Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Desert Palms, a cozy Arizona tourist town set up against the mountains.

Deanna Devlin is a 32-year-old reporter who dreams of tackling hard-nosed stories, but is stuck writing puff pieces for the local paper.

When a murder strikes Desert Palms, Deanna suddenly gets her chance to cover some hard-hitting news.

Unfortunately, one of Deanna's good friends is wrongly suspected as the killer by the local police detective. To prove her friend's innocence, Deanna has no choice but to take matters into her own hands and find the real killer herself.

A Fun Cozy Mystery

This is book two in the series but a great cozy mystery as a stand alone. Deanna is certain her friend is innocent of murder. She feels she needs to investigate, and Grandma Gwen wants her too. Grandma Gwen is funny with her jokes. At the engagement party and it turns into murder.. She has so many people to investigate. The characters are believable and likable. Amazing how many ride people that are innocent. You have a handsome detective which adds to the story. Rebecca Hanson is the Narrator of the book and is able to capture your interest and pull you to the end. This is a great book for to use as a family night, or for your teens or a slumber party. This book is clean, no gore or foul language or sex. I reccommend this book.

desert detective cozy mystery

This series is the worst I have listened to, is not well written and the reader's voice is very annoying and not very well read, don't waist your money.

Prescription to die for

I'm ambivalent. The story was a little bit boring. Perhaps the narration had a lot to do with it. The story lacked substance. Right now, I have no interest in continuing this series.

A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down

This is the first book in the series and the first one I have listened to but it won't be the last as I am ready to start book two after writing this review. I liked the characters especially the feisty Granma and I hope she gets to play a bigger part in the series as I like the idea of a elderly tv detective officinardo solving the crime. Don't get me wrong I did like the main character who is a reporter but the grandma caught my imagination.
Deanna is a reporter of fluffy News items and longs to be like her favourite tv detective and report on real crimes. That is until she attends the engagement party for her friend. With all the family fireworks flying it is no surprise when the night ends in tragedy and a body is discovered. With none of the party guest able to proved alibi's the suspect pool looks large but that doesn't stop the police focusing in on Deanna's friend, leaving her no choice but to investigate before her friend is arrested for a crime that there is no way she committed.
The narrator is good and easy to listen to.

My Honest Review

regardless of the length of this book I enjoyed it a lot, the author has a way of helping you understand the characters in few words and situations and then the action of the book begins, its not rushed but still intriguing until the end
