the book from the library, and I started reading from kindle then I purchased the audio. Since I am learning English this feature in which I can read and listen along is helpful. Nice story, narration.
I loved it.
I like the way I can relate to the characters in her stories. I could easily lose myself as a resident of Lake Eden.
Great voice, inflections and accents. It's easy to tell who is speaking without being told. She has a wonderful gift.
Joanne Fluke is a new author for me. I usually find one I like and then read all they have written. Joanne is now on my list to read all she has written. I have only read five so far but am continuing on my journey.
In this fourth book in the series (and my last), the characters are more of the same - boring, insipid, unbelievably naive. I should have stopped by at least book #3.
