    Story
    "Really funny and entertaining cozy mystery"
    Would you listen to Murderous Muffins again? Why?

    I would love to listen to Murderous Muffins again! This book was the whole package--funny, great narration, good storyline, engaging quick listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think I liked the banter between the characters the best. And Besu is a likeable, relatable character


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    I thought Karen did a fabulous, if not a bit stereotyped, job of affecting accents. She had the whole gamut from southern to "oriental" to middle eastern.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I did listen to this book in one setting.


    Any additional comments?

    Just an overall delightful book!

    "Enjoyable"

    This book was humorous and quite enjoyable. The narrator did a nice job.
    The story line was easy to follow and the story itself was a good read.

    "Murderous Reading"

    I really enjoyed the first book. This one, not so much. I found it silly and not worth the bother.

    Story
    "A cozy, fun southern mystery."

    I received a free audio copy of this book for an honest review.

    This was a great, cozy mystery. I had such a fun time listening to the audiobook on Audible. This book can be read as a stand alone; however, not having read the first, there were a few story items from the previous book that were not explained in the second. This said, the story points didn't affect the current tale, I just felt like I was missing some information. The story moves along fairly quickly and the cast of characters are awesome! The main character, Bezu is such a fun character and I loved her quirks and quips! The mystery takes a little while to get started, but the introduction to the various players is very entertaining, so I didn't mind the small delay. I kept trying to solve the mystery, but the story keeps you guessing! I definitely recommend if you are looking for a fun mystery.

    "fun listen"

    this book was fun. it reminded me slightly of the Hannah Swenson series by Joanne Fluke. I related with the struggles of the characters. I enjoyed it and would listen to the others in the series.

    Story
    "My "pure entertainment" pick of the year"

    Probably the most entertaining and humerous audiobook I've reviewed this year. Bezu, the lovely Southern Belle, is entrancing, but her lodgers are, let's face it, a pretty peculiar bunch. Her house is falling down around her, the bills are piling up, yet must be paid, then along comes Cat, her friend, in need of a roof over her head.
    With Southern hospitality stretching to the limit, beautiful Bezu finds room for her dear friend under her leaky roof. Now, with a house full to bursting, the adventures begin.
    Swept into the story from the very start, I wanted to listen in one sitting, it is pure entertainment, I even laughed aloud, so be careful if you listen in a public place!
    This story has everything a lighthearted read should have, murder and mystery seasoned with humour and a little romance.
    If you are in need a few hours of good old enjoyment, then this will do the trick. Loved it, I have not read the first Chubby Chicks mystery, but I'll certainly be on the look out for more from the pen of Lois Lavrisa.

    Narration

    Karen White could not, in my opinion, have done a better job than this wonderful narration, she simply tells a story so well. I loved the Southern accents, and all the characters are so clearly defined that one is never left to puzzle "who's that again?"
    Karen never gives cause to detract the listener from the story, it all flows beautifully without interruption. Tip top job!

    Story
    "Fast and Light Mystery"

    I received this audio book for free by the narrator. This was a fun, quick, light mystery. It was fairly obvious who the killer had to be from the outset, so the mystery itself wasn't anything surprising or complex. However, I found that I enjoyed the various characters and the plot moved quickly. Although this was the second book in the series and I haven't read the first, I was able to follow the characters with no problem. The narrator did a good job with the main character's voice; I pictured her as this southern belle, and the voice fit my mental image perfectly!

    "2nd in cozy series"

    Second in the Chubby Chicks series. This story focuses on and is narrated by Bezu as she attempts to keep her family home by taking in boarders. One of the boarders is poisoned by eating her muffins and Bezu, with help from Cat, must solve the crime.

    Nice cozy mystery read through Kindle and listened through Audible using immersion reading. The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the various characters to life. While some parts of the story strain credibility, it is overall an enjoyable read with captivating characters

    "Boring"

    I'm glad I got this book for free from BookBub because had I paid for it I really would have been upset I don't know how many times I just wanted to Simply stop listening I found the heroine to be whining and annoying and the story to be simplistic. Don't waste your time.
