Publisher's Summary

Zoe Chambers, paramedic and deputy coroner in rural Pennsylvania's tight-knit Vance Township, has been privy to a number of local secrets over the years, some of them her own. But secrets become explosive when a dead body is found in the Township Board president's abandoned car. As a January blizzard rages, Zoe and Police Chief Pete Adams launch a desperate search for the killer, even if it means uncovering secrets that could not only destroy Zoe and Pete but also those closest to them.

Twisted in Ways You Won't See Coming

Circle of Influence is an outstanding murder mystery with twists and turns aplenty. The book is well written with believable characters. There where characters I rooted for and characters I hoped would come to a bad end. The police and detectives where intelligently written as was Zoe the heroine.

I found this book to be very entertaining. I couldn't put it down and listened to it through the night. I liked it the story and the performance.

A GOOD READ

I really enjoyed this little book. It stuck with the mystery without putting in any mushy romance. My favorite characters were the Grandmother and the teen age kids. (Fictional teen agers are easier to deal with than the real thing!) This book has a good ending and I look forward to reading the next book!

Good story worth the listen

Similar in nature to many mystery series out there. The heroic female character who investigates on the side and get herself in trouble. The male police chief comes along there are sparks. Etc. Still with the listen it's entertaining.

Good listen for cozy mystery buffs

Overall, I enjoyed this book. The narrator wasn't one of the best I've ever heard, but she wasn't bad either, and she didn't have any annoying tics or anything that would make you want to stop listening. The story was solid, if somewhat predictable. The major characters are relatable and likeable. I plan to give the series a listen.

Subtlety not her strong suit

This book had villains that made Snidley Whiplash look like a complex & layered man. Still, I'll probably listen to the next one.

Narrator issue

I felt like I was in first grade. No authenticity. Returned immediately. Don't bother.

Good story

I wasn't crazy about the narrator but the story and characters were so interesting, I couldn't put it down. Definitely worth it.
