    This was a fun quick listen. I did get a bit confused with so many characters getting introduced all in a short space of time but there was a lot of suspects to keep it interesting. I liked the small town community and the way everybody know everybody’s business. I did think it would have been better if the story was longer, as a few interviews happened without the listener being present. Also the characters could have been developed more with a longer story. It was good, what was there and I do think as the series continues the characters will become likeable the more you get to know them and it is a good start to a new series.
    Brenda has inherited her uncle’s business a Bed and breakfast and all the wonderful staff that runs it. She soon settles in but finds the idyllic settings isn’t the friendliest place in the world, all because of one woman lady Pendleton. Everybody in town seems to have reason to hate her. She owns all the properties in town, from houses to business and as a consequence she puts up the rent prices as and when she wants or feels like it and no matter who it hurts. So Brenda isn’t surprised when she ends up dead, someone was going to snap sooner or later. With everyone having a motive and pointing the finger the police turn to Brenda for help, she used to work for a private investigation agency in a big city. So her keeping her ear to the ground would be a big help. Who really did kill the most hated woman in town? Her own husband?, the police chief’s daughter? Her lawyer? The suspects seem end less.
    The narrator was okay bit seemed a bit breathless or the words were drawn out and I couldn’t always tell who was ment to be talking. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request by audiobooksunleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

    A well narrated beginning to a cute, cozy, seaside town…with a poisoning murder and many suspects.
