An epic crossover!

This has been my fav book of this entire series! For starters there’s a big life event that takes place at the beginning of the story. Then, Sabrina heads to LA to meet with the producers who bought her life story to make into a Tv show. Not only does the mystery take place in LA amongst the Hollywood cast & crew, but there’s an epic crossover when we found out the actress portraying Sabrina in the TV show is Hope Hadley! Meredith Potts (the author) has an entire cozy series herself that revolves around Hope Hadley, so this was a really special treat of 2 worlds colliding!!
Between the fun location of the mystery, the interesting cast of characters & the classic sleuthing from Sabrina, this was such a joy to listen to!

Unexpected Ending!! :-)

Cupcakes with a Side of Murder by Meredith Potts, narrated by Shelby Lewis is Book 10 in the Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery Series. I've followed this series from almost the beginning, and I've enjoyed each of the audiobooks. However, the narrator changes often, so it does take the listener a little time to adjust. Either way, after the way Book 9 in this series ended, I couldn't wait for Book 10 to come out! If you haven't read any of the books in this series, fans of cozies will be happy to hear that this one can also stand-alone.

I must say that Book 10 does seem to have a different feel than the others in the Daley Buzz series. First off, I think Potts has grown as a writer over the course of the series. While we still hear a bit of "he said" and "she said," it is less frequent. Her varied word choice makes listening easy on the ears and more enjoyable. Second, the storyline in Book 10 is all Sabrina, rather than Sabrina and her hubby. This is different than the other books, and it's awesome because it made the storyline unique to the rest and less predictable. :-) The last reason I feel this audiobook was different from the others in the series involves the ending, so I don't want to give it away. You'll have to listen to find out, but those of you who have read or listened to books by Ms. Potts will be pleasantly surprised. I didn't see it coming at all, but it totally makes sense! Was that planned? Authors are so tricky...in a good way! :-)

I struggled with rating the performance of narrator Shelby Lewis. Her voices for specific characters were fun and engaging, but I felt she was really slow moving and had unnecessary pauses here and there. Had that been it, I would have given her a rating of 4/5. However, there are multiple times throughout the recording where words, phrases, and sentences are repeated right after the other. Clearly, this is an editing issue, and I apologize to Ms. Lewis for giving a rating of 3/5 if it is not her responsibility to edit her work (I don't know how it all works...who's in charge of what, etc). Mistakes happen; we are human. I could have easily looked past it, had it only happened once or twice, but because there were more instances than that, my final rating for the performance category is 3/5 stars.

Cupcakes with a Side of Murder: Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery, Book 10 by Meredith Potts, narrated by Shelby Lewis gets my rating of 4/5 stars. I enjoyed the unique storyline, and I especially loved the surprise at the end! I recommend this audiobook to those who enjoy solving cases, as well as to fans of clean and cozy mysteries. Happy sleuthing!

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

Sabrina is out of her element!

cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth

First the wedding, then Sabrina heads off to Hollywood to see about the TV series about her life as a sleuth. Wake Up call here! She finds out that it's not the G-rated show mimicking reality but a money making ploy for the producer. Yes, he's the one who gets murdered. She is further frustrated by being excluded from the investigation by the LAPD. A great escape read!
Shelby Lewis is the perky narrator who does a great job.
I entered a giveaway and won the audio without expectations.

Fun mystery!

This is the 10th book in the Daley Buzz series. It stands alone but long time fans will enjoy this story the best. This story has a nice surprise that is even more fun than usual. Nicely read by narrator. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

The crossover event you’ve been waiting for.

Sabrina heads to Hollywood to observe the filming of the TV Show based on her life. Who knew she’d find herself in the middle of another murder investigation! Being away from home and without all of her normal resources, Sabrina finds herself working with a new partner.

I absolutely love all of Meredith Potts’ cozy mystery series. They are so much fun.

Shelby Lewis is a new narrator to me. I did enjoy her performance and look forward to seeing what performances she has done.
