"Croaked" has everything I want in a mystery: Wonderful kooky characters, a plot that keeps you turning pages, terrific dialog, humor, great local color, ...oh yes, and murders, too. I enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommended!

With characters developed from real quirky locals, the author builds a wonderful mystery where every step is interesting(and important), and every character is authentic and credible. In addition to a great read, it was fun to recognize real places in the small towns where I've lived. Now, driving the roads Ms. Verburg describes, I can almost see the characters moving about to the tune of "Croaked." I am confident in recommending this book. I can't wait for her next one!

Just finished 'Croaked'...LOVED IT! What a romp ! Craft & Art ...WOW! Gotta admit, was glad Carol gave me a moment to catch my breath (end of ch.9)...didn't realize I'd been holding it so long. Terrific character development...kept hoping my favorite 'people'
weren't 'X'...
There were so many things 'hinted at' but undeveloped ...Hope this means there are more in "the works"... any more coming, Carol?
PLEASE !!!

Cape Cod has a natural appeal for anyone who loves ocean beaches and a sense of history, and when you throw in plenty of descriptions of good food, a heroine named Vivaldi, and a puzzling death, you have the ideal ingredients for great reading. I enjoyed every twist and turn in the plot as well as the quirky characters who kept showing unexpected relationships and strange secrets that kept me guessing right up to the final revelations. My only regret is that we didn't get to know more about Edgar Rowdey, so I'm looking forward to the next book to meet him again.

Purchased the book a few weeks ago for my Kindle. Owning a small cottage on the Cape, I love to read books based on the Cape. This one did not disappoint. Even enjoyed a few of her street references, Willow and 136, all in Hyannis. Really hard to put down. Great characters, good story line. Fun read. Hoping she does another Cape based mystery.

This book is a real page-turner with many moving pieces, wonderfully fey characters, and delightful surprises throughout. Great Cape Cod color, terrific fun, and a must for anyone who loves to curl up with a good mystery.

What an engaging and mysterious romp amongst these quaint and quirky folks living in a small Cape Cod town. The food is to die for, or is it? Author, author, I want more!

Very much the page-turner, indeed. I love the characters, it's delightfully funny, and extremely well-written. Looking for more from Ms. Verburg!

Verburg's pacing, quirky characters, and writing style make "Croaked" a fun read. I got the feeling Verburg laughed as she wrote this delightful mystery! I enjoyed it immensely!
