The lucky woman who is the head ‘sleuth’ in Mt Abrams is Ellie Rocca, a forty-something divorced mom with daughters 24 and 10. Ellie has plenty of friends/neighbors/fellow walkers to help her jump to conclusions as well as put her nose where it shouldn’t be, all the while they are going about daily tasks dealing with parenthood and life in a town small enough that what happens on one end of reaches the other end before you make the 10 minute drive to there.
I enjoyed the main characters (which of course, we will most likely see in each book of the series), am happy that the book remained light hearted and free of violence (it all happens off page), as well as the fact I could hand the book to one of my school age nieces to read. My only con is that Ms Ernst seemed to introduce us to every acquaintance of Ellie, the main character, as well as a goodly number of townsfolk in this, the first book. After a few chapters, I ended up keeping a list of who was who and where they figured in the mystery. Other than that, while I had my own theories of the mystery solution, she threw in a red herring or two that took me by surprise when an actual murder occurred and the murderer/creator of the original mystery (where’s Lacy Mitchell) was revealed.
Definitely looking forward to the rest of the series. While I received an ARC in return for an honest review, I have also purchased the book because I want to keep it and the following books in the series on my Kindle for future reads when I feel the need for a quick who-dun-it wherever I am at the moment, be it on my deck, sitting in a doctor’s waiting room, or on vacation.
The only argument I have is with the stereotype romance that seems to crop up so often in cozy mysteries and spoils them somewhat for me. The one with the hot detective and the main character drooling over him at first sight and immediately they're a thing. I tend to skip.
