Publisher's Summary

A touch of nostalgia, good friends, and murder. 

When a former colleague is implicated in his neighbor’s demise, Sheridan Hendley returns to Cold Creek to prove his innocence. Annoying as Max can be, she can’t imagine the quirky professor is capable of murder. Unfortunately, not everyone shares her opinion. Of course, it doesn’t help that Max threatened his neighbor in a public place soon before the man was murdered. Or that the victim’s drug shipments had a habit of turning up on Max’s doorstep. Only as Sheridan asks more questions, she again puts a target on her back. Twists and complications make this an enjoyable listen.

Maddie stands with Max

Old Friends and New, Another Murder, Book 3 by Christa Nardi. This audio story is very entertaining. Jeanne Pilgrim gives an outstanding performance as the narrator. Maddie stands by her old neighbor, Professor Max, when he is accused of murder. Sure does not help that Max is getting drugs delivered to his home! I have enjoyed all of the audio books in this series.

Old Friends

Things are really going to be shaken up in Cold Creek when somebody finds a dead body. There’s suspicion of drugs being involved and there are people who had interactions with the man who died who are being investigated. I really enjoy Sheridan and her family. There are fun, quirky characters throughout the story and lots of humor. And lots of dogs. I listened to the audiobook and enjoyed the narration by Jeanne Pilgrim Mayo.

Helping A Colleague From Her Past

This is the third book in the Sheridan Hendley Mystery series, and it was entertaining. A colleague from Sheridan's past has been accused of murder. Sheridan becomes involved in the investigation of the crime. What I enjoy the most in this series is the way that Christa Nardi has written the characters. The interpersonal relationship between Sheridan, her husband, and her stepdaughter along with the quirky characters, that work at the Pets and Paws dog shelter, make this an enjoyable story to hear. I recommend this series to others. Jeanne Pilgrim Mayo's narration is awesome, and she adds to the story's entertainment. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

do neighbors make good suspects?

This is the first in the series that I have read, actually listened to the story, even though it’s the third book in the series.

Professor Sheridan Hendley going back to Cold Creek to help her colleague, Max, who is caught up in the murder investigation of his neighbor. Max did have a public argument with the victim but Sheridan is convinced that Max would never murder anyone. Max is annoying and over the top in so many ways. Max keeps droning on the fact, in his eyes, that Detective Brett McMann, Sheridan’s husband is out to get him. I find it amazing that Sheridan puts up with him.

Sheridan is an adjunct professor (field of psychology) at the local college. While she is there teaching she runs into a new professor. Apparently, he was hired after the recent death of a professor that was Max’s neighbor. This new teacher is trying to find out a lot of information on Sheridan. We’re not sure what his end game is during the major portion of the book.

Sheridan & Brett work well together and share information. While Sheridan is on campus, she is sideswiped by someone on a skateboard or scooter. This places her into a kneel scooter for a major portion of the story.

I liked the family dynamics of Brett, Sheridan, and Maddie, Brett’s daughter. I also liked the interactions within the family concerning Maddie’s well-being. Maddie is having a hard time wanting to spend time with her mother after her mother runs off with her new husband.

Another aspect is the humanity the author shows by having Maddie & Sheridan volunteering at the local animal shelter.

Overall, this was a good mystery with plenty of local charm.

Great mystery series

Old Friends and New, Another Murder is the 3rd in the Sheridan Hendley mystery series by Christa Nardi. The title says it all. Sheridan becomes embroiled in a murder mystery that includes her college, and her friends. She tries to stay out of it, but someone is targeting her! In the end, the murder and crimes are solved and everything is set to rights. The characters and relationships are continuing to grow in this 3rd book and that’s wonderful! The narration by Jeanne Pilgrim Mayo is terrific. She brings the characters to life with unique voices. Highly recommend this book and the series.

Well done!

Sheridan is a temporary adjunct professor of psychology in a small local college, her husband is a local police detective, and there is a teenaged daughter. There's also a local animal shelter that plays a big part in everyone's lives. Sheridan has been involved in sleuthing a murder in the past and a lot of people are aware of this, so when husband is called out on the murder of a local businessman in the park the madness begins. There's the paranoid/excitable scientist friend who makes life interesting, questions about the dead man's business, and it seems that there is a drug supplier who is peddling designer drugs in the local schools as well as the college. Well done!
Voice artist Jeanne Pilgrim Mayo is excellent at making the differences in characters clear as well as adding more reality to the story itself.

good listen

Poor Max. I empathized with him and would have been a basket case if I were in his shoes. So many shady people!!! I love that this series highlights rescue dogs and hope it jogs anyone's mind when they think of their next furry friend. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Really entertaining

It really didn't matter coming in late into this series as it was just such a cozy mystery and a great standalone. It was an easy listen and I would really recommend this if this is your genre or if you want to try something new.

Up until recently I had never heard of cozy mystery genre but now really loving them.

Like an old friend

I enjoyed this book. This is book three in the series, so like the title suggests we have come to know and love the characters in this series over the course of the books. I especially like the time spent at the animal shelter with the dogs and the quirky humans, which makes this series so much fun and the reason I keep coming back. The mystery was interesting, if a bit complicated with all the different motives but it all gets sorted out in the end, nicely. I do think it helps to work your way through the series because past cases and characters are mentioned and only a slight background is given on them. Looking forward to the next mystery.
When a body is found in the woods, Brett is called in but things turn more complicated when it turns out he is more than just a lost hiker. He is Max's neighbour, a man he publicly argued with days before the murder. Max is an old college friend of Sheridan's and he is convinced he is about to be arrested and the only one now can calm him down is Sheridan. Max is more worried about his research than the fact a man is dead which isn't helping the situation. Then a strange package arrives while the police are carrying out a search and the sniffer dog goes mad. Could drugs be behind the motive? Sheridan is in the right place when the search for drugs spreads to the local schools and collages but can she ask the right questions to find the answers? Especially when she is in an accident and ends up on crutches, can she out fun the killer?
I liked the narrator. She helped to make the story captivating and enjoyable.
