Publisher's Summary

Who knew knitting could be so deadly!
Former-teacher-turned-reporter Deena Sharpe craves more adventure than covering dull city council meetings in the small town of Maycroft, Texas. But when she follows a hunch to investigate a story lead, she finds a dead woman strangled by a knitted scarf and becomes suspect number one.
To make matters worse, a new psychic in town has residents on edge. Strange happenings multiply as quickly as the list of murder suspects, and Deena finds herself with more adventure than she had bargained for. No pedicure is too painful and no dumpster is too deep as Deena seeks to unveil the killer before anyone else gets hurt.
Sharpe Mind, book three in the Cozy Suburbs Mystery series, offers listeners a healthy dose of intrigue along with a generous sprinkle of humor. If you like a mystery with good, clean fun, cozy up to Sharpe Mind today!

Not a Dull Moment!

Deena Sharpe has retired from teaching journalism and taken a job as a reporter, but it's not all it's cracked up to be. She thinks covering the city council meetings is boring and longs to be an investigative reporter. When a mysterious psychic reader and her brother move into town, Deena is assigned to write a feature on them. In the process, Deena discovers a body and is caught up in the investigation.

This was a really cute cozy mystery that was plotted well and had some clever twists. There are plenty of characters but I never got confused about which character was which. The point of view revolves between about five different people and it really kept things interesting, and it managed to still hide the truth. I couldn't guess who the killer was ahead of time!

Deena is a dear, and absolutely hilarious! I loved all the secondary characters as well.
There were so many unexpected funny moments that had me laughing out loud. Deena's relationship with her husband was really sweet. This is the third book in the series, but it's the first one I read, and it can be read as a standalone.

Kelley Hazen has the perfect voice to narrate this book, she narrates dramatically and with spirit, just like I'd imagine Deena speaking. She brought a lot of life to the story. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Sharpe Mind: Cozy Suburbs Mystery Series, Book 3
: Lisa B. Thomas

This is book 3 in this cozy mystery series. As a cozy it is a good clean listen. Deena Sharpe, former school teacher turned reporter finds the dead body of an elderly woman. Enter....Deena the investigator. There are many things going on in town with familiar folks and newcomers as well. Lisa B. Thomas spins a tale that could possibly happen. With some humor tossed in this was an entertaining listen. Looking forward to book 4.




The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kelley Hazen takes the characters and emotion of the story line and gives them life.
