Beautiful, nuanced and poignant

I really loved this audiobook. It has such a wonderful balance of lightheartedness, mystery and darkness. The narrator tells the story in a manner where you feel like you're around a campfire. She draws you in with the humanness and humor of the characters while adding just the right touch of tension. So fun!

Really have fallen for these characters!

These people really help one another. The books are mysteries with heart. What is family? Is a central theme. I look forward to the next book!

Great Read

Zion Sawyer Box Set: Volume One was a great read by M.L. Hamilton. This book consists of the first five books in the Zion Sawyer Series: Cappuccino, Cafe Au Last, Espresso, Cafe Macchiato, and Americano. The books follow the residents of Sequoia as well as Zion and Tate solving mysteries. Kelley Hazen did a great job of bringing life to the characters. I really enjoyed reading Zion and Tate's story and can't wait to read more in this series.

Characters of Sequoia

I enjoy a good cozy mystery once in a while and enjoyed this one especially the narration and character development. Cappuccino-The main character of Zion Sawyer found out her birth mother Vivian Bradley has died and left her all of her possessions in Sequoia CA and goes there to meet the lawyer. He tells her she is now owner of coffee shop, cottage and some money (you have to listen to find out what happens). It has great character development and liked her parents (Gabi and Joe), Tate and Sheriff Wilson and the book has an unexpected ending. I really enjoyed when she ended her relationship with Insurance Company. Cafe au Lait-Zion Sawyer now owner of the coffee shop in Sequoia CA and is dating lawyer David while working on a murder case with Tate as her worker Deimos is the lead suspect all while the café is super busy due to music festival going on. A new character of Jaguar and liked her parents Gabi and Joe, Logan and her kitten Cleo. Espresso- Zion Sawyer is dating Tate. Jaguar now has music shop and sees his daughter, Rebecca longtime friend came to stay at Zion’s, and Tate is fostering Logan. This book is about Poole, also a police officer from LA who worked a case with Tate, he is on suspension from shooting a kid back in LA this is where the mystery comes in.The book had an unexpected ending. Caffe Macchiato -Zion Sawyer, Tate and Logan and other town characters during the Christmas time. Logan’s father Mitch Baxter shows up to take over custody and is found dead and Logan is suspect. Also Logan finds out he has half-brother. As usually it is Tate and Zion to investigate the real killer. Americano-.There are new characters such as Evie, hired to work the Half Café. Logan turns 18 and Tate want to get him something and to go to the prom. Joe and Gabi (Zion’s parents) are so such fun and good hearted. Lorenzo (casino boss) ask Tate to investigate the death of Dr.Germs (drug dealer) found frozen in the freezer. Recommend if you enjoy cozy mystery series. Keep them coming. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Wonderful Series

It all started with ML Hamilton’s Peyton Brook book series. When I had listened to it twice I realized it was time to find a new series, that is when I found the Zion Sawyer series. It is an exciting, sit on the edge of you seat series. I found myself crying, laughing and unable to turn off the audible books. So if you are looking for something to listen to that will make you drive around the block because you don’t want to stop listening, this is that series!

very predictable

Narrator not the best at relaying emotion. Story was so predictable, that you know what is going to happen way before it is revealed. Definitely not an much of a mystery.

