Publisher's Summary

Meet military spouse, soccer mom, professional organizer, and savvy sleuth, Ellie Avery!

Moving four times in five years has honed air force wife Ellie Avery's packing and unpacking skills. But moving with a newborn daughter and husband Mitch in tow, during a heat wave, is enough to make her turn to chocolate for comfort. And when Ellie finds a local environmentalist dead on the side of the road, her instincts tell her this was no accident....

Ellie snoops into the activist's suspicious demise, only to realize she's getting closer to the killer...maybe too close! This first Ellie Avery mystery launched a series that continues to win listeners' hearts.

Sigh

This is the first book written by Sarah Rosett that I didn't immediately like. The plot was okay but I didn't like the lead character. Plus the plot is kind of slow. I might get the next book to see if it improves.

very slow moving

the narrator is very slow almost drug like tone. she talks in an off handish way that makes the listener think she is drugged up

the story line is great especially if one has any military experience.

Fabulous writing and narration to match!

I could not stop listening ~ completed the audiobook in two days! The story is captivating, the characters engaging, and the plot twist compelling! Gail Shalan’s narration is perfection ~ always appropriately nuanced and never overdone, and I totally believed each and every character delineation employed. And Ms. Shalan made “Ellie” my favorite heroine! I, for one, will buy every one in this series which she narrates! Impeccable!

Not Ms Rosett’s best book.

Usually her books are well researched and engaging. This one had a serious research issue and felt a little flat.
Bee allergies are not the same as wasp allergies. Rarely do people have both.

horrible

first 30 minutes nonstop complaining that was enough for me. I will be asking for a refund.

This was a miss for me

I love Sara Rosett's other books so I was excited about this. As a military spouse (and mom of several children) I was intrigued by the characters and setting. I didn't feel like it represented my military experience, much, if at all. Ellie, the main character was a pretty big downer. I was kinda irritated with how much she complained (ironic, since that appears to be all I'm doing in this review). But...I do love the twists and turns and the way the author wraps things up.

The performance was ok. Her voice was very relaxing.
