Publisher's Summary

Who in Calmhaven does not know Molly Gertrude Grey, the gentle aging owner of the Cozy Bridal Agency? But Molly and her enthusiastic assistant Dora Brightside have more talents than just matchmaking. They are amateur sleuths with a nose for a great mystery. 

If you like light, clean cozy mysteries with a cat-loving sleuth, quirky characters, and unexpected surprises you will love this bumper bargain collection of Christian cozy mysteries. No cliffhangers, swearing, gore or graphic scenes. Just good, clean cozy fun that will keep you guessing until the end. 

This audiobook features all six books:

Wedding Cake Wipe Out

When poor Abe Mortimer, the town mayor, keels over during the wedding reception of his dear daughter, Miss Molly is certain it’s no accident.

Seedy characters on the scene, old ghosts from a shady past, and a grasping son-in-law with ulterior motives lead Molly into the crosshairs of Calmhaven’s most frightening conspiracy.

The clues pile up, but the culprit remains at large! Will Molly and her assistant Dora be able to solve the case before Abe Mortimer ends up in the mortuary?

The Bridal Dress Disaster

Michelle and Brian seem to be the perfect match, until an unexpected break-in leaves them reeling and thrown headlong into a mystery.

Who would target a couple’s happiness only days before they tie the knot?

Obstructive friends, competitive dressmakers, broken windows and broken promises. Can Molly and her assistant, Dora, uncover the culprit and save the big day?

A Fishy Murder Most Foul

When wealthy tycoon, Albert Gravel, lifeless and blue-faced on the floor after eating The Crystal Grill Restaurant’s fish special, Molly sniffs something fishy at play.

Followed by an eager reporter looking for a scoop, the Gravel case quickly uncovers Calmhaven’s dark underbelly! Sheriff JJ Barnes sees it as a cut-and-dried case - the owner of the Grill had plenty reason to want Gravel out of his way.

Molly thinks otherwise, and together with her enthusiastic assistant Dora, is determined to get to the bottom of this decidedly smelly case. Can she do so before an innocent man goes to jail?

The Mystery of the Missing Bride

Bernard Bloomsteyn, the wealthy owner of Greenacre Manor, the most prestigious mansion of Calmhaven, is about to say his vows to Deborah Smythe, a lonely widow of means.

But not all that glitters is gold, and not all who decide to tie the knot are as sincere as they claim to be. Several days before the wedding, Deborah Smythe, the lovely bride, goes missing, and nobody knows what happened to her.

Did Deborah get a dose cold feet or run because of some unknown fear? Is there a more sinister reason for her disappearance?

Missing Cash and the Corpse in a Cabin

Molly has earned a reputation for her work as an amateur sleuth, but are you familiar how Miss Molly Gertrude's adventures began?

On the fateful day that Molly Gertrude arrived in Calmhaven, it appeared that the benevolent philanthropist Samuel Given slipped and hit his head.

Sheriff JJ Barnes is convinced it is merely an accident and wants to close the case, but Molly Gertrude isn’t so sure and begins her own investigation. Molly Gertrude herself tells how she solved the mystery and became one of Calmhaven's most celebrated figures.

The Dead Man’s Stolen Book

Pastor Julian, the faithful shepherd of the flock, fears that a terrible storm is brewing, as traveling evangelist Sharlan Tan makes Calmhaven his next target for his message of peace and prosperity.

What happened to that valuable, antique, first edition of John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress handed to Julian by his dying friend? The book is gone, just as Sharlan Tan arrives in town.

Will Molly be able expose Sharlan Tan before all of Calmhaven comes under his spell?

Exceptional Narrator

These stories are very good. They all follow a formula but that's not a problem and helps you play along once you've heard a couple of the books in the series. There's always a red herring or two thrown in also. My favorite was book #6 The Dead Man's Stolen Book. The mystery involved a missing book not a murder. The amateur sleuths are a 70ish (maybe 80ish) woman (Molly Gertrude Grey) who runs a wedding planning business and her sidekick Dora. What makes this audio version especially great is the narrator who adapts different voices for each character and the voice of Molly is especially fitting as it sounds exactly like you would imagine a calm senior woman to sound like as she goes around casually asking questions and obtaining answers that lead to the resolution of the mysteries. Another charming thing about the book is the names that the author uses for the characters and places in the book - Calmhaven for instance and a name very close to Charlatan for one of the bad guys who is well a Charlatan. All in all a fun series.

Stilted and long

I just could not get into these books. The narrator was very precise and stilted. This made the book seem too long. I’d return it if I could.

Stilted Dialog

I chose this boxed set because the main character is older. It's difficult to find cozy mysteries with older main characters. However, I only made it through the first book, and I fell asleep in the middle of that. I would have gone back to see what I missed, but I found I didn't care. The main problem was that' the dialog in book 1 was not good. None of the characters used contractions. It lead to very stilted dialog. It was at the point of being distracting. The narrator could only work with what she had, but still, even the narration was very flat. She changed her voice for the main character, but many times she read with a flat voice. It reminded me of how a child might read when called on by the teacher. I think the mystery portion of the book was laid out well. On the other hand, I did missed some things when I fell asleep.

Pretty awful

I enjoy a cosy mystery. It can be a refreshing change from the gore, sex and bad language of many in the murder/thriller genre. This, however, was just too ... Too sweet, too unbelievable, too poorly read. For me it just didn’t work at all. I bought it as a boxed set of 6 stories thinking it would be a bit of light relief. I gritted my teeth and listened to the end of the first story but I won’t bother to listen to the other 5 and I think I will return it. I really have to dislike a book to return it. It had a lot of good reviews but I can’t think why.
