Publisher's Summary

Was it the environmental activist enamored with spotted owls, someone from the local Native American tribe, Jeff's son, Jeff's wife, or his wife's lover? Join Kelly, the owner of Kelly's Koffee Shop, her boxer dog, Rebel, and her fiancé, Mike, the county sheriff, as they try and catch the person who killed Jeff Black. Well, it's not as if no one wanted Jeff dead. He had a lot of enemies. There were a lot of people who didn't want to see his property turned into a commercial hotel and spa. Finding suspects won't be hard to do, but finding out who killed him will be. No one would ever nominate Jeff for the "Most Popular Citizen Award". This is going to be a nightmare for Mike. I wonder how I can help him, Kelly thought. Murder at Jade Cove is another mouth-watering Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery with recipes included!

A Killer Strikes

Cedar Bay Cove is beautiful and draws people to its shores. Unfortunately it's the scene of another murder. Jeff Black is the victim. His plans to build a resort at the cove caused violent opposition. With so many suspects can they find out who killed Jeff? Mike, the county sheriff, is working on it. It's slow going but he's determined not to let Kelly, his fiancée, get involved. She is not easily deterred. She's a warm, open woman who has a talent to get people to open up to her. This small town is filled with interesting and diverse characters. There is no such thing as secrets. Erin deWard captures every nuance of these people. The narration builds the suspense and I was pulled into this cozy mystery. Dianne Harman's style captures all that I love about cozies. I enjoy audiobooks because they make me feel as if I were right there in the middle of the action.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

So much fun and, oh, so addicting!!

The Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series by Dianne Harman is so addicting! I love everything about it, as you can tell from my reviews of each book on Audible and Amazon. From the loveable characters (yes, that includes the dogs) to the storyline of each book, this series will not disappoint. Each can be listened to as a stand-alone, but I recommend starting with book 1 because I think you will love them as much as I do!

Also, the narrator Erin deWard does a fantastic job! I love her as the narrator of these books. I couldnt imagine anyone else playing the role of Kelly and the others. I hope she continues to narrate the entire series, as more books are added (yes, please keep adding them!). :-)

I rate this 5 stars all around. In my opinion it is the perfect listen for a drive up north or a Saturday afternoon cleaning the house. All the books of Dianne's are anywhere from 4-5 hours. They are easy to listen to and will keep you feeling stress-free. Give it a try...these characters will wiggle their way into your heart in no time at all! :-)

Thank you for reading my review.

The next in a great series

Once again Dianne Harman has done a lovely job of taking us on a murder. Erin deWard is wonderful with her narrative too. I truly enjoy this series. I have listened and read the books in this series and both are well done and very entertaining. I was gifted this audiobook with the understanding I would leave an honest review and so I have.

Light-hearted Mystery

Any additional comments?

Fun short murder mystery.

Light, fun, enjoyable quick read.

Even though this is a murder mystery, there isn't really a lot of mystery going on. It's pretty easy to figure out. It's just a fun quick afternoon read.

Kelly just can't stop herself from prying into police business. Mike the town sheriff and her fiancé can't keep Kelly out of police business.

People in small towns do gossip like this.

Erin deWard did a good job with the narration. She has a pleasant voice and is easy on the ears. Really good different character voices.

Thank goodness for the dogs

This was right on the brink of eye-rollingly stupid. Just when I would say "oh, come on! No one is that......stupid, gossipy, forthcoming, stupid" the book would get a little better. The characters were pretty shallow for the most part - the good are all good and the bad are well, bad. No surprise ending. I did like the setting and wonder if the jade in the cliffs are for real. The dogs saved it. But I am a huge dog lover. And not a fan of buying a purebred when there are so many in need at shelters. however, I love them all and that kept me listening. Go, Rebel!

Not my cup of tea.

Would you try another book from Dianne Harman and/or Erin deWard?

No. This book was not a murder-mystery with depth or intrigue more of a fluffy type.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Dee Henderson or Lynette Eason

What didn’t you like about Erin deWard’s performance?

I am not sure if it was Erin deWard's reading or the writing but it was choppy. Her voices were forced not very distinctive. I didn't find her easy to listen to.

Did Murder at Jade Cove inspire you to do anything?

No.
