Review off “Drama Queen: A Nicky and Noah Mystery” by Joe Cosentino and Narrated by Michael Gilboe

Drama Queen: A Nicky and Noah MysteryDrama Queen: A Nicky and Noah Mystery by Joe Cosentino
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful mystery set at a small liberal arts college in Vermont. Tremeadow College was founded by a gay couple and still draws a lot of gay and lesbian students, staff and faculty. I did not know that when I agreed to listed to review this book. It was a pleasant surprise, mainly because most of the books I have read that feature gay characters always seem to feature graphic descriptions of sex.

I really hate that in a book whether it be a gay or straight couple. I know how it works. Been there, done that. I don’t need to read about it books that I am reading for entertainment. Happily, Joe Cosentino did not go there. The most graphic this book gets is a shared kiss between Nicky and Noah from time to time.

Cosentino does a wonderful job of writing a mystery that keeps the reader guessing right up until the end. I never did guess the killer, and I kept making guesses. I loved this story and want to listen to more like it. The characters are well developed and very believable. There is no need for suspension of disbelief.

This book got some major grins from me as Nicky and Noah go about trying to prove Noah’s innocence.

I have never listened to a book narrated by Michael Gilboe. He was very believable as a crime solving college professor. Most of his voices are very good. Only two that I didn’t really care for. I didn’t find them believable at all. I only gave him 3 stars because of the two voices.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review
