In Death by Scones by Jennifer Fischetto and Elizabeth Ashby, Riley Spencer is having a grand reopening of the Cinnamon Sugar Bakery in Danger Cove to celebrate the fact that her grandmother has formally handed ownership of the bakery to her. Then someone plays a mean prank on her by sending out an email with Riley’s name on it offering free samples to the recipients of the email.

    2. Death by Scones :: Jennifer Fischetto An interesting cozy mystry. There are lots of possible suspects, twists and turns, and bits of romance. It ends with a few surprises.My only two complaints were there was too much fashion description. It distracted from the story. Also too many zodiac mentions.The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Melissa Meshey's young voice fit the story.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this revi [...]

    4. I received this audiobook for an honest review. I almost gave up near the beginning of the story because of the narrator. Please, authors, publishers, whoever chooses the narrator, please keep in mind: A bad narrator can make a great story seem like it's not. If a listener can't get past the narrator's lack of skill, this looks bad for the story overall. I hate leaving bad reviews when the majority of the issues were on the narrators part. I'm sorry but the narrator did a horrible job. I see on [...]

    5. Review originally published at: lomeraniel/audiobookreRiley Spencer inherited the Cinnamon Sugar Bakery from her grandmother. On her first day as the boss, one her customers dies by anaphylactic shock due to a peanuts allergy. Curiously, the Cinnamon Sugar bakery is nuts free so Riley suspects something fishy at hand, and she is decided to find the murderer.Cozy mysteries is one of my guilty pleasures, so I couldn’t let this one pass. The story was entertaining and the characters were interest [...]

    6. Death by Scones by Elizabeth Ashby and Jennifer Fischetto Narrated by Melissa MesheyRiley Spencer’s first day as owner of Cinnamon Sugar Bakery has started off strange. Just after opening Riley finds out there has been a hoax email sent out to several customers promising free food. She quickly devises a plan to embrace this crowd with smaller bite sized samples.

    7. Cinnamon has made it official and turned the keys of the Cinnamon & Sugar Bakery to her granddaughter Riley. Riley is excited for the change and happy to be the new owner. She plans a celebration for the first day. Then her cousin comes running in and warns her that a huge crowd is coming expecting to get free food. Someone, not Riley, had sent out an e-mail inviting people to a free sample party. Then the town hermit, Nathan, comes in and makes a cryptic comment to Riley. Once the crowd die [...]

    8. I could not get into this book at all. I did not finish it.First off, I listened to this as an audio book, and I don't know what the publisher/author were thinking with the selection of the person who narrated this. She sounded like she was 10 years old, which simply did not work for the story. I couldn't buy the voice I was hearing with the story it was telling. They did not go together at ALL, and it continually distracted me from the story.Normally, I wouldn't judge a book by an audio narrato [...]

    9. If you are inordinately detail oriented you will appreciate the minute descriptions of every single change of clothes our heroine employs as well as comprehensive information on everyone else's appearance, outfits, furniture and surroundings. All that attention to her surroundings makes her quite the observant detective. Melissa Meshey's clear, light, chirpy voice [AUDIO] perfectly understated the descriptions as she ran us through the multi-layered plot, doing a good job with vocalizations of v [...]

    10. I was given this audio book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review. I had a really hard time with the voice of Melissa Meshey. She sounded like a kid and the main character was not a kid. I almost didn't finish the book but I thought that would not be fair. So that said the story was okay. For a mystery it seemed to have way more romance than mystery solving. This is book 3 and the first book in this series that I have read. That was not a problem the author does a great job [...]

    11. I want to visit Danger Cove! Any of the books stand alone very easily, but reading more of them adds layers. The emphasis in this one is the bakery, the new owner, Riley, with her vintage clothes, there are recipes, and, of course, a totally unexpected murder and the investigation. Lots of twists and a few red herrings, and an assortment of romances make this one interesting read. Melissa Meshey is perfect as narrator here. She has the perky bouncy persona just right! Turns out that I had an ebo [...]

    12. I enjoyed Death By Scones even though it is a pretty simple cozy mystery. Riley, the new owner of the bakery, finds a Mr. Dearborn dead in the bathroom after her grand re-opening. The police think she is responsible and she knows she isn't the mayhem ensues. There are no great ah-ha's in the story, but you will get a recipe and a lot of descriptions of Riley's clothing. Melissa Meshey's voice worked well with the story.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntaril [...]

    13. WOWThis one really surprised me. I usually have a pretty good idea who the killer is by the time it is revealed but this one totally took me by surprise. I just didn't see that coming. I hope we see more of Riley in the future books.

    14. Good mystery series especially for a cozy mystery. Actually don't know "who dunit" for quite a while and keeps you guessing.

    15. Another fun and entertaining entry in the Danger Cove Mystery series! I really am enjoying seeing all of these talented authors come at the 'amateur-sleuth-solves-a-small-town-murder' premise from different angles, with very different heroines. Riley Spencer is the protagonist in Death by Scones (Cute title!), and her story begins with the grand re-opening of the bakery she's taken over from her grandmother. Riley hopes to do her grandmother proud, but unfortunately finds that there's a double o [...]

