I love these Amellia Moore mysteries. Amelia and Rick are so real. They are great together and the stories are very good too.
The stories are always top notch. I love Amellia and Rick.

Several with Amellia and Rick.
I absolutely love the way Diane Lehman reads these books. I don't usually care for the readers but I love her. She is my favorite.

A clean and fun cozy mystery!
With the talented Diane Lehman narrating The Mysterious Doll, I do believe she adds an extra level of enjoyment to the audio!
There were so many! However, because I'd had previous experiences with elk, I really enjoyed the snippets about the elk around Estes Park in the Rocky Mountains. Here's a short snippet from that scene: Estes Park was set in a valley surrounded by the Rocky Mountain National Park....
When I visited a few years ago, there were actually elk grazing on the golf course."
"Are you serious?"
"Hey, every year in October they have an Elk Festival. That's why I came here. I wanted to see it 'cause it was on my bucket list."
"An Elk Festival?" Amelia laughed.
"You have the most awesome things on your bucket list. Mine seem boring compared to yours." Amelia raised her brow curiously. "What was the festival like?"
"It was awesome. They had an elk bugling contest, elk seminars, Native American music, dancing and storytelling. They even had bus tours that took you to see the elk grazing in the fields. It was great. I loved it."
"Wait a minute," said Amelia as she tilted her head to one side.
"What's an elk bugling contest?"
Rick grinned. "It's the call of the elk. Anyone can compete. Whoever sounds the most like an elk wins. You can use a horn or just your own voice. When I was there, the man who won used his voice. It was really something."
Amelia's eyes widened with curiosity. "How did he do it? What does it sounds like?"
Rick chuckled. "Well... the call starts out with deep rich tones. Then it quickly rises to a high-pitched squealing sound and immediately drops down to a bunch of grunts."
Diane Lehman continues as the talented narrator of this series. Her voice is extremely clear with perfect inflections. She differentiates between the characters to where I have no problem knowing who is speaking. She's quite versatile as throughout the series she's voiced multiple accents and sang in different genuine-sounding voices. She has more treats in store for listeners in this book so prepare to be amazed! I look forward to hearing more of her performances in the future.
I did want to listen to The Mysterious Doll in one sitting especially as the suspense of solving the who-done-it came to a head!
I've enjoyed every one of the books in this series so far and look forward to traveling again soon with Amelia and Rick! I hear that the next book, HER LOST LOVE, will have our detectives in pursuit of a lost love in northern Arizona and southern Utah. I can't wait! I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys endearing cozy mysteries.
