Publisher's Summary

Things couldn't be better for Trudie Fine and her partner, Zachary Cohen. It's the first big job for their catering company, A Fine Fix, and everyone who's anyone in the Washington, D.C., area will be at the Schwartzes' backyard Mexican fiesta. With the tables set, the food prepared to perfection, and the Mariachi band sizzling, Trudie is mellow as a Margarita smoothie... until a dead body is discovered floating in the pool. When Zach is arrested as the prime murder suspect, Trudie sets out to clear him and find the real murderer. Life gets spicier than a jalapeno pepper when she realizes she's the focus of three men's affections, including the unnerving detective handling the case. Soon, however, Trudie is reaching for her favorite knife, but not to chop vegetables. Recipes included!

My new series!!

A Fine Fix: A Trudie Fine Mystery by Gale Deitch, Narrated by Kristin James is my new cozy mystery series! I'm so happy I decided on this book!! I love cozy mysteries, but I couldn't find a new series to really grab my attention...until now! I 100% plan to purchase the next in the series immediately after writing this review. Yay!

The storyline moves along quickly with surprises and sparks of romance by Trudie's three suitors at every turn. I'll let you read the plot description yourself, so I don't accidentally give anything away! The storyline was easy to follow, entertaining to the max, and kept me engaged throughout. This is my first book by Author Gale Deitch, and as I said before, and I couldn't be happier to have found her! She really keeps you guessing and on your toes! I was really surprised to find out "whodunit," and it was the furthest from my continuously changing predictions of the killer. Way to go, Gale!

Narrator Kristin James was great! Her use of multiple voices and singing...yes, singing...had me cracking up! I feel that her narration added to my enjoyment of the book. There were a few times I noticed she didn't fully switch over over to the new character speaking, but it didn't take away from the overall performance enough to reduce a star. I felt she did a wonderful job, and I'm very happy to see she also narrates the next two audiobooks in A Trudie Fine Mystery Series available on Audible. Keep up the great work, Kristin!

I rate this audiobook 4.5-5 stars across the board. I absolutely LOVE the main character, Trudie. She is a real person who is easy to relate to, and I felt as if we had been friends for some time. I know, weird, right? I can't help it, though! She is super likable, funny, caring, and family-oriented. The recipes at the end of the book were also a great addition. They sound fabulous and easy to follow...exactly how they should be. I also like that there are only a few of them, rather than some cozies I have listened to where 1/3 of the book goes on and on forever with fancy recipes I'll probably never be able to make....can you tell I'm not a gourmet chef? Hehe! I definitely recommend this audiobook to lovers of the cozy mystery genre as well as those who enjoy a good fiesta! ¡Olé!

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)
