Murder on the Rocks (Mack’s Bar Mystery #1) By Allyson K. Abbott 


4.5 stars

Thanks to Tantor Media for giving me this audio in exchange for an honest review.

My Review:

This is another cozy mystery that I found entertaining. I really liked MacKenzie – Mack.  Mack’s character was well developed along with the storyline. Mack’s father was murdered outside the bar, and now, Mack owns and operates said bar. Unfortunately, another body has been found in the alley behind the bar, and now Mack must solve the mystery. She also has a suspicion that the murderer is also responsible for killing her dad.

This was a very fast read or listen as in my case. I really like the narrator and this series and am looking forward to book 2. I am also going to locate other books by the same narrator. If you are looking for a fast fun read without having to think or overanalyze, this one’s for you!

Mack’s Bar is one of those nice, friendly places where everybody knows your name. That’s great when someone’s buying you a round, but not so hot when you find yourself atop a list of murder suspects—with your fingerprints on the bloody knife!

Mackenzie “Mack” Dalton is a Milwaukee bar owner with a nose for trouble—literally. A neurological glitch has left her with extra perceptive senses. So when she stumbles upon a dead body in the alley behind the bar—the same spot where her own father was shot eight months earlier—she can tell right away there’s something fishy in the air. The lead detective thinks there’s a link between the two deaths, and he’ll need Mack’s help to sniff out the murderer amid the crowd of eccentric regulars. But when all the evidence points to her as the most likely culprit, it could be an early last call for Mack—and celebratory cocktails for a killer.
