My original Peak Season audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.Peak Season introduces Candace CW McCoy, an ex-cop, who gave up her job after she was forced to shoot a fellow policeman. She now lives with her grandfather “Pap” and is selling real estate in the tourist mecca of South Florida.Accused of stealing millions from his investors, Bobby Lee Darby was presumed dead until he appears in CW’s office demanding she prove his innocence. When CW declines, he kidnaps Pap forcing her into action. Aided and supported by a great cast of characters from her widowed friend Walter and his dog, to Oz, the nerdy but pretty hot IT guy, CW sets out to uncover the mystery of the missing money and to find her grandfather who requires constant care. As bodies start turning up, the local detective also starts showing an interest in CW and her involvement in the case.Peak Season was a thoroughly entertaining cozy mystery with a likable protagonist who loves motorcycles, country music and has several potential love interests. She was an excellent character helping out an old lady who was feeding the Florida wildlife as well as her neighbor, a single Mum and cop who was having problems with her ex-husband. My only minor criticism, I found it hard to believe how calm and collected CW remained after her ailing grandfather was kidnapped, setting time aside to go out, have drinks and carry on with all sorts of other things. She was a bit too leisurely and laid-back considering the circumstances.The author’s descriptions and insights into the South West Florida setting were really interesting and provided another, completely different side to the book. Overall, a really good mystery that kept you guessing to the end interlaced with humor and sharp dialog.The narration by Pamela Almand was excellent. She was a really good fit for the character of CW, and I was very impressed by her distinct and very authentic male voices. She had a great range of different voices and provided a clear and lively narration that was superb fun to listen to. There were no issues with the production.All in all, a great start to what promises to be an interesting, fun series, and I look forward to finding out what Jeff Widmer has in store for CW in the future.Audiobook provided for review by the http://audiobookreviewer.comThe best Peak Season Author Jeff Widmer go inside Ebook Detective CW McCoy surrenders her gun, her badge her and confidence after shooting a fellow police officer Moving to Southwest Florida to recover and care for her ailing grandfather, CW swears off violence until a fugitive kidnaps her family and she s forced to decide which side of the law she s on Set in the tony beach town of Spanish Point during the height of the tourDetective CW McCoy surrenders her gun, her badge her and confidence after shooting a fellow police officer Moving to Southwest Florida to recover and care for her ailing grandfather, CW swears off violence until a fugitive kidnaps her family and she s forced to decide which side of the law she s on Set in the tony beach town of Spanish Point during the height of the tourist rush, Peak Season marks the debut of an investigator confronting the most dangerous enemy of all her own fears..

  2. Peak Season may be a mystery novel, but it is also a study in character building and exploring the unseen sides of public life.Setting is a key character here, and Widmer gives readers who visit Florida as tourists or, even seasonal residents a bit of a look behind the curtain One of Widmer s great strengths is his ability to see details and make connections not visible to a casual observer, and in this book, that talent is on display Widmer is a master of uncovering quirky and dark details and [...]


  3. CW is all set in her new life She sells real estate now, after retiring from a life of law enforcement and is happy Until one day her old life comes back to confront her and threatens everything her new life holds for her A decent good guy bad guy story There are a lot of players in this one, and at times I got confused about who was who, but the pace was good and Widmer keeps you on your toes Decent writing, with few grammar mistakes but I m picky and a nice ending where everything gets tied up [...]


  4. Thank you to the author of this book for giving me a copy to read in return for an honest review.Peak Season is a crime drama in the point of view of CW, a former police officer who vowed never to be in the force or fraternising with guns again until she is dragged back into the game when her grandfather pap is taken This story was good, I found it a little slow to begin with because the scene setting was so descriptive, I could completely imagine where I was and what was going on I quite liked [...]


  5. Forced to shoot a fellow police officer, CW McCoy surrenders her gun, her badge and her confidence to take refuge in Southwest Florida There, in the wealthy tourist mecca of Spanish Point, CW sells luxury real estate and cares for her ailing grandfather But even in paradise, violence finds her like a divining rod.Declared dead by the courts, Bobby Lee Darby bursts into CW s office to demand the family friend clear his name in a scheme to bilk millions from investors When CW refuses, the fugitive [...]


  6. The best element in this book for me at least was the strong sense of place I haven t spent much time in Florida, but with all the references to driving biking along the Tamiami Trail, I ll have some idea what to expect Story is okay but characters feel derivative of Evanovhich s series with the tough heroine, multiple male possibly romantic characters, but with fewer hijinks Narrator okay, but the range of accents seemed to be beyond her repertoire, and the voices were inconsistent Lovely husky [...]


  7. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast I like a good mystery, with a bit of thriller tossed in, and C W McCoy delivers, as she chases after the bad guys Not a bad listen when trapped inside by an ice storm I would like to see where this author would take the character in another novel.
