The characters are cute and I've enjoyed both stories so far, but I feel like the author's been sloppy in her research, which takes away from my enjoyment.
I like Maggie and feel like I got to know her much better in this second book. I love Vera Mae. Her snarky attitude makes laugh each time she appears. Her mother, Lola, is quirky and definitely over the top when it comes to her career and her stories regarding Hollywood. I enjoyed the references to different movies and celebrities that pop up when Lola makes an appearance. I also found the background information of how movies are made to be fascinating.
I do confess that I wish Maggie would stand up more for herself with Rafe about her profession and forensic psychology. I get that he's handsome and drool-worthy but her former profession shouldn't be slighted by him. Ms. Kennedy would you please have Maggie take him down a peg or two?
The mystery was quickly paced and there were a few twists; but I did catch on to who the killer might be before Maggie. However, I wasn't clear on the "why" until the reveal. Since I am so late starting this series, I've already got book #3 lined up and ready to go.
This is the 2nd book in the series, but can definitely be enjoyed as a stand-alone mystery. I enjoyed seeing a little of the forensic psychologist Maggie. Maggie is still doing her talk show but you get to see how she deduces who should be a suspect in the murder. There are several twists and turns and red herrings that Author Mary Kennedy includes in the story to keep you guessing whodunit. Kennedy includes a hint of a possible budding romance in the partnering of Detective Rafe and Maggie. I also loved seeing Maggie’s mom, Lola, in her ideal environment. Lola is such a fun character and seeing her element as an actress was great.
I recommend this book to cozy mystery lovers. I was provided with a copy of this book with the hopes I would review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and in no way influenced by anyone.
When Maggie goes to the movie set of Death Watch to visit her mother Lola, she is asked to be a consultant since she used to be a forensic psychologist when living in New York.
Maggie thinks it will be fun and interesting, until can murder occurs right in front of her while a scene is being shot. The weapon a prop gun.
Detective Rafe Martino tells Maggie to stay out of the investigation and let the police due their job.Something that is difficult for Maggie to do.
A lot of suspects to question as more information comes out about the actress that was murdered.
Twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end.
I love Maggie's relationship with her mother Lola.
Also love Lola, fun character that had me laughing even during a murder investigation.
I received a copy of this book and voluntarily reviewed it.
In Reel Murder, Maggie is on the set of a movie production. When the leading lady, Adriana St. James, turns up dead its up to Maggie to put her sleuthing skills to work and find the killer.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Dead Air, that I decided to read the second book in the series straight away.
For me, Reel Murder did not disappoint. Maggie being on the set of a movie was really fascinating. The movie production felt well researched and I learnt a few things about movie production that I didn't know.
I like how clinically minded Maggie is. She doesnt just stumble onto the murderer like some sleuths, but she sits down and sketches out who had motive, opportunity, etc. As someone that was still trying to guess the murderer towards the end this was very much appreciated.
I really enjoyed this mystery. The part of me that loves the romantic side of cozies loves the romance between Rafe and Maggie. I won't give too much away but I'm definitely looking forward to the next book to find out what happens next.