5 Great Books!

Zion Sawyer Box Set Volume 1 by M.L. Hamilton is incredible. The books are standalone listens, tied together by characters.
Book 1, Cappuccino --
ML Hamilton has a writing style that pulls me in. Cappuccino is a fun cozy mystery that appeals to my senses. I found the characters to be endearing and loved the small town atmosphere. Kelley Hazen's performance was flawless. She brings the characters to life giving them distinguishable voices. I could hear exactly who was speaking. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. This is a standalone listen
Book 2, Cafe Au Lait -Cafe Au Lait by ML Hamilton is a wonderful cozy mystery that has some romance involved. I really enjoy the characters of Zion and Tate. I hadn't expected some of the twists in this book, and really enjoyed them. The imagery in the story is wonderful too! I can envision so much of what is going on. The performance by Kelley Hazen was spot on. She gives various characters distinguishable voices, so I know exactly who is speaking. She conveys the right emotions to fit the scene. This book is both a standalone listen and part of a series. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
Book 3, Expresso --ML Hamilton has done it again by writing another cozy mystery featuring characters that I love. Espresso continues the relationship of Zion and Tate, and has cameo appearances of other characters from previous books. This is both a standalone listen and another mystery in the series. I love how the author writes great imagery of the town of Sequoia, and adds humor and unexpected twists. Kelley Hazen does a fabulous job bringing the characters to life. She gives them distinguishable voices, so I know who is speaking. Her expressions are spot on! I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Book 4 - Cafe Macchiato --Cafe Macchiato by M.L. Hamilton is a delightful addition to the Zion Sawyer cozy mystery series. I love how there is such a great sense of small town community in Sequoia. Having characters from previous books by this author have cameo appearances only adds to the story. I love how Zion and Tate continue their relationship. The author keeps things clean, but one can use their imagination. The imagery in this book is so well done, I can visualize many details. Kelley Hazen is perfect in bringing the characters to life with her distinguished voices. The emotions she puts in her voice are spot on. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will most definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. I love the coffee kiosk in this story
Book 5, Americano --Americano by M.L. Hamilton is full of incredible imagery. The storyline is original, it has murder, mystery, humor, romance and some endearing characters. I love the nicknames of Lawman and Dream Girl for Tate and Zion. The author writes some great twists in the book. Kelley Hazen is perfect narrating this book. She brings the characters to life with her distinguishable voices for them. I can easily hear who is speaking, I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will most definitely listen to more books by the author and narrator. I loved it!

Disappointing Narration was hard to listen to.

I like mysteries and tried hard to enjoy this one.. The story line seemed slow and may have gotten better, however the narration was what really turned me off.

A well worthy series

I enjoyed every minute of this series. It begins with Zion’s birth mother being murdered; which brought her to this adorable quaint little town. Throughout this series new characters were introduced, murders were solved and Zion fell in love. I love Zion’s mother and her shenanigans always up to some new project. Zion’s father supporting her till he’s forced into retirement and not knowing what to do with himself he got a great her understanding of her Mother’s going from one thing to another till they settled on joining a gang. This series has a lot of comedic moments and the narrator does a great job bringing the characters to life.

Not sure if this will work

I’ve only finished the 1st book - Cappuccino - so don’t know if this will allow me to write a separate review after each book. I’ll know after the next one...

So, you get introduced to the characters because of the protagonist, Zion, finds out that her birth mother dies and has left her a house and a Coffee shop (with staff).

Those are in Sequoia, she lives in San Francisco working a job that is leading nowhere... then it transpired that her birth mother was murdered, the journey towards solving the case is neat and unusual.

For a Cozy Mystery, it has a decent plot and has decent dialogue, enough to make the desire to go into the next story enticing and inevitable.

Sequoia, small town, big heart.

Small town Sequoia is used to tourists: the quaintly named shops depend upon them for survival. But it is the people who live there permanently who make it special. Zion Sawyer came to Sequoia when the birth mother who had given her up for adoption when she was still a baby, left her a cottage and the cafe, the Caffeinator, in her will. Zion liked what she found, and stayed.

M.L.Hamilton's ongoing stories from Sequoia get better as the series continues, not so much for the murder mysteries themselves, but in reconnecting with the inhabitants, watching as they grow and interact together, characters who really seem to have lives of their own. It is possible to read each as a standalone story but much more enjoyable if taken in sequence. And this box set is the perfect way to do that.

The five books included are:
i). Cappuccino
ii). Cafe an Lait
iii) Espresso
iv) Caffe Macchiato
v) Americcano
(Separate reviews have been posted for each individual book).

Narrator Kelley Hazen gives each of the numerous characters extra personality and life by voicing each seperately: she is astonishingly good at this, drawing on a cornucopia of voices to give individually performed renderings for male as well as female protagonists. There is emotion and laughter in these books, just as there would be in real life - romance, too, and, of couse, a mystery to solve.
For a light, immersive and enjoyable read, recommended

love the stories and the reader

Just loved this book. I ended up wishing there were more. Kelly Hazens narration was brilliant, I felt like there were more people involved, but it was all her voice changing with each character. Well done!!
