Publisher's Summary

A walk in the park, online connections, and dangerous discoveries.

When the cybersecurity expert who checked out Stacie’s computer turns up dead, Stacie and her good friend and IT whiz, Trina, find themselves entangled in the ensuing murder investigation. Who killed Sam and why? Was the motive personal or was Sam silenced because he discovered potentially illegal activity as part of a client’s routine security audit?

With Stacie at her side, Trina reaches out to other tech people who knew Sam in an effort to connect the dots and, in the process, places both women in the sights of a killer.

Great read

Great read. A great continuation of the series but works well as a stand alone. Can’t wait to see what happens next. I received a free copy and left my honest review

Excellent Woman Sleuth

This was book 4 in the "Stacie Maroni Mystery" series and it was as good as all the other books in the series. Stacie is one of my favorite woman sleuths as she is intelligent and practical. In this story, Stacie was dragged into a murder investigation with her best friend Trina. The book was clever and fast-paced. I was entertained by the different characters that populated the book. Naomi Rose-Mock's narration was superb, and she provided a voice that suited Stacie's character well. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily posted this review.

Tech Intrigue and murder

Connection, Conflict & Murder is #4 in the Stacie Maroni Mystery series by Christa Nardi. This story involves high tech cybersecurity problems and low tech solution of murder. Stacie and her friend / co-worker in IT, Trina are targeted when a cybersecurity contractor is killed in a local park. He had fixed Stacie’s work computer and she found him dead, and he was Trina’s friend and mentor. The story is interesting and engaging with twists and turns. I love the characters, they’re the kind of people you wish were your co-workers and friends. Stacie’s still trying to decide on whether to make a career change and go back to school for an advanced degree. The narration by Naomi Rose-Mock is wonderful. Her performance creates unique voices for the characters so its easy to distinguish them. She brings the story and characters to life.

Who killed Sam

Connection, Conflict, and Murder is A Stacie Marine Mystery by Christa Nardi. I enjoyed this mystery and really liked the characters. Stacie is smart, she is a cyber security expert whose best friend is an IT whiz. Sam was killed at the Park and Stacie knew the victim. Of course, vs he wants to poke in the police investigation which puts her at odds with her former police boyfriend, Rick. I felt that Christa Nardi built the story perfectly with clues and a good pace. The narrator is Naomi Rose-Mock and her performance was outstanding. I enjoyed this audio book.

dark intentions discovered

Another great suspenseful and intriguing mystery that Stacie gets involved in. I enjoyed this twisted trail to its conclusion. Interesting and engaging characters with a storyline that kept me listening. Hope Stacie gets her head together soon. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator was good.

murder

I loved the narration of Naomi Rose-Mock

While on a walk with her dog , Stacie comes across the body of a dead man, who she recognises. In between dealing with issues of cyber security, a possible stalker and other issues at work, she finds the killer. Oh yes the FBI. A great mystery.

Good Listen

This is the first of the series I have read and although it's book 4 it wasn't difficult to follow and stands alone well. The story is well written and interesting, it gets involved at times but is very good. Fast paced and plenty of characters for the narrator Naomi Rose-Mock to get her teeth into with the different voices. The climax is a little predictable but enjoyable all the same.
I was given a promo copy of the book by the author Crista Nardi and leave this honest and voluntary review.

Another great listen

This is the 4th installment but can be listened to as a standalone but think it would be better as a continuation as you get to understand all the back stories etc.

This is a really nice easy listen and the narrator adds to the story.

Do thoroughly recommend the series

Computer mayhem

I enjoyed this book. This is the four book in this fun series, the books can be read or listened to in any order because each book is a standalone mystery and gets wrapped up nicely. With technology slowly taking over our daily lives, I enjoyed how it could very easily become a problem.The mystery was interesting and with this great group of friends and characters it worked well. I especially liked Trina in the hospital, highly amusing. Stacie's love life seems to be taking a turn, so expect drama but still a good mystery.
While out working her dog, Stacie hears a gun shot and unlike everybody else she runs towards the sound. Lying dead on the ground she unexpectedly recognises the victim and with his death it makes her work life chaotic. Sam was the cybersercurity expect called in to service the computers. Was there a breach? Stacie's friend Trina is the one called in to check over all the computers for any bugs or malware. Until the police discovery a connection between her and the dead guy. The pair of them shared ideas and tips, so if he was killed for something he saw on a computer, why not start with his computer friends? Sam"'s secrecy and paranoia doesn't help, nobody knows where he even lives.The police just have screen names for his friends. Trina has an idea to track down the people who know him best but doing so will make her a target. Can Stacie and her friends find the motive for the murder and in doing so reveal the killer before somebody else gets killed?
I liked the narrator. She has a pleasant voice and uses it well to give different voices to the characters.
