Publisher's Summary

Former English professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers' retreats in the big blue Victorian she's inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband. Now it's an authors' getaway, but Cat won't let anyone get away with murder.
The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and best-selling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn't know why he came all the way from New York, but she's glad to have him among the quirkier - and far less famous - attendees.
Cat's high school sweetheart, Seth, who's fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat, some of them a little overpowering. But it's her uncle, the local police chief, whom she'll call for help when there's a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?

I enjoyed the author's previous series and found this poor by comparison. The narrator's voice is grating, the main character is unlikable and I found the dialogue hard to listen to. I wish the author would bring back her Coffee, Books and More setting and characters.

Enjoyable Story - Great Mystery

If you could sum up A Story to Kill in three words, what would they be?

Great new series

What did you like best about this story?

I like the characters and the idea that it is a writer's retreat run by a writer is great. It will be interesting to see how this story develops.

How could the performance have been better?

I'm not quite sure, but I think she would be better suited narrating non-fiction works. Her enunciation is too clipped, her diction too precise, and her inflection in the dialogue ruins the story. I will be reading this one. Susan Boyce does a great job on Ms. Cahoon's other series. I really wish that she could read this one, too. (Or at least, someone with Ms. Boyce's understanding of dialogue.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Because of the narration.

Any additional comments?

Please confine C S E Cooney to nonfiction. I'm sure that is better suited to her talents.
