Publisher's Summary

When minor league baseball comes to White Sands Beach, not everyone welcomes the club. Birders are upset by the location of Sand Skeeter Ballpark, but will they resort to murder to protect the birds nesting areas?

When a woman dies at the ballpark, during the final game of the season, tabloid reporter and amateur sleuth Cassie O'Malley finds herself on the case. Tag along as Cassie and her unusual band of cohorts attempt to untangle the clues in A Minor Case of Murder.

It was ok

This book seemed like a good idea. The plot was good and the characters likeable. But, listening to it was like going on a nature hike on a nice day and getting lost. You don't mind the longer walk because it's nice outside but deep down you're ready for it to be over. I enjoyed the book but it took the long way to get to the end. All in all it was ok.

I didn't regret it.

Where does A Minor Case of Murder: A Cassie O' Malley Mystery (Five Star Mystery Series) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is my first on this site, but my husband buys a couple a month. The story was a little confusing for me until the middle, then it picked up. Overall, I liked it. My husband and I usually speed up the narrations from this site because they are too slow. This one was just a little too fast. Please slow it down just a tad next time!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Maybe had the murder a little earlier. My husband thought the story was written more for women, and I thought it was written more for men. He also thought that the ugly review for the narrator was because these stories get narrated by men a lot. My daughter and I loved her voice. We think she should narrate books for teens and young adults!

Which character – as performed by Amber Connor – was your favorite?

I liked Cassie best. I have a friend that reminds me of Chayanne too so that was endearing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Her husband Rob. When she talked about being 20 I almost cried.

Any additional comments?

Overall, we liked it and gave it 3.5 (but there wasn't a way to give half stars, I don't think)

No sparks.

I would hate to be married to that voice worse than nails across a chalk board.
