This is my review of the audio version as posted on Audible:

Deena Sharpe comes back in yet another fun, fast-paced cozy mystery and the book is as entertaining as the previous installments:) This time Deena is accompanied by her sister-in-law Estella who believes she receives some messages from beyond the grave, which results in some funny turns in their investigation. As always, Deena finds a lot of clues and as many suspects, and she gets into trouble more than once - you'll really laugh at so

Signs and Redemption

The theme of this Cozy Suburb Mystery is signs and redemption. I liked reading this book in the series because it involved Estelle and Russell, Ms Sharpe's brother and sister in law more. There is a crazy scene with her husband, Gary too. It is realistic that in a small town you would see your former students in the course of an investigation and I like that Ms Thomas includes those encounters in these books. The Mayor is part of this story and look for Ms Sharpe and his path

I love Deena Sharpe! And I love getting to record all the Deena Sharpe cozy mysteries for Author Lisa B Thomas. SHARPE COOKIE finds Deena at a family auction to support her sister-in-laws efforts to get on with her life, when a murder occurs outside the hall. SHARPE COOKIE continues in the fabulous tradition of the first six mysteries: humor abounds, family quirks reign supreme, and the red herrings are flying like fish... or something like that. Lisa has a such a gift for the southern charm of ...more

Good mystery well written

Once again the author delivers a very good story line. The characters could easily be people who live in a small town near me. The answer to the mystery makes sense when it is revealed but it was not one that I had already figured out. The story is not so clever or well written that children are likely to be assigned to read it every year for the next fifty years, like To Kill A Mockingbird. But it might appear on summer reading lists as an acceptable choice. There is no

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it very entertaining. Deena Sharpe, a retired school teacher turned investigator, is looking after a friend's shop while she's on maternity leave, and is going through sleuthing withdrawal. That is until her sister-in-law's chauffer is killed at an auction of family heirlooms. Once again Deena is middle of a mystery, creating havoc as she goes. It is a great combination of humour and suspense. Looking forward to ...more

This is the 6th in the series and once again, Deena becomes involved in an investigation. This time it isn't plain old murder but also the theft of a coin collection. Her sister-in-law Estelle was auctioning off some of the things left her by her mother and the coins were taken by accident to be auctioned. Before she could correct this mistake, they turned up missing. It took Deena a while to figure this one out and surprised the heck out me of me to find out who was behind it all. Love these st ...more

Sharp and company

Deena is at it again, her brother and sister-in-law are robbed at an event and their shofer murdered. Deena is on the case but to many suspects and to few alibi leads them on a merry chase all about town and into the killers line of sight. A good cozey mystery to curl up with any time of the day or evening.

Murder by coin!

During an auction, part of a coin collection is stolen and in the process a chauffeur is killed. Leaving it up to the police just isn't in the books and our two heroines are going to find out who did the dirty deed, with the help of Estelle's late mother. Who really did it?

Sharpe Cookie (Maycroft Mystery #6) was another great read by Lisa B. Thomas. Deena finds herself looking into another murder when her sister-in-law becomes a suspect. Deena does a good job of trying to find the truth before anyone else gets hurt. I can't wait to read more by Lisa B. Thomas.

I enjoyed the characters whom you can find in a small town. Their personalities are believable. Hopefully another book in the series will appear in the future.

Good book!

New writer to me. I liked reading this story! I did not see the ending coming and was pleasantly surprised. Cute characters!
Short, not v complex cozy mystery. Primarily read to fill in a gap in a challenge
Would read more by the author in a similar situation, but not racing to seek them out.
