Fun cozy figure as you go mystery

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

What a fun mystery! I would definitely recommend this book to others. It's a double mystery--who killed the protagonist's friend and who is harassing an African American teacher awash among Causasian teachers and students? The main caharacter, Susan, figures out the mystery in first-person format and keeps us guessing with her.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

IT did! I love love cozy mysteries because the dialogue doesn't always focus on the mystery. Death at Hilliard High did a good job of weaving the 2 mystery stories and giving us some fun day to day stories

What about Barbara Benjamin-Creel’s performance did you like?

Ms Creel has a soothing voice and does a fine job of distinguishing different characters.

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

It was, and I did!

Enjoyable Listen

This story begins with an African-American teacher named Shauna Thompson who teaches English at Hilliard High which is an all white school. She receives an interesting sort of secret admirer note and an even more interesting present. It wasn't really offensive, just curious and somewhat creepy. She calls on Susan to help her get to the bottom of the mystery.

At the same time there's another plot brewing. Another teacher goes missing after his wife is found dead, lying at the bottom of the basement stairs at the couples home.

I like the way the author ties in two plots together in one story. That was a good idea and it worked. I also like Susan's hubby Swash. He becomes more active in this installment by purchasing a classic car from the internet and getting involved with the car club. Susan's friend Elaine is back and having on and off issues with her beau whose off writing a novel in N.Y.

Overall, this is a good listen and knowing the main players is great. It's as if you're part of the family. As always, Barbara Benjamin-Creel does a wonderful job voicing these very likeable characters. I think anyone would enjoy listening to or reading this series. Its fun and light. Another good one!
