Good story horrible narration

The narrator spoiled this book for me. The story line is passable. It was just enough to keep my attention. Unfortunately I knew the ending before it was revealed so that was disappointing.

The Best Yet

This was a well plotted and suspenseful mystery. There are several twists and turns to keep the story going. There is also lots of character development among the central characters. I enjoyed this book very much.

the newest after-school activity

The overlapping threads of two murders lead Kate from cybersex to love sonnets, from a clandestine research project to the deepest of family secrets, and ultimately threaten Kate and those she loves.

This is a nice, if leisurely paced, cozy mystery. It reveals family life in a small town, through the eyes of teachers and students of a local high school, and the author has a fine touch with presenting lifelike and believable teens. The mysteries unravel together, and their potential connectedness is at the heart of the story. The writing is very evocative, and the characters are excellently drawn, especially the young people, who are neither presented as children nor as teen age adults, but as what most teens really are; a bit of both. While I did figure out who the villain in one of the mysteries was before the end, the mystery was nicely constructed, and I enjoyed the wealth of incident involving peripheral characters, which provided much of the humor.

The narration was professional and competent. I received a copy of this book in exchange for this unbiased review via the courtesy of AudioBookBlast dot com. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Cool Characters!

Any additional comments?

I liked the characters in this book! So many characters to suspect! I truly liked the main character's compassion and her dedication to doing the right thing, even with a horrific ex mother-in-law. I have one of those! The mystery was a little mind-blowing. I'd be very interested to read more about Kate and her adventures, but the narration was not my cup of tea. It's the only time I've put one on faster play speed. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Didn't see that coming!

What made the experience of listening to Murder Among Us the most enjoyable?

The gentle cadence of the reader's voice lulled me through all the twists and turns of this story.

What did you like best about this story?

You kept wondering who was the killer. You had so many choices.

Which scene was your favorite?

Where they find out who the real killer is. I didn't see that coming.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Jonnie Jacobs does it again!

Cozy and Enjoyable Mystery

Though the 3rd in the series, this works well as a standalone (I do intend to read/listen to the first two). Likable and well developed characters~especially Kate and Michael. Though a serious story of the murders of two young girls, Fay and Max provided several light moments. An enjoyable listen, good narration, some unexpected twists, and a satisfying ending.
