Probably the most entertaining and humerous audiobook I've reviewed this year. Bezu, the lovely Southern Belle, is entrancing, but her lodgers are, let's face it, a pretty peculiar bunch. Her house is falling down around her, the bills are piling up, yet must be paid, then along comes Cat, her friend, in need of a roof over her head.
With Southern hospitality stretching to the limit, beautiful Bezu finds room for her dear friend under her leaky roof. Now, with a house full to bursting, the adventures begin.
Swept into the story from the very start, I wanted to listen in one sitting, it is pure entertainment, I even laughed aloud, so be careful if you listen in a public place!
This story has everything a lighthearted read should have, murder and mystery seasoned with humour and a little romance.
If you are in need a few hours of good old enjoyment, then this will do the trick. Loved it, I have not read the first Chubby Chicks mystery, but I'll certainly be on the look out for more from the pen of Lois Lavrisa.
Karen White could not, in my opinion, have done a better job than this wonderful narration, she simply tells a story so well. I loved the Southern accents, and all the characters are so clearly defined that one is never left to puzzle "who's that again?"
Karen never gives cause to detract the listener from the story, it all flows beautifully without interruption. Tip top job!
