Amazing story!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the characters in it. This is the third book in the series I've listened to and she has formed characters personalities so you want to know what happens with each one. Fantastic book! The narrator did an amazing job as well!

Driven to lisren

A wonderful series to read or listen to and this one is no different! Love how the charters from the first book have continued thru. They feel like old friends now. completely invested in their lives. The plot lines are engaging, entertaining and a bit sad this time but in a wonderful way. Highly recommended!

going to continue this great series by book

Story and Overall I loved. Read the previous two books on kindle and will go back to that for the next in line. I almost felt pitty with the Narrator. She does have a pretty nice voice, but more than often it felt like she's going to cry at any second. Sorry, I could not finish listening to it

Great Book

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite cozy mystery series. I enjoy the characters and how they continue to develop and grow. The mysteries provide enough twist and turns to keep the reader interested. Excepts from the books the characters write also add to the enjoyment of the book. Karen White does a great job reading and bring life into the characters. I can't wait for the next book in this series to be released by Audible.

Why did the author have to start adding sex?

The first two books in this series were great- a strong complex female lead with a good backstory, good interaction between characters, the requisite faithful pet, and even very decent mysteries. Where there was never ever doubt that the lead character was happy to have no commitment relationships (read casual sex) it was not until book three that the author decided to graphically describe the encounters. Authors need to make up their minds about what audience they want or they may just lose both.

A great story

I enjoy the continuity of the stories and the character development. This story holds a beautiful sadness.

Very enjoyable!

I really enjoyed this book. There's a little bit of everything from suspense, to romance, to friendship, to mystery! Even the narrator's voice has grown on me!
