Deena Sharpe uses her investigative talents again, despite promising her husband she would stay out of trouble after all the predicaments she's gotten herself into in the past. She decides to try a writing class at the local library which happens to be run by famous writer Max Decker. When his wife is killed and one of her friends accused, Deena is pulled into the investigation.
The reading was good, with various voices for the different characters and the accent suited to Deena Sharpe. I found it slightly slower than I would have liked but I am generally a fast reader.
The characters are well written and defined. And, as usual with the bad guys in the Cozy Suburbs Mystery Series, the bad guys have no heart at all. I can relate to the good guys in this series, but these bad guys.... I guess I just can't fathom people this bad. But, then again, I think I lead a sheltered life.
If you want a great mystery/cop story with action packed reading, this is definitely the book for you. I warn you though. Once you start with your first, you will be a fan for all of them.
I recommend this book highly.

SHARPE TURN: Cozy Suburbs Mystery Book #4
by Lisa B. Thomas
Deena Sharpe is back trying to figure out what's next for her career. This is a fun, clean, cozy mystery. There is plenty of suspense as the number of suspects grows. The characters are fun, and each one has a personality all their own. This series gets better and better with humor to keep the listener engaged; even though I figured out who the villain was about half way thru.I didn't guess the motive. I can't wait to see what will happen in the next book.
The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kelley Hazen gives an excellent performance as always! So much so, I'm listening again!

Good mystery, great characters, terrific comedy - the fight at the office is hilarious! I say no more - solid narration, new plot lines for the family. I loved it!
A very fun series and this one does not disappoint. A famous mystery writer moves to town and teaches a mystery writing course. His wife gets murdered and a friend of the family is accused - that's how Deena gets involved. Lots of twists and turns - that might have been more deeply fleshed out. But with the wonderful sub plots parallel to the mystery, I was NOT left wanting for entertainment. You get what you expect from a cozy mystery.
I love this series and it just keeps getting better and better. This time Deena takes a writing class. In her never ending search for who she wants to be now that she has retired from teaching she's writing a murder mystery when her famous novelist/teacher's wife turns up dead. Lots of family involvement here, including a wonderful turn from the Mother-In-Law. Good to see the return of the perfect neighbor. Real moments of caring with Deena's husband. And the humor just gets funnier and funnier. This is one crazy town!
