Publisher's Summary

Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht and she's not afraid to use it!
After several months of cruising Mexico's hauntingly beautiful Sea of Cortez, Hetta's in Puerto Escondido, a place once described by author John Steinbeck as "a magic harbor". Anchored out, swaying on the hook at the whim of breeze and tide, surrounded by magnificent views and turquoise water can be magical. Stuck at anchor alone? Not so much.
So when her best friend, Jan, gets them an invite to a party at a nearby luxury resort hosted by a Japanese businessman - all expenses paid - Hetta figures, why not? Why turn down an evening of free food and booze? And besides, what could possibly go wrong?
With Hetta involved? Plenty.
Not only are she and Jan soon up to their necks in hot sake, a succession of unsavory intruders sends Hetta scurrying for a safe harbor, but not before she reaches the conclusion that some folks just need killin'.

I love Hetta Coffe

Would you listen to Just Needs Killin' again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to it again. The story is a great continuation of the Hetta Coffee series. It's lighthearted and fun.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoy getting to know the characters. I also love learning about the Sea of Cortez and its history.

What three words best describe Stevie Puckett’s voice?


Who was the most memorable character of Just Needs Killin' and why?

Definitely Hetta. The other characters are always peripheral to her. without Hetta there would be no story.

Any additional comments?

Stevie Puckett's voicing of Jan is too shrill and hard to listen to. Otherwise she does a good performance of the book.

Jan needs killing

Jan with her voice really got on my nerves but I listened to the end. Hetta and po thing make the story worth listening to. With all the characters from Japan to Mexico I don't know how anyone could keep up. Po-thing awesome diving dog. Not a suspense novel but defiantly comedy.
I received this free for an honest review from the author or narrator.
