Publisher's Summary

It appears Roger may have a secret love interest. Both Aggie and Betty are curious to learn more about this mysterious person named Pat that has Roger doing things out of his comfort zone, like going to a park to see the fireworks and making dinner reservations for an expensive restaurant. Being that Roger is a notorious cheapskate, and a bit of a snob, Aggie and Betty are dying to get a look at the person responsible for his transformation.

As Aggie and Betty indulge in some snooping, they accidentally stumble over a dead body that helps to solve a mystery. Unfortunately, it’s not the mystery they’d set out to solve. Will they ever learn more about Roger’s significant other?

Join Aggie, Betty, and Roger in this comical and quirky 4th of July mystery to find out.

Fun Short Story!

Very short story, fast-paced and fun. I like the characters and the storyline. The narration was well done. Adam Schulmerich has a great voice, easy to understand. I would love to read more about these characters! I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

This was a really good short story to listen to. It has a great combination of mystery and suspense. The narrator has a wonderful voice making each character stand out. Great read for a lunchtime listen.

Cute Short Story

I was not sure how I was going to like a 38 minute mystery. The premise had me very interested though. After listening to this short story I really want to listen to some more books in the series.
It is not a very exciting mystery but it sucks you into the series.
The characters were all very likeable and feel like old friends. There were also some very funny bits (coffee related) and sweet bits. Lastly, there is a question I just want to know the answer too.
I cannot wait to listen to another in the series.
Adam Schulmerich does a great job with the narration and has great inflection and distinct voices for each majour and minour character.

A Fun Quick Listen!!

This is a fun and quick listen, a cozy mystery that will give you a nice little escape from reality. If you enjoy cozy mysteries then you have to give this story (and the series) a chance. The story is well written and really pulls you in from the start. You don't have to have read/listened to any of the other stories in this series to enjoy this one. The narration was well done too. Adam Schulmerich does an excellent job. His character voices are great (even the females) and he expresses the proper emotions with ease. Overall, a really enjoyable listen and one I will highly recommend to my friends.

A good quick read!

I received a free copy of Coffee, Fireworks and Murder by Michelle Ann Hollstein, and narrated by Adam Schulmerich in exchange for an unbiased review. This review copy Audio Book was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audio Book Boom.

This was a good little mystery for the short commute. The story was fun, and entertaining. Adam Schulmerich did a great job keeping the story smoothly flowing. It's a story I will listen to again.

Coffee, Fireworks and Murder

This is a super quick listen that has Aggie and her crew. In this one Aggie doesn’t get herself into too much trouble but is a very important witness to help solve a crime. Another great story with Aggie Underhill.

a quick but lovely listen

I haven't read the rest of the Aggie Underhill mystery's but I didn't feel like I needed to have any backstory to understand what was going on. Betty and Aggie's curiosity about Roger's date was cute and I enjoyed following along as they planned to spy on Roger at the park just so they could find out more about this mystery person he was seeing.

The murder mystery was incidental and solved rather quickly. I think this could have been a much longer book. Michelle Ann Hollstein did a good job of drawing the reader in and making them feel as though they were there with Betty and Aggie. I believe this is considered a "cozy mystery" and this was my first experience with one and I liked it! It was a lovely listen.

Adam Schulmerich did an excellent job at narrating this audio book short story. I really think he has the perfect narration style for this genre. Not only that but he does an EXCELLENT female voice with no sign of the falsetto that some male narrators fall back on.

Excellent quick listen if you're commuting or wanting to listen to something over your lunch break

P.S. If you keep track of this sort of thing, there was no profanity or graphic descriptions of violence.

Coffee, Fireworks and Murder

Aggie is quite the fun character in this series. She seems to be the level headed one of the bunch. And of course Betty is always into something. Roger on the other had is always looking for someone's downfall. This is a short and cute story. I hope to find out who Roger was meeting in a later book.

Aggie, Betty and Roger

Michelle Ann Hollstein has written a very fun short story in Coffee, Fireworks and Murder. I love how it appears that Roger has a love interest, and Betty remains on the prowl. Aggie is my favorite character and has many layers. Adam Schulmerich was wonderful bringing these friends to life as they discovered another dead body. For a short story, this book was perfect in its development and plot. Loved how the killer was revealed.
