Reviews

A very unusual murder among friends.


(5 stars)

I greatly enjoyed this sort of "cozy" mystery. The reporter-turned-detective had a likeable and intelligent personality. I never would have guessed the ending. The reader has a pleasant voice and excellent pacing in his manner. Thank you Roger Melin and Librivox.

VERY GOOD


(5 stars)

Just the kind of mystery we need more of. There is a plausible plot, well developed; there are shifting elements of suspicions; there is a deserving victim; and there is satisfying ending. Add the great reading by Roger Melin, and we have a winner.

Finally, a mystery. But, oh darn it, it wasn't that capturing. I did enjoy the ending. I gave it another chance. I really enjoyed it this time. I want to say "thanks" to Mr. Melin for my mystery fix.

cute little story


(3 stars)

The chances of any of these chances happening in a non-Providential, miraculous way are a million to one, but it was still an entertaining read. Props as always to Roger Mellin!
