After a car accident ended her medical career before it even started, Cassie moved to London on a whim, expecting to see the sights and live the typical tourist backpacker lifestyle. Instead she finds herself accompanying a French private detective, Violet Despuis, as they attempt to find out who poisoned four people in the middle of London.
Cassie's life soon includes this crazy detective, an ancient landlady with a curious past, a mischievous orange cat who likes going for walks on a leash, and a super-hot pathologist that Cassie is sure is out of her league. And they haven't even found the murderer yet....
The Cassie Coburn mysteries are a cozy mystery series featuring a Sherlock Holmes-style sleuth. If you want a light, fun, modern mystery featuring a San Francisco girl totally out of her element in London and a crazy French woman who happens to be very good at noticing things, then this is the series for you.

Really enjoyed both the narration and the story
Entertaining and fast paced book. Lighthearted murder mystery.
I liked the characters and would like to listen to more.
Disappointed to find there are no more books in this series available on UK audible though.

Practically perfect in everyway
Here's my bias: I am an American who has spent a lot of time in the UK; the main character is American who moves to the UK. The author does a great job highlighting the discoveries a person makes about the cultural and language differences.
This book is a very good updating of the Sherlock Holmes stories. The 2 main characters parallel Holmes and Watson but more than that, the author has captured Doyle's laying out of the mystery and its solving. Very well done.
The narrator added to the enjoyment of the book. I did notice she was sometimes a little gaspy (at the ends of words) but it did not detract from her performance. You can hear what I mean in the sample.
I did receive this audiobook via a promotional code through Audiobookboom (so I got it for free) but I just bought book 2 with one of my own precious credits from my annual membership :)

Entertaining, Great Start to a Series!
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written, had a great plot and wasn't a predictable mystery. The main character was likable and had a great backstory (although a little sad). It was a clean book (didn't have a lot of bad language, descriptive violence or sex scenes) so that was an added bonus. I loved Violet's character, she was kind of a Sherlock Holmes that is probably on the autism spectrum and has a French accent, which mad e her very entertaining. Patricia Santomasso did an absolutely wonderful job on the narration, she really added to the fun of the book. I would definitely recommend this book and I am planning on listening to the others in the series as well.
