MYSTERY for ADULTS: 50% Off Murder by Josie Belle
Review - I loved this story! I really enjoyed the characters. They would be women I would hang out with. The back story of the main characters - widow, Maggie; new sheriff (and Maggie's old flame); and to a lesser extent the town shrew who pops up to make Maggie miserable - is doled out at a great pace. I figured out the killer without any trouble, but I so enjoyed the characters, I didn't care. I've already put two stars by the sequel (Deal to Die For, December 31) on my upcoming releases list. I can't wait for more in this series.
I was pleased to discover that "Josie Belle" is actually Jenn Mckinlay who also writes a library lovers series and a cupcake series under who own name as well as a decoupage series under the name Lucy Lawrence. If all her books have characters like these, I know I am going to enjoy them.
4 out of 5 stars
