what an engaging listen. Likeable characters, enough intrigue to keep you interested throughout the whole book. Clever, interesting, likeable - what else can I say, have a listen and enjoy this intelligent, not so cosy, murder mystery

The second book in the series and good threads from the first but you do not have to know the first as this could also be stand alone. Likeable characters. Probably comes under a cozy mystery but with a bit more bite. Enjoyable

My name is Becky. I arrived home to find my husband, Chris, stabbed to death and a gang of men ransacking our house. Turns out that Chris had something that belonged to them. And if I want to stay alive, I have to find it and return it. They’ve given me seven days. And a beating. There is nowhere to hide and no time left to look. So I will stand my ground as the deadline approaches. All I have is a head full of lies and a very bad plan. This is my story.

Another homicide has rocked the small town of Fallsburg, New York. In a cabin nestled deep in the woods, two male victims are discovered, both gunshot victims. One is deceased the other one is barely alive. But it is not the murder itself that has detectives Jean Whitley and her new partner Marty Keal frantic to find out the answers of what occurred in that cabin, it is the identities of the two small children also found at the scene.

Dr. Kelly Irving knew her husband, attorney Jack Harbaugh, was acting strangely but figured they’d get through it. When she backed out of her garage that morning, she thought her car hit a bump. Instead, its progress was stopped by the body of a man her husband recently represented. The dead man had been shot by her husband’s gun. Jack was a primary suspect. Kelly couldn’t decide if Jack was a murderer or marked as the next victim. They were forced to put their marital differences aside and concentrate on keeping Jack alive while discovering who was behind the whole thing.
