Publisher's Summary

Nursing a broken heart, Robbie Jordan is trading in her life on the West Coast for the rolling hills of Southern Indiana. After paying a visit to her Aunt Adele, she fell in love with the tiny town of South Lick. And when she spots a "for sale" sign on a rundown country store, she decides to snap it up and put her skills as a cook and a carpenter to use.
Everyone in town shows up for the grand reopening of Pans 'n Pancakes, but when the mayor's disagreeable assistant is found dead, Robbie realizes that not all press is good press. With all eyes on her, she'll have to summon her puzzle-solving skills to clear her name, unscramble the town's darkest secrets, and track down a cold-blooded killer - before she's the next to die.

Distracting

Where does Flipped for Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I haven't a problem with the storyline. My issue is with the narrator. The story is about a young woman, the narrator sounds like an older lady whose voice has a hint of shakiness in it. It makes it hard to focus on the story and what is going on. My mind keeps picturing an older lady. I have to remind myself she is not.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laural Merlington?

absolutely not.

Incredibly Bland

Flipped for Murder had the potential to be entertaining, if only the characters were not so incredibly bland. In particular, country store/café owner Robbie was hard-working yet boring as hell, however none of the small town residents were unique or engaging.

Robbie did not seem to fit into the small, mid-western town where her mother grew up. She kindly rescued a stray cat but did not take the animal to a vet (anyone in food service should be more health conscious); she went for a walk in a state forest without being aware of the possible dangers (wild animals, hunting season).

When there were several attempts on her life, Robbie seemed too dense to realize that her life was seriously in danger. I really expected that a woman in her late 20s who had the ability to open her own business would have more common sense. I wanted to care what happened to Robbie but I could hardly stay awake.
