Great book!

I was given an Audible copy of this book and am voluntarily writing a review.

This is my first experience with this author and with cozy mysteries. I am typically not a mystery reader, but I really liked listening to this book. The narrator did a great job in bringing the story to life. The story was engaging and kept me entertained throughout. I was surprised by the ending - didn't turn out at all like I thought. Kept me guessing all the way to the end. It was a short and entertaining story and I will be checking out the other books in the series soon!

Contemporary mystery

It strikes me that there doesn't seem to be a explanation for the stars that are given. So I thought I'd start giving my take on it.
1 horrible no redeeming qualities.
2 there are redeeming qualities.
3 good worth reading, or well written but not my cup of tea.
4 great but there's something off.
5 loved it.

This was my least favorite of this series so far. But it is still worth reading.
The narrator brings the story to life.
Reasons I enjoyed this audio book:
Great world building, Unpredictable, Easy-to-read.
Bookshelves/tags:
clean, contemporary, mystery, recorded, series.
This Audiobook was given to me for free at my request from the publisher, author or narrator and I provided this unbiased voluntary review.

Excellent Cozy Mystery

This is the second Hope Hadley short cozy mystery that I have listened to in the series and am finding the stories to be well written and enjoyable. The narrator is excellent and portrays Hope very well. The plot was well thought out and kept me guessing until the end. If you like short cozy mysteries, this is one of the best, and I will definitely read or listen to the rest of the series.

Hollywood Mystery

Hollywood Murder is a Fun 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. Can you solve the mystery?

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.

Friendship troubles

Murder of a Movie Producer has all the things I like in a mystery, intrigue, suspense, and betrayal. This is my second book in this series of short cozy mysteries and I am hooked. The narrator Stephanie Quinn did a marvelous job bringing the characters to life and making them believable. The author did a phenomenal job with the storyline and character development. I will admit it I am now a cozy mystery addict. I received this book at my request and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

Murder of a movie producer

This book has a good storyline! Easy to follow without too many characters to remember. I was surprised at the end though! Great writing. Meredith. And I love Stephanie Quinn’s reading ability. She has a smooth reading voice and is easy to listen to! Only one problem. All of this series is to short! This is a must read!

Great Clean Cozy Mystery

Stephanie Quinn doesva great job with the narration. She uses different sounds and draws your interest so you know who the characters are. The characters are believable and interesting. Thisvis the eighth in the series but it is great as a stand alone. It would be great for slumber parties or family time. Hope had moved to Californis to become an actress. She was a success but after years of doing a detective her show was canceled. She now is sn as amateur sleuth. Her friend is accused of murder. She now investigates with the help of her detective brother by a simple phone call. She is meeting resistance. After the phone call she feels she has enough new leads to sift through the twists and turns she has been meeting. You will keep guessing who did it till the end. Dies she solve this murder? I hope you enjoy this as much as we did.

Murder of a Movie Producer Hope Hadley Cozy Myste

Hope is on her way to Hollywood, California to visit her friend Sophie who moved there months before to try her luck at being an actress. Hope warned her that Hollywood did not take kindly to actresses over 40. She arrives just as her friend Sophie is arrested for murder. Now it's up to her to figure out if her friend did or did not do the crime before she does the time.
Narrator Stephanie Quinn is fantastic as she brings the characters to life in this story!!
