Wow

Wow! I have found a new mystery author. Jen Pitts has written a great book. I found myself laughing out loud a few times, Jen's writing is both funny, fun and intriguing all in on great storyline. The story unfolds in such a way as you do not guess the ending something I like in a good mystery. I found my self not wanting to stop and listened to most of the book straight through. By the time I reached the end, I was ready to find out what was next for Sam. The narrator of this book is Blair Seibert and I think she is the perfect voice for Samantha. I can't wait to read more in this series.

An interesting mystery

Sammy the MC moves to New Orleans to try to learn of her birth parents. Jen gives you a taste of NOLA with her descriptions of the places and the atmosphere in the city. This is a mystery story that had me wondering through the to the conclusion who the perpretator was. I liked this story because of the writing and also the narrator did a good job with the range of character voices. I recommend this audiobook. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and this is my honest review.

Fun first cozy mystery!

The Key to Murder: A French Quarter Mystery is an enjoyable cozy. Who is the murderer? Kept me guessing until the reveal. Of course, I'm not giving that away. All the suspects are pretty likeable, no obvious villains. Setting is New Orleans and the author, Jen Pitts, does an excellent job of capturing the essence of the city. Looking forward to her next book.
Note: I was provided with a complimentary copy of the audiobook and asked to provide my unbiased review.

A scavenger hunt that revealed her past.

This was an intriguing tale, about an area a lot of people would like to visit, for historical and cultural reasons.
Then to add the mystery of the key and book, then some. Well, it adds to a nail bitting drama in the end.

A French Quarter Mystery

I love murder mystery's based in New Orleans. I have never been there, but it sounds like a interesting place to go to.
I liked the reason why the murderer killed, I did not see that coming. However, I found it slow going. It took a while before the murder was committed and things started to get interesting.
Looking forward to the next book in the series.
