real firenship

After a month without speaking with Peter, Jolene is sure their friendship didn’t make it through the truth. But when a woman dies during a convention Jolene, Will and Heidi ara attending Peter, Jolene and Daisy will need to work together in order to unravel the mystery. It’s a pity that Jolene is having more fun with Daisy than with Peter because he is giving her the cold shoulder, even if he seems a little off. great audiobook

good standalone mystery

This is the fifth in the series. After Jolene tells Peter the truth about her shifter status and loss of magical abilities, the couple is on the outs. Their first encounter after the reveal (a month later) is very awkward. It is interesting how Daisy and Jolene get along much better nowadays. You can see that Daisy deeply cares about Peter and wants him to be happy. Throughout the story we see that both Jolene and Peter did not bring their “A game to” to the investigation.

So, who killed the owner of the pyramid scheme and why?
I enjoyed the story and the narrator just enhances the story. The twists, turns, and revelations about Jolene's curse just brings more to the party.

A perfect capture of real pyramid schemes

I love this series. Erin weaves a very compelling story as a fallen from grace lawyer now in a magical slum becomes a police consultant. It has the best parts of murder mysteries mixed with the best parts of a magical world. As a recent law grad, I also love the legal references. This mystery has a good hook and keeps you guessing along the way as interesting people are introduced. The story even gets around the gritty downside of audio mysteries by having its own local sets of curses so that profanity isn't off putting or even horrible. There is no traditional profanity and even my kids love to hear the story about Joleen :)

Erin breaks down the familiar aspects of multi level marketing. It is masterfully orchestrated and quite surprising in its twists and turns! Love the story.

Enjoyable Listen

Erin Johnson did it again. Pig Little Lies combines magic, mystery, snark, and laughter. Hannah Somerville does a wonderful job of bringing the characters and world Erin has created to life. Now that Peter knows Jolene’s secret, can they move forward and continue to work together? Perhaps even rekindle that romantic spark that had had begun to grow? Or will they continue to studiously avoid one another despite their mutual attraction?

Jolene is now talking to a pig

After Jolene reveals that she is/was a shifter to her police friend Peter she is devastated when he avoids her. She is at an event when a woman is murdered and she works the case with Peter. She just wants it to be like it was before her shifter admission but Peter can't seem to let it go. To him it is all about her not telling him sooner and to her it is should she have told him? Jolene and Peter's relationship comes more to the forefront in this story and that makes this book a page turner. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and this is my honest review.

Magical Listen!

Pig Little Lies by Erin Johnson is such a fun listen! This book is part of the Magic Market Mysteries series. The author writes endearing characters, vibrant imagery, and a captivating storyline. I love escaping with this author and narrator. Hannah Somerville is delightful to listen to. She adds so much to the book with her energy and enthusiasm. She really brings the characters to life, even Daisy the talking police dog.

This Series is Such a Stress Reliever

I enjoy this series so much. It is a cozy-themed set with a shape shifter (Jolene) who has been cursed with magic and now she can talk to animals. Okay. I am a sucker for books with talking critters. Daisy the German Shepherd lie detector steals so many scenes. The dog is in love with her human police officer handler and he loves her as well. Jolene and the officer were a partnership and possible romantic couple until he finds out she was born a shifter, apparently in this magical world shifters are considered lesser, dirty humans. I cannot help but think of the racism rampant in society and how you are judged by circumstances out of your control rather than your good deeds. Jolene suffers like this. The mysteries are good and in this book it is a murder in a Ponzi scheme company. Who killed the owner with the pet pig? Everyone associated with her probably wanted to. Can Jolene get back in Peter’s good graces? Should she want to? This is good world-building where we become invested in the characters’ lives. They have a lot of issues navigating society on the island. I look forward to the next installment. The narrator does a great job, by the way. Note to author: Can Daisy get her own story? I would LOVE her point of view.

Another great read

I'm really enjoying this series. Would advise you to read the previous books but it's still a great stand alone audio book. Great characters. Loved the twist at the end. Can't wait for the next audio book in the series!

Shifty spells and sea snakes make for a lot of fun

I love this series. Actually I love anything this author writes and am always eager for the latest audio book. This is because she has a way of combining colourful and interesting characters with a good mystery. And this book doesn't let me down. Each adventure whether it is this series or the spells and caramels series offer magic, mystery, romance and amusing sidekicks with lie sniffing dogs or talking flames and each are carefully crafted so that you feel like you are walking the cobbled streets of Bejumeir and joining in on the mystery. I didn't see the twist in the story coming and was no where near solving the mystery, which is always a plus in my book. The author has left the ending on a cliff hanger of sorts and I really hope the new book is out soon.
Jolene finally confessed to Peter, she is a cursed shifter and he didn't take it well leading him to dissolved there partnership. Jolene's friend talk her into going to a potions seminar where at least she would get some free food. She nearly walks out when she learns it is a pyramid scheme but free food is free food and it should be good for a laugh. By the end of the night she wishes she had, when the owner collapses on stage and dies after drinking a potion. The police are called and Jolene finds herself once again acting as a consultation for the police and working with Peter and Daisy. Things are not like were and tension between them is tense. Can she solve the murder and find a way to get Peter to trust her again? The suspect list is high with lots of unhappy people who brought into the scheme, including Jolene's own friends and not all the potions worked like they were meant to. Jolene a victim of a potion gone wrong herself can sympathize but can she catch a killer?
I like the narrator as she uses a wide range of voices and sounds to bring the story to life in the most magical way possible.
