Publisher's Summary

It's fun to buy a house. Unless, there is something hidden behind the walls and someone wants it. Someone who is willing to kill for it. Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar, but the guy she's most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. In between appraising houses and planning a fund-raiser for the food pantry (can you say liquid string contest?), Jolie, Scoobie, and friends need to figure who left a cache of jewelry behind the walls in her house. And who is going to help her cat Jazz feel at home in the new house? Maybe a different kind of pet...

Charming cozy mystery

Would you consider the audio edition of Behind the Walls to be better than the print version?

The audio edition does bring the characters to life to a certain extent. Loved the hollow sound for when she was talking to herself. Seemed strange to be read by a man for a female lead, but then most of the other characters were male.

What did you like best about this story?

Despite the fact that there are murders, there is no grisly description. Lots of human interaction that seemed quite realistic.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Every time I had to quit listening, I was eager to return.

Loved it!

family, friendship, law-enforcement, New Jersey, small-business, small-town, greed, amateur-sleuth, cozy-mystery, situational-humor

First the hurricane, then the jewelry in the wall, then the body on the porch of the house Jolie has just bought. Throw in an ex boyfriend who is a reporter, a tame skunk, a testy police detective, assorted relatives and friends, and more unusual happenings to make this one fun and busy cozy mystery. I loved it!
Michael Spence does a great job of interpreting all the real characters populating the story.
