A Killer Necklace is a fun cozy especially suited for those who love fashion and romances in their whodunits. Although written by two people, the story is seamless. It’s hard to tell where one writer picks up and the other leaves off. The story is told from both Becki and Gina’s viewpoints (perhaps each author wrote from a separate viewpoint, as the voices are distinctive), along with a small selection of other characters. This adds to the suspense as the reader knows when Gina unintentionally places herself in grave danger.
Gina and Becki are terrific characters, as are their significant others, who are both in law enforcement. It creates an interesting dynamic and tension in their personal lives. I would have loved to have learned even more about the suspects or have their paths cross a little more, but still, this is a great summer read.
Urban readers will appreciate the inside look into rural Ontario life, while us in the small town will appreciate the tastes of the big city scene - especially the high-end designer looks that act as perfect accessories to the plot.
In true Agatha Christie style, the writers present several good prospects for whodunnit, and it is up to the reader to race the heroines in trying to solve it all before the final wedding scene in which romance (almost) triumphs over ultra-chic.
