    I enjoyed meeting the characters in the first book so jumped at the chance to listen to this book. So glad I did as I really enjoyed it. The characters are still a lot of fun and I love the way they play up there strengths and weakness, very amusing and I especially loved the big tough cops integrating the little old women. The mystery was good because a lot was going on and with the mix of home life and case work it was interesting to the very last sentence, I had come to the right conclusion as to who the killer was just as the story revealed it. The story does jump from different characters but I think this really works because the team could cover every angle of the case to get to the bottom of it. I will be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series.
    Wendy is helped on a case by a gentleman and she is ecstatic when the new friendship shows signs of being something more. On the way to discuss the next theatre show she and her blue haired troupe are planning to put on she comes across a body and is pleasantly pleased to become the police’s number one suspect. That is until they identify the dead man and then the daughter of the man Wendy has set her sights on becomes the prime suspect. Wendy hires her friends and colleagues at the M.Falcon detective agency to look into the matter. With Wendy’s acting skills, a hacker and an ex police man on the team it is not long before they uncover lots of reasons why a lot of people wanted him dead and a lot more celebrating is going on than grieving. Now they just have to convince the police to look in a different direction which proves to be harder than it should be.
    I liked the narrator and thought she user a wide range of voices for the characters although I am not sure they sounded as elderly as the author intended. Still enjoyed it and hope she reads the next book as well.
    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This is the second book in the M Falcon Mystery series. It is a standalone book with no cliff hanger ending. I have not read the previous book and had no trouble following the flow of the narrative or the characters motivations.

    I found the MCs to be likeable, feisty, endearing, and very enjoyable. There is some fun humor sprinkled throughout. The POV does change – which initially threw me a bit but once you get used to it, it’s fine.

    The narrator, Karen Gunderson, did a very good job. She made the characters very engaging, although they did sound a bit youthful.
