This was the first book in this series i have read/listened to. I did not realize it was book/9/. None the less, i still enjoyed this mystery. I did not know who the murderer was till the very last. I would love to go back and read books 1 through 8, I received this book as a gift in exchange for a honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story. The narrator, Angie Hickman did a fantastic job bringing the main character, Lizzie Jones to life and made it easy to differentiate the personas of the other characters.
The authors, Sally Smith and Jean Steffens did a wonderful job creating a story with many twists and turns and dilemmas as Lizzie, her grandfather Jimmy John, and Tino, her new love interest, struggled to prove the innocence of Lizzie's friend, Caroline, of the murder of her husband, Mr. Jupiter.
The attention to descriptive detail and the down to earth dialogue create an atmosphere of adventure and camaraderie among Lizzie and her peers. The humorous quips and subtle innuendos add spice to the story.
Kudos to Jean and Sally for a job well done. AUTHOR! AUTHOR!
And kudos to Angie Hickman for a fantastic narration!
Would you listen to Passion, Poison & Puppy Dogs again? Why?
Yes, it was an enjoyable quick listen, nothing in depth you really had to think about, you could just relax and let your mind picture the events and surroundings. I am not saying I want to read it again immediately but it definitely is one for a day when I am stressed and just want a story that runs along on its own with no input from me.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Passion, Poison & Puppy Dogs?
For me the funeral ( don't think I am giving anything away about there being a funeral, it is a murder mystery after all - being from Scotland I had to suspend truth but then that is what these types of books are for to just be a story with no pretence of being realistic Yes its nice to have a book at times where the author(s) have to spend much time on research and everything is factually correct but sometimes you just want a book that is a story and artistic license makes it more interesting and fun. I have no complaints about this and would certainly read more by these authors
Have you listened to any of Angie Hickman’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Sorry no but then it was not that type of book so not really a fair question for it.
Any additional comments?
If you just want a book to listen to when you want to mentally relax then this book is great, no mental input needed. It has a plot in which everything hangs together well - the reader is not left saying hold on how can that be nor are they likely to work out who the murderer is in the first few chapters either - enough suspense and red herrings to keep you guessing.
I received this book free on the understanding I would give a fair review and this is what, in my opinion, I have done.
