This review is for the audiobook version
Sabrina is married to David who is a detective and they have a 10 year old daughter. Sabrina runs the family coffee shop but also helps with police investigations as a consultant as she has a knack for solving cases.
It is just another day at work when Ryan calls in for his morning expresso but he looks like a man with a lot on his mind. However, it is the wrong time and place for a chat so he goes off to work. The following day he doesn’t turn up for his coffee and Sabrina acting on her gut instinct goes to check his home and discovers his dead body.
Then follows the investigation as Sabrina and David start to work their way through the suspects and clues.
This is an intriguing cozy mystery not too long so it is ideal for a listen as you walk book. From an audiobook perspective I found the ‘he said, she said’ a tad annoying but overall it was a good story and well narrated.
