Nice cozy!

This book is a fun cozy mystery. The main character Samantha is staying at her boyfriends ritzy condo while he was away on classified business. The condos classic drunk abusive couple down the hall are at it again and the wife shows up drunk and naked. After police arrive it is discovered the husband is dead, the wife is the chief suspect. What seems to be an open and shut domestic turns into a bit more when an obnoxious lawyer shows up, strange noises on the balcony occur and mysterious notes claim the wifes innocence are found. Full of pretensious, quickery, and strange neighbors Sam tries to solve the case while reconsiling her relationship with her mysterious boyfriend. The narrator does a great job! I think there may be more books in the series and if so I look forward to listening! I received a free review copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily ledt this review.

Great characters

The stand out in this story is definitely the characters, their rich make-up creates an engaging and interesting story.

I haven't read book one, and while I was still able to enjoy this book as a standalone, it was very clear that I was missing a lot of backstory and that knowing the backstory would make a difference. So if you haven't already, I recommend that you get book one first.

The mystery aspect of this story was well done, there were lots of possible suspects and it wasn't obvious who the culprit was until a fair way towards the end.

A thrilling listen, I really enjoyed it.

The narrator did a great job, the character voices were well done and the delivery had a good rhythm and tone to it.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
