Summary

There's nothing like the Stoneybrook farmers market in summer. Fresh flowers, organic veggies, delicious jams...and a dead body. When an outsider turns up murdered, all of the evidence points to his rival, Stoneybrook's beloved florist. 

Unable to believe a pillar of their community could be guilty of such a heinous crime, Hadley dives head-first into the investigation. Sure, she's busy looking for a new house, running her business, and dealing with her ex - who's back in town - but Hadley is determined to find the truth before the wrong man goes to jail.

A fresh mystery

I enjoyed this book and can't wait to start book three. What I like is the characters and the way that they play off of each other, they all have a special bond and this comes through nicely in the story. The mystery was good and I liked all the clues that were dropped, I nearly had it all worked out and thought the murder although not unique was very clever and well thought out.
Stoneybrook farmers market is looking to the future and in doing so has allowed a seller from a rival town to sell his flowers there for the first time. Before the vendors have even unpacked there vans of jams, art, pottery and even flowers he is found dead inside his own van. Hadley doesn't believe anyone in her town could possible be the killer so goes undercoverwith her best friend Suze in the next village with the perfect cover of looking for a new home. Can the pair find a killer or a new home? With bees proving to be the killer the pair will have to stick together if they don't want to get stung. Back in there home town things are getting complicated with all the evidence pointing to there florist and friend. Hadley's own brother might not have any choice but to arrest him. Hadley's ex husband is also back and stirring up trouble and starting fights. This is one fight that might just have a sting in its tail.
I liked the narrator and thought she did a good job of bringing the characters to life with very unique voices.

A definite must buy series.

After listening to the first two books in this series I am entirely addicted and can't wait for books 3 and 4 to become available on Audible.
The mystery was was well written and had me guessing. I really love the slow burn romance that runs through the series. Luke is a charming character and I love seeing the little glimpses into the bond he and Hadley had as childhood friends. It's makes for a lovely, feel good read.

The narration is excellent and I would buy more books performed by Jennifer Jill Araya.

I voluntarily reviewed an advance audio copy.

Even Better Than the First Story

I really enjoyed the first Stoneybook mystery so much that I immediately started listening to A Fresh Kill, which is the second mystery in the series.

I thought I had this mystery figured out from the very beginning. I was so close but did not have it. It was very well written. I thought the character building was great. It built well on the first book. Suze (Hadley's best friend) is secretly dating Hadley's twin brother. Luke and Hadley start to have more interactions. The real estate lady who seems more obsessed with playing matchmaker then selling houses is hilarious. Hadley gets her dream home. Everything about this story is so sweet, and I just loved that I literally thought I had the killer correct until the last few sentences. Scott throws in a very slight but great twist at the end. I really cannot wait to listen to the third book!

Jennifer Jill Araya is an amazing narrator. She pegs these characters so well with her voices and really brings them to life. I feel like I am smack dab in the middle of Stoneybrook.

I received this audiobook at my request, and I have voluntarily left this honest review.

A Sticky Sequel

This sequel was better than the first book! I loved seeing the trio solve a new murder and thought the crime itself was pretty unique. I enjoyed learning more about Stoneybrook’s rival town and the people inside of it. Once again, I really enjoyed the addition of Marisa McClellan’s recipes at the end of the book!
Jennifer did another amazing performance. She had my attention throughout the whole story and brought every character to life!

Awesome Next in the Series!

This is yet another really great cozy mystery from Eryn Scott. You don't have to listen to the first book to enjoy this one but it'll add depth to this story. I loved the twists and turns, the suspense and the humor. Once again this is a well written story with characters you can't help but love. I have fallen for Stoney Brooks! I can't wait until the next in this series! The narration is once again spot on! Jennifer Jill Araya has become one of my favorite narrators. She really knows how to bring each character to life and make the listener feel as if they are there. It's a wonderful combination that I hope continues. I will recommend this book as well to my friends. Well worth your time!

Loved it

This is the second book i have read in this series. I really love the characters and the story lines. This t ime the murder is a rival flower shop owner who dies at the Saturday market sale. He is found dead in his van by Hadley of course. Cause of death? Honey bees. Now it is up to Hadley to help her brother prove it was murder and find the killer. This book is very entertaining and never a dull moment. The narrator does a wonderful job with the characters. I look forward to more in this series. I was gifted this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review at my request.

Another great listen

Audio Review:

I loved this book from start to finish. It is a cozy mystery and one that I found thoroughly entertaining.

The narrator did a fabulous job and certainly kept me entertained. This was a a book filled with secrets and lies. The intrigue and suspense kept me on the edge of my seat as I listened to this story.

There are many twists, turns and surprises in A Fresh Kill as Hadley and her band of friends follow the clues and I have to say that I was taken by surprise on a couple of occasions. I cannot wait for more in this series.

Book 2 even better

I was really impressed with this story. I fell in love with the characters from the first book; so delighted in their return. This author and narrator pair well together. I love small town cozy mysteries since I grew up with small town life so this series helps me get back to my roots.
