Finished book 1 for Dewey’s Read-a-thon. This is book 2 in a mystery series that I found when the first book was chosen by the Cozy Mystery Corner book club on Goodreads. I was one of the few members who liked the first book in this series. I found the mystery well done in that book and this one.
Just like in the first book,, I like the main character, her sister and her sidekick. Her love interest, Nick runs hot and cold, but it made him interesting to me. Her sister’s boyfriend, Joel was a little too stereotypical Hollywood con man This book connected several crimes, an old robbery and a couple new murders. There were lots of clues and red herrings. The issue with this book, like the first, is that sometimes the dialog is unnatural or stilted and in a couple places, I actually had to go back and reread to understand what I had read. Still, I think there is enough good about this books, well plotted mystery and interesting characters, to make me want to continue with it.
On to a visit to my local book shop and then back for more reading!
First of all, the comment box is right next to your twitter widget and I couldn’t help but notice the username. A fellow fanfic reader! Huzzah! 😛
Didn’t know about this Cozy Mysteries goodreads group. Will have to take a look at it, ’cause it sounds great. And I need some extra motivation to finish reading the Lord Peter Wimsey series…
ANYway, happy reading (and book shopping)!
