Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling authors Gin Jones and Elizabeth Ashby comes a brand new mystery....

It's Independence Day weekend, and Maria Dolores, the descendant of Danger Cove's first lighthouse keeper, is the new manager of the Lighthouse Farmers' Market. While she may be a bit uncertain about her career change - trading financial planning for flower stalls and farm-fresh produce - she's still determined to get the market into shape and onto one of the region's "best-of" lists.

From the very beginning, though, events conspire against her. Her mentor and attractive local farmer, Merle Curtis, fails to show up to introduce her to the vendors, the stalls are all in the wrong place, and an earthquake shakes up everyone in the market! In its aftermath, Maria realizes the flower vendor is more than shaken up.... She's dead.

Maria suddenly finds herself embroiled in a small-town mystery that's got everyone on edge. Will it all lead to the end of Maria's new career? Or worse yet...her life?

Robotic performance, good story

I have read and listened to several of the Danger Cove series. I enjoyed the story itself, the first of the Farmers Market set that I have heard. The cast of characters each had their own distinct personalities to contribute to the market. The way it was written, I thought other characters could have been the murderer. Unfortunately, this performance was horrible. I stuck through listening but at times almost gave up. It sounded like she was a monotone robot, with very little differentiation between voices. In the end, I would have much rather read the book than listened to it.

Could not listen to this book just being read aloud. I liked all the books in this series but couldn't pay attention to this one.

To Market, To Market

A new start as the Farmer’s Market manager is rocky when a vendor is murdered. And a vendor is put in time out for his anger issues and the vendor who wants her job tries sabotage. Now a second murder and the stress is getting high. Great performance and story. Recommend.

A growing murder

This was a fun mystery. I have listened to a few books in the danger cove series, which are written by a number of different authors and it was fun,with a number of the characters and even an author having a cameo roll in this book. I liked the characters, especially the special needs boy Gary. The mystery was interesting and there was a number of suspects to keeps you guessing. This isn't the best book in the series and I think In some ways it would have done better with a different narrator but it certainly won't put me off listening to others in the series.
Maria has given up her high powered job for something a lot more simple, the position of running the lighthouse farmers market. Where she thought the hardest part of her job was making sure the vegetables was all locally grown or reuniting lost children with there parents. This doesn't prove to be the case when her friend fails to show.up and introduce her to all the vendors, her assistance has smelt down and refuses to get up off the floor, two of the vendor's try chasing or scaring customers away and an earthquake hit. But all that pales in comparison when the build of another vendor is found underneath the sound equipment. Did Maria do the right thing returning to her grandmother's home town? Or was her mother right? Maria starts to investigate because her new assistant found the body and she fears the police won't look any further than him. It seems to he dead lady had a checked past and wasn't who everybody thought she was, so could her past have finally caught with her?
I have heard this narrator before playing the part of a much older character where she did well but not sure how old this character was meant to be but for some reason she sounded to old for the part. Also the voices sounded a bit monotonous and you could miss chunks of the story if your mind wandered.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request from audiobooksunleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

Terrible Narrator!

Love the Danger Cove Mysteries but the Narrator of this book was so computer sounding I couldn't listen to it. I read the ebook instead! Will continue with the other books in the series thought as long as this narrator isn't reading it.
