Better than expected

Although this was a fairly short story, it was complete. I liked this story and the characters in it. It was a little predictable, but still enjoyable. Cute ending.

Good

Good plot, wonder what he will think of the next season. Going to do research in a small town he got a lot of crimes past and present to write about. Good plot with twists to enjoy and good narration by Emily added to the story. Given audio for my voluntary review

She's seeking peace, but a killer is on her heels.

OK, I'll admit it. I really liked this simple little Christian cozy-style mystery set in smalltown Pennsylvania. I opted for the audiobook version of Ruth Buchanan's holiday mystery, and, at just under three hours it was a fun and easy listen.

I listened to Murder On Burchardville Hill while working on my computer and it made the time spent on the sometimes tedious work pass more pleasantly. I enjoyed trying to solve the mystery in all of its complexities, and I did guess some of it correctly, but I was also in for a surprise or two. I liked the cast of quirky, sometimes very quirky, smalltown characters, one teenage boy in particular, and the promise of romance to come was nice as well.

The audio part of the production wasn't bad, though I did notice that the chapter numbers could be a bit abrupt, and I generally liked the choice of narrator.

If you like Christian mysteries but don't want to commit eight or more hours of listening Murder On Birchardville Hill from Ruth Buchanan might just be a good option for you.

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)
