Not what I was expecting

I was provided a free copy of this book by the Narrator for review.

I don't like to write negative reviews so I will be brief.
As far as mysteries go, this mystery almost seems geared towards children. At least that is my opinion.
The story doesn't flow very well and it was very difficult to remain interested.

The narration was not well done. I felt like a child being read a bedtime story. The narrator sounds like she is reading to children.

Not something I will recommend.

One big "eh" from me

Any additional comments?

"Wrapped in Death and Chocolate" has a decent mystery at it's core but just about everything else is a little too absurd for me to have enjoyed it. This book is about a detective (an actual detective) who gets a murder case and goes to a group of women who "solve crimes" in their spare time aside from running their ice cream shop. Outside of the fact that this premise is ridiculous, (why would a detective need the help of a bunch of uneducated, non-police people to help solve crimes? where the hell are the other cops???) the actual "solving" of the crimes were just these women standing around talking about what might have logically happened (but mostly talking about how the "case" was affecting one of the women). It was hard to listen to.

I hate when books about women belittle their intelligence (why couldn't these women have just been cops? Why was there so much concern about the one who knew the victim's ability to keep her room cleaned and groceries bought? It felt so sexist and weird). The narrator also had an inflection to her voice that I found very irritating. She didn't mix it up at all, just that same inflection throughout. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Not as good as I thought it would be.

What was most disappointing about CS Patra’s story?

There was a lot of things that I did not like about this book. I found Stacey one of the main characters hard to believe and really annoying. She would say one thing and do another. She kept saying that she is not upset over the death of the model since they used to be friends but they grow apart and were more like acquaintances. she would then go and get upset over her death and yet she tells her friend that she is not, she kept doing this through majority of the book. I kept thinking just make up your mind in what you are feeling!

She would then say that she had to solve the case and yet they work as a group but it had to be her who solved it. She would get upset about the boss of the chocolate factory for thinking about his factory instead of the murder and yet she is doing the same thing. Instead of saying lets solve it for the dead person sake, she thought and said that she had to solve the case. Guess who solved the case. Yep you guessed it! Stacey did. I thought she was being selfish and she did not really care for the dead model even though she said she did.

I guessed who did it and why before they did and I found them to be so slow in figuring things out and they were meant to be the best, since the police went to them for help.

I felt this book was more fantasy, in that everything fell in to place and they could get away with a lot of things that they wouldn't be able to do in reality.

Would you be willing to try another one of Abbi Fox’s performances?

This is not the best narrator that I have listened to but she is not the worst.

Any additional comments?

This audio book was given to me for free at my request by the author and I provided this voluntary review.
