Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the village of Arroyo Loco, populated with quirky new friends, irrepressible pets, and enough mysteries to keep everyone busy.

An engaging reading of a smart mystery!

I can’t say enough about the quality both of the recording and of Mukavitz’s ability to shift from character to character, giving each a unique and entertaining voice. She even does the male voices credibly, so her range from high to low is tremendous.
There are a lot of characters in this book which can make it a little hard to keep track of them all, despite the accents and voice changes. It might be easier to remember all the residents of Arroyo Loco in the print version, but it didn’t effect my enjoyment of the recording as five or six main characters appeared repeatedly making it easier to recall who they were. The mystery is intelligently written, and Estela’s wry humor comes through nicely in the audio version.
I’ve read most of the series, and continue to believe that these books are among the best light mysteries available. O’Boyle is a talented writer, her plots always puzzle, and her characters are charming. Highly recommended for fans of mysteries that are more on the relaxed side.

A hot time in the old town tonight!

Would you listen to Fire at Will's again? Why?

Fire at Will’s provides a stimulating listening adventure for audio book fans such as myself who enjoy “reading while driving.” I found it a lively and engaging story told from the first person view of Estela, one among a quirky and diverse community of folks who live along a canyon near the coast, midway between San Francisco and San Diego. Estela is a psychologist for a nearby university and as such is equipped to analyze the various idiosyncrasies of her neighbors, each of whom she considers as a possible arsonist of the fire at Will’s house. She offers up intriguing theories of the crime along with artfully dropped clues along the way. The narrator delivers the diverse community voices skillfully, particularly the ones with Spanish accents. A fun “read”!
