Publisher's Summary

Daisy McDare is back and better than ever.

Just as things are finally coming together for Daisy's life, another murder strikes the small, coastal town of Cozy Creek. This time a greedy real estate developer is the victim.

At first, Daisy is content to leave this case to the police. She'd rather focus on her interior decorating and her blossoming relationship with her new boyfriend. When Detective Crumple arrests the wrong suspect who also happens to be a friend of Daisy's, she realizes it's up to her to find the real killer before it's too late.

Who Done It.

This was a cute story. The characters were very entertaining. I only wish it could have been longer. This was my first book in this series. I would like to go back and do books 1, 2 and 3. I received this book free from the author for an honest review.

K. M. Morgan & Angie Hickman are a seasoned pair



K. M. Morgan's short stories with Daisy McDare (cute name) remind me of Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum series. Both are cute, cool, quirky, fun with a bit of klutzyiness and tons of smarts.

Angie Hickman is able to portray Daisy, as well as her friends and foes with 'believability' that is second to none.

4 stars for overall & performance. 3.5 stars for this cute story.

Fun cozy mystery

This is a fun little cozy mystery, and was my first Daisy McDare audiobook. Aside from just guessing, there really weren't enough clues for me to figure out who the villain was until big secrets were suddenly revealed near the end that gave the answer away. These secrets weren't alluded to or shown via clues. They were just presented because someone had told Daisy "off-screen" about them. It didn't take away from the story, but if you like to try to figure the mystery out yourself, there weren't enough clues for me to do it. Still, I enjoyed listening to the story, and Daisy's spunky spirit and chocolate addiction were fun.

The narration was great. Angie really channels Daisy's spirit and energy. Her depiction of the other characters is great too.

Short but likeable cozy mystery

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would. It's short enough for anyone to be able to finish in one sitting; it's also enjoyable both when it comes to the plot and the interpretation. The characters are skilfully sketched with a few lines/words and the pace of the story is swift, which is good for a cozy mystery...

What other book might you compare The Deadly Real Estate Affair to and why?

I'd compare it to some stories by Agatha Christie - it has a similar construction: first, expositions of all the characters through dialogues and situations seen or overheard by others, then the crime itself, and then the investigation carried out by the detective mainly through another set of conversations... And although Agatha Christie is a definite master of crime books, I think Ms Morgan is equally enjoyable:)

Which character – as performed by Angie Hickman – was your favorite?

I liked the way Ms Hickman "voiced" Grannie Annie:) She really sounded older than the other women characters. <br/>Generally, compared to other narrators I've listened to so far, Ms Hickman is the one who doesn't act out the text of the book so much. Rather, she just reads it, adding some voice modulations for different characters but not trying to be really "manly" when the male characters appear, which is a good decision here because she has a rather high pitched though really nice female voice. She would have sounded really strange trying to sound like a 50-60-year-old man:)<br/>I also liked the tempo of Ms Hickman's reading - it was quite fast but not too fast for a non-native speaker of English like me to miss anything from the story:)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Well, it was funny in places:) I liked the "cupcakes and chocolate" theme coming back in the least expected moments:) And the conversation on "chick flicks" with the police detective was great:)

Worth it, if only for the food

Would you consider the audio edition of The Deadly Real Estate Affair to be better than the print version?

Yes, because of the accents

Have you listened to any of Angie Hickman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, this is the same as her others, amazing and sassy.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really

Any additional comments?

I love the fun and flirty notes in this book, this is the first I've read in the series but it is worth it as a standalone. its not super long, but a nice series to get into if you love cozy mysteries. I received this free book, in return for an unbiased review

Great Read

Any additional comments?

The Deadly Real Estate Affair by K.M. Morgan was a good read. Daisy's life was just starting to get back to normal when her new boss turns up dead. Daisy wanted to leave the latter to the police until the police arrest her friend. This was a great read, I can't wait to read more by K.M. Morgan.

Needs better character development

I agree with another reviewer who said that this book discusses food almost non stop. It's basically in relation to Daisy. Which leads me to my question, is Daisy a toddler or an adult? Because she carries around "chocolate treats" to snack on during stressful times around the clock. No joke, it's referenced about 5 times by chapter 4 how Daisy needs her treats to calm her nerves or soothe her boredom. It's really odd.. a functioning adult can handle life without needing snacks for every small stress. I don't quite understand this character, she seems immature for her age. This shows a lot throughout the story & becomes glaring obvious on a few occasions. Daisy could use some better character development & added depth.

The Deadly Real Estate Affair

The Deadly Real Estate Affair (Daisy McDare #4)
by K.M. Morgan

Thanks K. M. Morgan for the Daisy anthology. At first I was a little skeptical, when I encountered all the cliches. I thought “oh oh” this author hasn't quite “got it”, until I realized the series is one big cliché. After that I relaxed and enjoyed the “who dunnit!” This was a nice “change of pace.”


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Angie Hickman.

cute and cozy

This story was written by a new author to me. I enjoyed her flowing style, but all of the food references got old. I'm trying to diet and could not get food off my mind. The narrator did a good performance, but I was sidetracked by the constant mention of food. This is a clean and cozy mystery.

Not for me.

Any additional comments?

I found the main character to be patronising. She told the detective that she is going to solve the crime because he got the wrong man and can't solve anything. Then she solves the case in two days with little help from anybody. As for her boyfriend he loves her more then she does in my opinion. He seems to understand her yet she did not understand him or seem to care. He kept surprising her. You would think that she would do the same but no. I don't know why he stays with her. <br/>This is in no way a reflection on the author it is my honest opinion on the book.<br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
