Camino Island: A Novel - John Grisham

One of my least favorite approaches to storytelling is when the author spends a sizable chunk of the first chapter to give names and explain the backgrounds of all the characters. Takes what was already an unexciting opening heist scene to new thresholds of Meh.

If Walls Could Talk ★★★★☆
If Walls Could Talk - Juliet Blackwell

The only other cozy mystery series I’ve tried was not very satisfying, so I had low expectations coming into this one. But what a pleasant surprise! The author introduces each character with descriptions that drew a clear picture in my mind and also gave some hint of what was to come. I learned a little history and felt some of the MC’s enthusiasm for her work in restoring historic homes. The whodunnit was not especially difficult to figure out before it was revealed, but the journey to get there was plenty of fun.

 

Audio version, purchased via Audible. Although there’s not a lot of differentiation between her male characters’ voices, Xe Sands’ performance is very good in terms of pacing and emotion.

I'm really enjoying this. If the author is leaving clues about the murderer, I'm really not able to put them together.

Well. This is unexpectedly gory for a cozy mystery. I like it.

Preceded by a subtle fog of expensive perfume, the two women looked to be in their early sixties, blonde, well coiffed, and attractive. One tall and lithe, the other petite but with torpedo-style surgically enhanced breasts.
