Publisher's Summary

Was it the environmental activist enamored with spotted owls, someone from the local Native American tribe, Jeff's son, Jeff's wife, or his wife's lover? Join Kelly, the owner of Kelly's Koffee Shop, her boxer dog, Rebel, and her fiancé, Mike, the county sheriff, as they try and catch the person who killed Jeff Black. Well, it's not as if no one wanted Jeff dead. He had a lot of enemies. There were a lot of people who didn't want to see his property turned into a commercial hotel and spa. Finding suspects won't be hard to do, but finding out who killed him will be. No one would ever nominate Jeff for the "Most Popular Citizen Award". This is going to be a nightmare for Mike. I wonder how I can help him, Kelly thought. Murder at Jade Cove is another mouth-watering Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery with recipes included!

    Story
    "A Killer Strikes"

    Cedar Bay Cove is beautiful and draws people to its shores. Unfortunately it's the scene of another murder. Jeff Black is the victim. His plans to build a resort at the cove caused violent opposition. With so many suspects can they find out who killed Jeff? Mike, the county sheriff, is working on it. It's slow going but he's determined not to let Kelly, his fiancée, get involved. She is not easily deterred. She's a warm, open woman who has a talent to get people to open up to her. This small town is filled with interesting and diverse characters. There is no such thing as secrets. Erin deWard captures every nuance of these people. The narration builds the suspense and I was pulled into this cozy mystery. Dianne Harman's style captures all that I love about cozies. I enjoy audiobooks because they make me feel as if I were right there in the middle of the action.
    I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

    "Light-hearted Mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    Fun short murder mystery.

    Light, fun, enjoyable quick read.

    Even though this is a murder mystery, there isn't really a lot of mystery going on. It's pretty easy to figure out. It's just a fun quick afternoon read.

    Kelly just can't stop herself from prying into police business. Mike the town sheriff and her fiancé can't keep Kelly out of police business.

    People in small towns do gossip like this.

    Erin deWard did a good job with the narration. She has a pleasant voice and is easy on the ears. Really good different character voices.

    Story
    "Thank goodness for the dogs"

    This was right on the brink of eye-rollingly stupid. Just when I would say "oh, come on! No one is that......stupid, gossipy, forthcoming, stupid" the book would get a little better. The characters were pretty shallow for the most part - the good are all good and the bad are well, bad. No surprise ending. I did like the setting and wonder if the jade in the cliffs are for real. The dogs saved it. But I am a huge dog lover. And not a fan of buying a purebred when there are so many in need at shelters. however, I love them all and that kept me listening. Go, Rebel!
    I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea."
    Would you try another book from Dianne Harman and/or Erin deWard?

    No. This book was not a murder-mystery with depth or intrigue more of a fluffy type.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dee Henderson or Lynette Eason


    What didn’t you like about Erin deWard’s performance?

    I am not sure if it was Erin deWard's reading or the writing but it was choppy. Her voices were forced not very distinctive. I didn't find her easy to listen to.


    Did Murder at Jade Cove inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    Story
    "So So Book"
    What did you like best about Murder at Jade Cove? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed learning about the location and history of Jade Cove. I'm sorry to say, but Kelly got on my nerves and Sheriff did not talk very nice to Kelly at times.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would make Kelly and the Sheriff more likeable. I also would cut down on so much going on in this book.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Over all the performance was good, but there were times when the characters were excited or surprised that the voice did not ring true.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If this book was a made for TV book, I would watch it. I would not pay to go to the theater to see it.


    Any additional comments?

    I really did not enjoy this book, but I will give the author and narrator another try.

    Story
    "This was a quick and easy read for me."

    This was a quick and easy read for me. It is typical of the cozy mystery genre - a lead that is far nosier than she should be, townsfolk that share far too many secrets, and a town full of possibly murderous people.

    Erin deWard did an excellent job narrating. She's a quick reader, so be forewarned.

    "vapid"
    What disappointed you about Murder at Jade Cove?

    Even though I did not have another audio book I stopped listening to this one because it was so vapid. You are hit over the head by every point the author wants to be sure you get.
