Reviewed by Alyssa Elmore for Readers' Favorite A young woman teams up with her new business partner to clear her ex-husband's name of murder in the charming, cozy audiobook, A Hole In One (A Glass Dolphin Mystery) by Judy Penz Sheluk, narrated by Kelli Lindsey. Arabella Carpenter, owner of the Glass Dolphin Antique Shop, reluctantly agrees to host a Hole-In-One contest with co-owner Emily Garland. Emily insists the competition is the perfect opportunity to publicize their store. The stakes are high if there is a winner, but Arabella feels that the publicity could do their little antique shop in. Emily argues that nobody will possibly make such a complicated shot. Arabella doesn't get the chance to find out. Soon after the contest starts, Arabella stumbles on a dead body, halting the event. With little knowledge of the deceased, Arabella is quick to accidentally lead the detectives straight to her ex-husband, who was acting as Course Marshall during the time of the murder. Begging for Emily's assistance, Arabella is determined to find the killer and clear her ex's name before she loses him forever. With the help of Emily's former investigative reporter skills and Arabella's tenacity, they are confident that they will succeed; until they uncover more dark secrets and deceptions hidden in Arabella's ex's past. Now, they have a responsibility to take the information to the police. Will the duo be able to clear Arabella's ex-husband? In clearing him, who will the guilty party be? A Hole In One (A Glass Dolphin Mystery) by Judy Penz Sheluk is the second novel in the Glass Dolphin Mystery series. This is an exciting and fun cozy mystery, and I especially enjoyed how quickly the characters grew. It was refreshing to encounter characters that actually grow in a cozy mystery! The settings were interesting and the cast delightful. This audiobook was a pleasure to listen to. The narrator was the perfect performer for the story. Kelli Lindsey gave an extra dash of personality to the characters and settings. Performed with humor and suspense, Ms. Lindsey's narrative style was a refreshing addition to this audiobook.

cosy-mystery, Canada, amateur-sleuth, small-business, women-sleuths, murder, whodunit When your ex husband is also your former business partner and you live in a small town, things can get really messy when he is the prime suspect in the murder of the man who deserted his family many years ago. Add in an insatiable curiosity, an iffy reputation for being around murders, friends of all sorts, interesting finds in antiques, and more twists and red herrings than there are RCMP and you have a book that is too hard to put down. The publisher's blurb gives some good hints, and no spoilers here. ENJOY! Kelli Lindsay is a great narrator who adds good things to an already fine bit of sleuthing. I requested and received a free audio copy from the author courtesy of AudioBookBOOM.

I really enjoyed reading this who done it, and it kept me guessing right to the end, and then there were more surprises. While this is the second book in this series and my first read, you won’t be left in the dark, all is caught up for you, and more. The author gives us a bit of romance, mystery, stalking, and bodies do seem to pile up. We are also collecting some wonderful antiques, and that is the catalyst to pull a lot of the characters together. If you enjoy a really good mystery this one will keep you page turning right to the end, and then you will want more. I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

I enjoyed my introduction to the Glass Dolphin Mystery series. Riding in at book 2 didn't leave me with questions. This book is written as a stand alone so if you missed book 1 like I did you'll be fine jumping in a book 2. The reader is taken on a journey to find the answers, the truth and to clear Arabella's ex's name. The ex ends up being the prime suspect in a murder that takes places at a Hole In One fundraiser. Since he was the fundraisers Course Marshall he was in the right place and the right time to be the trigger puller. Arabella and her assistant and co-worker Emily begin investigating a trail that leads to a weird kind of group and an Elvis impersonator that has a few answers but are they enough to finger the trigger puller and get Levon off the hook? Hole In One was a great mystery that just might keep the reader guessing. You'll definitely keep turning the pages to see how it all plays out. I received a complimentary copy.

Does getting divorced mean you don’t like each other? It surely means you don’t want to get back together, right? On the other hand, it surely means you’d help one another out of a little predicament, right? Unless maybe it’s murder. This is a fun, easy read. There are some very sweet unexpected moments in this book making it have some twists and turns as well as reminding us there are good people in this world too. A nice change. It doesn’t involve much golf if that’s what you’re worried about. The golf and the hole-in-one pertain to a charity to help kids, well…and a big prize for big kids too. Other than being just a really enjoyable read, I liked this book because the main character, Arabella, owns an antique shop called The Glass Dolphin. This was not a book filled with chapters full of tips on antiques but it does touch on them and I enjoyed reading about a few very collectible pieces. This is a community where everyone knows everyone and rumors fly like bats in the night. The characters were likeable while not especially dissimilar from other books of this type. That sounds as if I don’t think the author developed her characters well and that is not my intent. I’m only saying there were the expected characters as there are in many books of this type; your handsome cop, an ex-husband, a business partner, a jealous woman, and your community gossip. Nonetheless, I can tell you I didn’t put it down for a minute til the very end. This is Volume 2 of a series titled “Glass Dolphin Mysteries” and I see Judy Penz Sheluk has really good ratings on many of her books. Let’s just hope she keeps writing more entertaining ones like this. **This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
