And I thought
I really enjoyed the 4th book in this series. Murder in Black Tie
is a page turner.
I can honestly say this series keeps getting better and better and that this one is my favorite.
I enjoyed the chance to get into this one at the beginning and I have loved every minute.
Each book is written as a standalone so readers can jump at anytime and be drawn into the series!
All the main characters are interesting. From the main character
Olive to Jasper her really close friend that in each seems to get closer and closer to making a change in the 'best friend' relationship.
In previous books Jasper has only made fleeting appearances leaving Olive and this reader with questions. But in Black Tie he arrives in the beginning for the country party and then drives off into the sunset with Olive at the end after the mystery is solved.
There is some drama and a lot of surprises. There are quite a few suspects.
I enjoyed the talking bird that I expected had seen something and would give Olive and the police some answers.
I especially enjoy the setting and time period. The era of spending days with new and old friends at a country home is intriguing to me. Sara Rosett does an amazing job of describing the houses and the clothes making the reader feel apart of the story.
If you enjoy a great cozy read check out Murder in Black Tie and the series.
