Publisher's Summary

When a traveling circus comes to the town of Wachita, Texas bad things begin to happen under the Big Top. Super-sized sleuths, Sue Jan and Lovita take to the tents to track down a crazy clown killer, even though Lovita is fixing to give birth in just a few short weeks. And if that's not enough, a scary Sasquatch is sighted in the Wachita woods, attracting a TV news reporter, a Bigfoot investigative team and a reality show film crew. The townsfolk are shaking in their cowboy boots but Sue Jan and Lovita aren't clowning around.

    The girls are back We see a traveling circus with "Creepy Clowns" and a whole bunch of strange characters. We get lots of snarky remarks and I found myself laughing out loud. It gets funnier everytime. Kudos to the narrator. Great job !!!

    "Last audiobook of the series for now"

    I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for a honest review.

    Weird things start happening again when a traveling circus comes to Wachita. Just at their arrival there is an attempt of murder one of the crew members. Sue Jan and Lovita will not be able to refrain themselves from investigating this new mystery, even though Lovita is almost at the end of her pregnancy. Things start to get even weirder when a bigfoot is spotted in the woods surrounding the town and people from the media arrive in order to document it.

    I have listened to this book with a mix of joy and sadness. I love this series, and knowing that for now this is the last book makes me sad, because I will really miss Sue Jan and Lovita, and their adventures. In this case we are against a quite convoluted mystery, in which we have several people being murdered and many possible culprits. The plot is interestingly built, with the right dose of humor and witty comments from our two female forensics to keep the listener hooked to the story.

    This time I had more issues keeping track of all the new characters because there were more than in previous books, most of them belonging to the circus crew, but Kozar did a good job again at giving them distinctive characteristics and personalities. I think she has great abilities in creating picturesque characters and bringing them to life in a way that the listener is able to see them in their mind.

    This series is very good, but my main reason to listen to these books is that they are narrated by Michelle Babb. I am sure that she could read the shopping list and make it compelling. The characters' personalities gain an extra dimension thanks to Babb's narrating and interpreting skills. And she is able to make the witty comments sound even funnier than they would be in print.

    There is a seventh book of this series but it is not available yet as an audiobook. I hope it will be soon though. I will miss Sue Jan and Lovita and their crazy adventures.

    "Another Charming Mystery"
    What made the experience of listening to Weighty Matters the most enjoyable?

    I really like the characters in this book. You could listen to this book by itself, or you could listen to the series. This is the fourth book I have listened to in this series and I have enjoyed each one. The mystery is well written and the wrap up is done very well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I always love a good mystery. I really wasn't sure about the ending. Many times I can predict the ending of a mystery as I read it, but this one I wasn't able to do that.


    Which character – as performed by Michelle Babb – was your favorite?

    I love Lovita. She is so caring and calm. I would love to meet her in real life. I love the way Michelle does the different character voices. It really makes it easy to follow the story-line as you are easily able to identify the speaker.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to give away anything, but I really enjoyed the wrap up and also the recipes at the end.


    Any additional comments?

    This was really enjoyable. I didn't lose interest, so I would say it kept my attention. I really like this series.

    Any additional comments?

    Weighty Matters by Linda P. Kozar was a great read by the author. This was another mystery solved by Sue Jan and Lolita. I loved reading them solve strange things that happen around the traveling circus in town. This was a must read.

    "The Show Must Go On"
    What did you love best about Weighty Matters?

    The circus is coming to town in the Weighty Measures by Linda Kozar. When the circus arrives in Wachita mysterious things start to happen and it is not just the magic act. Accidents start to happen from the minute the circus arrives in town. Also several bigfoot sightings. The town's new sheriff welcomes the forensic females’ help. Lovita and Sue Jane are back together to solve another murder or two. Lovita is 9 months pregnant and could give birth at any time, so she has to do her sleuthing via earbud though part of the book while Sue Jan goes to investigate. Can the ladies help solve the mysteries before Lovita gives birth? Is bigfoot real? Will the show go on or is the end of the circus?<br/> <br/>I really enjoyed this book. I am glad Lovita is back. I really enjoy the relationship of the two best friends. Even though they sometimes bicker they love one another as only longtime friends can. This storyline is great, a few red herrings along to way to keep you guessing who-did-it. Great pace, no bad language, graphic violence or sex scenes. Great cozy mystery.<br/> <br/>Narrator Michelle Babb does not disappoint. She has great comedic timing, love her accents and tone of voice. She is a natural storyteller. I could not imaging Lovita or Sue Jan or the others without Mrs. Babbs voice bringing them to life. <br/> <br/> I voluntarily received this book for an honest review. All thoughts and ideas are my own.<br/>

    "you'll love to laugh with this book"

    I was gifted this audio ARC for a honest and unbiased review from the author/narrator.
    I'm so in love with this series, Lovita is my favorite in all the books.
    Now the circus is in town, driving down main street and the mystery begins.
    Linda Kozar is a great author she has you laughing off your seat with this book.
    Michelle Babb is my favorite narrator of all time. Her accent lends to the book being so good. Michelle puts you right on the street with the girls.
    I highly recommend this audio book to anyone who loves a good cosy mystery. Also look for any book written by Linda Kozar and any book narrated by Michelle Babb.

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

    Yes, it is a great story. I didn't see all of the end coming, but i did figure some of it out which makes it that much better.... not knowing everything until the big reveal :)


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Maybe not the edge of the seat, but i did want to keep listening to find out the who/what/when/and why


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I thought the cemetery was pretty darn funny.


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

    I did laugh out loud a few times. The cemetery scene during an interview as well as the "Mayors wife" stealing the lime light.

    Any additional comments?

    I didn't like this one as I liked the others in the series. I believe it is more to do with Sue Jan's immaturity and humour that I did not find funny. <br/>Michelle Babb is excellent as a narrator. She brings out all the characters in 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.
