Summary

Volume one of the Lake Garda Mysteries. 

The Lost Lady of Limone tells of a modern-day amateur detective who solves a difficult case in Italy. Set in the beautiful Lake Garda town of Limone, our unlikely heroine is a 19-year-old girl. She does not get everything right at first but achieves her goal in the end. 

Splashings of humour abound, and romance bubbles in the air.

Short but full bodied

This book might be short and I admit I don't usually go for short books not even if free as you usually are just getting to know the characters and then book is finished ( unless of course its a short story that is linked to a book series or some kind of factual book but never fiction ) but never a first book in a series of short books. A look through my rather extensive Audible library would confirm this.

I was offered this for free and the synopsis of the story intrigued me as I could not see how an author could flesh out all hinted at in such a short time so I accepted the offer. and am I glad I did - the author did exactly as promised and you have a full and rich mystery with lots of details in just over 2hrs of book.

It is so well written, no waffling or wasting words on graphic descriptions of things that we as readers can find out elsewhere but detail enough for the story.

I am writing this review after I have listened to book one and book two as I did not want to praise to the skies and tempt you t and so like me you become hooked and the author doesn't live up to book one in the second book - well they do.

I was very lucky and I have been given a few books in this series for free to review and am listening to book three as I type this - I am listening on an Alexa device and each title is a tongue twister so takes a few goes to make the A.I understand the name of the book, good learning for it.

I will happily spend my credits on the books in the series I do not have as for all they are short they are great with everything you want in a mystery novel and perfect if you want to listen to a complete book in a few hours and not feel short-changed on the world the story is set in.

The narrator Claire Nicols voice is just perfect as are her accents - the stories are set in Italy. She has a lovely smooth voice that you can listen to forever.

So should you use a credit to buy this - for me its a yes and I hope if you do you will enjoy it as much as I did........right off to review book two

Enjoyable

This is the first book I've listened to by this author. I really enjoyed it! The narrator did a wonderful job also. I look forward to listening to the other books in this series.

Likeable MC

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

I was excited about this book based on the blurb - it's a travelogue through Italy wrapped up in a cozy. Unfortunately, the mystery does not occur until the last 1/3 of the book, with the rest of the book being the MC trying to convince everyone there is a mystery and for the police to be called to wrap everything up. I did like the main character enough that I will look at the next book in the series.

The Lost Lady of Limone

I enjoyed this cozy mystery set in Italy. The main character, Kim, was obviously young and inexperienced, but that just added to the coziness. I love how she didn’t give up.

This was my first book written by KT Ashbourne and narrated by Claire Nicholls. I’m looking forward to seeing how this series progresses.

The lost lady of limone

I found this book to be a strange one. I actually like the main character because she is different to what authors usually a characterize character. She acts like a teen and is immature at times.
There was a scene in the book that I felt it did not need to be there at all. It had me confused. A couple had sex (we don't see it but they do make noises) in the copier room and yet they knew someone was outside waiting to be seen by the detective. I cannot for the life of me understand what the point of that scene is.
As for the mystery, well it is not a mystery since we are told who did it.
I have mixed feeling about this one but I will give the second one a go.

Enjoyable Mystery, a treat to listen to!

I enjoyed this cozy mystery set against a luscious Italian backdrop! The mystery creeps up on you against the charm of the setting, getting to know the characters, and the splashes of humor entwined in the storytelling, which all add up to an enjoyable mystery well worth your time.

I would be remiss if I did not say, BEWARE, Audiobook Buyer! — the first time I settled down to listen to this book I dozed off to sleep! The narrator, Claire Nicholls, has a lovely, calming, lilting voice that’s a perfect match for the story. I gave it a thorough re-listen when I was more awake (to be fair, the first time I started listening was at the end of a long day), and was very glad I did — It’s a gem of an audiobook and I really enjoyed the story and the way the narrator voiced all of the characters.

Note: I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Fun with the tour guide!

Italy, tourist-town, amateur-sleuth, cosy-mystery, situational-humor, verbal-humor

Too much fun! Kim is a young woman who has the same last name as the owner of the tour agency she has come to work for in Italy despite not speaking the language. Taking advantage of a misunderstanding, she passes for the owner's daughter as her own father does indeed have his own small business back in England. As tour guide to oldsters, she embellishes the tours with rather fanciful tales of the sights and does get into some minor trouble. Then, she notices that one of the couples has made a significant change. The wife is wearing the same bright yellow garments but is younger and taller! Let the sleuthing begin!
Claire Nicholls is great as the perky teen and the other characters as well.

Not my cup of tea

The Lost Lady of Limone
: KT Ashbourne

I've tried listening to this twice now, and unfortunatly it did not hold my attention. It maybe that I'm just not in the right mindset for it. The story line seems interesting. Maybe on another day I might enjoy it more.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Claire Nicholls has a lovely voice.
