What the Narrator Says

"Lesley Cookman's Libby Serjeant female sleuth series is a joy to read. I loved Libby and her best friend and psychic investigative partner, Fran. Their constant banter keeps you amused throughout their various crime-solving escapades. I felt as if I was part of the gang in "The Pink Geranium", the local restaurant, popping in to enjoy a few glasses of wine, a nice meal, and more banter with Libby's husband and various other pals, including the proprietors, Peter and Harry. Lesley Cookman draws you into Libby's world, spurring you on to share the next case and the next!" Deryn Edwards, narrator of the Libby Sarjeant Mysteries.

    "Quaint and Quiet Cozy Mystery"

    This was my first time reading a Libby Sarjeant mystery, and I enjoyed it.

    I was a little wary because of the other weak reviews, but I think some people who listened are not into the "cozy" genre. This book IS slow, and...well, cozy.

    Libby and her friend Fran, two middle-aged retired women basically get asked to help investigate a mysterious death in a church, and in the process become entangled in a deeper mystery.

    The narration was good, the story was ok even if requiring a suspension of belief, and I enjoyed the characters.

    Not awesome, but not bad at all.

    "narrator error..."

    This title was the first of my Libby Sarjeant collection. I wish I'd chosen a different narrator for my first experience. She ruined an excellent plot and otherwise perfect characters.
