Book 3 as good as 1 & 2

I continue to listen to this series and find it very good. The book does not take itself to seriously so it makes it easy to listen to. The story is good but the light hearted approach makes it such a good listen.

Fantastic series

This is the third book in this series and is as good as the first two. Mackenzie is hired to find out who's robbing from the rich in an affluent neighborhood, in the end Ronnie's third secret is revealed. You will have to listen to the audible to find out what it is, it surprised me! I'm excited for the next book to be released on audible.

Scott Ellis is perfect as narrator for this series, I was thrilled to find he narrates all I've listened to do far.

I received a copy of this audible free at my request. I'm thrilled to be able to leave my review. *All comments in my review are strictly my own thoughts and opinions.*

Awesome story!

As usual, the story is mixed with an array of characters and excellent narration. The plot continues to surprise you making want to keep driving around just to keep the book going. The humor of Mackenzie August is incredible and had me laughing out loud several times. Scott does an incredible job. I can't wait for the next book!

Humorous and quirky

This mystery is just as humorous and quirky as the previous books in this series, but it's not quite as engaging. The characters are great, though, and
Scott Ellis has really made these characters his. His performance is outstanding.

The next book in the series was previewed at the end of this one and I can't wait to review it.

Note: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Mackenzie August Returns!

This was another fine entry in the series. This time, August has to investigate a string of burglaries in a rather exclusive neighborhood. Secrets abound and nothing is quite what it seems. Meanwhile, Mackenzie investigates the death of one of the women he dated while continuing to try to sort out his feelings for Veronica Summers. Good stuff. With a wonderful supporting cast, August's laugh out loud humor, and another fantastic performance by Scott Ellis, this one is fun! I wish the author (who writes as Alan Lee) and Audible would go ahead and have the rest of the books in the series recorded. Scott Ellis fits these books perfectly! More please!

Love, Love, Love this series!!!!

Mackenzie August is a great character and this is a great series!!

I think this listen benefits from having listened to the first two books (it helps to understand who Kicks is and why the Cristiano Ronaldo lookalike sleeps on Mackenzie's floor) but it is a good enough mystery on its own. There are actually three mysteries, all of them complex enough not to be an easy solve, and all being treated to the special Mackenzie August wit and intellect. I swear my vocabulary grows from just listening to this book.

All is revealed in the end of this really fun and funny (well, Mackenzie is funny anyway) and the seriously messed up trio of mysteries are solved. There should definitely be a book four (based on how this one ended) but unfortunately, it's not yet available.
