A local costuming guild has arrived in Astoria for a long weekend of recreating their favorite time period – the Regency. Think Jane Austen, sailing ships, high tea, a costume ball, and…a dead body.

When the guild’s nastiest member winds up dead in the drink, Viola is convinced it’s no accident. And after the husband of the deceased gets into a brawl on the front lawn of the town’s most well-known landmark, she knows something’s up. Armed with nothing more than a folding fan and her wits, she sets out to unveil the killer before somebody else winds up in Davy Jones’ locker.

Viola Roberts cozy mysteries:

  1. The Corpse in the Cabana
  2. The Stiff in the Study
  3. The Poison in the Pudding
  4. The Body in the Bathtub
  5. The Venom in the Valentine
  6. The Remains in the Rectory
  7. The Death in the Drink

Shéa MacLeod writes urban fantasy post-apocalyptic sci-fi paranormal romances with a twist of steampunk. Mostly because she can’t make up her mind which genre she likes best so she decided to write them all.

After six years living in an Edwardian town house in London just a stone’s throw from the local cemetery, Shéa headed back to her hometown of Portland, Oregon. She plans to live out her days eating mushroom pizza, drinking too many caramel lattes, exploring exotic locales, and avoiding spiders.

Shéa is the author of the Viola Roberts Cozy Mysteries and the bestselling Lady Rample Mysteries.

Narrator Bio

Yvette Keller’s first job as a narrator was reading aloud to keep her little brother out of trouble. Her favorite party trick is reading words upside down. Little kids need to see the pictures. Yvette lives in her beloved home town of Santa Barbara, using a lifetime of vocal stamina in her home studio. She produces technical VO industrials for Mesa Steps Consulting clients in addition to audiobooks. A lifetime of reading and speaking has proven one thing: Yvette loves stories. She is thrilled to be making books accessible and engaging through her narration work.

The Story:
The Death in the Drink is book 7 in the Viola Roberts Cozy mystery series – and can easily be read as a stand alone however, as there is enough backstory on each character that you will not feel lost. Once again where ever Viola goes someone is bound to wind up dead whilst she is around – you think she has some bad Karma but no she just has a bad case of being in the right place at the wrong I guess you put it. Her bff Cheryl has persuaded Viola to join her in some cozy Regency re-enactment aboard a ship, and when someone ends up overboard it soon becomes apparent she was pushed rather than an accident. Viola once again puts her detective cap on and with the help from Lucas and Cheryl sets about to find the murder much to the chagrin of Detective ‘Bat’, who by now should be used to Viola’s ways.

The Narration:
Once again Yvette Keller brings Viola Roberts and her motley crew of friends to life. She has been a dream to listen to for this series, as she manages to convey the emotions of each scene with just the right amount of what is needed. Yvette is brilliant as Viola, and the other characters, and she brings life to rather than just reading off the pages.

 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Yvette Keller. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
