I really liked this light read. The story revolves around a a murder but I didn’t feel weighed down by the listening experience. Tense, edge of your seat thrillers are great for an adrenaline rush, but having a pleasant, laughable experience is better for the spirit. The humor was clever and witty without relying on slapstick silliness, cheap sexual references, or out-and-out stupidity. Levity is inserted in the narrative in such a way to maximize appreciation. The obvious romantic tension between the two unsuspecting protagonists is, in itself, a hoot (albeit a tad bit frustrating).
Still, the story is a "who-done-it", and although I figured it out one of primary mysteries, there were enough other surprises to keep me going and guessing wrong, wrong, wrong! (Really fun way to fail.)
Just a note: I started the series with this second installment. Authors Rebecca Cantrell and Sean Black did a terrific job of keeping the story relatively independent from the first installment and seamlessly backfilling details that would have otherwise left gaps.
Madeline Mrozek’s upbeat tone and energetic pace matched the words, their context, and what I believed was the authors' intent. Her voice kind of reminds me of Samantha of the original “Bewitched” from back in the day. “Bewitch” was one of my favorites so, for me, this is a good thing (I’m not old, I’m just a rerun hound…. yeah. :-) ...)

This installment was the best in the series. The mystery is more captivating. Sofia skills have developed to a new level. There is still the playful banter between her and Aidan. For once she is not caught in a uncompromising situation. Her family are only in for only a few minutes. If you have enjoyed the series, you must read this one.

I found this an interesting story. I hadn't actually known this was book 4 till I came to review it, I just pushed play on my phone after finishing another story today. But I found the world created here pretty easy to get into.
Madeline does a great job with the characters, putting the right sense of humour and fun into each one. Of course it's an investigation story which you really want to see through to the end by the time it really kicks in. I did wonder about the French accent though wasn't sure if it sounded like something else in my mind... could just have been me. lol
I loved the show and all the horsey extras. Cowboy or not it was great to see a show from someone elses eyes. I think I'll be checking out more in this series, because I had a great day today, with some fun and laughter. Many thanks to both author and narrator.

What disappointed you about "D" Is for Drunk?
I found the book too slow going: I got to chapter 10 and little seemed to have happened.
Any additional comments?
It isn't my kind of book, but I would try other books by the author as I rarely like all the works of any author.
