Publisher's Summary

Who knew knitting could be so deadly!

Former-teacher-turned-reporter Deena Sharpe craves more adventure than covering dull city council meetings in the small town of Maycroft, Texas. But when she follows a hunch to investigate a story lead, she finds a dead woman strangled by a knitted scarf and becomes suspect number one.

To make matters worse, a new psychic in town has residents on edge. Strange happenings multiply as quickly as the list of murder suspects, and Deena finds herself with more adventure than she had bargained for. No pedicure is too painful and no dumpster is too deep as Deena seeks to unveil the killer before anyone else gets hurt.

Sharpe Mind, book three in the Cozy Suburbs Mystery series, offers listeners a healthy dose of intrigue along with a generous sprinkle of humor. If you like a mystery with good, clean fun, cozy up to Sharpe Mind today!

    "Not a Dull Moment!"

    Deena Sharpe has retired from teaching journalism and taken a job as a reporter, but it's not all it's cracked up to be. She thinks covering the city council meetings is boring and longs to be an investigative reporter. When a mysterious psychic reader and her brother move into town, Deena is assigned to write a feature on them. In the process, Deena discovers a body and is caught up in the investigation.

    This was a really cute cozy mystery that was plotted well and had some clever twists. There are plenty of characters but I never got confused about which character was which. The point of view revolves between about five different people and it really kept things interesting, and it managed to still hide the truth. I couldn't guess who the killer was ahead of time!

    Deena is a dear, and absolutely hilarious! I loved all the secondary characters as well.
    There were so many unexpected funny moments that had me laughing out loud. Deena's relationship with her husband was really sweet. This is the third book in the series, but it's the first one I read, and it can be read as a standalone.

    Kelley Hazen has the perfect voice to narrate this book, she narrates dramatically and with spirit, just like I'd imagine Deena speaking. She brought a lot of life to the story. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

    "Sharpe Mind"

    Sharpe Mind: Cozy Suburbs Mystery Series, Book 3
    : Lisa B. Thomas

    This is book 3 in this cozy mystery series. As a cozy it is a good clean listen. Deena Sharpe, former school teacher turned reporter finds the dead body of an elderly woman. Enter....Deena the investigator. There are many things going on in town with familiar folks and newcomers as well. Lisa B. Thomas spins a tale that could possibly happen. With some humor tossed in this was an entertaining listen. Looking forward to book 4.




    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kelley Hazen takes the characters and emotion of the story line and gives them life.

    "An Awesome Listen"

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it very entertaining. How much trouble can a small time journalist get herself into? A whole lot in this audiobook. The adventure never stops in this small Texan town for retire school teacher turned jounalist, Deena Sharpe. I enjoyed very much, and will be listen to more from this series.

    "Cute and Cozy!"

    This is the third book in the series and a standalone listen. I had read the book a few years ago. The characters are endearing. The story is original and has some unexpected humor. Being a cozy mystery, this is a clean book. The narrator Kelley Hazen did a very good performance with the various characters and was able to convey the right emotions. I found the clues to the murder were well plotted. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I leave it up to the professionals to write the synopsis as they are more eloquent. This book is a great listen and has some strong characters, but part is unbelievable (guy saying to lady, since you cooked I'll clean up). I was provided with this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "Fun Cozy Mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    Sharpe Mind is Book 3 in the Cozy Suburbs Mystery Series and can be listened to as a standalone story. Deena Sharpe, retired teacher turned journalist, has become bored with covering dull City Council meetings and longs for a little excitement in her job. When she discovers a murdered woman, her life becomes anything but dull. Be careful what you wish for, Deena! Once again, Deena is caught up in the middle of a murder investigation and a series of strange happenings in "quaint" Maycroft, Texas.

    Sharpe Mind was such a fun and entertaining listen. The story was well crafted with enough twists and turns to keep me guessing all the way through. I also enjoyed the humor and loved the relationship Deena had with her husband. Kelley Hazen does a great job with the characters and has a terrific narrative style that draws you into the story. After listening to two books in this series, I can't imagine a different narrator. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, you're sure to love Sharpe Mind and the rest of the series. With two very enthusiastic thumbs up, I highly recommend Sharpe Mind.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is my honest opinion.

    "Great Read"
    Any additional comments?

    Sharpe Mind by Lisa B. Thomas was a good read. Deena is a teacher turned reporter. Deena happens to find a dead body when investigating a lead story. Strange things start happening after a psychic comes to town. I enjoyed reading this book.

    "LOVE IT!"

    Out of towners bring dark secrets to Maycroft and Deena Sharpe finds herself in the middle of the crime. Lots of bad guys trying to pull the wool over the eyes of the township. Lots of good guys in peril. Deena takes some chances and has to make some important decisions. A fortune teller and her good for nothing boyfriend set Maycroft on its spiritual ear and make for some pretty funny situations. This is a good cozy - good mystery, good jokes, good fun. I also look forward to what will happen to Deena in the next one. She's become a friend!

    "CLEVER & ENJOYABLE SERIES"

    If you take a look at all the Cozy Suburbs Mystery series from Lisa B. Thomas you see right away the clever play on words with each of the titles. And it continues right into the stories themselves. This one has Maycroft, TX beseiged by disreputable city councilmen and wayward psychics, ex dancing girls and bounty hunters. Deena Sharpe, in her ever changing search to find herself begins and ends a new career. And BFF's become even closer. There's always a moment in each Cozy Suburbs Mystery where I find I'm really worried for a character or two and SHARE MIND is no different. This is a great cozy mystery. You may not be able to figure it out !

    "WHAT A COZY MYSTERY SHOULD BE"

    This is a fun listen. Easy to relax to, challenging enough in the mystery department to guessing and keep you listening, fun enough to make you laugh out loud. The characters are good with each other. I'm really getting to know Maycroft! Each title gives us more insight into this crazy community. And it is bringing the main characters closer together - I'm getting more invested. I like the possibility of magic in the air - fortunetellers and lost kids! You don't need to read the other books - this is a fine stand alone. If you like cozy mysteries you are going to love this one.
