Sintesi dell'editore

Samantha Washington has dreamed of owning her own mystery bookstore for as long as she can remember. Now that she's preparing for her store's grand opening, she's also realizing another dream - penning a cozy mystery that's set in England between the wars. While Samantha hires employees and fills the shelves, her pen has quick-witted Lady Penelope Marsh, long-overshadowed by her beautiful sister Daphne, refusing to lose the besotted Victor Carlston to her sibling's charms and stepping in to solve the murder of one of Daphne's other suitors....

But as Samantha indulges her imagination, the unimaginable happens in real life. A shady realtor turns up dead in her backyard, and the police suspect her - after all, the owner of a mystery bookstore might know a thing or two about murder, right? Aided by her feisty grandmother and an ensemble of colorful retirees, Samantha is determined to close the case before her store opens. But will she live to conclude her story now that the killer has a revised ending in mind for her?

Not for me

I don't want to give a negative review because this book might be om for other listeners. I couldn't finish it because was too light and fluffy. Samantha and her family are too nice and everything comes to easily for them. I also don't like bullying. Teasing someone with a name from childhood isn't funny.

Two stories in one!

A good little contemporary cosy mystery with a nice historical cosy tucked inside. Our heroine Samantha Washington is a young widow involved in a small town murder while getting ready to open a bookstore and simultaneously writing a British cosy set in the 1930s. Whew. That’s a lot to keep up with.

I liked the characters. Sam has a complex family, loving in spite of their flaws. She has a problem with reverting to old behaviors around them which I find believable. Her grandmother’s gang of seniors are delightful - fans of Jana DeLeon’s Gertie and Ida Belle, take note!

Sour note: calling people by hurtful nicknames is bullying when it involves children and teens, and it is still bullying when dragged back out in adulthood. Stop it. The person being attacked in this way has done absolutely nothing to deserve it.

I will definitely go on to other books in the series.

A fun story

A good plot with interesting characters. Dawson and the nephews could have been developed a bit more. I enjoyed the added mystery of the bookshop owner's first manuscript. I listened to the audible version, and while the female voices were fine, the male voices were over dramatized and artificial.

Disappointing views on weight

I haven’t completed this book—hope to find a reason to continue. Was totally offended by author’s description of the physical sizes of her and family members. I could not believe she actually described the “thin” members as being the preferred size and her “plump” size which she shares with her Nana as being negative. Use cultural, fat-shaming stereotypes much??! Please avoid contributing to negative body images.

Good Story, Stiff Narrator

The narrator was very stiff and over-enunciated, she could have been much more relaxed with her reading. Her different "voices" were a bit unnecessary (for male and female characters). The story was great, but sometimes hard to listen to.

Narrator made me crazy.

The story was very elementary and predictable, but okay for a quick listen, but the narrator spoke as if to children in a second language. The voices of the men were all the same. I can't recommend this one.

Enjoyable but a little disappointing

I like the characters and will give the next installment a try, but this one was really not what I hoped for. I thought the story within a story would matter or help the main character think through the case at hand, but honestly I think Burns might have just had 2 mystery stories that didn’t fill a full-length novel and so smashed them together. I hope the main character being a mystery novelist contributes to later books in the series.
