This was my third Amelia Moore book and by far my favorite! I am not sure exactly why that is. There were a lot of likable things about this book that I could connect to. I also felt like I knew Amelia and Rick very well by this time around, they are starting to feel like old friends. Even though each book is a new mystery and could all be read as stand-alones, they also all connect to each by the characters and their growing romance.
I think one thing I really liked about this one was that it took place in Mexico. I have never been before but it is a country I can relate to more than the others. I have had a lot of Spanish and Mexican friends and like Rick, I love Mexican food! Rick's love of food once again amused me.For him and me - the spicier the better! Bring it on. With all the talk and descriptions of the authentic Mexican food - it had my mouth watering.
A couple of little things I loved - there was a little side job Rick was working on, a "break-in" that was kind of cute and a nice added touch. I also loved the part about the old Chevy truck. A dream of my husband is to get an old truck (except it has to be a Ford!) and slowly, over time fix it up.
I also loved the part she added about the importance of hugging!
Job well done Linda! I hope I enjoy the next one just as much - The Mysterious Doll.
My thoughts on the reader of the audio version - This is the same reader as for the others I have read. And again - I am not in love with her. I don't hate her, just don't love her. I didn't really care for some of the voices the tries to use and I thought her "baby-talk" that Amelia was suppose to do was terrible!
BUT... there was singing in this one and the reader actually sang the songs and she was a fantastic singer, very nice voice! So I will put that in her favor.
Thank you Linda for send me this audio book for my honest review.
This is the third book in the Amelia Moore Detective series and as the previous book, it was again a sweet, clean and romantic mystery. I did not read book 1 but I’ve now read books 2 and 3 and each stand on their own. It was fun to revisit Amelia and her partner Rick and see how their relationship has grown naturally. I’m hoping that the relationship progresses even further in the next book!
This mystery in this book takes us to Mexico where Amelia and Rick are looking for the missing heir of a deceased uncle and philanthropist. Time is running out and mystery people are trying to stop them at all costs.
I received the Audible version of this book in exchange for an honest review. The narration was good and enhanced the story.
All in all The Missing Heir is a fun, easy read that will make you want to continue your connection with Amelia and Rick.
I enjoyed learning about Mexico, and Amelia and Rick's adventure there. As with all this author's books, the scenery is well described. It's like taking a trip without leaving your house.
Yes. Amelia and Rick only have a short time to find a missing heir some where in Mexico. If he is not found in time an orphanage and medical clinics will be closed.
I enjoyed the ending, and the surprises it brought. I don't want to give it away.
Hearing about Uncle Dell, and how much he loved the orphans and how giving he was for a rich man.
Missing Heir is a clean and sweet cozy mystery, that I found very enjoyable.
I have enjoyed listening to Linda Weaver Clarke's cozy mystery The Missing Heir very much. Linda's Amelia Moore Detective Series have been an enjoyable read for me and I have always been a fan of mysteries. Again, I enjoyed listening to the narration of Diane Lehman, as she expressively tells the story using interesting voices and with a clear and enjoyable voice.
Having never been to Mexico myself, it was fun to experience Amelia and Rick's journey through a part of this country as they search for the nephew and heir of Dell Murphy, who is missing. Dell's nephew was expected to continue the work at Dell's orphanage, rather than his brother and sister who would close the orphanage down. They find many obstacles in their way as they continue their search.
I really enjoyed book 3 of the series. Linda's books are very interesting, enjoyable and always a clean read. I also enjoyed the fact that it was an Audible book that I could easily listen from my Smart phone on my commute to work. A great way to "read"!
I love reading, I come by it naturally. My grandfather was a school teacher and writer and the rest of my family are huge Bibliophiles.
Yes! This is such a great little story about Amelia Moore and her case to find a missing nephew who is supposed to inherit his uncles fortune so that he can keep his uncle's legacy alive through orphanages that he has built in Mexico. It's a great cozy read!
I love the easy and light romantic relationship that is between Amelia and her partner Rick. I also love the trouble they get into.
She does a wonderful job narrating, she really makes the voices of the characters come alive.
Sure! It was short enough that anyone can read in one sitting or on a short car ride. It didn't get too deep into too much explanation where it needed hours of set up and it was enjoyable.
In this third book in the Amelia Moore Detective series, Amelia and Rick are hired to find a missing cousin who is set to inherit money to keep a couple of his uncle’s orphanages afloat. As always, I love this mystery series because it is so light, fun and cozy. I love the relationship between Amelia and her partner Rick, it is very clean and makes the story a little more fun to see the flirtation between the two. For this case they had to travel to Mexico where the trip started out great but then turned ugly. There’s always someone who wants to stop Amelia from finding out the truth and of course this time there’s no exception. There are a few surprises along the way that keep the reader on their toes like trying to find out who hired the muscle to find them. It is definitely a read if you are looking for something lighthearted and cozy.
