~Fun, light, mystery
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 28, 2019
~As with any fictional super sleuth, the main character was way smarter than any of the other people in the story…and while we all knew she was not really guilty, the author did an excellent job of weaving the story to make all the evidence point toward our main character.
~The story moved along at a good pace. It made for enjoyable reading. This is a light murder mystery, so there is a touch of romance included.
~While I say this is a light mystery, I was completely surprised when the actual murder was revealed…I did not see that coming!
~I do not like to give spoilers…however, there was one point in the story while the investigating Police Officer (the main character’s father) was gathering evidence and statements at the crime scene which spoke very clearly of the humor of the book.
“…My dad went back through his list. “So let me get this straight, Miss Hoffman. You are saying you think Betsy here was responsible for killin’ Miss Scarlett in the library with the candlestick?” I stifled a giggle. It was highly inappropriate to laugh when a human life had just been taken. I heard another giggle behind me and saw Pattie trying to hide it in a cough. Whispers went up behind her as Ruby’s crowd, who had snuck in behind Pattie, repeated the joke and then more muffled laughter.”
~Definitely recommend this book for a relaxing weekend read.
