Publisher's Summary

When a young woman shows up dead in Campus Creek, amateur sleuth Pepper Brooks is warned not to get involved. She's fine with that. It's her final quarter of college, and she's immersed in Hemingway and planning her future. Plus, things are already complicated enough trying to figure out where everything stands with Alex, her maybe-boyfriend. 

But when two more fair-haired women show up drowned, Pepper literally can't stay away. Especially when her best friend may be the next one For Whom the Bell Tolls. 

Listeners, this is the second book in a literary-themed cozy series. If you ever feel inclined to quote classic literature, sniff books when no one is looking, and think dogs are a girl's best friend - right up there with a good book - you're going to love Pepper and her Pine Crest friends. And if Hemingway's not your jam, no worries, each book features a different classic author. ;) Happy listening!

Cozy mysteries that are addicting

I am loving the cozy mysteries written by Eryn Scott that I have read/listened too. The narrator Michelle Ames is new to me and I enjoyed her performance as she brought this cozy mystery to life for me. One of the unusual and most enjoyable things about this book was the literary references which I found highly entertaining as Pepper sifted through the clues and jumped to conclusions. 

This was a a book filled with enough danger, suspense secrets and clues to satisfy my detective spirit. The intrigue and suspense kept me on the edge of my seat as I listened to this story, . 

There are several twists, turns and surprises in Literally Murder as Pepper, Olivia and Alex follow the clues and I have to say that I was taken by surprise on a couple of occasions. . 

I am enjoying these stories and look forward to listening to more once available. Pepper has grown on me although her constant accusations of guilt and jumping to conclusions do at times frustrate me and make me want to rip my hair out.

Murder on campus

ya-only-means-no-gratuitous-erotica, cozy-mystery, university, law-enforcement, amateur-sleuth, murder-investigation, family-dynamics, friendship

It's Pepper's last year as an undergrad and she really hopes to never see a murdered corpse ever again. No such luck. Her cop friend and his detective father don't want her investigating but her other friends (and a painfully shy new one) insist that she can find out more than the authorities can because the victim(s) are also students at their university. Let the sleuthing begin! Good read!
Michella Ames is a rock star in her audio interpretation.

Great cozy

Great cozy! 2nd in the series but would work great as a stand alone. Love the evolution of the characters and can’t wait to see where they go next. I was guessing until the very end!

Loved it !!!

Great book. It kept me guessing all the way through who the killer was. I definitely will do more in this series. I requested this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

The narrator does an excellent job with the narration.

Good quick mystery

Great mystery for literary lovers :) I started this series with this book which is not the first- and I wish I would have started with book one. I really like the characters but there was a little more backstory than I anticipated. It had likeable characters and an interesting plot- so I’ll definitely be going back for book 1!

Pepper Brooks is at it again

Pepper Brooks is at it again on the trail of a killer and I am loving it. I have listened to book one and jumped at the chance to listen to book two. Glad I did because it was just as fun. I really like the characters especially Pepper and her best friend or as she likes to be called sexy Watson. Although I might not have got all the literally quotes it was fun to listen to as Pepper worked out who the killer was and I enjoyed the mystery because there was plenty of suspects. I hope more of the series is going to be released on audible because I want to see how things change for Pepper and her friends now that the final year of university is over.
When a young woman is found dead in the creek Pepper has no intention of investigating, even if everybody tells her a secret about the dead girl in confidence she points them in the direction of the police. It is only after a second blond girl is found dead in water that Pepper begins to suspect more than just a serial killer is roaming the campus. The deaths are connected but how? Is it like the campus newspaper suggests and someone is showing just how dangerous the water on campus is and is everyone in danger? Or is it just blond girls having affairs that is the trigger? The police start to narrow he suspects down to two possibles but with a third body found Pepper has no choice but to run her own investigation because the police are looking in the wrong direction and aren't listening to her. Pepper thinks she know why the girls are chosen she just needs to work out who the killer is before he targets her very own Sexy Watson aka her blond best friend.
I liked the narrator, she has a really distinct voice that she puts to good use. There was a slight problem with sound, where it would go soft at the start of a few chapters and then return to normal , not enough to stop you listening but I did pick up on it a few times.

Clever

Literary references abound in this murder mystery. It is very cleverly plotted so it's very difficult to guess the killer too early in the book. A few red herrings along the way meant that I was completely taken by surprise when the penny finally dropped at the end.
I loved the little group of university friends and I look forward to reading more about them in the next mystery.
