Fun Listen

It’s so nice to be able to listen a book and not worry who might overhear it. So many books these days are full of sex and language. I enjoy knowing that I can pick up Grandkids and still listen. This one will keep you guessing!

Clever cozy mystery

Clean, sweet (lots of king cake), charming cozy mystery. Appreciated the capabilities of the protagonist. She did have help from a dog once, but also was able to handle matters on her own. Thanks to the author for providing a copy for my voluntary review of this delightfully pleasant story.

ENJOYABLE

King Cake and Grave Mistakes (Sandy Bay Cozy Mystery Book 11), my 11th read from author Amber Crewes. Well-written & enjoyable. another cute, clean cozy mystery. At 3-hours 15-minutes, longer than the previous books in the series. I really enjoy the development of the supporting characters over the course of the series. 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.

King Cake Leads To Murder

After a spa day one woman ends up dead. Was it murder or a mugging gone wrong? Between bites of king cake the murder is solved. This cozy mystery has no swearing or sex, hinted at or explicit. Peopled with realistic characters that can be swayed by money and status. I was gifted this from the author.
