In a small English village, retiree owns a bookshop and she and her best friend, Fletcher, are embroiled in all of the drama of the little town. When the body count starts going up, these two find themselves in the center of it all.
Ok, this one bills itself as a cozy mystery, but it is the most unique cozy I’ve ever read. If you are a fan of complex, unusual, morally grey characters… don’t sleep on this one. Everyone in it is witty and living their best lives. Who doesn’t want to solve the mystery of missing girls while you’re retired and running your own bookstore? May is a great protagonist that will really throw you for a loop. Fletcher, her bestie / roomie, is the perfect side kick and the two of them are so entertaining.
I did figure out the baddie quite early, but truthfully that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story. I was entertained on every page. My only criticism is that I wanted more canine capers since the four-legged friends are on the cover!
Thanks to Love Book Tours for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.
If a murder happens in your town, do follow the details of the evidence religiously? Would you try to get involved solving it?
