THE CHAMELEON WORE CHARTRUESE by Bruce Hale
The Chameleon Wore Chartreuse: A Chet Gecko Mystery - Bruce Hale
Set-up for the Chet Gecko Mystery series has Chet taking on a case at school where the little brother of a girl he likes is missing.  The doll does not give Chet all the info she has and he has to do a little detective work.  He gets a sidekick he didn't want with Natalie but it is a good thing she's there.  She's got the brains.
 
I enjoyed this book.  The world building is good.  It reminded me of a 1940's Film Noir movie.  I liked Chet's thought process.  He needs Natalie but eventually figures it out.  I loved the humor and cannot wait to read the rest of the series.

ONE BAD APPLE by Sheila Connolly
One Bad Apple - Sheila Connolly
Book 1 of the Orchard Mystery series has Meg moving to Massachusetts to remodel and sell her mother's aunts' home after she loses her job and boyfriend.  Her ex-boyfriend comes knocking on her door with an offer to have her putting a good word in for him with the citizens of the town where he wants to do business.  He ends up dead and she ends up a suspect in his murder along with her plumber.  Now they have to solve it before either or both go down for the murder.
 
I enjoyed this cozy mystery.  The world building is good as the characters are introduced and a brief outline is given as to who they are and where they fit in the town.  Meg and Seth are good characters and possible love interests.  The mystery was good.  I figured who it was only because he was a bad apple (pun not intended) but I needed the ending before putting it all together as to why.  And what a stupid reason to do it. 
It's a fun read and I look forward to reading more of the series.

MURDER, SHE KNIT by Peggy Ehrhart
Murder, She Knit - Peggy Ehrhart
Cozy mystery where Pamela tries to find where the kitten she's been feeding is hiding but finds a body in her bushes.  She and the victim have a past but so do many others in the town. 
 
I enjoyed this story.  I liked the characters.  I also enjoyed the small-town gossip and mind set.  The knitting group are older women whose children are raised.  They get together weekly to knit.  There is also Roland whose doctor told him to take up knitting as a way to reduce stress.  Not so sure if it has or has only added to the stress in his life.  There is good world building here as this sets up the series. 
 
The story was good but I missed the clues to help solve the mystery.  They hinted at the back of my mind but never came together until the murderer was identified and the story told.  I am looking forward to the next mystery in this series.
