Inner peace becomes difficult for Hope Hadley to find when she shows up for her yoga class one morning and discovers the dead body of her handsome male instructor on the ground in the studio. When Hope discovers that her instructor's good looks had caught the attention of a number of his married female students, the pool of suspects becomes surprisingly large. It's going to take more than some deep meditation for Hope to crack this case.
When Hope is looking to get away and relax a little, she heads to yoga. With her typical luck, she walks into the classroom and finds the instructor dead! With a little help from her brother, a plethora of suspects and her intuition, Hope sets out to find the culprit that committed the crime. We get to know Hope a little more with each book and I especially love her relationship with her brother, Joe. These two always have entertaining banter and work so well together in solving the murders. Meredith Potts has an incredible way of packing a short novella with details and well developed characters, leaving the reader unknowing til the end and completely satisfied.
The continuing narration by Rachel Carr is wondeful. She is Hooe and gives the story spunkiness and a cozy feel.
This one started out a bit different than the others in this series, I felt like I was missing something. Of course each book in the series has been quite different form the last due to Hope's relocation. Hope sets out to relax and instead finds her new Yoga instructor dead. And now she off into another case. Great job on the narration.
So, in this third book, we find Hope in a really bad situation: kidnapped, and about to be killed. Of course, being Hope, she manages to get herself free just to welcome her brother coming to the rescue. But even as she is physically unharmed, that doesn't mean she is not emotionally unscarred. So, even as her romance with Daniel is blooming, and her relationship with her brother is better than ever she can't get rid of that lingering anxiety left by her close call. She decides that yoga classes would be the perfect way to feel better, and there she goes.
Except... she's Hope, so when she arrives early for her class, there is a dead body waiting for her. She investigates the case alongside with her brother (and what joy that is!), and the story goes smoothly and entertaining until the shocking conclusion.
A lovely short story that you'll be able to listen in just an hour and a half, and will keep you smiling all the time.
Again Rachel Carr does an astounding job reading this story. When I see her name in an audiobook, I know I'm for a treat.
