Publisher's Summary

This is the seventh book in the best-selling Sandy Bay Cozy Mystery series.

Business is good, but the stress of fulfilling a new corporate order is almost driving Meghan Truman insane. She is, therefore, excited when handsome detective Jack Irvin proposes to take her to the movies. She never expected that a fun, carefree night at the Sandy Bay cinema would end with the tragic death of the movie theater manager.

Who would stand to gain from his demise?

As Meghan delves deeper into this murder investigation, she discovers that stress has a way of bringing out the worst in people. With the clock ticking to find the murderer, will she be prepared when a serendipitous act of kindness puts her squarely in the path of a killer on the loose?

If you want to enjoy a quick, lighthearted listen with an amateur female sleuth, mouth-watering culinary desserts, a gripping murder mystery, and a touch of romance, then you'll love Meghan Truman and all the quirky characters in Sandy Bay. No cliff-hanger, swearing, or graphic scenes!

Enjoyable read/listen

Gingerbread and Scary Endings (Sandy Bay Cozy Mystery Book 7), my eighth read from author Amber Crewes. Well-written & enjoyable. another cute, clean cozy mystery. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. I was impressed and enjoyed the vocal variety & inflections of narrator Elena Marino who has become the voice for Meghan Truman. I look forward to reading more in this series & from this author as I get them. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Another Hit for the Sandy Bay Cozy Mystery Series

A delightful read/listen. Short and sweet, the author focuses on personality and character interaction. She makes it a pleasure to get to know the people who make Sandy Bay their home. This is book 7 in the series, but is easy to read as a stand-alone.

Owning your own bakery is a full time job. Finally getting a day off to go on a date with her boyfriend, they decide to go to the movies. As the horror flick rolls, a murder is being committed. The town detective snoozes in his comfortable theater seat. His girlfriend tries to take in as many details as she can think of. The mystery begins.

Narrator Elena Morino did a great job with all of the townsfolk voices. The men did not come off squeaky or scratchy, not always an easy task for a female narrator. Although set around a murder, this is a fun, upbeat read.

Some superstitions are downright ridiculous!

I never see pensioners acting as nutty as they do in cosy mysteries. I've no idea where this originated from but it's very strange and gives them a bad reputation. This makes me so thankful that I've been blessed to be around pensioners who are very level-headed unless they are stricken with dementia. Aside from crazy old ladies, this story is mostly somber. The storyline is well written and thought out. The mystery is intriguing and keeps the reader fully engaged in trying to solve it. The narrator also keeps the story flowing smoothly. I really enjoyed it!
