Review of Old World Murder
Old World Murder - Kathleen Ernst

  

Chloe is trying to get over a bad break up and she is hoping that coming to work as the curator of Old World Wisconsin. On her first day an old lady come to talk to her, but Chloe can't help her. She couldn't just give her back a relic she donated and didn't even know where to begin looking for it. Then the old lady dies in a car crash and Chloe feels bad. She feels like it might have been her fault and so she tries to find the bowl.

 

She is suppose to be working on other projects and not everyone is happy with her trying to find a bowl that belonged to the old lady since she is dead. She just can't keep from trying to figure out what happened to it. It leads her to finding out some information about the bowl that might make it worth a lot of money.

 

Her boss is not real happy with her and she could be on the way to losing her new job so she needs to try and find out what is going on before she gets worse.

 

Chloe is a pretty decent character though a bit head strong when it comes to certain things. She just a got a new job and really should have been concentrating on it even though she felt bad. Roelke I think might take some getting use to as sometimes I just wasn't a fan. He has some anger issues which isn't good for a cop, but he knows it and tries hard not to let that part out much. He just rubbed me the wrong way sometimes but he wasn't a bad person.

 

It has a good mystery and I didn't guess whodunit but I was looking in the right direction. :)

 

The Narrator

Elisa is one of my favorites and she always does a great job with cozies. Her male voices are not always great but they are okay.

DUE OR DIE by Jenn McKinlay
Due or Die - Jenn McKinlay

A puppy is in the returned book bin. The husband of the new President of the Friends of the Library is murdered. A nasty nor'easter hits. It is up to Lindsay and her friends to find the killer before he/she strikes again.

I like these characters. I like their interactions and the teasing Lindsay gets about Sully. The story was good. I did figure out the who and part of the why. I needed the ending to fill out the rest of the why. I'll be reading more of this series.

Review: Killer Party by Lynn Cahoon
Killer Party (A Tourist Trap Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

A good quick read. Jill is up to her sleuthing ways while also juggling school, her business, her aunt's health, and her relationship with Gregg. This time, Gregg is not the lead investigator, but he enlists Jill's help in finding his friend's killer. Lots of red herrings, but the killer was there all during the investigation. Still recommend this cozy series.

Thyme of Death
Thyme of Death - Susan Wittig Albert

I really thought I was going to love this book and series. This book is the first book in the series but it is the last one I´m reading. I just couldn´t get into it. It seemed silly to me but I think I have just gotten tired of cozy mysteries and need to read more serious mysteries. This book just had too many details that wouldn´t have happened in real people land. The main one for me was when the paramedics came to check on the lady that called 911 and didn´t speak to the dispatcher. They went rushing into the place and then decided they needed to try to resuscitate her. They had to go back out to their vehicle to get the equipment. They wouldn´t have gone in their without what they needed to save someone´s life. Then, China is walking around crime scenes and no one stops her. She is telling the paramedics and police about her theories about what happened and I´m picturing them all like goofy saying, ¨well okay!¨ I know what it is really like and none of that would have happened.

Cozy Mystery Suggestion

If anyone is looking for a cozy mystery for Halloween Bingo or just because and you want to support a fellow Booklikes member, check out Demon Spirit, Devil Sea. Its the second in Charlene D'Avanzo's Mara Tusconi clifi mystery series. I haven't read it myself, but as many of you know I do social media for Charlene and am always happy to recommend it. 

 

Also if you read it, please review it on Amazon. Either of her books really. Pretty please. :D 

 

It's available for Kindle here: http://amzn.to/2xYKkGI

 

If nothing else, it's a bingo square! Just saying!
