This was a good listen, fun to follow along & overall enjoyable. Some parts were a little juvenile but I think that's what made it an easy listen. I loved the storyline about Emily's house weaved in, it added to the main storyline well & I always wanted to hear more about the ghost!

The heroine of this story was too insecure & lacked basic common sense. Female relationships were shallow & stereotypic, and the repeated gushing over "handsome men" was exasperating. The narrator's style contributed to the dinginess of the main character.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The story was an enjoyable enough mystery based in a small town with the usual love triangles and simmering social tensions. There are the cute animal companions, the best friends and bits of town history that are trademarks of the genre. I think more could have been made of the ghost subplot or it could have been dropped altogether. It is possible this subplot was the author setting the scene for the next book. All in all it was a pleasant listen, though I found the story a little slow-moving at times, especially to start with, and some of the characters seemed less fully drawn than others.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration matched the pace of the story and was clear and concise but some of the accents felt ever so slightly off.
Could you see This Old Homicide being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?
This book is similar in tone and format to the Aurora Teagarden mysteries which have been made into a TV series. A series inspired by this book could appeal to a similar audience.
