A Fine Fix: A Trudie Fine Mystery #1 by Gale Deitch (2013) Narrated by Kristin James (2014)

Publisher's Summary

Things couldn't be better for Trudie Fine and her partner, Zachary Cohen. It's the first big job for their catering company, A Fine Fix, and everyone who's anyone in the Washington, D.C., area will be at the Schwartzes' backyard Mexican fiesta. With the tables set, the food prepared to perfection, and the Mariachi band sizzling, Trudie is mellow as a Margarita smoothie... until a dead body is discovered floating in the pool. When Zach is arrested as the prime murder suspect, Trudie sets out to clear him and find the real murderer. Life gets spicier than a jalapeno pepper when she realises she's the focus of three men's affections, including the unnerving detective handling the case. Soon, however, Trudie is reaching for her favourite knife, but not to chop vegetables. Recipes included!

Audio book length: 5 hrs and 54 mins


A fantastic start to the series. 
I really enjoyed this fun mystery. A faster pace than the traditional cosy and filled with much more suspense and drama make the Trudie Fine series a real page turner.

 Trudie is a delightful character and a breath of fresh air. The mystery had me guessing and I happily trundled along with her as she investigated the murder and fell into one scrape after another. 
I loved the humour in the story as Trudie wrestled with the romantic attentions from three men whilst trying not to hurt anyone's feelings. The final chapters were exciting and suspense filled which had me at the edge of my seat. 
I listened to the audio version of this book. The narrator did a great job and I couldn't wait to get back to listening to the story after each time I had to press the stop button.
