Good start til the series

Story line is pretty well developed. The book itself is a quick listen & if you listen more than once you'll pick up new things. Characters come together very well.

Great for passing the time

The author did a great job of setting up the story and characters. The only issue I had was the length of the book. Certain spots could’ve had some more content to add to the plot and help round it out. The narrator did a great job telling the story as well. This is a great book to pick up especially if you have an itch for a crime novel.

Good story!

I really enjoyed the character and storyline. Iris is funny. Parker is strong. Kay annoyed me at first but grew on me! The "bod guys" were surprising. At least one was. I recommend this enjoyable mystery!

Another man's trash is another man's treasure!

When Kay Walker's grandfather loses a treasure near and dear to his heart, she hires Parker, a detective, to help her locate the person who stole it. Kay and Parker are complete opposites, and though they don't get along, the two decide to stick together to complete the case.

This is a F/F story. This book has romance and mystery. It is well written and has well developed characters. This book is very relatable. I enjoyed it.

Quick listen

Kris Szczesny did a good job of distinguishing between the several different characters in the story.

This is a novella so there isn’t a lot of detail. I enjoyed the story and had fun trying to figure out the mystery as it unfolded.

Struggled to finish it.

The narrator's male voices made them sound like Patrick from Spongebob Squarepants. No offense to the author, but the story was contrived and predictable. I don't recommend this book at all.

Sentiment to the Heart

Story progressed quickly. The story was an interesting and enjoyable one. Parker is strong and smart. Looking forward to the next story.

sweet mystery

This was a cute story with 2 good main characters and a straight forward mystery, but I found the writting style rather simplistic which I wasnt so keen on.
The narration was over done which put me off thought the different accents were quite good.

interesting plotline

This was a well written story but there is no warning that this book is an LGBT type book which in my opinion should be known in the case of those who do not wish to read/listen to those type of books. I still quite enjoyed the book otherwise.

Narration was great and on point.

I was gifted this book for an honest review of it

Interesting.

Parker takes a case for Kent to find a treasure map that was stolen. The case includes his grand-daughter Kay, who wants to be a part of every step.

There are lots of twists and turns in the story.

Kris Szczesny does a good job with the different characters!

Sentiment to the heart

This is a quick listen with two main female character. Be warned this is an LGBT which from the blurb you would have not known. I was surprised when I started to listen to it. However, only kissing is refered.
I will not go on to read/listen to the next book because this is not my type of thing.
I found the narrator to be a lot better in narrating this book then one other book I have listened too.

Quick, light listen

This was a very short mystery story where a lot of the writing was in short, not-too-descriptive sentences. I actually slowed the listening speed down to see if it sounded more natural at a slower speed. This would be good choice for someone who doesn't like a lot of embellishment. For example, instead of describing what the character was feeling, the author would just say something like "it made her sad that this happened". The two main characters happened to both be female, but there was only a brief reference to a kiss or two (PG rated on an intensity scale).

The performer did make the characters have different voices which I appreciated.

Avery Detective Agency, book 1. Totally worth it!

When Kay Walker's grandfather loses a treasure, they hire Parker, a detective, to help her locate the person that stole it. 
Parker is a former officer, who started her own detective business to help people out with their problems. She is a strong person who wants to continue till she has all the answers.
In this book she travels to a deserted island with Kay to find the person who stole the map (to find the treasure).
They find a path on the island, and follow the trails. Kay and Parker and complete opposites but decide to stick together to complete the case.
Parker and Kay slowly fall in love with each other and try to unravel the secrets behind their case.
Bit by bit they realise the shocking truth.
Nicole did a really good job in writing this book. It is a sweet story with twists and turns. Once you started this audiobook, you want to keep listening and find out what really happens to the map and who stole it.
I recommend this audiobook and would advice you to listen to book 2 and 3 of this series. I really hope Nicole would write book 4 and so on because I miss listening to this series.

Quick and fun listen!

Novellas can be too short and underdeveloped, but Nicole Higginbotham-Hogue nails it with this short mystery. A cross between a cozy and a romantic suspense, it has great characters, a hint of humor and a mystery to solve! Kay is trying to find something her grandfather has hidden and hires Kay's agency to help her. These two butt heads, have witty banter and find they have feelings for each other. But will they solve the case? It's hard to determine who to trust, but it is a fun ride! Enjoy this story narrated by Kris Szczesny.
