Teresa Trent wrote this book and did a fine job of it. It was smooth sailing all the way through with great descriptions, believable characters, conversations, and several threads besides the murder running through it. It was a good read with a interesting plot, and super writing. It was also the first book I have ever read by Trent. I will probably read others by her in the future based on the strength of this books alone.
I received a fee copy of this book from the author, but was not asked for a review. I decided to voluntarily review and this is my honest review. Again, it was well crafted and well written. I recommend this to any reader who likes mystery with a touch of paranormal. It does not contain graphic sex, violence, or language. It was well edited, too. What's not to like? Give it a try!
I enjoyed this book more than I expected. I was sucked in by the appearance of Luigi the beagle - I’m a sucker for anything involving dogs, particularly beagles, and Luigi has all the typical beagle traits – and by Abby’s hidden talent. I stayed for the smooth writing, the detailed descriptions, the Colorado setting, the fully-developed secondary characters, and the interesting plot.
Abby’s secret talent is handled in a plausible manner. She struggles with accepting it, because she doesn’t want her new employer, or the town residents, to think she’s a whack job. I enjoyed watching Abby and Mitch stand up to their mother’s forceful personality, and watching Mitch find himself. I thought I had figured out the evil doer, but I was way off, and the ending was a complete surprise to me. This was a fast, fun read and I hope this turns into a series. I want to know what happens next to Abby, Mitch, and Luigi.
I thought the characters were very well-rounded and surprisingly complex for this being only the first book in the series. Often times, when the book is the first in a new series, the author leaves some background out to release in the other volumes and the characters end up somewhat flat and two-dimensional. These characters, however, fully came to life in my head. I'm certainly looking forward to learning more about them in the next book(s) in the series. I love all the side characters too, not just the main characters. Those add so much life to the book and the story. I had absolutely NO idea who the killer was until it was revealed and I love that in a mystery.
The setting descriptions were "just right" for me. There was enough detail that I could easily imagine the scene and yet I didn't feel like the level of description was overwhelming and boring. Also, the setting sounds absolutely beautiful. I love living here in Michigan, but Henry Park, Colorado sounds like a beautiful place to live.
The plot line moved along at a pretty steady pace. As I said above, I had absolutely NO idea of who the killer was until the author revealed it. I tend to lose interest in a book if I know "who done it" early in the story line, so I was happy to be surprised.
I highly recommend this book to those who like cozy mysteries. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to see where Gabby and Mitch lead us!
** I received a free ecopy of this book from the author. All opinions and conclusions are my own. **
Then, Stuff happened.
I got sucked in. I could not put it down. I was reading it everywhere. Any chance I could get. I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
And, I needed to know 'who done it '.
This author has an amazing style, one I don't see much of in today's publishing world. I applaud her; and I can't wait to read more of her work.
