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.

    "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.

    "REALLY FUN"

    Deena Sharpe is a feisty retired teacher turned reluctant detective. Her small town of Maycroft is quite a hotbed for suspense. This is a fun summer read - don't let the Christmas lights fool you - but also it would be great for those folks who like to listen to Christmas-y stuff at that time of year. The character interactions are believable, lovable and fun. The narrator is super and very funny. Feeling the characters develop as the story moves along also makes the story go really fast. I was caught by a couple red herrings - the mystery was great. A soft edge but yes, a sharp one - I will want to visit Maycroft again and spend more time with Deena and her friends and family.

    "Keeps You Guessing!"

    Sharpe Edge was a great Cozy mystery! It has twists and turns that kept me guessing until the very end. It was quite humorous as well, I even found myself laughing out loud in parts. Kelley Hazen does a superb job as narrator. I could easily distinguish between characters and her voice had the perfect inflection, never dull or monotone as some I have listened to. I would definitely listen to other books narrated by her. I received this audiobook free via Audioboom which did not influence my honest review.

    "Sharpe Edge"

    SHARPE EDGE: Cozy Suburbs Mystery Series
    : Lisa B. Thomas

    A fun cozy mystery set in a small town. The characters are quirky yet they interact well with each other.....not always happily. The listener gets lots of clues to sort through to find the guilty person. I look forward to the next books in the series.




    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kelley Hazen makes the listening enjoyable.

    Story
    "Quirky mystery"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was good, entertaining and a bit quirky, all the things a "cozy mystery" should be. Deena is engaging and funny. When Carolyn rolls down the stairs to her death, Deena is looking to solve the mystery.


    Would you recommend Sharpe Edge to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe the paperback version, I believe it would be a quick read that would hold your attention, but, I would not recommend the audible version.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I don't think Kelly Hazen was a good choice to narrate this story. I found her voice grating and a tad irritating to listen to.


    Did Sharpe Edge inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?
