A different kind of story

Loved the book. It was a different type of mystery in my opinion. It as still good. But a more softer tone in my opinion. Loved it to death!

Marty does it again!

Murder in Palm Springs finds Marty doing an appraisal and investigating a murder! I love this series and the characters. Its funny how some people act around celebrities and even Marty wanted to be in the movies. Kasey Logan’s narration is wonderful! She truly brings the story to life!

Better than expected

So many potential suspects, so little time. What happens when a person is found dead and there are several people they know who are suspects and had their own reasons to kill the person? That is the basis for this story. The "killer" was a bit of a surprise at the end. Enjoyable story, characters and plot. Certainly one of the better ones in this series.

Murder

There’s been another murder at one of Marty’s appraisals. And some people are getting tired of her involvement with murders. It was a local music star who was killed. The combination of characters in this book are so much fun! And the humor throughout is an added bonus. I enjoyed the narration of the audiobook.

Excellent

Once again Marty and Carl are called in to do an appraisal of celebrity items, that Jimmy had collected. Carl was hesitant because when they have done appraisal before it turned out murder was involved. In this it’s a case of celebrities, wanting to be a star, the money that goes with it. Along the way we have conversations about the case shared at the compound.
Was enjoyable and good narration. Given audio for my voluntary review

Another good cosy mystery by this author

I enjoyed this book. This is book eight in the series and when you discover a winning style, why change it? You are treated to many different perspectives at the start of the book, as each of the suspects explain why they had a motive for murder. Then the story focusses in on the main character, Marty as she eliminates them one by one. With the psychic telling dog you sort of know who the killer is (if you are listening) but the motive isn't revealed until the end. Another fun mystery to keep you guessing and cooking (or in my case just hungry).
When an aging American idol suffers a heart attack and is no longer able to perform in Vegas, he rarely leaves his house. The only two exceptions is to sing once a week in a night club and everyday to collect his mail. Making the mail drop the perfect time to commit murder. With Jeff busy investigating the shooting of the mayor's son and his friends, Marty steps in to do the leg work by asking questions. Her appraisal work might be put on hold because of the murder but with Patron by her side she isn't going to stop looking for a killer.
I liked the narrator. She does a great job of portraying each of the different characters.
