Summary

For private investigator Melody Clue, reuniting long-lost relatives is almost always a heartwarming experience. 

Her latest case is a little different, though. 

When she is hired to track down a client's birth mother, the case takes a wild twist on her. 

At that point, she can't help but wonder, how will the investigation end?

Donuts, Death, and Dread

Adoption is always hard on both the parents and the children and this case is just the same. Melody solves this one with ease with her skills she has in finding people.

A Great Cozy Mystery

This is another great read of Meredith Potts. You have a clean storyline with believable and likeable characters. Melody Clue is PI who is hired to find a birth mother and you have to read to see how it goes. These stories are great for your teenagers and a great cozy mystery for light reading. I love Meredith 's book.

A well-written short read from a very good author

Donuts, Death, and Dread (Melody Clue), My seventy-second short read/listen from prolific author Meredith Potts, Well-written & enjoyable, another cute, clean cozy mystery. “I received a free Audible copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review." The gifting of this book did not affect my opinion of it. I was impressed and enjoyed the vocal variety & inflections of narrator Stephanie Quinn. I look forward to reading more in this series & from this author. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Great Read

Donuts, Death, and Dread was another good read by Meredith Potts. Melody Clue is looking for a heartwarming case as a private investigator. Unfortunately her latest case is not a heartwarming one. She is hired to track down a client’s birth mother. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read more by Meredith Potts.

Meredith makes you think!

This story was not your normal Meredith Post mystery! It was thought provoking though and makes you think how you would deal with the problem . I didn’t agree with the way it ended, but we all do things differently. The storyline was good and flowed well. Stephanie Quinn was great in her usual narrative!

Donuts, Death & Dread

A really heart rending short story, so many things in life are non explainable and so difficult to accept. The narration was good.

Cute & Good Narration

Melody hasn’t had the success lately of finding a lost mother for a client With a donut to eat that does help. Great Narration makes the story and characters come alive. given audio for my voluntary review
