Better than the first book

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

The narrator was ok. I like her voice, but she doesn't give distinct character voices which can make it difficult to follow.

There are a lot of characters in the story which made it a little difficult for me to follow. I like the story better than the first novel since she's actually investigating the murder and the novel ends with closure. (in the first novel we never resolve the mystery).

Although I loved the setting of the Greek Isles for the last book, I liked the variation of 'coming back home.' It helps give the main character, DS Abby Foulkes some depth and backstory. There are some great secondary characters that are lacking in the first book. This book felt a bit more real although there is still a British Nancy Drewness about her. I find it interesting that I have not rated this book as well as some that I liked far less. I think it is because the potential for this series to get much much better is real and I want to save some 'stars' for that.. Also I tend to rate within the genre which gives a great cozy mystery the same ranking as I would give Louise Penny even though Ms Penny's books blow any cozy out of the water. Enough justification! I really liked this book as I did the first - I heard some very good improvements in this second book one of which is the narrator. Much better!
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
