Christmas Cozy Mystery

What about Yvette Keller’s performance did you like?

Her narrations are excellent. I can't imagine a Viola Roberts mystery without her!

Any additional comments?

Viola Robert's cozy mysteries continue with a short Christmas-themed story. This time Viola is planning a party for the Mayor and provides holiday desserts. A mystery illness breaks out at the party and Viola helps the police solve the case. I love to listen to these types of stories over the Christmas season. It is great to listen to while decorating or baking. This was a fun cozy further developing the characters in the series. Please continue the series!

Cute cosy mystery

A very quick, cute, cosy mystery, where Viola has to figure out who poisoned the Christmas pudding that caused guests at the mayor’s party to become sick. The narrator of the audiobook did a good job of bringing life to the characters and making this light, short story enjoyable. Even though it was easy to guess the culprit, it is still an entertaining tale.

I found it fun and intriguing, and enjoyed the premise particularly.
I like the narrator's smooth voice and hearing the different choices for new characters' voices.
