Fun suspenseful mystery

I have to start off saying that I didn’t notice that this was the final book in a five part series, but that didn’t really cause any issue. It seemed to stand up by itself just fine and while I’m sure there are characters I should have known more about, I didn’t think that I really needed to in order to understand what was going on.
The story was a fun one. Really liked Ivan’s character and story. Definitely want to start from the beginning to experience all that is the Town of Cold Hollow.
The narration is spot on. J. Scott Bennett has a great voice for each character and really did a fantastic job.

The Butcher

I have a sense that if I had read this series in order, I would have had a much different impression of this book. I spent much of it being somewhat confused. But for that I can only blame myself, as I did start this series on book 5! Outside of being a little lost, I found this story to be outrageously different from things I normally read, which are within this genre as well. I intend to go back to the beginning and consume this series in the right way! Bennett delivers a good performance.

Keep up the good work, mayor.

Cold Hollow is a pleasant little town visited, and loved, by tourists. But beneath the surface it is not quite all it appears to be and it's relatively peaceful life is threatened by the arrival of two men, one the brother of a resident who had recently died in a fire, the other his bulky servant, Ivan. Samuel had come to take his sister's remains home to New York - and to take revenge on those Cold Hollow inhabitants he believed had murdered her.

Of course, he was right. His sister's death had not been a natural one. But then, most of the permanent residents of Cold Hollow were far from 'natural'. From Myrna, the mayor to the lady who ran the pastry shop, they all had secrets in their past, some of these secrets even still held from the other members of this affectionate 'family' of citizens. And everyone in this tight knit group of the "pleasantly corrupt town" was in agreement: Samuel had to be "handled."

Emilie J.Howard's, The Butcher, is the last in the Cold Hollow series and, although completely stand alone, is definitely enhanced with familiarity of the somewhat bizarre locals and their previous histories. The delightful characterisations are given even greater depth and life with J.Scott Bennett's excellent narration and his very pleasantly accented voice delivers the text flawlessly with perfect pacing, understanding and intonation. A great symbiosis of author and narrator.

Essentially, this book has everything: well written with extremely interesting characters, humour, sometimes with laugh out loud moments, emotion, mystery, and a rattling good story all read superbly. A fitting end to a most enjoyable and unexpected series. Try it and see.
