Summary

A vicar with a taste for sweets. A nun with a knack for trouble. A deliciously diabolical crime....

When Annabelle meets her friend Mary, she expects tea and cake. What she gets is a double helping of murder.

Armed only with a note, a disappearing dart, whispered rumors, and a love of sweets, this quick-thinking, quick-footed holy woman must piece together the clues, pacify a dogged detective, and find a killer...before she and her friend both wind up in jail.

Part Sherlock Holmes, part Miss Marple, Annabelle is a new kind of sleuth, with an appetite for cakes and crime. If you love solving puzzles, then this suspense-filled yet endearing cozy mystery is just for you. Annabelle's jaunt around London will keep you guessing until the very end!

Death at the Cafe is the first in a furiously fast-paced, funny new series featuring a young female vicar whose passion and dedication to her parish are matched only by her weakness for cake.

A sweet treat

This was a sweet treat in more ways than one and I really enjoyed it. I am not very religious and was a little bit worried that this book wasn't for me but I have read a few of the authors other series and thought I would give it ago. I needn't have worried there is no preaching and in fact it is just a fun mystery. I liked the chatty vicar and think the author is going to have a lot of fun with this character. The mystery, while there wasn't a great deal of suspects it was cleverly worked out and I was surprised by who turned out to be behind it all. The story ends with a chapter from the next book and I think I know what I might be listening to next.
Annabelle is looking forward to meeting up with an old friend but before she has the chance, her friend gets caught up in a murder investigation by becoming the prime suspect. Mary was meeting someone to try and gain funding to help her hospital in Africa but a woman passes Mary a note claiming the lady she is to meet is in danger, before she dies. Mary and Annabelle rush off to save a life but find themselves once again being questioned by the police. Annabelle knows her friend isn't responsible for the death and the only way to prove it, is to find a killer.
I liked the narrator. She has a bubble voice which made the story fun but it did mean Mary sometime got annoying as she was A light high pitched.

A fun cosy crime

I’ve enjoyed the Reverend Annabelle Dixon Mysteries by Alison Golden for a while now, so I was pleased to hear Death at the Cafe on audio.

Death at the Cafe is a fun cosy crime story, featuring the Reverend Annabelle Dixon early in her career. I really like Annabelle, she is kind and compassionate, as well as being keen not to let an injustice happen.

The mystery itself is baffling, at least to start with, as people keep dying in front of Annabelle and Mary. I enjoyed being along for the ride as Annabelle investigates, and it gets quite exciting towards the end (can’t say more without spoilers).

The narrator is not my favourite, her voice unfortunately tends to make the female voices sound rather babyish, especially Mary. However, once I got used to it, and wrapped up in the story, I no longer noticed. I thought she did a good job on the male voices, and the various accents of the more minor characters.

Overall, this was a fun cosy crime, and the beginning of a very enjoyable series.

I was given a copy of this audiobook, my opinions are my own.

Pleased to finish

I only finished thiscas I'd used one of my credits. The narration is painful. The sickly sweet voice of Mary is awful. I guess he story is probably OK but definitely one I will not purchase or listen to again.
