First in the Minnie Markwood Mysteries: Minnie Markwood can out-sleuth Miss Marple any day of the week - in her imagination. But when a real killer begins to target Minnie and her young sidekicks, reality trumps imagination big time. Who's buying up all the red shoelaces at the mall and stalking a cashier? Is it the killer who terrorized Minnie on the highway and kidnapped her coworker? It soon becomes frighteningly clear that Minnie's onto something, and The Red Shoelace Killer's days are numbered.

Active lifestyle so audiobooks fit in with nearly everything I'm doing.
Yes. I think most people will find this story an easy listen that is quite enjoyable and totally unbelievable.
Haven't heard Howlett before but her voice is well suited to this type of story.
I received this audiobook as a promotional gift from the narrator and audible.com Thank you.
This is a very light and fluffy mystery, but a fun way to spend a few hours. The smart older lady with the sweet-natured bimbo sidekick make a very enjoyable sleuthing pair. There are quite a few holes in the plotting, but it's frothy and likeable. I found the narration ponderous, but cranking the speed up to 1.25 fixed that.
I would definitely read The Red Shoelace Killer again. It was a vwell structured, entertaining mystery with a few side stories to keep you enteretained.
I liked the cadence of the story; liked that it followed a week of living with enough details to fell as if you were in the story yourself.
The narrator was likeable, although it took a while to get used to her deep and sometimes monotone voice. However, her voice grew on me. It fit her 50-something character. However, she also voiced a 21-year old young woman that sounded like an 8 year old.
The narrator seemed too monotone for me. During dialogue her voice was fine, but the rest of it turned me off. But the story idea still intrigues me so I'll have to get the paperback when I can afford to.
