What did you like best about this story?
Grave Shift by Barbara Burgess and Blanche Day Manos is an average mystery. The two main characters, mother Flora and daughter Darcy, are both widows. The daughter, a reporter, has come home to heal and regroup after the death of her husband. This is the second book in a series but there are no spoilers and this book stands alone.

What did you love best about Grave Shift?
I really liked this clean cozy mystery. I loved the unexpected twists in this story. The narrator did a very good job conveying the accent of people from Oklahoma.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Darcy is my favorite character. She is the lead character in the book. Darcy used to be an investigative reporter. She had an endearing personality. I also really liked her mom.
Which character – as performed by Michelle Babb – was your favorite?
Michelle Babb did a very good job with the voices. I had a slightly harder time trying to distinguish the various male characters. Darcy's voice was very interesting.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I liked the reaction to the earthquake. Having been in an earthquake before, I thought the author did a fantastic job conveying the unsettling feelings the characters experienced. I also like the fact the story almost had 2 mysteries in it. (1) disappearance of Andrea (2) stalker of Darcy.
Any additional comments?
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator. I found this book to be both a standalone and part of a series. This is the first cozy mystery that I have listened to. I enjoyed this book very much and will look at more by both this author and narrator. I found both to be very talented.

Would you recommend Grave Shift to your friends? Why or why not?
The book was ok. I think it needs shortening down. The main character tends to think a lot and that slowed the book down. I would still recommend it if you like mystery with no violence/language/sexual content.
Which character – as performed by Michelle Babb – was your favourite?
The narrator is good in this book. She had a southern accent which suited the story. I could imagine the characters quite clearly. I thought the narrator was very good compared to others that I have listened to!
Could you see Grave Shift being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
I could image this being made into a TV series, since it is clean, has suspense, mystery and is suitable for all.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author.
I miss the first narrator. It is always disconcerting not hearing the voice you have associated with the characters from the first book.
