Publisher's Summary

To kick off a winter writing retreat, Cat and her handyman boyfriend, Seth, escort the aspiring authors to a nearby ski resort, hoping that some fresh cold air will wake up their creative muses. But instead of hitting the slopes, they hit the bar - and before long, a tipsy romance novelist named Christina is keeping herself warm with a local ski bum who might have neglected to tell her about his upcoming wedding.

Next thing Cat knows, her uncle, the town sheriff, informs her that the young man's been found dead in a hot tub - and Christina shows up crying and covered in blood. Now, between a murder mystery, the theft of a rare Hemingway edition, and the arrival of a black-clad stranger in snowy Aspen Hills, Cat's afraid everything's going downhill....

Decent cozy mystery

This is an enjoyable cozy mystery. I find the continuation of the intrigue surrounding surrounding the Cat's dead ex-husband from the first book adds an additional layer of interest to this series. Sometimes Cat is a bit of a wet blanket about her own retreat, but otherwise I like the cast of central characters. Light and easy to read.

I'm done

I wasn't able to finish this book. The characters seem unrealistic and flat. Cat herself seems unhappy and disingenuous. The idea of a college being a haven for offspring of the mafia is just stupid. I won't be getting the next book in this series. C.S.E. Cooney is no help as narrator. She's not one of my favorites.

Fatality by Firelight review

Enjoyed the story but the narrator's voice was distracting and somewhat stilted to listen to sometimes making it difficult to finish.

Every book is making it more interesting!

I love cozy mysteries and this one is shaping up nicely. Cat is the owner of a Writers Resort in a college town found in Colorado. The secrets surrounding this small college town are slowly rising to the surface after one murder in Cat's home (bk1) and now an almost kidnapping (bk2). And we are coming closer to the answers of the questions dealing with her x-husband's death.
An enjoyable listen, and I'm looking forward to book 3

Still enjoying this series

I'm still enjoying this series. I was hoping the first in the series wasn't "beginners luck." The characters are well rounded and are constantly growing. I hope the next in the series comes quickly as I'm already wondering what trouble Cat can get herself into.

Writer’s Workshop

Kat is about to host beer second work shop in her Aspen home. Her relationship with Seth is heating up and she’s finding more clues in her ex-husband’s death. Great narration.

Couldn’t Finish

I read the first book and thought I’d try the audible version for the second in the series. Didn’t get past chapter 3…the narrator emphasized every single SYL. LA. BLE. Precisely. In such a way that it was unbearable. A wasted credit.

Boring. Tedious.

Reader mispronounced obvious words. The story was trite, tedious and unimaginative. Dialogue was leaden and predictable.

Looking for light mystery-THIS ISN'T IT!!!

I read the poor review on the first book in this series and another review said the second book was better so I decided to give it a try anyway. Highly disappointed in both books. Terrible weak plot, poor narration, narrator mixed up voices, all of the voices sounded the same a lot of the time. Don't waste your credits on this series. I hate that I wasted credits on these two books. I hope this review saves others from my fate.

I've found another favorite writer!

I love listening about Cat. You want her to find the answers to her questions.
