Yogi Kate must clear her name of murder in this charming yoga mystery
 
When Kate Davidson gets an offer to teach yoga classes to wedding guests at the Elysian Springs resort, she jumps at the opportunity, even though it  means being forced to endure the wedding ceremony of the center’s two caretakers.

 Avoiding the M-word turns out to be the least of Kate’s problems when a wedding guest is found floating face-down in the resort’s hot tub, shortly after a loud, public (and somewhat embarrassing) fight with Kate.

 The police pick Kate as their number-one suspect, so she’s forced to team up with boyfriend Michael, best friend Rene, and German shepherd sidekick Bella to find the real killer. But they’ll have to solve the murder before the police arrest Kate, or her next gig may last a lifetime–behind bars.”

I chose to listen to this audiobook after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I had listened to Murder Strikes a Pose, the first book in the Downward Dog Mystery series, so I was happy to listen to the next book in the series. 

A Killer Retreat is another cozy mystery with Kate, a yoga instructor, as the main character. She and her boyfriend, Michael, are going to Elysian Springs resort for a working vacation. Kate has been hired to give yoga classes to guests of the resort and guests of the owners’ wedding. Her best friend, Rene, and her husband join them for the vacation. Kate’s dog, Bella, also joins them and she has turned out to be a great pet.

Not only is a member of the bride’s family murdered but Kate and Rene both have serious relationship problems while on this vacation. Both are too insecure in their relationships and need to learn to communicate with their significant others. So, while Kate is trying to solve a murder, she’s also trying to help Rene while avoiding Michael. Kate can be pretty fickle for a yoga instructor!

The narrator of Killer Retreat does a good job. There was only one time I wasn’t sure who was talking, but otherwise it was easy to tell. Her timing and inflection were good.

Although Killer Retreat is predictable, I enjoyed listening to it. If you like a cozy mystery, I definitely recommend it.
