Publisher's Summary

When a crime-stopper senior citizen starts to act oddly, a new business sells fake products, and the New Year’s Eve fireworks display disappears, Mayor Cora Mae Bingham and the Spicetown Police Chief Conrad Harris have to get involved.

Cora keeps an eye on her quaint small town nestled in the Southern hills of Ohio. Although Spicetown is sprinkled with culinary street names, stores full of spices, and quaint lifelong citizens, out-of-towners can bring in a dicey element.

Very good

This was a very good cozy mystery. It has a great combination of suspense, mystery, and a little romance. The narrator does a wonderful job of voicing each character.

A delightful cozy mystery............

Welcome to Spicetown is a delightful cozy mystery about a small town mayer, Cora, her chief of police, Conrad, and a full cast of various quirky inhabitants of Spicetown. The mystery portion of the book involves several apparently unrelated incidents in and around Spicetown that Conrad begins investigating. Never one to take a back seat, Cora inserts herself into his investigations with some snooping around of her own. She is aided in this endeavor by her assistant Amanda, whose budding romance with a local farmer makes up a large portion of the book. With just the right touch of sweet and low drama for the cozy mystery genre, Welcome to Spicetown not only kept me so entertained that I listened in one sitting, it made me smile throughout with the eccentric and occasionally naive actions of the local residents. The friendship and cooperation between Cora and Conrad and Cora's nurturing relationship with Amanda were perhaps my favorite aspect of this highly readable story.

Nicole KandeLind's narration is fantastic. She has a lilting, upbeat voice that works well for all the characters from young to old, male to female in the story. Her delivery is flawless, and she differentiates between characters with great skill. I hope to see more books in this series written by Richey and narrated by Kandelind available on Audible soon.

Enjoy!

small-town, friendship *****

Small town southern Ohio is a lot like small town anywhere but with more nice folks than some. Everybody knows everyone else and gossip is a given, but here there is very little that's malicious. This is a comfortable story about some interesting mysteries but no murder of people or their character, and the characters you get to know are the kind of people you'd want for friends.
The audio is narrated by Nicole KandeLind who is well suited to the task.

Nice Cozy

Welcome to Spicetown is the first book in the Spicetown Mystery Series. This was an enjoyable story with fun, quirky characters in a small town setting. I look forward to the series continuing! The story was nicely read by the narrator. I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Shhhh

I started laughing when I realized I was shhh-ing an audio book. The narrator drives me crazy when doing some of the dialog. Cora, the Mayor being the worst. I talk that load to get my hard of hearing husband to hear me. It's not necessary when reading a book. She's load. Others aren't so bad. Just Cora and June. Please use your indoor voice.

Good Cozy Mystery, Great Narration

The story was easy to follow and had solid plot and cute idea for the town. I didn't connect with the characters as well as I usually would like to, and I felt like the writing jumped around too much. Would be a decent & clean afternoon listen. Surprisingly, for a cozy mystery, it does not include a murder.

I thought the narrator gave a great performance that matched the book well.
