What made the experience of listening to A Killer Plot the most enjoyable?
The narration by Karen White was spot on, but my favorite part of the book was the relationship with Olivia and Haviland (her dog). All the times that Olivia speaks to Haviland and narrates that way was a technique I loved. You really feel like they are a crime fighting due together, and you grow to love them both and cheer them on at each stop.
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Killer Plot?
This book had a lot of great scenes that I went back to re-listen to (just because the performance was THAT good), and I loved the scene where Olivia and Cosmo were driving to the airport and Olivia finally shares the story of what happened to her parents when she was a child. It was a big moment where you finally understood Olivia.
What does Karen White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She brings the characters to life perfectly, and she does a wonderful job of making you feel like you can visualize and be there inside the book. Each character has a distinctly different voice so you know exactly who is speaking (even when there are lots of characters in one scene). I love how she narrated Dixie and captured all of her sass, and I felt very attached to Olivia and Haviland by the end of the book. Karen White makes you invest in the characters
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I would want to, yes. It's a little long for one sitting but I like that I can savor it over the course of a couple of days.
Any additional comments?
I loved everything about this book! Olivia as a character is strong but what I love is that she isn't like some other typical cozy mystery heroines who make really glaringly dumb choices,. Olivia gets results without overstepping her boundaries, and it makes the book a whole lot more realistic that way, which in turn draws you in even more. You feel connected to Olivia and get to take this journey with her as she gets to know the town folk of Oyster Bay little by little. I also love her relationship with Haviland (her dog), they are a crime stopping duo together, and that dynamic is something I never got from other series. I can hardly WAIT to get into the other books in this series.

While I loved Olivia's devotion to her poodle Havilland, I didn't connect with the main character. The author showed talent and humor, so I would try another book by Ellery Adams.
