    Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    Story
    "Good enough story, but totally predictable"

    Kali O'Brien is an attorney who has come to her hometown, following her father's death. She remains there for a while, planning to deal with the house and estate and his dog. However, almost as quickly as she reunites with old friends, one of them gets murdered, and his wife, Kali's best friend growing up, is under suspicion for his death. So she gets involved in the case, in spite of her own reservations.

    The story is good, the characters pretty well drawn, but there were very few unexpected moments. I guess it might fit into the category of cozy, and it was an easy read (listen). I could listen to another in the series, but I wouldn't expect it to be overly exciting (at least, this one wasn't). That's not necessarily a bad thing, but if you're looking for an edge of your seat page-turner, this isn't it.

    The best part about it is probably the interpersonal parts--the relationships that get re-established and/or created were fun. And clearly Jonnie Jacobs is setting it all up for a longer series. The only thing I was not crazy about was the narration. Not bad, but the narrator read in a way that made these adults sound terribly young, and she read rather slowly.
