Publisher's Summary

If Deena Sharpe had known she would soon be investigating another death, she might have skipped Christmas altogether. Buoyed by a new job and a spirit for the holidays, she carries on, blind to what the next few weeks will hold.

A Christmas party for the upper crust of the small Texas town of Maycroft turns tragic when the hostess ends up dead. Everyone assumes her death is an accident - everyone except her daughter, Estelle. She turns to Deena to help solve the mystery. A jealous friend and a mysterious heir are just two of the likely suspects.

As a school teacher turned newspaper reporter, Deena must get crafty to dig out the truth before anyone else gets hurt, including her own brother.

A little romance, some snarky suburban competition, and a lot of mystery will keep listeners guessing in this cozy whodunit.

    "another great mystery"

    this is a cute and well written cozy mystery. the main character finds herself again involved with solving what was ruled as an accidental death but turns out to be a murder. I do look forward to more in this series. I received this book as a free gift through audioboom in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Good, Clean Mystery."
    Where does Sharpe Edge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a good story. The author makes the characters come alive without resorting to stereo-types. The mystery is well-done. The clues are there all along and the suspenseful ending does not rely on last minute information. The suspects are all plausible. I appreciate that the story is clean. No swearing or sex scenes. Safe for pre-teens.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Deanne, the main character, is a lot of fun. She is nosy, witty, sarcastic and smart, yet kind. I really like the main character, but the other characters are interesting too. I think my favorite has to be the redneck long-lost uncle who answers the door with a shotgun and a pack of dogs. He's a colorful guy.


    What about Kelley Hazen’s performance did you like?

    She performs the different characters beautifully. She maintains their unique voices effortlessly throughout the book. She does very believable male voices which is often difficult for female narrators. She brings out the personality of the main character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This is an entertaining mystery story. It does not lend itself to touching emotional scenes. There are however, some very tense scenes throughout the book and particularly at the end. The mystery is well-written and well paced. It is suspenseful, but not overly or artificially so. This is a good, solid story.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this book for free from the author, narrator, or publisher on Audio Book Boom forum in exchange for a honest review.

    "A step above the average murder mystery"

    Sure it is a murder mystery but this one had interesting characters that held my interest right to the end where it is all revealed and at least some of the characters live happily onwards.
    The narration was good with varied voices so that you could tell immediately who was talking but without making any of the voices irritating enough to detract from the story.
    Overall an enjoyable bit of escapism with a female sleuth who is easy to like.
    I was given this audiobook as a review copy in return for an unbiased review but it was a book that I would have been pleased to buy if I had found it by myself.

    "Enjoying this new series!"

    So far, I'm impressed. Ms. Thomas writes a good mystery, interesting characters, clean (no swearing, sex, or graphic violence), and with good narration. I think my absolute favorite part of both books so far is the sweet relationship between the main character and her husband.

    "The ending was bad, but the rest was great!"

    This book has me torn.. I loved the narration, I loved the characters & I enjoyed the story and dynamic. However, the ending was just bad. I found myself wanting to yell at Deena for being so obliviously dumb. Without giving anything away, just know it is incredibly aggravating. It's as if the end was the only real spoiling factor, but it was a big one because it made it all feel like a frustrating let down.
    Otherwise though I really enjoyed the narration & I love the characters. So my heart is torn 50/50! I hope the following books do better with the conclusion.
    This book was provided to me at no cost, and I gave my honest review.

    "Cozy Mystery!"

    A cozy mystery series indeed. I just loved listening to this audiobook. It has all the perfection of a classical murder mystery with likeable yet questionable characters. I also love how the author was able to add in some humor here in there making it all around fun. The narrator is great using the perfect amount of different tones in her voice to bring each character to life.

    "Christmas Mayhem"

    Sharpe Edge was a good Cozy mystery! It has twists and turns that kept me guessing for a while. This is a fun cozy mystery set in a small town. The characters are quirky and interesting. Carolyn Brice Fitzhugh is a wealthy woman, who also is a philanthropist to the small town. Each year she hosts a Christmas party at her mansion. Carolyn is found dead at the bottom of the stairs in her wheelchair and all but her niece feel that this was not an accidental death. Estelle Fitzhugh is dating Deena Sharpe’s brother, and gets involved in proving that this was no accident. At first the prologue seems to make no sense, however the listener gets lots of clues to sort through to find the guilty person. There is a lot of money involved, several suitors, and at least one thief. Kelley Hazen does a superb job as narrator.
