Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Denise Swanson’s "slightly zany" new mystery series, Devereaux Sinclair loves running her old-fashioned store in her small Missouri hometown. If only murder didn’t keep landing on her doorstep.…

Dev’s five-and-dime may be doing well, but her love life is in turmoil. She’s torn between Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio, who is on an undercover assignment, and her ex-beau Noah Underwood, the local doctor from a high-society family. So she welcomes the distraction when Elise Whitmore offers her a great deal on antique chocolate molds that would be perfect for her Easter gift baskets. But do the molds actually belong to Elise’s soon-to-be ex-husband? In buying them, has Dev committed a felony?

When Elise is found shot to death, the mystery deepens - and Dev’s good friend Boone, who discovered the body, is taken into custody. With the help of her best buds, Dev must clear Boone’s name and find the real killer. Good thing that when it comes to amateur sleuths, they broke the mold with Dev Sinclair.

Addictive series

Why does every book have to have a love triangle? I really like Dev and Jake and don't want to have doubts about the relationship and like Noah!

This book puts Dev in the middle of another murder mystery, some girls have all the luck! This time she is looking to clear Boone when his client is murdered. So much intrigue!!

This time we get a split narrative between Dev and dishy Doc Noah. Dang it I did not want to like him!! But he is now winning brownie points with me! I still prefer sexy as all get out bad boy Jake!

Once again the steam is relegated to a few hot kisses. We never seem to get past making out. Sigh!

The mystery is once again really intriguing and not an easy solve. I love all the twists and turns! This is easily my new fave mystery series!! Wonderfully paced and not a dull moment to be found!

Once again Maia Guest does a superb job of narrating. I love her characterizations and she really makes the story sing!

an ok book

Would you consider the audio edition of Nickled-and-Dimed to Death to be better than the print version?

The series thus far has been good listening, but the stories just are not as good as the Scumble River series. As I continue with the series I hope it gets better.

It would have been nice to listen all in one sitting, but easy to return as able.
