Cape Cod is shaken by another murder, and it's up to amateur sleuth Chloe Cook to find the killer. But she's going to have to work fast. Not only is there a handful of suspects on the loose, but one of Chloe's good friends is wrongfully suspected of the crime by the local police detective.

Enjoyable continuation of the series....

Deadly Resentment carries on the Chloe Cook cozy mystery series. Each book in the series follows the same format - we meet the despised victim right before death, the police accuse one of Chloe’s friends of the crime, and Chloe jumps in to find the right killer. However, despite the similarity, the author keeps each story fresh and interesting with completely different motives, methods, and personalities. Once again, I couldn’t guess the guilty party until the big reveal.

Begley does a good job with the narration. Her voice is light and fun, and she differentiates well between the characters.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Theatre Can Be Deadly

When her best friend is accused of the murder of a local low-life, Chloe swings into action to find the real killer, much to the chagrin of the local police.
This is a well plotted mystery with plenty of likely though mostly unlikable suspects and heroine who is fun to follow through her investigations.
The audio version has a few bad edits (repeated lines) but the book is very well read.
At 2.5 hrs, it's a perfect read for a lazy afternoon or a quick trip out of town.

Fun and Cozy!

I really enjoyed this listen by Kayla Michelle. Cozy mysteries to me are refreshing listens that are short and typically solved by someone outside the police. Renee Dorian Begley did a great performance with this book. I enjoyed the story with all of its coincidences and how it was solved. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more by this author and narrator in the future.

Chloe is at again

Enjoyed this story. Chloe again, on her own, helps another friend who is in on the police list of suspects for a murder. Again, she questions suspects against the police detectives wishes.

The stories in this series are cute and enjoyable. The narrator did a great job. Again my only negative opinion is i wish they were longer, i received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Deadly Resentment

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

I was a good mystery complete with twists and turns.
The characters are interesting and the story line kept me engaged.
Chloe's best friend is a suspect in a murder but Chloe knows she couldn't have done it. Find out how she proves that shes innocent!
Its a short listen & I would recommend.

Cute Cozy Mystery aka Reunions can be Deadly

I received a free copy of this title in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

I very much enjoyed this brief, but intriguing cozy mystery,. Chloe Cook is a cute character with a seeming knack for finding trouble, or perhaps is someone that trouble loves to follow, I'm unclear here but who cares. I have not listened to, nor read, the first book in this series, but I shall do so now, sweet and short is great for holidays, or for the treadmill which is where I listened to this one.

Renee narrates this marvellously, she entirely suits the character of Chloe.

I loved Chloe, and her dog Rufus, I have an image of them both bouncing around Cape Cod finding clues and confounding Detectives.
