Publisher's Summary

In the gentle coastal town of South Cove, California, all Jill Gardner wants is to keep her store - Coffee, Books, and More - open and running. So why is she caught up in the business of murder?
When Jill's elderly friend Miss Emily calls in a fit of pique, she already knows that the city council is trying to force Emily to sell her dilapidated old house. But Emily's gumption goes for naught when she dies unexpectedly and leaves the house to Jill, along with all of her problems...and her enemies. Convinced that her friend was murdered, Jill is finding the list of suspects longer than the list of repairs needed on the house. But Jill is determined to uncover the culprit - especially if it gets her closer to South Cove's finest, Detective Greg King. The problem is, the killer knows that she's on the case - and is determined to close the book on Jill permanently.

Very Whiny and Slow

What did you like best about Guidebook to Murder? What did you like least?

This book would have been good except that the protagonist was way too whiny and passive. I had to discontinue listening about half way through because I couldn't stand it anymore. Too bad, because the author is a good writer, just needs to be more realistic about a woman asking a man who is pursuing her if he is married or not. Simple. Protagonist appeared to be stupid about how city councils and appeals work. The lack of action about her friend who disappeared was ridiculous. Very frustrating.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lynn Cahoon again?


Have you listened to any of Susan Boyce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard Susan Boyce before but she did as good a job as she could with the material she had.

Great clean PG murder mystery

I have not read anything by this author. I got it based on the title. This book was a great mystery. It would be a PG book and the bloody violence often present was not in this book. Neither was the explicit sexual content.
I enjoyed the book. It didn't drag alone, the characters were well defined and easy to understand and the book stayed in story and didn't jump from one environment or place to another nor did it jump periods of time. It moved along quickly and I never had to wonder how much longer I had to listen. Just a really simple book. I would allow my teens to listen to it. Refreshing. Now I am looking for others by the author.
