Publisher's Summary

When a popular soap maker dies in the middle of her own launch party, the girls must find out who did it. The answer seems simple. In the victim's hand was a napkin with a handwritten note: The Butler did it. They have their killer. There's just one problem; there are four butlers, each one claiming that he's innocent. Did one of them do it? Or, is there more to this case?

    "QUICK READ"

    I received this audio book free from the author/narrator/publisher and am freely offering my unbiased review. Certainly not the best mystery I have listened to as it seems to lack depth and some aspects of the use of this crime team seem a little far fetched.

    "Mystery Soap.."
    Any additional comments?


    Alicia the female lead, has turned her love for soap into of a business and decides to throw

    a party for her new line.

    During the party, a murder is committed and so the Mystery begins.

    The story line was engaging and kept we entertained until the end.


    Olivia Searfoss did well with the narration.

    "I wanted so badly to like this!"

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review. I am a soap maker, so I really, really wanted to like this little book. I didn't. It's going to be hard to write this review without ****spoilers, so stop reading here if you want to avoid them*****
    The soap maker in this book has made enough money to hire 4 butlers. Really? They help her make soap. Why didn't she hire assistants instead of 4 butlers and have them make soap. They talk about making soap as if they are handling radioactive waste, gives us a bad name........lol. Then, if you were in a wreck where someone died, you would know of the victim's family and I don't think you would be unaware if their mother wanted to become your best friend and biggest customer. Then, a bunch of girls wouldn't be better detectives than the detective, who was gathering all of the information and giving it to them to solve the crime, why didn't he just solve the crime? They were pointless and unexplained. The actual writing was not bad, and the narrator did just fine, but the story was kind of lame.

    "Short listen but not a real mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this while I was preparing my house for holiday visitors. I wanted a quick read and this fit the bill.

    I liked the narration and the mystery was okay. I just think I listen to way too many mysteries so I had the culprit for this one picked out quite early on. It made for a hard listen then when it took so long for the actual detectives to figure things out.

    This mystery was just okay.

    Story
    "A group solved mystery"

    The set up for this series is that there's a group of amateur detectives who solve crimes together. The local police hire a private detective for help, and this PI calls on Pippa & friends for assistance. This premise is frustrating because which police detective or PI would be so clueless that they desperately need a rag tag group of amateur sleuths? It didn't make sense. Usually in cozy mysteries the amateur sleuth sort of wiggles their way into the crime uninvited & they aren't typically regarded as the chief crime solvers.

    The group itself was kind of eh.. None of them had stand out personalities or qualities which made them memorable. The crime itself had an interesting plot, a whodunit with the victim blaming the butler, but we don't know which one of the 4 did it. The narration was okay, it likely redeemed the story a bit. I was provided this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

    "I have mixed feelings on this one"
    Would you recommend Four of the Usual Suspects: A Pippa Langham Mystery to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, unfortunately with this book I couldn't.

    It wasn't a bad book, but it kept referring to the victim of an accident as the perpetrator and is so wrong! Without this the story would have been interesting but with this concept repeated several times it was uncomfortable to listen to.

    I also figured out who did it in the first half of the book and couldn't figure out what was taking the characters so long.


    Was Four of the Usual Suspects: A Pippa Langham Mystery worth the listening time?

    No not really. Maybe listening to the first book in the series first would have helped fill in background so that this made more sense, but I couldn't figure out why the police would call in these ladies for help, it makes no sense.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was a bright spot in this book, Olivia did a great job with the characters voices and the overall narration.

    I'm pretty disappointed, I loved the last CS Patra book I listened to, but this one is a miss for me.

    Note: This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "A well written mystery!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story was well developed and held your attention throughout.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chase kept the girls well informed and respected their opinions & efforts.


    Have you listened to any of Olivia Searfoss’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, first one. Hope to listen to others.


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

    The angst of Thea for her daughter was tragic.

    "Good story but needed a little more"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this book, however, if felt like it was missing something. It felt like in places it just kept repeating itself. I like how she fingered the butler since there were 4 butlers and it took time to sort it all out. I think there could've been a little more story in the research the lady PI's were doing. I would love to listen to another book from this author and narrator and see how it compares to this book.

    Story
    "Mystery and Investigations"

    This book was a pleasure to listen to, the characters were human and their emotions shone through. A successful business woman dies at her own dinner party and Pippa Langham sets out to find the killer. Even the police are having trouble finding the guilty person.
    I love a good mystery and this one was interesting and enjoyable to sleuth along with Pippa.
