Summary

An iron skillet, the town piranha, and liquid black gold all swirl in this new mystery series. When Lily and her two aunts discover the dead body of the most vile and hated woman in the town of Sweet Home inside their coffee shop, the Coffee Cabana, tongues wag at who the culprit might be. With a list of suspects a mile long, it could be almost anyone who Fannie Diddlemier wronged in her weekly rag. Find out how Lily and her aunts figure out the perp while downing extraneous amounts of hazelnut and mocha java.

Murder with a side of Mystery

This is a cute but short cozy mystery. The characters are a bit quirky but the story is good. Angel Clark does it again with her fantastic voices that make the story believable. I received this book for free and this is my honest unbiased review.

So many suspects!

Creamed at the Coffee Cabana, first book in a series by Constance Barker, was incredibly enjoyable to listen to. I truly never considered the guilty person as a suspect. What an intriguing surprise!
The narrator was excellent! I was easily transported into the town, alongside the characters.
Ms. Barker has crafted a tricky mystery, with relatable characters, and a lovely small town setting. I'm so glad I chose this book, and I'll be moving right on to book two.

It was alright

I enjoyed Creamed at the Coffee Cabana more than I thought I would, considering that I received the code as a freebie.

Nevertheless, I only rated the book a two because the mystery felt rushed, and the story was too short for any proper development of the plot and characters.

As for the narration, Angel Clark did a decent job telling the story; there was enough differentiation in character voices for me to tell who was speaking.

Overall, it was difficult for me to write a review for this book because it was so shot. However, It was decent for something quick to listen to, and I will probably listen to other books in the series.

Creamed at the Coffee Cabana

Creamed at the Coffee Cabana is the first in a series of (very) short cozy mysteries staring Lily and her two aunts. It is tough to pull off a good mystery in under 2 hours, but I think Constance Barker succeeded. This first mystery is the death of a mean "girl". There isn't a whole lot of time for story development and intrigue, but I think this was well done. The short time allowed me to finish a book in one morning between my commit and lunch. Sometime is it nice to have a shorter listen!

I would recommend this book to cozy mystery fans.

Excellent

Delightful, funny, plot is good, love her description of the characters. Keeping in mind of the Coffee Cabana, as one enters " sweets with the sweets. Didn't refers to the two aunts, they come in one flavor, crusty. Good read for all to enjoy.
Good narration, given audio for my voluntary review and my voluntary review

meh

Pretty formulaic and quite short. Ending seemed abrupt, like a conversation had been cut short.

Small Town Charm With a Mystery Thrown In

Would you listen to Creamed at the Coffee Cabana: A Cozy Mystery again? Why?

I actually did listen to this story twice because it was short and I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything. It is so delightful.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well the two aunts, Essie and Hilda were so funny. They reminded me of some of my aunts that have passed on and it made me happy to remember them.

Which scene was your favorite?

I thought the scene where the girl describes how she lost her button. I don't want to give the story away.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did not have an extreme reaction but I did have a very favorable reaction to all of the characters and their little town.

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to listening to more of these books and hearing Angel Clark bring me with her into the story. Her voice is so great !!
