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.

Stop using the word "got" instead of was or were
Since I prefer to listen than to read the book, I was thrilled to find this series.
It kept me guessing the hold time.
The narrator did a very nice job. She gets better as the series goes on.
Oh yes I did listen in one sitting. That is what I love about audiobooks is you can listen and do other things too.
This is a great series but the writer needs to have her characters stop saying the word got instead of was or were. These people are college graduates and saying "the shed got locked" instead of " was locked" sounds like they are 5 years old. Other than that, I am really loving the series.

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