Another great book by Ms. Cahoon. ( )

A good read, good character development but weak on the mystery side. ( )

Jill, Jill, Jill. You are silly. But I found you less annoying in this book, slightly. Your boyfriend Greg is amazing and is very much like my husband. You need to lock that down, stat.

Jill finds herself smack in the middle of a murder, and is once again the prime suspect. Seriously? I think there are 400 people in this town, and Jill is always stepping in it. Add the Scooby Doo-style wrap up with the villains at the end and I had to deduct a half star.

However, I am a sucker for a quick mystery, so I will of course read book 3. Feel free to judge me! 2 1/2 stars, rounding up to 3 because I love Greg and her dog Emma. ( )

Jill inherited a house with an old stonewall in the backyard that could be the remains of an old mission. She’s running into roadblocks in getting it declared a historic landmark from real estate developers and the local politicians. Her biggest opponent is found murdered and she becomes the prime suspect. With the help of her boyfriend, hunky police detective, Craig, her aunt, her daughter, coffee barista and cop, plus her daughter they are determined to prove Jill innocence and find the killer. ( )

First Thought when Finished: Mission to Murder by Lynn Cahoon took the mystery I loved from book 1 & dumped the pesky miscommunication issue. TOTAL WIN!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Susan Boyce / Length: 8 hrs and 12 mins

Susan is a great fit for this series. She has a good mixture of fun, mystery, and spunk! This is a must do on audiobook for me series.
