Murder for Nothing
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No, because while the descriptions of life running a tea house are sweet and informative, the mystery itself is too far-fetched to be believable. Police officers do NOT let civilians lead criminal chases, much less without back-up a la Old West Cowboy style. Trying not to give spoilers: The apprehension of the criminal does nothing to actually describe motive, nor do we actually hear anything from the criminal at the crucial end except for

Was Scones & Bones worth the listening time?
Only 50% of the time, for descriptions of running the tea house and the events they sponsored.
Any additional comments?
This book started off well, but the mystery wasn't focused and finished up too quickly, conveniently, and unbelievably. At the end, I wondered if it couldn't have been totally rewritten from Chapter 3 down a different plot line, one that was mentioned as key to the mystery but then ignored.

Really dumb mystery
I was told that this was a good mystery series. I chose this book because of the plot. This book is in the middle of the series, so the heroine has been at many crime scenes. She tampers with the crime scene by absently picking up a clue, ruining the chain of evidence. When she realizes it, she withholds the evidence; instead, she interferes with a police investigation. The plot also has some major unresolved holes.
