Publisher's Summary

Jill Gardner - owner of Coffee, Books, and More - has somehow been talked into sponsoring a 5k race along the beautiful California coast. The race is a fundraiser for the local preservation society - but not everyone is feeling so charitable.

The day of the race, everyone hits the ground running...until a local business owner stumbles over a very stationary body. The deceased is the vicious wife of the husband-and-wife team hired to promote the event - and the husband turns to Jill for help in clearing his name. But did he do it?

Worth the listen

Any additional comments?

I enjoy all the books in this series. This one started out a little slower but it was still worth listening to it.

Love this series!

Not the best of the bunch, but still an enjoyable read. Wow... for such a small town, South Cove sure has a lot of murders. Wink.

Another good one.

I liked this book mainly because of the house. The narrator is wonderful. I like most of the characters but can't stand Lily!

Not my favorite, but a good story

I have to say, I'm getting irritated with Jill never telling Greg what she's doing. At first, I kind of felt like it was a Nancy Drew vibe, but the more she goes on and lies to him, the more that bothers me - Nancy always dragged Ned into her shenanigans. And her aunt was very crotchety in this one. I've already bought the rest of the series, so I'll probably go ahead and listen to them, but I hope I see some growth in her character.

Boring

I have read the previous books in this series and have enjoyed them. However, I found this one boring. The mystery plot was weak at best. The book itself was filled with complaints by Jill and her aunt. There was also a lot of information about everything Jill ate. Susan Boyce didn't help. I haven't been a big fan of her narration, however, in this book it really grates on my nerves.
