Review: Treasure, built of Sand (audio) by S.W. Hubbard

S.W. Hubbard: Treasure, built of Sand (Palmyrton Estate Mystery Series #6); Narrator: Janelle Tedesco; audible audio: 7h35min; 23 Aug. 2019


Another Man’s Treasure are hired to sell the contents of a beach house of a very rich family. Audrey is surprised, because the owners haven’t died, and don’t intend to move, and there are no antiques to sell.

Still, you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, especially if it comes with a weekend spent in splendid surroundings.

However, where Audrey is, trouble isn’t far–she is like a magnet for mysteries.

So she ends up solving the death of a youth, and taking care of quite a lot of other problems along the way.

My Thoughts:

There are few mystery series I thoroughly enjoy and haven’t found fault with so far, and the Palmyrton Estate Sale Mystery series is one of them.

Although it has been a while since last I was in Palmyrton (virtually, of course), I immediately reconnected with Audrey and her crew, and with the latest addition of her husband and his large family.

Like in the previous books, all the characters are very believable, as are their trials and tribulations.

The book is rich in small details (like the aftermath of a huge storm), which adds to its authenticity.

The problems not related to the actual sale are of a kind most people have some knowledge about, but only those concerned really think about–at least I had never given it any thought.

The twists and turns the story takes are great, and in the end, it all somehow interlocks, showing Audrey where she definitely doesn’t want to go.

I was very happy that Janelle Tedesco found the time in her tight schedule to narrate this audio book. As usual, she did a fantastic job! Her character voices are very easy to differentiate, you always know exactly who is talking. As the cast of characters is large, this is no mean feat, especially since she manages to give all known characters the voices the listener is used to from the previous books.

The combination of S.W. Hubbard’s brilliant writing and Janelle Tedesco’s fantastic narration is something nobody should miss out on!
