Cozy Mystery

This is the 9th book in the Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series but it stands alone. A beloved retired school teacher is murdered. Her 30 dogs are sent to the financially struggling, filled to capacity animal shelter. Who would want to kill her and what was she doing with all those dogs! Mike is the sheriff but his wife Kelly, who owns the coffee house, wants to solve the case. The story was entertaining and the characters interesting. I enjoyed solving the case along with Mike and Kelly! I would like to listen to the whole series now!
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Cozy Mystery!

This is part of the Downward Dog Mysteries series. This book stands alone although mention is made of the previous stories which make me want to listen to the whole series.

There is a fundraiser for an animal shelter during which yoga instructor Kate Davidson volunteers to give a dog yoga class. The class goes horribly wrong. An animal rights protest comes on the scene and shuts down the event. One of the activists is found murdered. Kate's investigation uncovers family drama and secrets, which also leads to Kate's own personal growth. The characters are likable, fun, and quirky. The animals and their people are adorable. I very much enjoyed this book!

I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Fun Cozy Mystery!

This is the 13th book in the Aggie Underhill Mystery series but it stands alone. It's St Paddy's Day and Aggie, Betty, and Roger go to an Irish pub to celebrate. Betty has eyes for a man at the bar and sends her phone number over to him via Aggie. Aggie accidentally gives her number to the wrong man - who suddenly drops dead! Is this death suspicious? Aggie is on the case! This is the first book of this series I have listened to and now I want to read the rest of the series. Fun cozy short story with quirky characters.

Affirmation workbook

This is a book of affirmations. Affirmations are positive self talk to replace negative thoughts you may have. This book recommends each day you listen to and repeat each daily affirmation throughout a day.

Each affirmation is formatted in first "I am success because...." and then "you are success because..."

The book continues with "my goals today to continue succeeding are" At this point they ask you to pause to write down your dreams, you goals, and your notes.

When the next affirmation starts you are to pause the book and pick it up tomorrow.

The affirmations can be a little lengthy to repeat after the narrator so an attached affirmation PDF would be helpful. Some of the affirmations I personally found helpful and relate-able and some, not so much. I was gifted a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review,

Great Self Help Book

There is a lot of information in this book. You will need to listen to it many times. The author covers many topics, meditation, nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, etc. I listened one time through and am going to restart it to concentrate on one objective at a time. I look forward to my more positive journey! I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Classic Children's Book!

A boy makes friends with the poetry-loving dragon living in the Downs above his home. The townsfolk don't want him and send for St. George to slay the dragon. The boy comes up with a plan to save the dragon and get the townsfolk to accept him. They stage a battle and get St. George in on the plan. After the successful staged fight, the dragon said he may like to settle down in the village. Then they all happily went to the banquet.

This is a lovely rendition of the classic book. It is beautifully narrated by Heidi Gregory, who adds to any story!

Great Children's Classic

This is the original brothers Grim's story not cleaned up. It may be frightening for the young ones. Adults however who remember this original story will fully appreciate it. It is a bit gruesome but you can't help admiring the children's tenacity and ability to get out of hopeless situations.

The synopsis: The woodcutters family had no food so the wife told the father that they must bring Hansel and Gretel to the forest. This way they will be lost and they wouldn't be responsible for feeding them, The lost children eventually found a house in the woods. A wicked witch disguised as an old woman lived there. She would lure in children and then cooked them for a feast. The children were captured. While Gretel was made to help the witch cook Hansel, she tricked the witch and pushed her in the stove where she was burnt to death.

The four stories include Quack a Doodle Oink, The Cat that Hated Cuddles, Morton's Milkshake, and The Naughtiest Teacher. The last story was my favorite. They are quick stories of a few minutes each. Young ones should enjoy these. I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Fun Cozy Mystery!

This was a great cozy mystery. An unexpected inheritance causes detective Milo to co-own a mansion along with the wealthy owner's son, Sutherland. Milo quickly goes from debt to wealth. As part of his new status, Milo accompanies Sutherland to a wealthy neighbor's New Years Eve party. The nasty husband of the host is murdered and Milo and the police line up the suspects. Everyone seems to have a motive. This story was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it. Hopefully, this will be the first story in a series!
