Sabrina Solves Her Greatest Mystery

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

Another great cozy mystery by one of my favorite author. This 5th book in the Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery Series, is the culmination of a personal drama that has been consuming our amateur sleuth Sabrina. Together with her boyfriend David, she follows the clues to solve a murder investigation that brings back memories of her sister's disappearance. This trail brings them to solve that cold case as well, reopening wounds that have never properly healed. There are two mysteries that are unveiled throughout the narration and though similar, each one has a trail of its own that needs to be followed.
Because of the protagonist's personal drama, this is not one of the "coziest" of stories, but the listening experience is still an enjoyable one. Wonderful writing and exceptional narration makes this audiobook a must on your listening list.

BEST YET FROM THIS SERIES

COOKIES with a SIDE of MURDER is the fifth book in the Daley Buzz Cozy Mysteries. While each will probably stand on its own, it’s probably best to read each in the order of release.

The best release yet in this series. Ms. Potts has really grown as an author and it shows!

While still a good cozy mystery for teens, there is plenty of suspense and intrigue to keep this adult on the edge of her seat and holding her breath in many places.

I love David and Sabrina together. Their romance is on a slow burn and I continue to hope for a ring for Sabrina.

Narration: Lisa Beacom did a much better job of slowing down and enjoying the story herself. That allows the listener to enjoy it too! Thank you for bringing out all of the emotions.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Investigating with cookies!

After listening to the first four books, I found that I have been taken with these characters and couldn't wait to listen to this one. With so much going on in this little town, when David is called to see a body dug up in an empty lot, it's only a matter of time before Sabrina is on the scene wanting the details. But these are details she is not ready to hear. Once she finds out what this case entails, she and David are off and running, trying to solve a cold case that hasn't had a lead in 11 years. These two work so well together, a little good cop, bad cop at times, but the truly raw questions that Sabrina always brings up makes the suspects squirm and makes each one a viable culprit. I love the way Meredith Potts write these cozies, with a touch of humor, the warmth of family and the feeling a whodunnit til the very end. And this one is so satisfying giving closure to all affected by this one.

Continued narration by Lisa Beacom keeps the story going with her voices. I love that in each story, she uses the same voices for each character, so as we get to know them, we know exactly who is speaking. She really gives the story a feeling of familiarity for a great listen.

Great series.

Another great story in this series. This is my favorite so far. While a construction company was digging, a skeleton was found. It turns out it is Sabrina's missing sister. She is victim of murder. Sabrina is determined to help find out who killed her sister and why.

I am glad that Sabrina and family finally have closure concerning her sister. As always, the narration for good. I recommend this book and this series,

Cookies with a side of Murder

Sabrina finally gets the answers she has waited so long for in this cozy mystery. Sadly her sisters body is finally found. Digging 11 years in the past makes it rough. Making people remember things and checking alibis from that long ago does not make this case easy. But sticking it out is what she does best. The story is fun yet sad. Nice job on the narration.

Book 5 in Daley Buzz series

Book 5 in the Daley Buzz Mystery. I liked this book but I really missed the interaction with her dog Snickerdoodle he is mentioned a few time but not really a part of the story. I did think that the interaction between Sabrina and her boyfriend was much more real in this book. I love that the characters are growing and we are getting to know them more with each book. I was happy to see that the murder of Sabrina's sister Jessica is going to be put to rest. Lisa Beacon once again does a great job of narrating this audio book. I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.

Best in this Series!

This book is my favorite in the series so far. It offers a more personal perspective of Sabrina and David's characters, probably because the crime they are investigating has personal ties. I feel this book is more well-written than others in the series. It seemed to have a better flow and style - for example, the word "deadpan" was used appropriately in just a few places rather than stuck in every few minutes. The performance was, as always by this narrator, outstanding. This narrator does a great job of distinguishing between characters just by changing the inflection a little bit.
