Death by Committee by Carole B. Shmurak
Length: 4 hrs and 2 mins
Series: Susan Lombardi, Book 2
Publisher: Carole B. Shmurak
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another great quick mystery in the series. I really enjoy the characters and the steady flow of the story.
Susan is once again in the middle of things and can not help her curiosity! I love her hubby Swash, he is one of my favorite supporting characters.
The mystery this time wasn’t to complex, definitely solvable if you are on the ball. There are also a few extra things going on in the lives of the supporting characters.
This is a clean mystery and gore free. It moves along at a great pace and keeps your attention throughout. It is a really quick read, filled with plenty of intrigue. I am just a bit disappointed that there are many loose threads at the end. Perhaps they will flow into the next book, but they are troubling. I hate having questions left unanswered.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Barbara Benjamin-Creel. She does a great job with the movement and flow of the story. She has a fabulous pace that goes along with the action of the story. I enjoyed her energy and consistent voices. Her men are just enough to be clear that it is a man talking but not so far that it is a caricature. She is a great choice for cozy mysteries!
I can not wait for the next book in the series and hope that it will be a touch longer!
