Great Book!

Any additional comments?

This is a great book; this is the second book in the Walking Calamity Mystery series written by CeeCee James and narrated by Jennifer Groberg.

The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises.The narrator Jennifer Groberg did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Join the Adventure!!

What a fun audiobook! I haven't listened to all of CeeCee James books on Audible yet, but I am well on my way! I love her writing, and if you like Cozy Mysteries, you will adore The Bitter Taste of Betrayal: An Angel Lake Mystery! This is Book 2 in the series....let me say, I cannot wait to get Book 3! The main character Elise is great, and her best friend Lavina cracks me up! I am still laughing at some of her goofy comments....CeeCee James must be a funny lady. Hehee!

In this book the ladies are on a cruise, ready to relax and have some fun. Of course, that is not going to happen....who could have fun with a killer onboard??!! I won't tell you anything about what happens because you can read that in the description, but as you listen to this book, you will feel like you are on this cruise ship with them. The characters and plot are well developed and the descriptive details set the scene perfectly! The mystery is solved at the end, so there are no cliff hangers!! Thank you for that....I like the sense of closure!

Although isn't necesaary to start with Book 1, you should anyway because it is equally entertaining. If you don't, though, there is background information so you can better understand who the characters are. I love these characters and their adventures, and that is what keeps me coming back for more! I'm sure you, too, will feel the same!

The narrator is the same as one as the first book. She does a great job with the voices (and funny accents). She makes it easy to tell who is speaking at the time.

I can't wait to join Elise in her next adventure! She makes me smile and laugh. I hope you decide to join us, too! Thank you for reading my review! :-)
