Sabrina Daley is still haunted by the mysterious disappearance of her sister 10 years before. Even though the case went cold long ago, she keeps holding out hope that one day she will discover what happened to her sister. Sabrina's life is turned upside down again when she discovers her friend's dead body in the alley way behind her family's coffee shop. If that isn't bad enough, after a week of investigating, the local police appear to be stumped. Terrified about a second case going cold in town, Sabrina decides to take matters into her own hands. She sets out on her own, determined not to give up until she has brought her friend's killer to justice.

A fun new cozy series!

This was a fun cozy, with the classic love story & comfort foods. But what I liked the best is that there is a longer running story line (which I think will go into book 2) which makes the series hook you in and want to know what happens next.
The characters are interesting & the heroine is inquisitive & persistent as she hunts down the clues. The narration was very well done, I especially loved the mother/grandmother because of their sass.
An overall fun lighthearted series & an interesting mystery to unravel.
I was provided this review copy & gave my honest review

Easy Listening

I got a copy of this audio book in exchange for a voluntary review.
This was an okay story. Entertaining and easy read. This is the first book in a series and I do feel their is some room for improvement on developing the characters which I hope she does in the following books in the series.

Wonderful under mystery!

Chocolate with a Side of Murder
Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery, Book 1
By: Meredith Potts
Narrated by: Lainie Pahos
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I really enjoyed this busy, fast paced murder mystery. There were many interesting characters, twists and turns, great plot, and exciting side interests. The main gal sure is pushy to find the murderer, lol.
The narrator was just perfect for this book. The emotions, timing, the transition, and voices all were done wonderfully. Great job!

Ok.

I love cozy mysteries, but this one didn’t really grab me like most. I’m not sure where the disconnect was but I didn’t really feel for the characters. I expected there to be more about the missing sister but it was more of a side note. I also would have expected her police boyfriend to be involved more but it was more her investigating and asking everyone questions the whole time. The narrator did a good job but needed some editing as there are a few repeat spots. Overall ok but I don’t think i will pursue the series further. I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A fun cozy!

Part owner and barrista in the family coffee shop and involved with the local police detective, Sabrina notices some odd things happening in their town, the worst of which was finding the dead body of friend and neighboring Chocolatier in the alley behind their shops. She and boyfriend bounce ideas off each other when the easy suspect has a solid alibi, and as the days go on without solid evidence she feels driven to poke around and get in the face of each suspect. Very interesting in spite of the author leaving us dangling and wanting to know lots more about the other odd happenings in town! Definitely worth the read!
It seems that I bought the ebook on sale in August 2017 and it's been sitting in my TBR pile. Then in February 2018 it was on offer from AudioBookBOOM and my request was fulfilled!
Lainie Pahos is the creative narrator who does a great job!

I am going to find the murderer.

This was a pretty good book. I have seen this author before and has wanted to try her books. So when i was gifted this book for an honest review, i knew this was my chance to see how i would like this author. I enjoyed the story and the characters. However, Sabrina was very very pushy with her questioning. But she got the job done. I would like to listen to more in this series.

Chocolate with a Side of Murder

Sabrina is haunted by the disappearance of her sister still after 10 years with no answer. Then she stumbles onto a body in the alley. And knows she must help her friend get justice. The characters in the story are fun and interesting. And for a small town lots of secrets are hiding! Sabrina does not back down either she goes after what she needs for justice! Nice job on the narration.
