Publisher's Summary

If you enjoy suspense, romance, humor, exotic locations, and intriguing mystery, then follow amateur sleuth Sarah Woods on an exciting ride with three different adventures in this audio collection. This series is intended for mature audiences and may contain objectionable behavior.
An Appointment with Murder
The first book in the series introduces you to massage therapist, Sarah Woods. While working late one evening at her office, Sarah finds her assistant has been strangled in the short time she was in the back with a client. Who would have done such a horrible thing? Was it a random killing or someone she knew? Although the police are investigating, Sarah can't seem to stay out of it and embarks on a journey to find the killer.
An Act of Deceit
Sarah Woods adventures continue in this book when she decides to work for Carter, the unorthodox private eye from Boston. Sarah must go way beyond her comfort zone as the pair find creative ways to expose a cheating husband, Marty Quinn. When Marty ends up dead, the assignment takes a whole new twist. This is a fast paced, fun mystery listen. A great blend of witty dialogue, suspense, and enough adult humor to keep it interesting.
An Island of Illusions
Sara and her husband are off to Hawaii to enjoy a much needed vacation, but when the PI she's worked for in the past shows up, she realizes it's a set up and he needs her help in finding a missing child. The suspense builds when Max, a security expert who Sarah holds a torch for shows up, and the main suspect in the child's disappearance is killed. Can Sarah help find this missing child? This adventure filled novel will keep you guessing until the very end.

Simple Stories poorly read and recorded

What would have made Sarah Woods Mystery Series: Books 1-3 better?

A different Narrator and a better recording. If the narrator had spoken more slowly and in a more interesting manner and if the recording didnt sound as though it was read straight into an iphone, the simple stories are OK

Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer L. Jennings? Why or why not?

Possibly - easy listening to pass a car journey if I have absolutely nothing else to listen to

Would you be willing to try another one of Erin Coleman’s performances?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sarah Woods Mystery Series: Books 1-3?

The scenes were fine, just the narration that made it hard to listen to for long periods

Any additional comments?

I should have read the reviews before purchasing the recording - my own fault!
