About Jennifer Oberth

Jennifer Oberth is a sweet, gorgeous, intelligent gal with a great sense of humor. She likes long walks on the beach.

Oh, this is an Author Bio? In that case…

Ahem,

Jennifer Oberth is a sweet, gorgeous, intelligent gal with a great sense of humor. She likes to take long walks on the beach where she thinks up delicious ways to murder people and give them motives, means, opportunities and fake alibis.

Don't randomly ask her what she's thinking because she'll tell you. She doesn't want a repeat of that time she was with a group of strangers and she blurted out her frustration at her car. "How on earth am I expected to kill somebody in the woods without being seen when I can't turn off the automatic headlights?"

She didn't know why they shrank back and gave her a wide berth the rest of the evening.

She didn't know why no one offered advice to get around this tricky annoyance.

It's a coincidence she then started writing cozy mysteries set in 1875…

Jennifer Oberth (the sweet, gorgeous, intelligent gal with a great sense of humor) has two cats (Copper & Outlaw). When she's not at work, cursing the computer when it doesn't work, she can be found at home, cursing the computer when it doesn't work.

Review by: Jennifer Alexander on Dec. 08, 2011 :
This is such a fun story to read and I laughed out loud throughout! Less then 20 pages long (in the e-pub version) I was able to read it while my 2 year old slept and by the end of it had me wanting to read more stories with Ella and her friends. As it is a short mystery the story moves quickly, but the writing is sharp and flows well. The twist in the end surprised me and as an novice sleuth, that does not happen very often, which was very impressive! I highly recommend this story and I am sure Jennifer's other stories are just as enjoyable.

With tongue firmly in cheek, Ella runs her wedding day, a murder investigation, and everyone else she comes in contact with. As well as being funny, the story offers a good mystery puzzle which isn't always easy in a short story. I think we'll be seeing more of Ella.

With a smart, sassy heroine, there was no way I wasn't going to like this story. Jennifer Oberth does a great job of developing the main character (which is not always the case with short stories). Additionally, the plot moves along quickly, the dialogue is realistic, and the mystery is, well, mysterious. Dontcha hate it when you figure out the end waay before the character does? Fortunately, this story isn't predictable or trite in anyway. I enjoyed reading it and so will you if you enjoy mysteries, Mrs. Marple, or female law enforcement officials.

Charmingly written, light-hearted mayhem. If it was TV (and maybe it should be) it would be a cross between a murder mystery and a situation comedy.

This was a very enjoyable story. Humorous and light-hearted. The dialogue moved along nicely and draws you right into Ella's "blissful" wedding day. I can't wait for more stories from this author.

I loved this story. I loved the writing and it had me guessing until the end. In a lot of mysteries you can tell exactly where the story is going, but not this one. Ella is a character you will fall in love with and want to read more about.

Review by: Jackie B on Feb. 01, 2011 :
Angela Landsbury meets Ms. Marple... This was a fun short read of less than 30 pages... Ella Westin combines a dry wit with a keen mind and is a character that was interesting to share an adventure with... I think that in the short amount of words and pages that the author used this was a tale that fleshed out nicely and had a pretty cool twist at the end... I have to admit I deduced the "villian of the plot" near the end but not fast enough to spoil the entire experience....
I also would like to see what other adventures there is in store for us, if any, starring Ella Westin!
