Publisher's Summary

Emily and Stan Remington's maiden voyage in their newly inherited, second-hand RV goes awry when a body falls off the top of their vehicle. The retired small town police officer and her husband, a retired history professor, find themselves at the center of a murder investigation involving a politician, a corporate executive, and a maverick priest. Emily butts heads with the local sheriff as their search takes them from a backwoods cabin in Wisconsin's scenic Door County to the Bishop's Chancery in Madison to an abandoned island in the infamous Death's Door Straits.

Great cozy!

As a Wisconsin native, mystery addict, and law enforcement supporter, I had some expectations, and the good ones were fulfilled. It was fun following their antics as new RVers and also the adjustment of living in each other's pockets after a lifetime of working and raising children. Finding a corpse yet being a civilian for a change, was another adjustment for Emily. There is plenty of humor, vivid scenic descriptions, clear characterizations, and a solid plot at a comfortable speed. I intend to look for more of these.
Jane Oppenheimer is remarkably well suited and adds good things with her narration.
I requested and received this audio free from the publisher, author, or narrator courtesy of AudioBookBOOM.

Endearing Characters

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Jane Oppenheimer did a wonderful job narrating this delightful tale of retirees in Door County stuck in the middle of a murder mystery. The characters are likable, believable, and endearing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of On the Road to Death's Door?

I particularly liked the shift in the relationship between Sheriff Pelletier and the main character, Emily Remington. Because of Emily's excellent investigative skills and tenacity, the sheriff accepts her help and comes to deeply respect her. It was also interesting to learn about the bombing in Madison, Wisconsin.

What does Jane Oppenheimer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ms. Oppenheimer has a soothing voice that's easy to listen to which is perfect for this cozy mystery. She also subtly changes her voice for each of the characters in a way that helps to picture them.
