Publisher's Summary

Sabrina Daley is still haunted by the mysterious disappearance of her sister 10 years before. Even though the case went cold long ago, she keeps holding out hope that one day she will discover what happened to her sister. Sabrina's life is turned upside down again when she discovers her friend's dead body in the alley way behind her family's coffee shop. If that isn't bad enough, after a week of investigating, the local police appear to be stumped. Terrified about a second case going cold in town, Sabrina decides to take matters into her own hands. She sets out on her own, determined not to give up until she has brought her friend's killer to justice.

    "Fun cozy mystery"

    A great little cozy mystery (clean, no swear words or gore) to listen to on long drives. The start of a fun series. I hope there will be more books about these characters.

    Story
    "Okay cozy, not great audiobook though."

    I did struggle to finish this. If it was a book, I probably would have flown through it. It bothers me when certain liberties are taken. In this case, a detective engaging his girlfriend ( not a detective) to help him solve a mystery.
    The narrator didn't do it for me.. Her voice didn't excite me, or make me rush out to find anther book she narrates.

    "Cozy mystery with a little sass"

    I received a copy from Authors XP web site and the author. It was a copy from Audible. What follows is an honest review of the Audio Book.

    The audio books take a little longer for me to 'read' shall we say. I have a half hour ride to and from work. In the morning I will listen to my Bible reading plan for the day. In the evening I will listen to what ever book I have in the cue at the moment.

    Ms. Potts has started an interesting series here. A barista who likes to solve crimes who happens to have a detective boyfriend. Most of the cozy mysteries I have read follow the same pattern. Heroine, with boyfriend, murder to someone they know, they have to solve. It is a predictable pattern, but it works. If it did not we would not have so many cozy authors out there.

    While the pattern is predictable, the story does not have to be. It also has to let you know the clues so you can solve it yourself. It is OK to throw in red herrings but to pull something out of the hat at the last minute is not good. This was a problem here. While the clue that helped solve it was there right from the start of the murder, there was some off camera work that really would have been done by the police already. For that reason I dropped 1/2 star.

    The other 1/2 star was because of the various sub stories that were put in the book. They did nothing to advance the story. I feel that they may be used in future Daley Buzz stories in the series. For this story they did nothing to contribute that I could tell.

    The reading was pretty good. I did feel once or twice the woman reading it lost track of the character voice she was reading it in, seemingly with the men characters. This really did not distract from the story line.

    Being a cozy it is clean. No violence is depicted. So it would be OK for all to read. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a light mystery to read with a little bit of humor thrown in.

    Story
    "good read"

    this book was very interesting. it took a different direction than I first thought it would. the way it started out, I thought it was going to be about finding her sister and maybe her sisters killer. instead it focused on patience and determination. it was very intriguing how she got the suspects to talk to her and eventually figured out who the killer was.

    Story
    "Opening to a new cozy mystery series "

    I’m not really able to review the entire story as I wasn’t able to finish it (which actually really bothered me). I found the narration so off-putting that I couldn’t continue listening. If I’d been reading I probably would have finished. What I caught of the story line and characters was interesting, with a complicated backstory.

    "Well written and amusing cozy mystery"

    I really liked the story. Sabrina is a fun and interesting character, and it's easy to understand her overwhelming need to get the murder solved; our hearts go to her and her pain from the very beginning. I'm looking forward to getting to know her better, along with the rest of the cast.

    I also really, really want to know what happened to her sister.

    Lainie Pahos does a wonderful work with the reading and enhances its enjoyment.
