Publisher's summary

From USA Today best-selling authors Gin Jones and Elizabeth Ashby comes a brand new mystery....

It's Independence Day weekend, and Maria Dolores, the descendant of Danger Cove's first lighthouse keeper, is the new manager of the Lighthouse Farmers' Market. While she may be a bit uncertain about her career change - trading financial planning for flower stalls and farm-fresh produce - she's still determined to get the market into shape and onto one of the region's "best-of" lists.

From the very beginning, though, events conspire against her. Her mentor and attractive local farmer, Merle Curtis, fails to show up to introduce her to the vendors, the stalls are all in the wrong place, and an earthquake shakes up everyone in the market! In its aftermath, Maria realizes the flower vendor is more than shaken up.... She's dead.

Maria suddenly finds herself embroiled in a small-town mystery that's got everyone on edge. Will it all lead to the end of Maria's new career? Or worse yet...her life?

Robotic performance, good story

I have read and listened to several of the Danger Cove series. I enjoyed the story itself, the first of the Farmers Market set that I have heard. The cast of characters each had their own distinct personalities to contribute to the market. The way it was written, I thought other characters could have been the murderer. Unfortunately, this performance was horrible. I stuck through listening but at times almost gave up. It sounded like she was a monotone robot, with very little differentiation between voices. In the end, I would have much rather read the book than listened to it.

Narrator

Could not listen to this book just being read aloud. I liked all the books in this series but couldn't pay attention to this one.

Sounds like a robot

I could barely listen to this book. Narrator sounds like a robot. It's so weird she is speaking like Siri. Awful!!!

Excellent

A day at the farmer’s market was all wrong, placements were wrong, and the deadly body they found. Wrong day to have the market, good story with enough characters to chose who did it. Given audio for my voluntary review

To Market, To Market

A new start as the Farmer’s Market manager is rocky when a vendor is murdered. And a vendor is put in time out for his anger issues and the vendor who wants her job tries sabotage. Now a second murder and the stress is getting high. Great performance and story. Recommend.
