Publisher's Summary

Amanda Graham inherited a rundown bed and breakfast, a starving cat, and some dead guy who's buried in her garden!

What should've been a simple remodeling project and a new business in a small Oregon beach town winds up with her uncle named as the number-one murder suspect, a slew of odd neighbors and problematic townspeople, and Amanda wanting to just sit down and eat her weight in chocolate pie.

Sure, she could pack her bags and travel back to LA...or should she dig in, heal from her failed romance, and find a whole new set of friends and adventures in Ravenwood Cove?

And how could a quiet little coastal village have so many secrets?

Cute First Mystery But Reader Was Poor

If you could sum up Bed, Breakfast, and Bones in three words, what would they be?

A cute first mystery with lots of potential for the series

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was horrible. It took all I had to hang in with this book. I'm usually not that choosy but this was not at all professional. It was like having a friend read out loud from a book. Please check the sample BEFORE buying. I had bought the book first and just added the audible portion without checking first. If this is the reader for the series, I won't be continuing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If it wasn't for the reader, I could have easily listened all in one sitting.

Made myself finish this

The story wasn't great but the narrator was awful. Her fake laughter in her voice whenever anything remotely2amusing was read was so annoying. Would not recommend.

Good book; Need a professional reader/narrator.

Loved the characters and story.
PLEASE get another reader without the harsh, flat accent and voice. It's not a professional voice for narration.

Loved the story. The Reader was okay.

I enjoyed the story and I'm looking forward to the next book. Just the reader could have been a little better but not the worst I've heard.

Cute story.

Not bad , not earthshattering.
A cute cozy story and i guess the setting in a coastal town makes it better than perhaps the story itself really is.

A Welcome and Delightful Escape!

I have been dealing with some personal and family challenges and this book was the best "take me away" prescription I could have hoped for. The story was immediately engaging, the characters well developed with enough unexpected twists and turns to keep you listening until the end. I liked the town and the people in it and I smiled more times than I can count imagining myself there eavesdropping on public and private conversations. Perfect choice of a narrator/voice talent. Her voice and character interpretation added to my absolute joy that I had chosen this book as my latest cozy mystery. Carolyn Dean PLEASE keep 'em coming! Can't wait for the next in the Ravenwood Cove series. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with grateful readers like me.

A five star story

This is an extremely well written and compelling story with lovable, believable characters. While the narrator has quite a strong American accent, it wasn't unlistenable, in fact I listened to the whole thing in one sitting. The dropped 🌟 on my scoring was for the sound tech, as the voice was very tinny at times. However, don't let this put you off because you'll be missing out on a great tail 😻👍

Loved it!

Mystery enough to keep me intrigued, interesting characters enough to keep me interested and cozy enough to count as truth-in-advertising. I loved this book enough to buy the next two in the series within minutes of finishing this one.

BED BREAKFAST AND BONES

ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T USUALLY GET BOOK'S WITHOUT KNOWING MUCH ABOUT THEM
BUT THIS 1 CAUGHT MY EYE, I DIDN'T GET THE OTHERS TILL I'D LIS6TENED TO THE 1ST ONE OTHER THAN A COUPLE MISTAKES ( like putting on jeans & top on upstairs to getting in the car 5 mins later in the car she's cold cause. she's only got her nighty on!!!)
all in all a great start to the series just about to get the rest of the series

Fantastic read

Great first book of the series, can't wait to read more. Great narration as well. Reminds me of Body Mover's series by Stephanie Bond, High Heels by Gemma Halliday or Mafia Mysteries by Gina LaManna with a cool small beach town vibe. Definitely recommended.
