Just gets better and better

I loved this book. I really like the group of characters, they are so much fun and being so down to earth and likeable they feel like old family friends but I think it was the mystery that really hooked me in with all the twists the plot took. I kind of guessed who the killer was but was by no means certain I was right.
You can listen to the book as a standalone but there is a couple of side plots that continue on from previous books, so you might find it more helpful to start at book one and work your way through the series. Also the author doesn't leave it on a cliff hanger as such because the mystery does get solved but she does set up the next book with a teaser that will have you eagerly awaiting for the next book to see what happens.
Emily is hosting a book signing at her friend Coralee's inn for her best selling book surrounded by friends and family and the last thing she was expecting was it to end in tragedy. A rich business woman who is moving to the area announces that she has changed her mind and instead of build homes for veterans liked she planned she is going to build half way homes to help people like Emily's sister that need help to live on there own in the community. On the way home her car ends up in the lake. The land deal proved to be controversial but could she have been killed over the deal? The previous owner wanted the land she stolen from him back, the neighbours wanted to buy the land so nobody could live there. Coralee as the named executor of the will is not sure what to do with the property or even who's it is because the murdered woman's granddaughter has gone missing Andy's has no way to find her. Emily and Henry can't help but feel in to help Coralee. At the same time Maddy there adopted daughter gets some worrying news that her father has been released from jail early and is heading to Sugarbury Falls. Can they solve the murder and keep there daughter safe from a mad man?
I liked the narrator. She has a pleasant voice and used it well to bring the story to life. I hope to hear her again.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

OMG they can’t even go to the book release without

When Emily and Henry go to a book release at a B&B of their friend Ruth oh you know it’s inevitable someone will get murdered Ian in this case it is Ruth‘s friend. This winds up being one of the craziest mysteries there is an angry neighbors The previous owner of our property wants it back, the person who inherited it is missing and there’s also an imposter. Like most of the Sugar Berry Falls mysteries they are not short on suspects. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as this is my favorite mystery Siri’s unlock Diane Weiner‘s sense of humor and I am always amazed at her imagination. Not to mention the narrator who did a wonderful job. If you love mysteries then you’ll love this book. I guess it would fall under cozy mysteries but it’s a cozy mystery with an IQ and I highly recommend it!
