Get Dangerous And Cara Will Need Every Bit Of Luck dangerous and Cara will need every bit of luck survive Narrator Michelle Babb does a fabulous job with each character that can tell which one it is before ou hear their name So good I was given the book in exchange for my honest review Review originally published at the end of the tourist season when the Alaskan winter gets bittier Caribou stumbles upon the corpse of an old woman who has lived in town for many ears Having the appearance of a suicide Cara feels there is something amiss and will try to find out who would have wanted to have this old woman killedI thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series and I wanted to continue with it We meet again the same characters in Coho Bay an atypical scenario for a cozy mystery but one that works really well I agreed with Cara that something smelled fishy about Mrs Nash s death so I got hooked to the story from the beginning There are several twists to the story that kept me entertained until the end One of the things that I like best about this series is how relatable the characters are It is easy to imagine oneself being part of Cara s family and friendsI am not usually keen on romance in books but I kind of enjoyed the competition between Dan and Frank and laughed out hard at some of the awkward moments when Cara has to interact with both I confess I didn t agree with some of her reactions but I partly understand her position I have a favorite though and I hope Cara goes for this one I don t want to give anything awayMichelle Babb is a wonderful narrator and here she gave soul to Cara with the right inflections at the right times She also interpreted exceptionally well the rest of the characters and the story flowed like water like any audiobook narrated by Babb She has amazing storytelling skillsIt was a very pleasing and enjoyable listening and my intention is going for the whole series I wish Alaskan fine arts dealer Caribou King has closed up shop for the season and is looking forward to a peaceful winter capped off by the birth of her sister's first child When she discovers the body of an Mrs Nash an elderly woman in the old Tilamu house Cara can't help poking her nose into the investigation Doc Tilamu served the people of Coho Bay all his lif.
