Summary

When Houston reporter Lucy Resnick cashes in her retirement to buy her grandmother's farm in Buttercup, Texas, she's looking forward to a simple life as a homesteader. But Lucy has barely finished putting up her first batch of Killer Dewberry Jam when an oil exploration truck rolls up to the farm and announces plans to replace her broccoli patch with an oil derrick. Two days later, Nettie Kocurek, the woman who ordered the drilling, turns up dead at the Founders' Day Festival with a bratwurst skewer through her heart and one of Lucy's jam jars beside her...and the sheriff fingers Lucy as the prime suspect.
Horrified, Lucy begins to talk to Nettie's neighbors, but the more she gets to know the townspeople, the more she realizes she's not the only one who had a beef with Nettie. Can she clear her name, or will her dream life turn into a nightmare?

Great New Series

This was an enjoyable cozy mystery with well plotted and realistic characters and an interesting story line. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

Performance the biggest issue

Would you try another book from Karen MacInerney and/or Teri Clark Linden?

I would try another book from Karen Macinerney.

Would you be willing to try another one of Teri Clark Linden’s performances?

I might, but to see if this performance was typical.

Was Killer Jam worth the listening time?

This was simply too long - much story repetition and redundancy. It dragged. The story was fun and compelling and the characters were mostly interesting. A little too much forced coincidence happening to allow the mystery to be solved,

Any additional comments?

The reader has a couple of annoying habits that made the listening difficult. For one, whenever the sentence ended with 'I, he or she said,' the read was read the sentence, then pause and "she said." or "I said." That pause was incredibly annoying.
The other, bigger, annoyance was the reader's use of different voices. This is normally not a problem, but she made many of the adult women sound like 6 year old girls. I wanted to scream, listening to this. If they weren't little girl voices, they were husky voiced cowgirls.
The reader's voice is pleasant but the voice acting was unnecessary for the story and terribly distracting.
