Well written fun story with a boatload of quirky characters who quickly become real to the reader. The characters truly make the book both interesting and memorable. Nothing wrong with the plot, I just focused more on the characters.
It also felt like a nice visit back to NOLA because of the clear descriptions of the area.
I was fortunate to be able to listen/read, and I feel that Lee Ann Howlett did a fine job as narrator. Some might quibble about her minimal southern accent, but I feel that it is an blessing for those of us whose ears cannot entangle a deep drawl unless facing the speaker.
I was gifted with this book at my request in exchange for an honest review via AudioBookBOOM.

There are a LOT of characters introduced almost right off the bat & most scenes in the first 4 chapters had 5-7 characters in it at once, which was confusing and hard to keep up with. It was tough to discern who was talking when Alan, Neil, Glenway, Jackson, Billy, Goose, Imogene & Lt. Rodgers were all in one scene & I wasn't yet familiar with who was who. These were brand new characters to me, so that made it a bumpy start. However, once I understood the dynamics it became a little easier.
Imogene is a sassy & spunky senior and she's easily the best character of all! I could feel her personality through the wonderful narration & her dry humor was the best. The cast of characters are fun and all well narrated. The story & mystery is interesting, and the ending was satisfying. This has all the bones of a good cozy, but I still think it tries to juggle a few too many characters. This book was gifted to me in exchange of my honest review.
