Hope Fall's greatest detective is stuck in parking enforcement because, at 98 pounds, 5 foot nothing, she will never be able to pass the department's physical exam. But with the aid of her dog, and her writer's group, Chloe may just be able to solve Hope Fall's first homicide and impress the new chief of police.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Would you recommend Moving Violation to your friends? Why or why not?
No, the narration is poor. Between the speed of the talking and lack of tonal change between characters I found it very difficult to follow. Tried to finish this book several times but I just can't get through it.
How could the performance have been better?

A very enjoyable cozy mystery involving a tiny woman who keeps facing disrespect at work. Despite that, she manages to solve the mystery, save the day, and get the guy. My kind of woman! I love the humor as well! A scene involving a loud hand-held alarm had me laughing out loud within minutes of starting!
My only gripe is the poor editing. There were a lot of mispronunciations, and they were jarring to me (mispronunciations are a pet peeve of mine). Some examples: Quarry-quaary, proscribed-prescribed, defecators-defectors, commandeered-commandeered.

Light hearted fun mystery, those are the words I would use to describe this book.
The story was cute, although I was sorry for the dog for being hauled around and tied up a lot.
The narrator, however, needs a course on pronouncing some words...like specious, opulence, and commandeering to name three.
Would you listen to Moving Violation again? Why?
I will listen to it many times. I always hear something that I missed before.
What did you like best about this story?
I love the Chloe Boston Mysteries, and Melissa Strom exhibited the exact same voice and character portrait that I would have expected from Chloe.
What does Melissa Strom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She really brings all of the characters to life in a very realistic and enjoyable manner.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I just really enjoyed the characters and story line. It's very entertaining & easy listening.
Any additional comments?
I can't wait for more Chloe Boston Mysteries to be made available on Audible.
