Enjoyable cozy

Enjoyable little cozy read through Whispersync/Immersion reading. The narrator does a great job of voicing all the different characters.

The book is populated by zany, quirky characters with the main ones being members of the Chubby Chicks Club. One of their members die and two members, Cat and Anna Mae, work together to prove it wasn't a suicide and to solve the murder. The Quirky and appealing nature of these characters makes it possible to overlook the few implausible parts of the story while some of the situations they find themselves in are truly funny.

Dying for Dinner Rolls

Enjoyable mystery that was well narrated.

The main character is still smarting from the recent murder of her father, seeing connected crime and suspects everwhere. Turns out, she wasn't completely wrong!

This is another ordinary-people-solve-crimes series, which I happen to like. If that isn't your thing, you may not like this series

Dying for Dinner Rolls

In this cozy mystery, a woman is murdered in her home. THinking it a suicide, the police declined to investigate. The main character's father had recently been murdered and she was unwilling to accept suicide as an option.

I thought this was a well-done mystery, packed with loads of entertainment in under 5 hours.

Ms. Rustin did a great job of narrating.

I look forward to the next installment!

If you can ignore the authors racial stereotypeing

Author stereotypes everyone and it really gets on my nerves but if you get past that. Its an enjoyable book. It took me a few times to start it but once I did and really listened to what was going on I really liked it.

Dying for a good audio book

I really enjoyed this book. I recognised the picture and sort of remembered reading it or it was still sat on my kindle to be read so I got the audio book version. So glad I did because I had read it and it was on my list to find out what happens in the rest of the series but never got around to, now I will finally find out what happens because the whole series is on audible. It is a light hearted, humorous mystery that had me chuckling. I liked the characters because they were quirky and very entertaining and I enjoyed the mystery with all the twists it took while questioning the suspects. The main murder did get solved but I think it might take all four books to get to the bottom of the crossword killer can't wait to find out.
Cat a mother of two sets of twins is drawn into playing amateur sleuths when attending a dinner party for her group the chubby chicks club. One of the members returns home for some bread rolls and never comes back. The rest of the club members find her dead of an apparent suicide and despite one of the members being a cop it is Cat and her friend Anne Mae that find themselves looking for the killer and impersonating a police officer to get to the bottom of it. The victim had just brought a vase in a mystery box and it was packaged in a news paper where the crossword was filled in with purple ink and the words your next, just like the paper found at Cat's fathers crime scene. Could the same killer be involved?
I liked the narrator she used a variety of very good voices to bring the characters to life.
