Publisher's summary

Sweetfern Harbor Bed and Breakfast Cozy Mysteries can be enjoyed in one to two hours. It is perfect for those moments when you are waiting at an appointment or want to enjoy a quick listen.

Brenda Sheffield is thrilled to host the East Coast Acting Troupe in her inn set above the Atlantic Ocean. Excitement permeates the Sheffield Bed and Breakfast and injects new life in the small town of Sweetfern Harbor. Ellen Teague, the famous actress, will be given a large suite on the second floor. From the adjoining room, she will have access to her assistant, Chester Boyd. Chester caters to her every whim. Ellen is demanding and narcissistic. She is liked by very few members of the troupe who are there to perform "The Rich Game".

After the first performance at Harbor Park, Edward Graham pulls Brenda aside and tells her he has serious business to discuss with her. The lawyer informs her that Ellen Teague states she is the rightful owner of Sheffield Bed and Breakfast, not Brenda. Brenda argues her uncle’s will states she is the heir to his property. Ellen argues she and Randolph Sheffield signed an agreement that the bed and breakfast would be hers.

When Brenda confronts Ellen late at night, a loud argument ensues. Brenda’s raised voice awakens the cast members who were sound asleep. Brenda doesn’t think about this and goes to her apartment seething in anger. The next morning, she becomes fully alert when one of the cast members informs her that Ellen Teague is dead in her bed. As if this discovery isn’t shocking enough, Brenda is dismayed when Detective Mac Rivers narrows her down as his prime suspect and states she has the strongest motive for killing the star who demanded her rights to the bed and breakfast. Brenda and Mac are in love with one another, or at least that is what he told her when he gave her the promise ring the day before. The estrangement leaves Brenda to solve the murder case as soon as possible or Mac plans to serve the warrant for her arrest.

This will be no easy task, since at times all of the actors argued with Ellen. Combined with the fact that none of them cared for her egotistical behavior, they also had individual motives for wanting her dead. Brenda knows she is on her own. Will the 48 hours the detective gave her be enough to prove who the killer really is? It is the only way Brenda will avoid prison for the rest of her life, and she realizes time is of essence.

A Murder at a Bed and Breakfast

A cute story about a difficult actress who arrives at a B&B with her acting troup.. When she ends up dead, there were plenty of suspects, but the primary suspect seems to be the owner of the B&B. She is in a desparate rush to determine if the actual murderer is someone in the troup.

The story is a fun cozy mystery. I wasn't crazy about the narrator.

Worst Reader EVER

Typical Fern Harbor mystery - easy read and quaint story. The narrator is awful - like being read to by Alexa. Awkward pauses and monotonous, dull drone.

Who killed Ellen Teague?

Dead in Bed is A Sweetfern Harbor Mystery Book 2. Wendy Meadows has written an interesting cozy mystery. The narration is performed by Kasey Logan. Brenda is hosting a group of actors at her B and B. After Brenda is informed that actress Ellen Teague, claims that she owns the B and B, world war 3 begins! Ellen is murdered and Brenda has 48 hours to clear her name. I liked the fast pace and interesting characters. This is a wonderful cozy and I am looking forward to hearing the next book in the series. I received an arc for my honest review.

Nice cozy mystery

I liked this story much better than the previous one I listened to. Good characters and a good story. Ending was predictable, but still a nice mystery.

Now Brenda was on a deadline to Rove her own innocence, by finding the real killer. Her time is running out!

Enjoyed this book

Even though this is the 2nd book in the series and I didn't get the first I still very much enjoyed it. I liked this narrator's style and how the author told the story. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
