same story over and over

The way daisy badgers the suspects is annoying. It is the same story over and over. Daisy, friend or relative accused of murder, daisy must investigate. Daisy badgers the suspect till they confess.

Daisy sweet Daisy...

Daisy is, well, kind of annoying. Not in a horrid way but in a too stupid to live way. Tho that probably isn’t super accurate either. It’s just that I found myself thinking “what in the ever lovin crap are you thinking?” I know she’s doing the detective work and that is, in itself, a risky position. It’s not that it’s stupid unrealistic but it’s annoying. For instance, she just goes to these folks that she suspects are murderers homes and antagonizes them. I’m a pretty calm person but I’d probably slap her if given the chance if she did this kind of thing. I guess that’s where we get our story from is her doing these things that are somewhat ridiculous. Books are not horrid but that’s why I bumped the star down on story. Just the semi unbelievable parts. The rest works fine.

Collection of Daisy Mc Dare books

This is my honest review. I was gifted this audio set and was so hoping to enjoy it. I have read other Daisy Mc Dare stories and found them enjoyable. I am a cozy fan. The stories were okay. I found them a bit repetitive. This happens when you listen to them one right after the other. My real problem was with the narration. Donna Soto just did not keep me wanting to listen. In fact I had a hard time listening to the end. I have found that a book can be made or lost in the narrator and that was so true for me with this collection.

SWEET SWEET AND MORE SWEET COZY MYSTERIES :)

If you're a dessert fan, you're sure to satisfy your sweet tooth with these cozy mysteries! While at times a tad too sweet for me, I thought these were adorable and warmly-written stories and I really enjoyed listening to them. Liked both the writing and the narration, and I think if you're a "cozy" mystery fan, this will be a very nice edition, and it's a super amazing value to get so many stories at once! :) :)

Stories ok, narration is rough...

I was so excited about this set, but I was sadly disappointed. Alas the stories are alright, but the narration kills it. Her voice with the background is ok, but her character voices are a struggle. The main character and granny sound ok, all others sound like she is trying to sound different,like you or I would when reading a child a story at bedtime. Her voice also makes the characters sound like old ladies instead of 30 somethings. I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Six Cozy Mysteries

I have listened to other books in this series and enjoy the characters. The stories are short and are solved, and involve food. I love the imagery the author incorporates into the books. Struggling with my diet, I found myself craving cupcakes. K.M. Morgan is a talented author and follows a proven formula for the books. Donna Soto was a new to me narrator. Her voice is smooth and eloquent, although I would love more emotion put into the characters. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

Crazy Investigator

I enjoyed these six audiobooks. Each mystery is crazy and our investigator is daring. There is lots of fun contained in each story and the reader has a distinctive voice that makes the characters come to life.

All Basically the Same

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

There are six books in this Mystery Set [Books 5 - 10]. Each book is a standalone [with no cliffhanger endings] and can be read in any order.

Cozy mysteries are great for light entertainment with enjoyable characters and as the series progresses, the characters develop and the adventures they become involved with change as their abilities get better, their relationships change, or new characters are introduced. Unfortunately for this series, it was packaged together and every story as you progressed from book 5 to book 10 is basically the same. [maybe this series would have been more enjoyable if you don't read them all in a row] The victim is either married [or significant relationship] and has a mistress. Just before his death, there are multiple threatening arguments involving mistress/significant other and frequently some character with whom Daisy is familiar. These arguments are witnessed and in several books were described as witnessing a "reality show." Daisy solves each case by being confrontational and at times, just rude with whomever she interviews. The detective is passive/aggressive - one minute he is happy to have Daisy around and the next he is indifferent or angry with Daisy's presence. What I found odd about this series is that Daisy's boyfriend is a private investigator but he does not really get involved with any of the cases - leaving it all to his decorator girlfriend Daisy to go about investigating on her own. It might have been more interesting had he been involved or taught Daisy how to investigate a case.

The narration, overall, was fine. There were several occasions where words/phrases were repeated - likely not caught in the final quality control.

Good cozy mysteries & narration

I enjoy cozy Mysterys and these by the author are always delightful and with good narration by Donna Soto added a lot to them.

It’s not everyday that you get 6 * joy fullness !

K. W. Morgan excellent imagination and writing style is pure joy.
And here I got this joy six times.
Coupled with the excellent narration by Donna Soto created a perfect audiobook,
All you have to do is close your eyes and dive into the story feeling like you are there.
NOTHING CAN BE BETTER THEN THAT !!!

I full heartedly recommend this audiobook!


I believe that my review was honest even so that I got this audiobook for free.

Great series

What a fun series this is. The characters are all very quirky and there is lots of humour and banter.
The mysteries are short but entertaining and just long enough to enjoy listening to one whole story each day.
The narrator did a good job and I found her voice and expressions made very easy listening.

I would recommend reading the series in order to fully appreciate the lovable Daisy McDare. However, they work excellently as standalone stories. The box set is a fantastic way to collect this series. I loved it.
