If you are looking for something light and entertaining, this might be it. I was unfamiliar with Leighann Dobbs, the author, so got this based on some good reviews.
Hazel Martin is a widow and writer of mystery novels. Her elderly friend (very wealthy, naturally) seeks her help in trying to figure out who among the relatives who stand to inherit her money might be trying to get her out of the way prematurely.
The book is not heavy-weight reading (listening) but it does summon up some of the fun from the classic “between the wars” British mysteries. Hazel uses her experiences as a writer, thinking what her detectives would do, to help her find the clues she needs. She has a cat named Dickens who has accompanied her to this house. And it turns out that she knows the inspector, who of course values her assessment of the case.
A nice little cozy and a decent mystery—plenty of clues for the listener to keep up with. Recommend.

There are no blue jays in England and water comes out of a tap not a faucet.
These errors highlighted that the author is American and spoiled the otherwise good story.
