Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Between a Book and a Hard Place comes the latest Devereaux's Dime Store Mystery - and it packs a bite.

Opening up a dime store in her hometown of Shadow Bend, Missouri, Devereaux "Dev" Sinclair thought she'd left the wilds of city life behind her. But she's about to discover that even rural life can be beastly....

Handsome private investigator Jake Del Vecchio has rented the office space on the second floor above Devereaux's dime store, and Dev now finds herself embroiled in his first case, which involves Gabriella Winston, the missing wife of wealthy philanthropist Elliot Winston.

Elliot is determined to open a wildlife park on the edge of town but is facing all sorts of angry opposition - including Gabriella. After the Winstons have a bitter fight, Gabriella disappears, and their house is ransacked. The authorities are quick to claim Elliot killed his wife, but Dev's not so sure. One thing is certain: claws are out in Shadow Bend....

Lions are good

For most of this story I was caught up in the plot. The twist at the end was well done. Also, the narrator is great and should always be Dev. Hurry to the new book! Let's have a wedding.

Good book, bad narrator

Plot is good, yet once again I had to struggle through a narrator with a grating voice. I keep reading the series because I love the author, but listening to the narrator is a continuing struggle.

Four and a half stars

This is my first audiobook and I really enjoyed it. The characters are well developed and the mystery is pretty good. The story is somewhat predictable, which is why I only gave the story 4 stars. However, I enjoyed listening to this book and will listen to another book by this author.
