Plot twists in this Hope Hadley mystery

This is the first Hope Hadley audiobook I have listened to. Stephanie Quinn does a wonderful job with the narration. I like Hope's intelligence and savvy, and her character is well developed. Hope travels across the country to help out her childhood friend - what an amazing thing to do! The storyline is great, and has plot twists that leave the listener guessing to the very end. Looking forward to more Hope Hadley.

I receive a promotional copy of this audiobook, and this is my honest review.

A well done short

cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, Hollywood, short *****

Hope goes back to Hollywood, CA to visit her very good friend only to find that the woman has really changed. The next bad surprise is that this friend has been arrested for murder! So Hope goes on the sleuth but is blocked at every turn. After a phone call to her detective brother in Hollywood, FL she has new insight and solves the case. A comfortable short read!
Stephanie Quinn does a great narration of the interesting characters.

My new favourite story in this series

This is such a different story from the previous ones, and we'll get to see Hope under a new light, under circumstances that are really hard for her.

I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll just say this is a great story, with an unexpected twist at the end.

I liked Stephanie Quinn here, particularly when voicing Hope, although some of the other voices sounded a bit rough.

But this is a great story, and you won't regret giving it a go :D

New favorite in the Hope Hadley series!

Murder of a Movie Producer: Hope Hadley Cozy Mystery Series, Book 8 by Meredith Potts, narrated by Stephanie Quinn is my new favorite in series. I'm not going to say anything to give away the ending, but I will say I was surprised! This one will keep you guessing! I love that this audiobook is just under 2 hours because 1. I don't like to be kept waiting for the big reveal and 2. I'm able to squeeze in some well-deserved "me time" more easily...we all deserve time to relax and unwind. :-)

I'm not usually into narrator changes in the middle of a series, but I was pleasantly surprised when I heard the softer, more feminine voice of Stephanie Quinn in this episode. More personal preference than anything else, I like that Book 8 portrays Hope in a different light. She doesn't sound so "rough around the edges" anymore. Quinn does an excellent job, and I hope she sticks around!

As my new favorite in the Hope Hadley Cozy Mystery Series, I rate Book 8, Murder of a Movie Producer by Meredith Potts, narrated by Stephanie Quinn 5/5 stars! Hope ran this case pretty much on her own, and I like how it not only kept me guessing through to the end, but also surprised me (I really didn't expect it to end that way - loved it!). I recommend this audiobook to cozy mystery fans and/or those looking for a short, complete mystery to enjoy as relief from your busy schedule! Happy listening!

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful.
