Publisher's Summary

A murder. A wedding reception. Not a good start to wedded bliss.

Plenty of quirky suspects including the wealthy rancher who's still in love with the best man's wife, the smarmy minister who ran against him for county supervisor in the recent election, the estranged stepmother of his wife, his sister-in-law's drug-addicted ex-husband, and his ex-girlfriend whose family has strong Mafia ties.

As always, plenty of recipes, dogs, and good food in this popular cozy mystery series by a two-time USA Today best-selling author.

It's good

Even though the mystery is good and the narrator did a good job but I still struggled little to finish

Not my favorite cozy mystery but it was okay,

The story line is a little corny, It is not a story I would listen to over again. The story does stand alone.

The narration left a lot to be desired. I did listen to a sample but when you are listening to the entire story you pick up issues. Some areas in the narration felt like it was being read by someone who had not read the story before, IT did not flow well.

I recieved this book at my request and am voluntarily leaving this review.

Like someone yelling on your ear for 4 hours

I really didn't care for the book, but have to think a different narrator might have made it more enjoyable. When speaking in a character voice it flowed OK and while not really smooth, at least sounded human and was understandable. When speaking the part of the narrator I felt like someone was yelling in my ear in an extremely choppy staccato style. There were pauses between words that simply didn't need to be there. I gave up completely after about 2 hours.

Entertaining

Murder at the Bed and Breakfast is an entertaining cozy mystery. While it is a part of a series, it can easily be enjoyed as a standalone without feeling lost. I appreciate that the main characters are middle aged with grown children and still having adventures. The narrator gave a nice performance.

Not so Cozy Mystery

The storyline was a little to cheesy and the characters were just a bunch of pathetic wimps. I usually love cozy mysteries but not this one. I did not like the racial slur that was thrown around and it really soured me on the whole book making it hard for me to get through. This is my honest unbiased review. I will never get back the time it took me to listen to this book. I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

unlikable characters and cheesy

What a pathetic group of characters! Ugh! Broken engagements, spurned lovers, and many possible villains. There were several less than scrupulous characters and some even shady actions to consider as possible villains. I was a bit put off with the lack of integrity of some of the men and women!!! All the characters seem like small town gossips and weren't likable. Liz was tolerable. I was SICK TO DEATH of hearing about the postponed honeymoon. I'm sure the marriage was consummated without it, so what's the big deal???? When this wasn't cheesy it was syrupy sickening sweet. Overkill. Less is more, please!!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Cozy mystery at its best

I enjoyed this book. This is another cozy mystery that keeps you guessing over the motive, as well as the killer. The author gives you a number of suspects perspectives over the reason why the victim needed to die, surprisingly not over something she herself did, before Liz solves the case. This although a bit jumpy, does work well for the story as the suspects slowly get eliminated from the list as you follow Liz after a few red herrings.. The story is full of interesting and often quirky characters which certainly keep it entertaining. This is just a nice easy cozy mystery that you can pick up a book anywhere in the series and know you will lose yourself for a couple of hours in a good mystery.
Liz and Roger's big day has finally arrived and with no guests staying at the B&B, they can sit back and enjoy the perfect wedding. Unfortunately before they can start there honeymoon Roger gets a phone call, his ex work colleague bob and one of the guest at the wedding needs his help. His sister in law was shot and killed in her hotel room while babysitting his young daughter. With Seth still some how sheriff, Liz knows she can't go on her honeymoon and leave the investigation up to him. Especially when Laura's death seems like it only happened so someone could get back at Bob or wife. Were they the real targets? Liz will have to look into a wide range of suspects to find the killer, from a mafia boss's daughter who was dumped to a minister that isn't so squeaky clean, her own ex husband who went into rehab to get her back to even her strange step mum who is still grieving for her husband. Can Liz find the killer? Or will her big day be remembered for all the wrong reasons.
I liked the narrator. She has a pleasant voice that brings character to each of the characters as the mystery is revealed.
