    I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.

    Story
    "Sprinkled with Humor and a Sweet Treat!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would totally recommend this book to a friend. Especially if they love cozy mysteries, Stephanie Plum, and Hannah Swensen. It was like a cozy mystery of the both of those characters. The story was fun and light, and up until the very end I was unsure of the killer. I had my suspicions, but I will not tell you if I was right or wrong, why spoil the fun?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sprinkle with Murder?

    Memorable moments... I loved hearing about the Bridezilla moment with the main character (Mel) and Christie. To think about having that much money and think you are so entitled, I cannot imagine.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Boyce – was your favorite?

    I loved Mel of course, and I also loved her friend Angie.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I did listen to this book all in one sitting on a car trip. I loved it so much that I went out and got the rest of the series all in one swoop. I cannot wait to dig right in and fix that sweet tooth. This is the perfect blend of sweet confection, humor, and a little spice. Highly recommend.


    Any additional comments?

    Give it a try, my biggest surprise so far this year!

    "Cute book... will listen to another"

    The story was enjoyable. I wanted a light story and it fit the bill.

    While I found the narrators voice quality enjoyable, I wondered many times if she had read the story ahead of time. The tone of her voice did not fit the action several times and her sentences were choppy- which detracted from the storyline. I'm sure she's a fine narrator, but this performance could have used some fine tuning.

    "worth a listen"

    Good story, a little predictable. Narrative needed more emotion and character. Easy listen and did keep you interested.

    "Such a fun book!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Sprinkle with Murder the most enjoyable?

    I loved the storyline of this fun mystery! I have never read or listened to any books by Jenn McKinlay and I am so thrilled to have found a new author I love!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Fun little storyline. I did predict the ending, but it was still super fun to listen to! There is no real naughty language, I think they swear a couple of times, but it's not a constant. There's also no love scenes which I am glad for. My kids are around when I'm listening to books so I love books that are clean to listen to!


    Which character – as performed by Susan Boyce – was your favorite?

    Melanie.

    "Really nice!"

    This is a good story. The characters are believable, although I almost returned it at first. First I thought Mel's mother was a disaster. She had no boundaries and no respect for her daughter's privacy. Second, I thought Mel was pretty stupid getting involved in the wedding cupcake order. It sounds like her business was already successful and if she was such good friends with the groom, why didn't she talk to him about her concerns regarding the contract. It was a relief how that part played out. The characters seemed to mature later on. I'm not sure that it was worth the price. I'm going to have to do a little price research for this author. Usually I'm ok with the prices, but this one was different.
