That said however, there were no such fears in this novel. Her writing is crisp and clean and there are rich, fully developed, idiosyncratic characters. Our hero has her own issues and the even when we discover the 'bad guy or gal' (so as not to spoil) s/he isn't really pure evil and has some layers of complications. There's also some open ended opportunities for the thorough line of the main character so we know there will be sequels to her adventures (and I confess that I haven't read the first 3, so I may need to read those to catch up) and a progress on her personal development as a character, a blogger and a sleuth.
Additionally, the plot is interesting. We meet fascinating characters along the way (all fully developed) and each chapter ends with a powerful 'bet you want to know what happens next' event that propels you forward and ticks you off when you realize you have to be somewhere and can't start the next chapter.
In short, I would recommend this book highly. Even if I wasn't her sort of friend.
Josie leaves behind Boston for Austen Texas. Her boyfriend, Drew, is attending a medical conference. For Josie, it’s a chance for her to extol BBQ on her food blog and spend time with her hunka-hunka.
Of course, she hears about a decades old mystery and is compelled to investigate.
Funny, full of snark, and a joy to read.
The book was well-written and the characters were very clear in my mind, really bringing the action to life. With a nice, clean cozy mystery that didn't require you to think too much (though I guessed where the body was really early on!), the full details of the death of Mary Clare were still different than expected which was nice - a good old twist in the tale is always great in a murder mystery! As was the final scene for Josie and Drew - so sweet. And can I just say, I LOVED the character of Marion, and to find out he was based on a real-life person just made my day!!
Anyway, I really enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to anyone who likes a good murder mystery. And with it being a cozy book, it's suitable for anyone from teens upward too. Plus, as I said above, you don't need to have read any Josie Tucker books before to read this one, as it works perfectly well as a standalone, so you can just dive right in! But if you enjoy it as much as I did, I'm sure you'll be dying to read more of these books in future!
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
