My Review

Taking Notes on Murder:  A Fiona Quinn Mystery #9 was the perfect length audio book for my recent vacation trip that involved about five hours of driving. The audio quality was great and it made for a much less boring drive than just listening to music. The claim of a 2005 suicide having been a murder made for a gripping premise that kept me interested until the end trying to guess if it was murder or suicide and if it was murder then who the murderer was.
