Publisher's Summary

The food truck craze has reached the charming coastal town of South Cove, California, but before Jill Gardner - owner of Coffee, Books, and More - can sample the eats, she has to shift gears and put the brakes on a killer....

Now that Kacey Austin has got her new gluten-free dessert truck up and running, there's no curbing her enthusiasm - not even when someone vandalizes the vehicle and steals her recipes. But when Kacey turns up dead on the beach, and Jill's best friend, Sadie, becomes the prime suspect, Jill needs to step on it to serve the real killer some just desserts.

Pretty Good

This was an entertaining addition to a pretty good series. I think I would like it better if I read the book instead of listened to it. The narrator isn't suited for this story.

This was good but not great

There sure are a lot of annoying people in this town! This one was definitely not her best book because of it. Even her boyfriend is controlling and quick to criticize her. He doesn't even act like he wants to spend time alone with her. Interfering with police investigations also doesn't seem like something a mature attorney would be doing. I hope the next book gets back on track. So far I would still recommend it.

Narrator sounds like she's "reading"

Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on Wheels to be better than the print version?

No. I really like these stories, but the narrator sounds like she's reading the book to us. She's very stiff and formal. I suppose I am spoiled because Xe Sands is one of my most favorite narrators (she would have been PERFECT for this series). Ms. Sands is very casual, relaxed and sounds like she's just talking to us. Ms, Boyce should listen to some of her books and then re-think how she narrates.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think if I were READING this series instead of LISTENING....it would be Aunt Jackie. But in the audio version Aunt Jackie sounds curt and rude, as if everything has to be her way or no way, no middle ground. Even when she's trying to portray "affection" for her niece, she sounds snobby and uppity.

What three words best describe Susan Boyce’s performance?

Pleasant voice?

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Well, made me sad that it could have come off better with a different narrator or just more life into the narration. Ms. Boyce is so stiff, dull and EXACT.

Any additional comments?

This will be the last series I listen to with Ms. Boyce as the narrator. Sorry!

Who knew?

I was pleasantly surprised when geocaching played a role in this Tourist Trap series! As a geocacher myself, it was fun to see this storyline pop up in the plot. As usual, I enjoyed this book by Lyn Cahoon very much. It may not be Hitchcock, but she does a good job balancing the story and the characters. This is a good fun read, and goes at a delightful pace. I just want to know why Jill and Greg aren't engaged yet.

Not the best in this series...

The narrator had nails on chalkboard voice for some of the main characters making this mediocre storyline worse. I was disappointed in this book.

Fun!

Another fun book from Lynn Cahoon! I read her first book but then discovered them on audible. Some books are hard to listen to but not these. The narrator has a wonderful voice and I like the way she does the extra voices of characters. Aunt Jackie is one of my favorite.

Aunt Jackie's Voice

Please reconsider the high pitch and shortness of the Aunt Jackie character. She has not bothered me in other stories. In this book I literally skipped over her parts due to the voice characterization!

murder on wheels

Liking this series. The characters are becoming more realistic. The writing does become a bit slow, and then pulls back to a good pace . I appreciate that the language is clean and there are no steamy romance scenes. The plot has just enough twists. And occasionally I chuckle.
