Publisher's Summary

Sarah Garland, a retired homicide detective who's gone through a painful divorce, seems to have found her peace at last, as a coffeeshop owner in the sleepy (and freezing) small town of Snow Falls, Alaska. What she didn't expect was for her past life to catch up with her. Or for her new life as a mystery writer to inspire a deadly killer to target her. 

Yet when the killer leaves a frightening clue - a creepy snowman, wearing a leather jacket and eating a peppermint candy cane, left in front of her cabin - Sarah begins to suspect Conrad Spencer, the new detective in town, who is pursuing a murderer of his own. Soon it becomes obvious that the sleuths would have to join forces in order to catch the killer. Sarah and Conrad must put their tragic pasts behind them and find out who's after her before the trail becomes frozen.

A Killer Snowman

I liked this book. Sara is an exdetective from Los Angeles who has turned Murder Author that has moved to Alaska. Now it looks like someone from her past has found her and is using her books to threaten her or it may be a rabid fan. Anyways it's a good book. And will keep you guessing til the end.

The Snowman Killer

Sarah gives up her job as a detective in LA to become a mystery writer. She moves to Alaska to have a fresh start and focus on her writing. Everything is fine until she finds herself in the middle of a mystery... basically someone is acting out her latest murder mystery and she just may end up being the victim if she doesn’t solve it before it’s to late.

Definitely a great start to a new cozy mystery series. While the narration was well done, I wasn’t a fan of a few of the different character voices.

Cozy mystery

The narrator was not the best for this book. Some of the characters sounded funny but it did not really annoy me as much as it did others, I have listened to a lot worse.

As for the book, it wasn't too bad, I liked how they used logic to get to the answer but I found it really hard to believe that Detective Conrad left a lot of the thinking for Sarah to do since we know he is just as good as she is. I would have liked him to be more involved in theories, he left it all to Sarah. He acted like a detective who doesn't know what he is doing.
Other then this I actually liked it and that is why I gave it four stars.
I would recommend it to those who love short cozy mysteries.
There is no profanity/sexual content or violence (mild).

Cozy Mystery!

I really enjoyed this short book. I found the imagery to be really good and the narrator did a great job. Sheree Wichard performed the various characters with distinguishable voices. I thought the author Wendy Meadows really kept the suspense going and loved how the killer was revealed. This book is the beginning of a new series and I would definitely listen to more by both the author and narrator. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

A Super Neat Cozy Mystery With Excellent Narration

Audiobook: THE SNOWMAN KILLER
( Alaska Cozy Mystery )

The Snowman Killer was a great listen. I loved this audiobook for a three hour action-packed cozy. It was a complete short with a fun setting in Alaska and great characters with Sarah and Conrad. This was a light listen, not super heavy. I really enjoyed it. This is the first audiobook I've listened to by Wendy Meadows but not the first with this narrater.

Narrator:

Sheree Wichard was the perfect reader for this audiobook. I've listened to her before and love her work. This one was terrific with the different characterizations along with good voice inflectioms. I really enjoy listening to her. This was an overall enjoyable listen.

The Snowman Killer

Sarah is a retired homicide detective, who recently moved to Alaska. Her 2 new careers are quite different. One is her cover story, as a coffee shop owner. The other is her big secret, she is a mystery writer. Her hit series and her past are about to catch up with her though as someone is trying to recreate her books and bring the killer to life. This is a really fun and fast paced story. I loved the unique characters that bring the story to life. The narration is nice. Her female characters are easy to listen to.

Cozy mystery

This was my first book by Wendy Meadows. I did enjoy the story very much but Sheree Wichard's narration wasn't so great. A lot of her character voices kind of got on my nerves. I was able to get through the whole story though.

In the story Sarah was a detective turned writer. She left the cop life and moved to Alaska for a quiet life to relax and write. When during a snow storm snow men keep ending up in her yard and someone has broken into her home and left wet footprints all around. The person who is stalking Sarah is coming after her just like in one of Sarah's books. Will Sarah and her friends be able to catch the stalker or die trying?

More Than the Weather is Frightful

A stalker decides to reenact a mystery writer's last novel in this small town Alaskan cozy mystery. This well written contemporary story features a former big city police officer turned writer who brings her police knowledge and a knack for solving puzzles. Supported by a perky best friend and a mysterious eastern seaboard cop who is moonlighting with the local police while trying to solve his ex-wife's murder. The cast is filled out by small town locals and a whole lot of snow.
Fun, light reading.

not very good

I struggled to finish this one. The writing was amateurish, the plot was unbelievable, and the narration was almost painful to listen to at points (terrible accents, annoying character voices, odd inflection). I'm not sorry to say that I was not at all impressed.
