Exciting crime story!

Any additional comments?

This is the 2nd book in the Angelina Bonaparte Mysteries, A client presents with an incredibly large inheritance from murdered poor parents and wants to find out the truth behind the money. The characters were interesting and believable. Angelina Bonaparte and her family have charming Italian-American ways and customs. She can take care of herself but will call in experts when she needs to. I would love the series to continue! I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review,

Suspicious Inheritance

This is the second of the Angelina Bonaparte mystery series. Angie is a mother and grandmother in her 50's and a private eye of Sicilian background. Her father has ties to the mob and her new boyfriend is a detective with a Polish mother. Angie's new client is Adriana Johnson. Her parents were just murdered and she has been left a very large sum of money. She hires Angie to find out if it is legit as she grew up very sheltered with a very meager lifestyle. She wants to find out where the money she just received came from. I did not read the first book in the series, but had no trouble with it as a stand-alone. I really enjoyed the characters and their interaction with one another. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Such a wonderful book

Angie takes us on another crazy wild ride with a war criminal. I love how compassionate Angie is with her client and how much more we get to interact with Billy as an investigator. I loved the mysterious adventure of this book and the history of Bosnian war that sets the background. This book grabbed my attention right from the beginning. I can't wait for the next book in this series. I received this book for free for an honest review.

Bonaparte Keeps Me on My Toes

I love the energetic granny with her little fun, quirky attitude, who is not letting her age get her down and from stopping her from doing what needs to be done, even if that includes jumping into a back of a truck with pipes.

The mystery aspect on this story is great, although, personally, I wish it had a different ending for how the money came about, but Rathbun knows what she is doing with her novels, so I will leave this up to the experts.

The narrator does an excellent job (again) delivering the personality and energy of each individual character.

Looking forward to the next book in this series

Wow

This was a great mystery. Intricate details of an investigation, a strong woman and her detective beau made a great story. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.

What an amazing book!

If there were just one thing I could praise about this book, it would be the protagonist. Angelina Bonaparte is the class of protagonist you don't see often. A middle-aged divorcee, with grown-up children and grandkids of their own, who decided that she wanted to do something different with her life and got herself a P.I. license. A woman who is not afraid of her body, who carry a healthy sexual life and who makes no secret about how she keeps herself fit and attractive: she works for it.

But it would be unjust to the rest of the things that makes this an amazing book. The plot is fantastic, the writing compelling and perfectly paced, so you simply don't want to stop.

And the simply glorious multiculturality of it! Angelina is of Sicilian origin, her boyfriend, Polish, her associated, Japanese, her client, Serbian. And it feels like a truly necessary and refreshing, so welcoming slice of life!

I'll say this: I'm dying to submerge myself in the rest of the series. Here to a new favourite author.

Regarding Kieren Calland Metts narration, what can I say? It's superb. There are so many characters, so many different accents, and it must have been terribly difficult to manage and keep everybody straight, but she does it. Amazing job!

Great book.

Oh I loved this book. It reminded me of Kinsey Millhone series by Sue Grafton. Angelina is a character you like from the very start. There is a little romance in this book but it's a good clean read. Kieren Calland Metts does a wonderful job of narrating this audio book. She really brings the story to life.

I liked the story, I thought it was interesting and the author had me intruged. I wanted to see where she would take us with the story. It does have slow moments and the author does give us information that I did not really think is needed, but other then this it is OK.
However, I did not like the narrator. The one thing I dislike in a narration is when the narrator has a monotone voice. It really drags the book for me and it takes me longer to finish listening to the audiobook.
I noticed that other reviewers loved her and others might also like her too but she is not for me.

A little silver dragon breathing fire.

This, the second of the Angelina Bonaparte mystery stories, sees the 50 years old private eye of Scicilian background continuing to explore her relationship with the detective of Polish parents whilst investigating the strange case of a young woman apparently becoming the beneficiary of multi millions after her always impoverished parents are murdered in a shooting at their small shop. The woman is upset - she had always been denied everything whilst growing up, even education, on the grounds that they could not afford it, and the family had lived very frugally. Why, with such a fortune in the bank? And where had the money come from in the first place?

An interesting investigative story which, sadly, is almost swamped by the close following of Ms.Bonaparte's personal life. This reader would have preferred a little more about the mystery and fewer references to everything eaten or worn (and, in particular, the underware) by the P.I. But overall it is an enjoyable, easy listen cozy book, quite well read by Kristen Collard Metts. Her voicings of the other characters is variable: sometimes distinguished by an altered accent rather than tone or timbre and occasionally well differentiated, sometimes actually lost altogether during the course of a onveration. But her real difficulty is in attempting to naturally voice male protagonists. Apart from this, she reads with clarity, paces herself well
and has good intonation.

My thanks to the rights holder of Cash Kills, for freely gifting me a complimentary copy, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. It seems that Ms.Bonaparte is finally, at 50 and with a stable love life again, growing up. She infuriates me - but I still enjoy the stories!
