Unsure if she is looking for Mr. Right, or Mr. Every Other Saturday Night, divorced mother of two, Laurel McKay reluctantly joins THE LOVE CLUB, a popular local dating service. Dressed to kill, she meets bachelor number one at a trendy restaurant. But the date is a bust, literally, when the guy decides Laurel is dessert, and she breaks his nose with her cell phone. It gets even worse when the man is found murdered the next morning, and Laurel has his blood on her clothes.

What made the experience of listening to Dying for a Date the most enjoyable?

Author Cindy Sample makes the most of her knowledge of real estate shenanigans, cyber dating, the challenges of a single mom, and her delightful sense of humor, blending the ingredients into a believable plot with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. The mayhem begins when Sample's heroine, a hard-working, divorced mom, tries a singles dating service. While some of the characters are zany, we've met all of them (and some may be relatives). The mystery is satisfying, and the humor a hoot. Definitely five stars.

What does Pilar Uribe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator's take on the heroine is pitch-perfect and adds to the enjoyment.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

When it comes to characters with psychic powers, I'm often cynical. However, author Ellis Vidler paints the psychic powers of the McGuire women in such a compelling, believable manner that I totally buy in. The characters in Time of Death are relatable people you want to cheer for, and the villains are well-drawn, too. Superb pacing and lots of suspense. No problems giving this audiobook a five-star rating.

What about Teri Schnaubelt’s performance did you like?

Teri's performance is excellent. She does a great job with the voices of the men as well as the women.
