A dinner murder

I enjoyed this quick listen. This is book two in the series and you don't need to have listened to book one to enjoy but it might get a bit confusing at the start of the book with all the characters meeting up and having to use there acting names, so In some ways knowing the characters already did help. I like the characters and the unusual job of the main character, this book wasn't as bad as the first book but don't listen if you are hungry or on a diet. The mystery was good and did keep you guessing. I look forward to starting the next book to see if the love triangle gets anymore complicated.
Allie as a food critic for the newspaper is invited to the opening night of a murder mystery dinner, where the customers each get to play a part of a gangster or moll for the night. Every body takes part in the event and dresses up but somebody takes it to seriously and kills the owner. A real death was never meant to be part of the entertainment but Allie and her friends are the quickest to react when they notice something was wrong and they soon discover he was poisoned. They find out the bar way then one of there own gets sick. All the evidence points the police to one person but Allie doesn't believe he his capable of murder and sets about asking questions, well she has to find out information to write an article for the paper, so why not ask for there alibi's?
I like the narrator, she gives each of the characters there own unique voice so you have no problems following along with the story.

Great quick mystery!

I really enjoyed this story- I think the main character Ally is super likeable, and I thought the setting of the murder mystery dinner was really cool. I also really like the narrator- she sounds like a young hip food-blogger and I enjoy listening to her. I really like this series because it feels much fresher and more modern than most cozy mysteries- and this one definitely didn't disappoint- I'm looking forward to the next one!

Good Series

A different twists, when Allie uses her power in words to help solve a murder. As a reviewer she was invited to a party which murder was not on the menu. Good series, and quirky characters. A delight to listen to the narration. Given audio for my voluntary review and

A Choice Cocktail of Death

The new relationship in this series is a little weird. It feels uncomfortable and suspect, but maybe that is me. Some of the friendship/relationships seem like they are are superficial but end up producing more information that you would share with a casual friend - I am trying to not be spoilery. I guess what I am saying is that it isn't entirely plausible, but enjoyable.

This is the same narrator. I like her for this series. She sounds young, and nice exactly as the character is described.
