When the ghost of a murder victim appears in Last Chance Books, middle-aged bookstore owner, Willa Chance, must find the ghost's killer or risk being haunted with its unwanted advice forever. Too bad the ghost suffers from amnesia and only has a few scant clues as to the identity of the killer. That's okay, though, because Willa has a pretty good idea who did it...until her investigation turns up additional suspects with curious motives.

What would have made A Mew to a Kill better?

Development of Characters

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nero Wolfe

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narrator was okay but didn't have great material. She could have paused slightly more for character change at times.

What character would you cut from A Mew to a Kill?

None. I would however develop all characters. The story leads you to believe more will be developed but I listened to 3 books in hopes that I'd see the main character become more aware of her GIFT. The group of elderly that enter the bookstore each morning could certainly add more and have deeper personalities. By the third book I would have thought some back stories would have emerged. The author repeats background information repeatedly throughout the book. I get the feeling she doesn't think her audience intelligent.

Any additional comments?

As Pepper would say,
Not my cup of tea.
