    "This Series Has Potential"

    This was an enjoyable cozy mystery. The characters were likable, realistic and intelligent. The plot was paced nicely and there were enough twist and turns to keep you guessing. I hope Audible gets the rest of this series.

    "Disappointing"

    I was in the mood for a relaxing "cozy." Based on the publishers comments this book sounded like a good bet. I listened to the entire book, but was never drawn in to the location, the story or the characters.

    Candy Holliday is a first time amateur sleuth. When a family friend is accused of murder, Candy decides to find the "real killer". Amateur sleuths are fine with me, but not when they risk their own lives and the lives of friends. Candy believes she has to do this because law enforcement in her small town is totally inept - another thing that irritates me in mysteries.

    None of the characters seemed very well defined or unique. The pace was a little slow for my taste; some scenes went on longer than they needed to without adding anything to the story.

    Narrator Tavia Gilbert often has a breathy quality to her voice that sounded melodramatic in some scenes. I found the voice she used for Candy's best friend Maggie to be distinctive, but irritating.

    I wish I had liked this book better.
