About the book...
It's not often I find myself immersed in a cozy mystery, yet alone the ebook version of it, but once I started this one, I couldn't put it down.
Hazel Grace and her motley crew of book lover's and friends have a little more life experience than your usual suspects, I mean cast of characters, in most other books of this nature, but that makes it that much more endearing. You care about Hazel as you would an aunt or parent. You find yourself laughing at their outbursts (did someone order a coffee in the face? I distinctly remember someone ordering a coffee facial...HA!) because not only are they laughable (the getups for their Moonshine Inn "date"...HA!), but more often than not, ENTIRELY SPOT ON! The antics they get into, aka mischief they stir up (taunting murder suspects, and disgruntled relatives you only just found on your family tree), are enough to make anyone's head spin, but when you add in the unexpected flavor of danger, you've got a recipe for success...and succeed is one thing for certain this story did!
In the end, I must say, Hazel Grace is one smart cookie. Is she perfect? By no means, especially when we consider the random ill decision now and then which very well might have the curtains close on her life story sooner than intended, but for now at least, from the start of the book, we've got her full attention, piqued her curiosity, and sent her creative mind into overdrive...just the way we like it! As the pieces start to fall into place, you'll find yourself trying to solve the murders (yes, that would be plural as in more than one....eek!) along with these spritely ladies, but managing to guess the culprit before the big reveal is gonna be a task and a half. The author does a great job playing keep away without getting off track, and the injected humor feels natural (and provides oh-so-much fun!).
Recommended read for Cozy Mystery fans as well as those readers who just like a good story where the big action happens off the page but you still get to revel in the results of those unseen events.