Really loving audiobooks, this has been the year of the audio for me. Huge booklover all the way around from romance to horror. :)
Well, to me the narrator always makes the experience for me as if I don't like the voice in my ear then it's hard to listen too. The narrator for this series is great and so it's very enjoyable to listen too.
The thing that sticks out to me was when they duo was in Mexico and they are trying to get away from a bad guy.
She does a great job and is now the voice of this series so I hope they never change narrators.
Another good book from this cozy mystery series that is based on missing persons. Amelia is a private investigator and she specializes in missing person cases.
This time two young adults come to her for help finding their missing relative. He is the heir to a lot of money and the one who will keep some orphanages open in some regions in Mexico. His other family members are not so happy about him giving all to the younger man who had a heart just like he did.
She enlist the help of her partner and love interest, Rick to go to Mexico with her and try and track down the missing heir. They only have four days to do so before a lawyer steps in and proceeds to give the money over to the others.
There is someone who doesn’t want them to find him because they run into a bit of trouble in Mexico.
I really like the Ameilia Moore stories because you get to travel around the country. In book one it was Bali, book two was Ireland and now Mexico. I also like that they are not your typical cozy mysteries because they are mostly just surrounding missing person and not murdered bodies.
I really like Amelia and Rick and I love how they are with each other. I especially like how Rick takes it slow with Amelia cause she seems a bit gun shy with relationships. I love their bucket list quest and his always seems to be so sweet like, helping at the orphanage.
If you enjoy cozy mysteries then I think you will enjoy this series as well.
Active lifestyle so audiobooks fit in with nearly everything I'm doing.
They’re Back!!! In this third light and cozy Amelia Moore Detective Series, The Missing Heir takes us to another beautiful country in order to solve a new mystery. A case is presented to Amelia by two siblings trying to save an orphanage held in the balance of an estate in turmoil but to do so they need to locate their cousin. As always, Amelia and Rick Bonito act as Linda Weaver’s super sleuths as she spins a pleasant story of captivating places while seeking out fabulous food and local entertainment, this time in our southern border country of Mexico.
I read this three times while recovering from illness and I don’t think a person could tire of these fun and interesting stories with the fairly well developed, intriguing characters and lovely geographic tidbits except in one area, the romantic side where Amelia is constantly telling us about Rick’s handsome, hunky body which actually starts to feel a little bit naughty. Aside from that this story has real heart as the duo work hard to save the only home that several children have ever had. There are some great twists as you follow along with Amelia and Rick in their journey to find The Missing Heir.
Diane Lehman continues to pop the beloved characters off the pages and into our hearts; as always she is a pleasure to listen to.
This audiobook was provided to me by Linda Weaver Clarke and Audible in exchange for a fair and honest review which I have given. Thank you, and I continue to wish both women success in future endeavors.
This is the third book in the Amelia Moore Detective Series, and I enjoyed. Though you can easily enjoy this book without having read the previous two books, I enjoyed watching how Amelia and Rick's relationship progresses through each novel. This book takes readers to Mexico and solves a mystery relating to a missing heir and support for an orphanage. It is refreshing to see good triumph over evil. I appreciate that this is a clean book - no bad language, no sex scenes, and the relationship between the two lead characters is based on a friendship that progresses into something more. I listened to the Audible audiobook, but I have to say that even though this is the same narrator who did the previous two books, I didn't enjoy the narration as much this time. I felt like the accents she used for the Mexican people just sounded like a mix between the Balinese and Irish people of the previous books. Maybe I am sensitive to it because I live in southern California and hear lots of Mexican accents. Aside from that, the pacing was good and she differentiates between characters in different voices. This was an enjoyable book, and if you like to take virtual vacations to far off places, enjoy mysteries with a little romance, this is a book for you.
I really like her voice and it's a very enjoyable story.
I love the humour.
I don't have one it's all good.
Another great book win this series. I love that with each book in this series allows for more character growth. With each book, and new conflicts to overcome. As always, the story was fun and intriguing. There were times I wasn't sure if the characters were going to find their missing person and get home in time, and times that made me on edge as I watched the characters struggle. I really enjoyed this book and I love seeing the different cultures introduced in each book as well. It's fun to learn as I experience the stories. Definitely recommend
