Good narrator!

cosy-mystery, law-enforcement, amateur-sleuth, women-sleuths, murder-investigation, england

Freelance cook Jenny Starling has an intellect even more impressive than her cooking skills or her dramatic appearance and isn't hesitant to wield it along with her powers of observation and deduction. Even if the constabulary become a mite testy upon finding out that she's in residence. The mystery itself is somewhat convoluted and full of red herrings, surprises, and twists, including the antics of Henry the tortoise. I love this book and this series!
I requested and received a free ebook copy from Joffe Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

A year later and I've bought the audio!

The Castle Mystery

I really love the mystery series and this was no exception. The way Jenny Starling solves the murder is so good, it keeps you guessing and really love the meals prepared by fhe cook. The everyday life of the castle was very interesting too. I will definitely be reading/listening to more! The narration was excellent.

Absolute rubbish.

I have been a member of Audible for quite a few years and purchased over 400 books. This book has had the most obvious plot and frustrating ending of all of them. Totally convoluted and drawn out finish that totally killed the reading experience. Had the total opposite of a good read.

Ok, nothing special

It was an easy enough listen and the story was ok-ish, but I felt, and I am sure others may not agree, that is did not set the stage or setting well enough for me. Sounded like it was written as a early 20th Century period, but turned out to be much later from what I can gather. Some of the main characters, whilst moderately entertaining, dont seem to fit into the time period. The narration was ok.

The unsolvable conundrum

The alibis of the suspects seemed Rock solid. The relationships ranged from amusing to curious. I was itching to find out "who Dunn it" from start to end!
