Publisher's Summary

Was it the environmental activist enamored with spotted owls, someone from the local Native American tribe, Jeff's son, Jeff's wife, or his wife's lover? Join Kelly, the owner of Kelly's Koffee Shop, her boxer dog, Rebel, and her fiancé, Mike, the county sheriff, as they try and catch the person who killed Jeff Black. Well, it's not as if no one wanted Jeff dead. He had a lot of enemies. There were a lot of people who didn't want to see his property turned into a commercial hotel and spa. Finding suspects won't be hard to do, but finding out who killed him will be. No one would ever nominate Jeff for the "Most Popular Citizen Award". This is going to be a nightmare for Mike. I wonder how I can help him, Kelly thought. Murder at Jade Cove is another mouth-watering Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery with recipes included!

A Killer Strikes

Cedar Bay Cove is beautiful and draws people to its shores. Unfortunately it's the scene of another murder. Jeff Black is the victim. His plans to build a resort at the cove caused violent opposition. With so many suspects can they find out who killed Jeff? Mike, the county sheriff, is working on it. It's slow going but he's determined not to let Kelly, his fiancée, get involved. She is not easily deterred. She's a warm, open woman who has a talent to get people to open up to her. This small town is filled with interesting and diverse characters. There is no such thing as secrets. Erin deWard captures every nuance of these people. The narration builds the suspense and I was pulled into this cozy mystery. Dianne Harman's style captures all that I love about cozies. I enjoy audiobooks because they make me feel as if I were right there in the middle of the action.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

I enjoyed this book and learning more about Kelly. The story was engaging and included murder, romance and other characters added on there mix. I recommend this book. I did receive a complimentary copy but the review is my own opinion.

Not the best DH book

This book kind of pained me. The narrator was screechy and didn't do well with character voices. The story was slow and phrases were repetitive , crossing fingers and promising. There was a lot of back story told that I don't think needed to be told. I'm chalking this up to it being the authors earlier books. I really enjoyed all of the Cottonwood Springs series and was looking forward to starting this series. I was not a fan of this narration at all.

A Vacation in My Mind

I really like this author's books because it is like going on a vacation while I listen an audiobook or read an ebook all over the United States. This had a lot of the ingredients in a story I enjoy; love, mystery, dogs, a murder to solve and good characters.

An average cozy

This one was a little more like a classic cozy. Still decent but didn't enjoy it as much as the first one in this series.

I found Mike to be annoying in this one too, very controlling.

Fun Cozy Mystery

I enjoyed reading this story. Even though it's the second in a series, I had no problem following the story and characters. Just as a major project is about to start on a gorgeous piece of property, the owner is found, murdered. There are a number of suspects. Kelly owns a coffee shop and her boyfriend Mike is the sheriff. Kelly can't help herself - she continues to investigate the murder, even though she promises not too.

I enjoyed the story and the characters. I'm in the middle of a Dianne Harman pile of books right now and I've become a fan. This book is good for young adult to adult readers.

I listened to the audio version of the book and I enjoyed listening to the narrator. She does a great job with the story and she even does character voices.

Fun book

Murder at Jade Cove is a wonderful cozy mystery. I’m really enjoying this series (can be read as a stand alone) and love the main characters fun personalities. The narrator gives a nice performance of the characters.

Oh so good!

Murder at Jade Cove (Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery #2), my fifth read/listen from author Dianne Harman and the second book in the highly enjoyable Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery series, and perhaps the best of her books I've read to date. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. Erin deWard's excellent narration adds to an excellent book's enjoyment. I look forward to reading more in this series & from this author. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

A great cozy mystery

A good cozy murder mystery, typical of this author you get a number of good suspects and they are all whittled down until the murder is obvious. Excellent story with some likable characters and some nice touches. The audiobook is well narrated with a nice light touch and a very listenable voice.
