Fun and Cozy!

Meredith Potts has a wonderful way of writing cozy mysteries that pull me in. I so enjoy this series featuring the Daley Buzz with Sabrina and David. This book is both a standalone listen and part of a series. This story has many suspects, and its fun finding the clues. I like how the author combines romance, humor and suspense in this book. Lisa Beacom performed this book wonderfully. I highly recommend this book!

A Christmas Mystery that Keeps on Giving

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Just days before Christmas another unexpected murder case forces Sabrina and David to look into the mystery that surrounds it. The uncanny power of deduction that Sabrina has developed soon brings the couple to follow a trail of clues and possible murderers. It is not a smooth ride and the pressure to solve the mystery before Christmas puts a damper on Sabrina's social and personal life. Having David share the burden is of great help however and the traditional happy ending will put us all in a celebratory mood.
Masterfully developed by the author and pleasantly interpreted by the narrator, this cozy murder mystery will keep you entertained and guessing to the end. Though part of a series it works well as a standalone.

The fun and suspense continues!

This series continues to be one of my favorite cozies, I can always count on Meredith Potts to give me a good story with some humor, a little romance and suspense. After Julie does not show up to the Christmas party, we find out she is missing....not only missing, but her body is found and the main suspect? Sabrina's ex-boyfriend. Knowing he is not capable of such a crime, Sabrina and David set out to find Julie's killer. With a cast of many, some we have met before and others that are new, we get to go experience Sabrina's hunches and clues on the quest to find the murderer, all before Christmas day! Will they solve this one quickly? Another winning story narrated by Lisa Beacom! Trials, dead ends, holiday tension and Snickerdoodle the dog, what more could we want in a cozy? Give this one a listen!

Fun Christmas Mystery!

This is the 7th book in the Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery series but it stands alone. A friend of Sabrina never shows up to the eagerly anticipated Christmas party. Disaster strikes and Sabrina investigates trying to bring some closure before Christmas. This was a fun, enjoyable Christmas story and very nicely narrated. I now want to read the rest of the books in the series. I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Just what I needed! :-)

Christmas Cookies with a Side of Murder by Meredith Potts, narrated by Lisa Beacom is Book 7 in the highly popular Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery series. Although I've only listened to Books 4-7, I feel like I really know the characters on a personal level. The descriptions and dialogue are written in a way that make me feel I am part of the storyline from page 1. Perhaps one day I will purchase the first few books in the series, but for those of you who are wondering if it is necessary to start from the beginning, I want you to know that I was easily able to get the gist of what happened prior to Book 4, and missing out on Books 1-3 did not affect my overall understanding and enjoyment of Books 4-7. If I could go back and do it again, yes, I would start with Book 1, but at the time, I didn't know I would enjoy the series as much as I do! :-) On that note, I recommend this book and series to lovers of cozy mysteries, as well as those looking for a nice escape from a stressful or long workday.

The narration by Lisa Beacom is fun and entertaining. Her consistency throughout the series makes for easy listening. It's nice to hear a professionally recorded and edited book, without interruptions, unnecesary pauses, and/or mispronounced words. She is the voice of Sabrina, the main character, and I hope she continues to be the one I hear in the future books!

I may sound contradictory here, but the one area I feel could use improvement is actually the same area I found to be a strength of Meredith Potts' writing: dialogue. While the dialogue does move the story along at a fast pace, I felt it was repetitious at times, both within the book and across the series, as a whole. A couple times, I felt like I had somehow already heard parts of the book because it seemed like some of the wording was an exact match to something that had already been said in previous pages and/or past books. I could be wrong, and maybe it came from listening to the samples before purchasing, but some parts just sounded all too familiar. Varying the word choice, with a focus on some of the dialogue, could fix this issue, without the worry of interfering with the plot. It would also jump my rating from 4 to 5.

Overall, Chrismas Cookies with a Side of Murder: Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery Series, Book 7 by Meredith Potts, narrated by Lisa Beacom is enjoyable, entertaining, fun, and engaging. I plan to continue with the series, and I'm looking forward to the next book to be released.

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)

Very good

I am really starting to get into this genre! This is another cozy mystery that I really enjoyed. It's funny and lighthearted, yet written well enough to hold my interest and keep me wanting to know how it turns out. :)

Great Read

Christmas Cookies with a Side of Murder (Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery, #7) by Meredith Potts was a great read. Sabrina finds herself investigating another murder. Yet this time it's during the holidays, a time that is supposed to be joyous. I can't wait to read more by Meredith Potts.
