Publisher's Summary

Even small towns have secrets....

Hadley James is finally living the life she’s always wanted: making jam and selling it at the local farmers market. When a cat-sitting job turns into a murder investigation, life no longer seems so perfect.

Her twin brother, a deputy sheriff, is on the case but they’ve always done everything together and she can’t help but get involved. Following a trail of crafty clues, the James twins learn that their sleepy town might be harboring more darkness than they could’ve imagined.

A fun, cozy story...

This is a really cute, fun, cozy story... the first in what I hope turns into a series! I absolutely loved it's sense of place... (Now that I'm thinking about the last couple of cozy mysteries that I've read, I realize that in each of them the protagonists are all pretty firmly grounded, maybe that's a rule for one of these stories...) but, I mention the place in this book because like Hadley, I've grown up in the Pacific Northwest. Also in the summer time, I've been known to haunt our own farmers markets, and the Cascades aren't that far away, so this story felt a little bit like home...
And boy oh boy, does Hadley and her twin brother (the local cop) have their work cut out for them when a woman is found murdered! There's plenty of murder suspects, because it seems the victim had seemingly gone out of her way to harass everyone in town.
Jennifer Jill Araya does a great job narrating this tale... and if your crafty you may feel the urge to knit, or make jam while you're listening to this one!

Considering the genre, I'm giving this one...
5 Cozy ☆'s ☺

A Great Cozy Mystery!!!

This cozy mystery is such a joy to listen to. Eryn Scott writes a smart, suspenseful and funny mystery which has an ending you will not see coming! I loved following the main characters as they figured out clues to catch the murderer. The story was well written and the characters believable. I can't wait to listen to the next book! The narration was awesome. Jennifer Jill Araya gave each character their own voice and emotions. She really helped the story come alive and pull the listener in until the end. I will be looking for her as a narrator in future books. Loved the combination and will be recommending this book to my cozy mystery friends.

A great listen

5 Star review A Crafty Crime (Stoneybrook Mystery #1) by Eryn Scott

Audio Review:

Both the author Eryn Scott and narrator Jennifer Jill Araya were new to me and I have no idea why that is. I loved this book from start to finish. It is a cosy mystery and one that I found thoroughly entertaining.

The narrator did a fabulous job and certainly kept me entertained. This was a a book filled with secrets and lies. The intrigue and suspense kept me on the edge of my seat as I listened to this story.

There are many twists, turns and surprises in A Crafty Crime as Hadley and her band of friends follow the clues and I have to say that I was taken by surprise on a couple of occasions.

Interesting Story

I love a good cozy mystery and this one did not disappoint. I did, however, have some unanswered questions. I guess if this will be a series I will get the opportunity to have those questions answered. I love the small town feel of the book. I enjoyed the narrator she made the book pleasant to listen to.

Brilliant start to the series!

A fast paced mystery with charming characters. I loved how likeable the characters were and how they were represented as a close knit little group. I felt like part of the gang as it was easy to feel their emotional connections to each other. I also loved the fact that there was a cute little cat in the story too.
I'm really looking forward to reading book two and so on and to see how the romantic sub plot develops through the series.

The story was very easy to listen to as the narrator did a great job.
