A very good romantic suspense!

This is the second book I have listened to of this author's and I have to say she is very good at writing mysteries that you are unable to guess who is guilty until the book is just about finished just how I like a book to be. There is also a sweet dog in the book for animal lovers!
I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed to listen to on Audible. This review is my own honest opinion

The action in this Kate Nash mystery never stops to catch it’s breath

That’s the way I like it. I enjoyed Kate, her partner Amy and good friend Ryan. Susan’s writing kept me in the middle of the action. I held my breath with each threat to my friends’ lives and I don’t think I calmed down until the stunning resolution. An entertaining read.

What an Ending!

this book has everything you want in it. Mystery, suspense, action, adventure and a hint of romance. Kate Nash and her business partner Amy are bound and determined to solve the case of the disappearance of Kate's friend Lizzie Smith. However, you'll never guess the ending. it kept me listening every time I got a chance. Very good book; awesome job to the author! I can't wait to listen to book 2.

Narrator took away from the story

The story was engaging, but not anything special. The narrator was awful. Her voice never showed emotion, everything sounded the same - anger, fear, excitement all sounded the same. Her Canadian showed a lot, and wasn’t believable for a St Louis native.

Enjoyable!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! The characters were well-written and believable, and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out who the murderer was as Kate and her friends pieced the clues together. Loved the surprise ending!

Finding a good mystery is great

This is the first book by this author I have read or listened to but I have already download the next book.because I enjoyed it. The mystery was good but I had worked out what was going on by the end, this didn't detract from the story it was just nice to know I was right. The characters are a tight knit group and work well together, it even had the add fun of a dog. There was a number of twists in the book, as they tried to work out why the group of friends was being killed and even if the high body count was all murders. I am off to start the next book.
Kate is worried when an old friend doesn't turn up for a meeting she had arranged but what is even more worrying is the red laser dot on her chest. Is someone trying to kill her? And what happened to Lizzy? The police can't do anything because she is an adult and needs to be missing for 48 hours before they can start looking for her, even with the shooting accruing. It's a good job Kate is one half of a private investigation team. With the added help of another friend Kate and her friends look back into he past for some answers because they use to be a group of nine and now they are down to six. Two murders, an accident and now a disappearance they are either the unluckiest group of friends or someone is taking them out one at a time. Can Kate work out the connection before anymore of her friends or even herself is killed? And do it all while still solving her own cases? She can't let clients or her partner who has nothing to do with the past, down.
I liked the narrator with the exception of one voice it was just to high pitched and squeaky.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So Bad Its Good? No.. it is Bad!

This is a USA co called cosy crime book. I say so called because if they are all like this we are in trouble! The plot is to say the least pallid. You will not only need to suspend belief, but forget it completely.

The body count is very high, and no character seems to mourn, or indeed care a close friend is dead, just who is next.. The narration is terrible, flat and uninteresting.

Yet, there is a long series of these audio books, so mayby I am missing something? No. Try this at your peril, but at least with Audible you can send it back!
