    "Great Book!"

    This is a great set that is written by Liz Dodwell and Narrated by Jennifer Fournier. This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

    Story
    "Quirky and Fun!"

    These story are cute and funny. The main character, Polly, is quirky and unusual and it was enjoyable to just sit back and listen to her perspective on everything. They are true cozy mysteries, so if you are looking for a serious mystery that keeps you guessing until the end, these aren't the stories for you. A few of them caught me by surprise, but most of them I had figured out before the story wrapped up. Regardless, they were a fun listen.

    The Narrator, Jennifer Fournier, reads the story perfectly. She has a way of expressing Polly's unusual personality and thoughts that comes across just right for the character. I quite enjoyed her and will look for other books by the narrator. She was easy to listen to and the changes in her voice when expressing Polly's joy, sadness or happiness were just perfect and suited Polly's personality just right.

    This is a great series if you are looking for just light, fun mysteries.

    "A fun cozy mystery collection "

    This is a fun collection of the first five stories in the Polly Parrett Pet-Sitter Cozy Mysteries series. Each story is stand alone, but they definitely follow a timeline. I'd recommend listening or reading them in order.

    Liz Dodwell has done a great job of developing Polly into quite the quirky individual. I found myself chuckling out load at some of the situations she got into.

    It was so easy to get drawn into the stories with Jennifer Fournier narrating. She really brought Polly (and all the other characters) to life with just the right level of emotion and expressions.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the narrator, author or publisher.

    "Mystery with pets involved"

    Liked these stories! Plots were good enough to keep me guessing! And I didn't get all of them right! Loved that the animals didn't get hurt too bad..
    the narration could have been better. As far as getting into character with some of it. The bad guy shouldn't sound high pitched and whiny.. the mother should be more stern sounding like they portray her to be.
    I would recommend this book for sure!

    Story
    "Predictable but Charming"

    Summary: A series of short cozy mysteries (yeah, there are bodies but nothing’s described in gruesome detail or anything.)

    Additional Comments:
    - Main character – Polly was basically Stephanie Plum light – a clumsy disaster magnet with gorgeous boyfriend who saves her repeatedly.
    - Side characters – including pets were very well fleshed out and added a nice layer to the story.
    - I heard the audible version, which I definitely recommend over simple reading. Narrator did a decent job with the performance.
    - I enjoyed how the stories built on one another. (Would not recommend reading the series out of order.)
    - One thing that bothered me: the main character/narrator broke the fourth wall (talked to the reader; ala – “now, I know what you’re thinking” style) numerous times. Once, I get (simple mistake/stylistic choice), but any more than that is just annoying.
    - Plots ended up being unique if a little “convenient” from time to time, but that’s sort of the nature of a mystery novella.

    Conclusion: If you’re looking for short, fluff mysteries with minimal curses, this is a good choice.

    *I was given a review copy of the audiobook; I chose to review it.
