Great for younger readers!

Book 2 of the Daley Buzz Mystery series. I have listened to this as a standalone after receiving the audiobook free of charge from the author in return for an honest review.

Sabrina’s psychic Miss Terri reveals some information about her missing sister. When Sabrina returns to find out more she finds out that Terri has been killed. She then teams up with her detective boyfriend to solve this mystery.

THE GOOD STUFF
This was a simple and light read. Nice to listen to when I wasn’t really paying too much attention.

It would be great for a young audience who are interested in mystery. It has a ‘Scooby Doo’ kind of feel to it.

The narrator was okay, (other than the fact she constantly said ‘Caramel’ wrong…) she kept the pace of the story quite well and really got into the story.

I like that this book series seems to have a key location where the characters meet up, the Daley Buzz coffee shop.

NOT MY CUP OF TEA
Sabrina wasn’t really a character that I related to. She annoyed me a little bit at times. Her boyfriend was quite likable but the only way that we knew he was her boyfriend was because she would constantly refer to him as such. The two didn’t actually seem to have much chemistry other than a detective/partner relationship.

Sabrina also had this incredible ability to tell people’s exact heights and ages when she met them. I found there to be a few too many characters that just seemed to appear and the characters knew about them a little more than I did, I don’t know if maybe they were introduced in the book before but I did find myself getting a little muddled with who she was actually talking to and why at times.

OVERALL RATING
This book was quite a nice read, it did drag on a little at times because the main character did get a little boring. I would highly recommend this for young teens who are just starting to get into mystery fiction however.

A gentle cosy mystery

This is a gently paced cosy mystery. The death of a psychic leads to lots of suspects for Sabrina to investigate. It was quite a good mystery as I had no idea who the killer was until it was revealed near the end.
I like that there is a secondary mystery running through this series i.e. the disappearance of Sabrina's sister. This aspect has me completely hooked and I can't wait to read more to find out what happened to her.
I would like a little bit of romance in Sabrina's life. She does have a boyfriend but his character isn't developed and their relationship is not a source of drama or a plot point. He's kind of like a human equivalent of Google. She just asks him questions about the case and he answers her. I would like to see more happening between the pair.

This was a good book to read on a quiet day to myself and I enjoyed listening to the narration.

I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

A goof mystery for an afternoon read

I really enjoyed this book. It has murder, mystery, and psychic. Sabrina's sister was missing not knowing if she was alive or dead. Sabrina is urged by Shannon to visit a psychic called Miss Terry. Once there Miss Terry tells her she will find her sister. Sabrina wanted to know more so decided to go back to Miss Terry only to find the dead lifeless body of Miss Terry. Needless to say she ends up being a suspect and must find the real killer.

The narrator did a good job bringing the characters to life and pulling the reader/listener into the story.

Let's find the killer.

Another great book in this series. This was even better than the first book. I liked the way David and Sabrina made a great team looking for the murderer. It all started with Shannon talking Sabrina into going to see a psychic named Miss Terry. She told her Jessica would be found but she did not know if she was alive or dead or where. After Sabrina leaves and goes home she feels she needs to speak to Miss Terry again and try to see if she has more info about her sister even though she had said she did not. So she goes in the night to see her and Terry dead. Now she looks like a suspect. So now her and David work together to find the killer. I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

Caramels with a Side of Murder

Sabrina;s friend takes her to a local psychic. There she is told that her sister will be found. This rattles Sabrina but no matter what she offers the psychic can't tell any more. The next day she goes back only to discover the body of the psychic. She also sees a woman leaving quickly. She calls her boyfriend David, a detective, who arrives. She tells him everything and even shows him a picture of the woman she saw leaving the area. Now the hunt is on for the one who murdered the only person who could have helped her learn more about her sister's disappearance.
Lisa Beacom is an excellent narrator who brings each character to life.
Fantastic audio and story

Love the Cast of Characters

This is the first book in the Daley Buzz Series. This mystery is filled with humor, crazy characters and a little romance. The reader is excellent and maintains the witty repartee throughout the story. Come to Daley Buzz or some good coffee, crazy characters and a good mystery.

A yummy Carmel Cozy Murder is a Fun snackable cozy Mystery. I can not wait to continue to dig into this fun series. The Narration was amazing as well and did a great job with all of the characters. So go ahead and dive into this series. Have snacks ready as you read as you will get hungry.

At the time of this review, Audible did not have chapter titles for this title.

This title was provided free for review, however, this review is my honest thoughts and opinions.
