Okay, but too short for any real development

Decent little mystery if you want something quick to listen to and don't want to commit to a longer book, but the story is short for any real character or plot development, which, in turn, makes the mystery feel super rushed. Once again, Angel Clark did an alright job as narrator, not the best that I have heard, but far from the worst. I might or might not listen to more from this series by Constance Barker.

A Caffeinated Crunch

Not to harp on the length of the book, but it is tough to do a mystery well in about two hours. That being said, I think this mystery was well done. There were some small leaps made to get you to the end, but I think that is the author's style. I wasn't bothered by it. If you are the type of person who wants and in-depth, detailed mystery, this series may not be for you. If you like a cozy mystery with some humor and a quick resolution, I can recommend this series. Angel Clark does a good job with the majority of the narration, but I found the male characters a little grating.

Good Humor

Lily and the two aunts have dates to same function. A retirement center and the love triangles brings a lot of humor. Good narration, given audio for my voluntary review and my voluntary review

Caffein GOOD.

Would you listen to A Caffeinated Crunch again? Why?

Probably... after hearing book 1.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

No, I slumped a bit but did stay in the seat.

What three words best describe Angel Clark’s performance?

Do-able, ummm, ummm...

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The confession had me laughing out loud.

Any additional comments?

First up, anything that reminds me of coffee or chocolate is a GREAT thing. That being said, this was a cute story. I must admit the first few minutes were a bit off. The narrator’s voice irritated at the beginning, but I found turning the volume down helped with that. I believe the story would have been better (to me), if I had known what had happened in the first book as it was repeatedly referenced but never told.
My favorite character(s) were the two aunts. I would LOVE to see them in action, a tv series perhaps??? I must admit my favorite part was the grinding of the coffee beans. I found the sound effect and timing hilarious.
The ‘red herring’ thrown out about the killers identity, was a bit too obvious. I felt the ending was rushed, but the killers confession was HILARIOUS. I could actually picture it and HAD to laugh out loud. All in all, I found it a lighthearted and enjoyable romp. Can’t wait to hear more… don’t forget about the tv series idea… just saying…

senior's cozy novella

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

At a little over two hours long this light cozy that centers around a senior's retirement community is a cute story.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No time for plot twists, the ending is uncomplicated but still satisfying.

What three words best describe Angel Clark’s performance?

Good narrator, lots of southern twang and seniors' voices which can be tricky.

Do you think A Caffeinated Crunch needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

The story stands alone, it would need to be longer and the characters more developed for a full length series.

Coffee, Eccentric Aunts and Murder; What a Brew!

This is a cute funny Cozy. It is a nice humorous short listen. Who used a golf cart to run over and kill the local senior citizen Lothario? The unlikable victim cheated on his wife, and sweet talked the women that he had affairs with out of their life savings. Was it the wife or one of his many conned lovers who ran him down with a golf cart?

Add to the mix Lily and her two quirky, eccentric aunts for laughs and fun and the brew is complete.

A very enjoyable short listen. No great in depth mystery just a fun short listen cozy.

Quite enjoyable

Cute short cosy mystery, although the mystery part came very late and very fast in this part, so it kind of made me feel like the story ended before it really started The end felt very rushed. Still enjoyed it hence 4 stars Massive plus for the narrator choice, one of my favourite female narrators ;)
