About the book
As the obituary columnist for a small NC mountain newspaper, Tori Mulligan is no stranger to death. But when a real-life murder mystery lands at her feet, she discovers that everyone has secrets—some more deadly than others. The sticky situation is further complicated by a handsome widower, an adorable dog, and a slew of sketchy characters. Can the sassy southern sleuth find “whodunit” without adding herself to the body count?
And I thought
I am always happy to meet a new Author.
Especially when a brand new series is included.
It is always fun to get in at book 1. That doesn't happen often but I am glad it did this time.
Author D.W. Earnhardt gave this reader a fun few hours of page turning enjoyment.
It's even better when your turning the pages at page 1 unable to put the book down.
The main characters are easy to get to know. And the townsfolk and close friends are fun and like able.
The sketchy characters are just that. Sketchy.
The storyline and plot were believable and I really liked it that the new Vet/Partner in town didn't become a suspect. Which would have been predictable. Because it has been done several times.
And Tori the main Character for once wasn't a suspect.
But the author gives several clues and provides several suspects and motives that might keep the reader asking questions and guessing.
I enjoyed the ending. I was happy with what happens to the dog on the cover.
The cover was what drew my attention.
I enjoyed that the recipe for White Russian Tea was included at the end.
And now I wait for book 2!
I can't wait for the next mystery and see what yummy recipes from Jo's Diner are included.
It is super easy to award 5 stars!
My review will appear on Amazon and Good Reads.
