A Good Murder Mystery and Start of a Series

CONUNDRUM was a good murder mystery set in Cambridge where a twenty year reunion is about to take place. Iris is the architect who designed the house where the reception is to be held before the reunion and she's also one of the alumni. Her ex was planning to attend but turned up dead. This set off a chain of events including two more murders that make it look as if someone is setting Iris up.

When I first began this audiobook, I thought it had a strange, almost tense feel to it but I quickly found myself drawn into the characters and the story. Like the Riesling, it had a dry but sort of sweet flavor to it. I thought the idea of it being an architectural mystery was fresh and it was cohesive with the title.

I'd recommend giving this a listen. SUSAN CORY did a nice job with this book. I was very pleasantly surprised and the narrator was a bonus. I look forward to listening to more in the IRIS REID MYSTERIES.

LISA FLANAGAN did a terrific job reading this audiobook. I enjoyed her approach. Again, I compare it to the Riesling. She had wonderful voice inflections and made this a suspenseful listen with her narrative style. I'll look for more audiobooks read by her.
