The Whitstable Pearl by Julie Wassmer

23080942  This was one of the reads this month over at the Kindle English Mystery Club on Goodreads.  Pearl is returning to her dream of being a detective, but a private detective this time.  She is already the proprietor of a successful seafood restaurant, but she had once been on the police force.  Her new  client mentions the name of a local to Whitstable, someone Pearl knows and even though she turned down the case she ends up immersed in it as she stumbles over bodies.

Cozy-esque mystery with a lovely setting that is well-defined.  The book really does have a well-developed sense of place.  A few quirky characters are sprinkled throughout the town and there might be a hint of romance to come.  Pearl is intelligent and even though technically not a professional detective, she makes a believable sleuth with her background in police work.  Slow to start, but an enjoyable read with a surprise resolution.

    I don’t think I am going to have time to get this one. It sounds good though and I did see your offer on Goodreads about your extra copy. I’m off on vacation in another week.
