Murder, She Slopes: A Penning Trouble Mystery by Rachael Stapleton, narrated by Ellen Latzen is the series to follow for all you mystery lovers looking to add some clean, fun...murder...to your collection! In this episode we meet up with Penelope Trubble again of Bohemian Lake (from Book 1 - which is FANTASTIC, by the way). It's a week before Christmas, and Penny's ex-boyfriend has been accused of killing the wife he married a month after he and Penny split up. Unenthusiastically, Penny agrees to travel to the wintry resort to help find the real murderer and, hopefully, clear his name. Like any good mystery, though, things are never that easy. As the plot thickens, the list of suspects grows, and more bodies begin to pile up, making everyone at Sleighs & Slopes Resort not quite who they seem. 'Tis the season...right?!?
Of the three storylines in the Bohemian Lake series, the one following Penny Trubble is my absolute favorite. These hilarious, real-to-life characters are a hoot! Rachael Stapleton's way with dialogue is fabulous and, as a result, immediately pulls the reader/listener in. Filled with suspense, red-herrings, twists, and surprises, this unpredictable outcome leaves you saying, "Wow, she is good!" Yes, my friends, Rachael Stapleton is one talented author! I cannot wait to hear what comes next for Penelope Trubble!
Narrator Ellen Latzen couldn't be more perfect for this series. She sounds exactly like I would expect a young woman of Penny Trubble's age to sound. The way she speaks in her "matter-of-fact" tone makes me feel like she's someone I've known forever. I own the Kindle copy of this book, too, and I fully understand that there are those who prefer reading to listening, but for me, Ellen Latzen's performance is well-worth the credit in this case. So many times, depending on the storyline, I feel that narrators turn a good mystery into a silly and unbelievable hunt for a killer. In this case, however, the narration made the storyline real and believable. I loved her performance, and I can't wait to hear her again in Penny Trubble's next adventure!
Murder, She Slopes: A Penning Trouble Mystery by Rachael Stapleton, narrated by Ellen Latzen deserves 5 out of 5 stars across the board. From the entertaining and unpredictable storyline to the portrayal of all involved, this is one series you don't want to miss. Although it could be considered a stand-alone, you will enjoy it much more of you start at the beginning of the Bohemian Lake Mystery Series. The best part is getting to know the characters in all three Bohemian Lake storylines because they make appearances in each other's books. Before you know it, you will feel like you live there, too, solving cases right along with them. Happy listening!
Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. :-)
She comes across a skeleton causing a panic, and a lot of teasing while she's investigates a rare coin's disappearance from the early 1960's. During the course of her investigation, the uncovers at least two murders, and a cover up from some theft's that had also happened at the same time as the coins loss.
This is the second series that Rachael Stapleton has set in the town of Bohemian Lake. Although it has some of the same characters as her Haunted House Flippers, this one is set at an earlier time frame.
There is a good bit of humor, well developed characters, and a solid plot line.
Don’t judge a book by its cover.
Fun, murder, a winter resort with tree houses, detective Bumble, heroine Trubble, and a clueless ex boyfriend accused of murdering his money grubbing wife of a few months. And then there are the locals. Come for the mystery, stay for all the fun!

But it doesn't remain by that one murder, more are to follow and the plot sickens. Exiting and full of twists and turns.
Really enjoyed the twists and turns and well written characters.
Ik vond het een leuk verhaal en de personages kwamen goed tot leven. Het was makkelijk om je te verliezen in het verhaal. Dit was mijn eerste boek van Rachael dat ik las , maar er zullen er beslist meer volgen !
