Audiobook Review: Murder Hits Close to Home by Meredith Potts

With Hope Hadley’s latest murder investigation, things turn personal. How could it not when the victim is one of Hope’s friends? The question becomes, can Hope push her emotions aside long enough to track down the killer?

My Review

I chose to listen to this book after receiving a free audio copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

In Murder Hits Close to Home, Hope Hadley’s brother finally has a girlfriend. Her sister is murdered, and Hope and her brother are on the case. There are several suspects, but no twists or surprises and the murder is solved quickly.

The narrator does a good job at pace and timing. She also changes her voice to make the different voices obvious.

This is the fourth book I’ve listened to about Hope Hadley. They’re very short, so I’ve started listening to them when I don’t have enough time to finish a full-length novel. If you’re looking for a super quick cozy murder mystery, this one is pretty good. One of the previous books I listened to by Meredith Potts, Murder of a Movie Producer, was tmy favorite because it had a surprise ending.

About the Author

I love my two adorable cats, taking walks on the beach, and baking cookies. There’s nothing quite like soft-baked chocolate chip cookies. Or chocolate in general. I do love my sweets. Or watching a beautiful sunset while watching the ocean waves crash against the shore. Is it any wonder why I write cozy mysteries? Please check out one of my lovely books. There’s over 50 to choose from. The Daley Buzz series is a great starting point.
