Publisher's Summary

Being an undercover poison taster for the rich and famous might sound glamorous, but for Isobel Avery it means stomaching bad clients and even worse coffee. Join her as she protects the sexy client she'd like to strangle, dodges the terrifying loan shark, and hunts down the bad guy.

A fresh and funny romantic mystery series about a witty, down-to-earth heroine with a job you've never seen before.

Please note: As shown in the sample, the Australian heroine is not given an accent in this audiobook. This decision was made because the series is set in the US, and early listeners found it easier to listen to and get immersed in the story without continually switching between accents.

    "Listening to the book"

    I found the book narration pretty good, the book was funny but when I went back to purchase book two I couldn't get the Audio Frustrating.

    "A humorous & fun cozy mystery"

    The premise to this series is so intriguing & I love to go "behind the scenes" of a poison taste testers world. I also really enjoyed the chemistry & banter between Izzy & Conner, plus the addition of Etta as a character was brilliant!
    I was a little bummed that Izzy didn't have an Australian accent.. this was compounded by the fact that her roommate Oliver was British & he had a British accent. So if Izzy is Australian, why does she have no accent at all? It was just strange, but not a deal breaker. The narration was done well & really brought all the characters to life.
    I was provided this audiobook & voluntarily reviewed it.

    Story
    "A Fun ride"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, but it's an interesting premise. That's the first thing that caught my eye. A professional taste-tester turned amateur sleuth. How does that not catch your eye?


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Nikiya's reading was decent. However, the main character is supposed to be Austrailian but there isn't a hint of an accent. This annoyed me throughout the book because it was mentioned often and was one of Isobel's defining characteristics. That said, the accents that were given to the other characters--including some accents that came out of nowhere and didn't make sense--were not very good, so that may be why she opted out of doing Isobel's.


    Any additional comments?

    Isobel is very immature for her age. I liked her overall, but the only way I could continue reading the series would be if she grew more as a character in the subsequent books. She didn't take her job very seriously even though she was in desperate need of cash and the job in question involved ingesting poison so that it doesn't kill the person you're hired to protect. I'm all for a strong, smart-mouthed female character--they're my favorites--and I know the book was supposed to be funny, but there's a thin line between quirky and annoying and a few times Isobel crossed it. Fortunately, it was only a few times.<br/><br/>I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily reviewed this story.

    "I loved it!!!"

    Chelsea Field is a new author to me and Nikita Palombi is a new narrator to me. I found this book to be original and a fun listen. Although the main character is Australian, the narrator did not give her the accent. I thought this was a fun, light mystery that was perfect for relaxing. The story is not overly suspenseful, but cheerful with the quirky characters and action. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and.or publisher. This book is part of a series and is a standalone listen.

    "Good for cozy fun"

    A funny cozy mystery. Meet Isobel Avery an Australian, who new home is now USA. She has started a new profession and meet a few colorful friends. She has started a new profession and meet a few colorful friends. Unfortunate for her, what she does is secret and much of what goes on in the organization, too, but this is the only job that pays enough to eliminate her financial obligations.

    Buoyant by the opportunity to settle her debts she left behind, she still could not control her inquisitiveness, nor looking for the secrets of her first assignment. I really enjoyed the chemistry &amp; banter between Izzy &amp; Conner. Of course there is sexually innuendo between them, but I am anxious to discover if Izzy will be promoted to another position in the organization.

    The disappointment is the lack of the Australian a accent.

    Story
    "Not my cup of tea"

    Psychological thrillers and mysteries are the books I generally listen to, along with a few others. This book came up as a suggestion so I decided to give it a try. I started listening to it three different times before I could finally managed to finish it. Perhaps others will find it enjoyable, but I simply found it boring and ridiculous. The premise was totally absurd, but putting that aside and taking it simply as a silly, light-hearted diversion, I still did not enjoy it, and there were far too many crude references to body parts and sexual thoughts that could easily have been rephrased or left out altogether. I really have no desire to know what the character's sphincter is doing, nor do I enjoying hearing about her almost continual sexual thoughts regarding every male character in the story. I may have laughed once or twice, but I am not even sure about that. Basically, it was a total waste of my time and money.

    "Eat, Pray, Die"

    Funny story. It kept me interested. The narrator was great. I didn't get jerked out of the story like happens sometimes with other narrators. This isn't x-rated, so I liked it even more. I recommend it to you

    "Loved it!!!"

    Greet cozy mystery and the story was fun to listen to. But if you don't want to be having a snooze fest the whole time I suggest you change the story speed to 1.25. But overall very entertaining.

    "Undecided."

    I think this book would be easier to read than to listen to. I'd try to make the main character less annoying. For someone that knew she'd be owed a loan shark money she sure went around unawares. SMH.
