About as realistic as "Death In Paradise" but sometimes that is what you want. I like the small town setting and the characters. The narrator is great.
this is my second audio adventure with the Maggie Thorson character and my fourth overall, and I must admit to still loving her style of writing and the wit it uses. I find her comparable to other favourites of mine Rex Stout and Agatha Christie.
if you are looking for a hard edged, gritty and dark story you may have to look elsewhere, but this is the sort of murder filled romp with plenty charms and twists for those after something a little lighter. it helps that it has well rounded characters who are both likable and interesting. Though I will say I did find this a slightly weaker mystery than others, working out the killer quickly, but the twists kept my interest.
The narration is excellent, easy to listen to and a perfect match for the tone of the novel. I am already looking forward to the next time I enjoy the pairing of Sandra Balzo and Karen Savage for another Maggie Thorson mystery
