I have read all the books in this series so far. Since I get them from Audible it doesn't take long at all to go through them. I especially loved the ending in this one. I hope it doesn't mean that it's the end of the series. It could open up to so much more. I think the narrator speaks this series in such a way that she sounds like she comes from money and a sophisticated back ground. I like that Ellery Adams kept the same narrator. I find that Authors that change narrators through a series tend to lose something. Great read.
Olivia of course, She had turmoil in her life at the beginning but came to terms with everything and ended up having friends and much much more. Not wanting to give away anything for those who haven't got to read it yet
Hope there's more to the series !!
A lover of cozy mysteries, contemporary romance and getting lost in the world of audiobooks
I can't say this enough, but this is an absolutely outstanding cozy mystery series. The characters are so well developed, and with each book you get to know them even more intimately. The plot lines aren't cookie cutter, they have deep roots that grow book by book. But it's the narration which really brings this story perfectly to life. Each character has a unique and distinguishable voice that fits their description & personality impeccably.
If you can, start this series from the beginning. It's much more satisfying to begin with book 1 and grow with the characters, but if you choose to jump in here at book 6 you will get filled in without any problems.
This story (like all the others) is not only interesting, but also very compelling. A time capsule has been unearthed and inside it holds a web of lies & secrets that leads to murder. Olivia has a heart of gold and you really feel for her as she dedicates herself to finding justice at all costs. She's a strong heroine that lends a breath of fresh air to the cozy mystery genre. A must listen!
This is another great book in the series. There is lots of character development and a very good mystery. I love how the characters continue to grow and change.The mystery is complex and well developed. I look forward to the next book.