    16. Danger Cove has another winner in Death by Scones; I really loved this one, too! I love the idea of a series of interconnected series, lol. Death by Scone is a fast paced mystery with an intriguing and complex plot and a support system for Riley that I love. While I do enjoy a good thriller sometimes, it is the character driven stories that good cozy mysteries present that draw me back time and again and the author in this Gemma Halliday Publishing project do just that.When her first day as owne [...]

    17. I was sent an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, thanks to Gemma Halliday Publishing .I will never get tired of saying how much I love the Danger Cove series, each book has been a joy to read, finding out more about the residents and Danger Cove itself.Book 3 centres around Riley the owner of Cinnamon Sugar Bakery, well she is having a grand reopening as she has just been made official owner by her Grandmother and namesake of the bakery Cinnamon who has decided to enjoy her [...]

    18. I'm nutty about this new Danger Cove sweet suspense! Neither Riley Spencer nor her grandma ever used nut products at the Cinnamon Sugar bakery, so how did the reclusive former actor Nathan Dearborn get the nutty scones? The sheriff & deputies are convinced the death was accidental, but the bakery's nut-free reputation is at stake. Business id dropping off, even with al her new exotic recipes. Riley can't seem to keep her mind on the problem while the rest of her is involved in fantasies abou [...]

    19. Great Series!This is a great series; This is the third book in the Danger Cove Mysteries. Each book in this series is written by a different author. I love how each author made Danger Cove into a wonderful town, but brought out each of their different styles. Riley has recently purchased the Cinnamon Sugar Bakery in the small town of Danger Cove. During the grand opening a body is found and the cause of death is caused by a peanut allergy. So the police think that Riley is a suspect since she ba [...]

    20. Death by Scone is the latest Danger Cove Mystery. I love this series. Each story has a different style. This book revolves around Riley. She has taken over your Grandmother bakery after her retirement. On her first day as the new owner, a man dies in her bakery. Everyone thinks it’s an accident at first. He died from an allergic reaction to nuts. But Riley knows something is wrong, her bakery is nut free. Also, someone send a bogus email that day offering free items at the bakery. So to protec [...]

    21. I enjoyed this Danger Cove mystery even though the bakery made me hungry for a cinnamon roll! The characters were interesting and the mystery certainly wasn't predictable! I liked using characters from other books so that the reader feels like they are a part of the town. I especially liked the advice that sometimes it is what you don't see that matters most. I recommend all the Danger Cover books in order so you know who the different townspeople are. But if you chose to just read one book, the [...]

    22. When Riley Spencer took over the Cinnamon Sugar Bakery for her Grams, she didn’t count on a murder in the mix—make that the bakery bathroom. As the police begin their investigation, Riley decides to do some sleuthing/policing of her own to save her bakery, her reputation, and her life.Jennifer Fischetto has whipped up a winner with Death by Scones. The characters are as sweet and savory as the lemon pesto muffins and the plot is as heart-stopping as the Death by Mocha brownies. I can’t wai [...]

    23. This is the second book in the Danger Cove Bakery books and they just seem to be getting better and better. Riley has taken over Cinnamon Sugar Bakery from her Grams, who has just retired. On the Grand Re-Opening Day, a man is discovered dead in the bathroom stall and the police seem to have Riley down as their prime suspect. On top of this, one of her two best friends, Jared, has moved back to town and her boyfriend, Will, is very jealous. I was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an hone [...]

    24. Danger Cove Mysteries is a series written by various authors writing about different characters in Danger Cove. In this book we meet Riley Spencer, the new owner of Cinnamon Sugar Bakery. On opening day she finds a body in the bakery's bathroom. This leads Riley on a quest to find out what happened and she also learns some startling facts about her own life. I have really enjoyed all of the books in this series and can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

    25. This is a terrific story that will quickly grab hold of you and won't let go! The story is well written, with a solid mystery and a few heart pounding moments. The characters are well developed and likable - people you'd like to get to know. This is the third book in the series and can be read as a stand alone. I look forward to reading more about this town and its residents.I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    26. 'Death by Scones' is another great book in a great series. The storyline was great and the way it played out took me by surprise. I like when the bad guy in a story isn't obvious. The characters were great. Riley is a great lead with a colorful personality as well as her vintage wardrobe. The story was enjoyable and held a lot of different aspects that came together well. A great add to your tbr list. I look forward to reading the next book in this series, 'Danger Cove Mystery'.

    27. Story wandered a bit but had a logical, though somewhat strange outcomeI found most of the chapters too long, and I believe that contributed to the feel that the story wandered around some. I also thought part of the ending was odd. That said, I really liked the relationship between the deceased's nephew and the main character. I also liked that events in the past played a part in this novel's plot.

    28. Everything a cozy should be - it's all here - twists and turns, red herrings, subplots, a touch of romance, small town backdrop with family and friends and a not-so-easily solved mystery! My favorite of the series so far - thank you Jennifer Fischetto for a thoroughly entertaining read!

    29. Cookies, Cakes, and SconesGood read! Our heroine is a baker and reading about her interesting treats makes one want at least a cookie. Fast moving plot and a smash and exciting ending.
