Publisher's Summary

Feeling guilty for spending too much time on her phone and wanting to get back into the spirit of literature, amateur sleuth Geneva Pomolo attends a Jane Austen-themed party hosted by the Brixton family. Tensions are simmering between Kerri and her husband Jeremy. The party is thrown into disarray when a quarrel erupts between the couple, provoking Jeremy to storm out.

Things go from bad to murder when Jeremy is found dead on the street outside his home, having apparently been stabbed by the owner of the knife-sharpening van that patrols the neighborhood looking for business each afternoon. But when the owner of the van reports he was sick on the day of the murder, suspicion falls first on Kerri and then on an actress, whose brother had been killed by Kerri’s and Jeremy’s son during a drunken boat ride.

With the assistance of her partner, Iris Reeves, Geneva attempts to unravel this most tangled of cases. Their investigation leads them from a beehive-shaped yurt on the coast to an outdoor literature festival where death stalks in plain view. In the process, Geneva uncovers a secret that threatens to ruin what remains of the Brixton family….

Geneva and Iris on the Cass

During a theme party Geneva and Iris are pulled into the murder Mystery when the cohost Mr. Jeremy Brixton is found dead in the street. While the two are investigating the murder the bodies start to pile up just as fast as the suspect list. The storyline is nicely written and the characters are believable and well developed. Kathleen Strecker does an amazing job bringing each of the characters to life as well as keeping the listener entertained. If you love mysteries that are clean, intriguing with a slight mix of the paranormal this book is for you. I highly recommend this book and series. This is my honest unbiased review that I am voluntarily leaving of my own volition.

Very Good!

This is a very good short Cozy mystery, the characters are likeable mostly and all are well defined. The story itself is well paced and I found myself listening to it in one sitting. Donna Muse is a new author to me and I'll certainly be looking for more of her books in the future. Kathleen Strecker does an excellent job of the narration bringing all the characters to life. She really sounds to be enjoying the narration which helps a great deal. Well recommended listen.
I was kindly given a copy of this book by the narrator and leave this honest and voluntary review.
