The books are set in the Columbia River Gorge in Washington State, a place you really need to see at least once. They are located in a small town, one in which you’d like to live, and full of the kind of people you would want for neighbors.
I wish there were an Imogene Museum, a hodgepodge of historic and hysterical; beautiful and, well, interesting; and valuable and “precious” artifacts. Meredith, who’d make a dear and fun friend, is its curator.
The setting is made real, the characters well and lovingly developed, the action engaging. The books go all too quickly, but each one leaves you satisfied, glad you went there.
There is mystery, hilarity and romance. That’s all I’m going to say. Find out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
The Tin Can series has great characters. They come alive on the pages. I could believe they and their houseboat community exists. Their storyline is well developed. The variety of plots is interesting. The plots move along at a good pace.
I just couldn't connect with there heroine in this book. She was too flat. I read page after page and didn't get any feeling for her. It took to long to get into the mystery of the story. While a museum might be a great place for a mystery, this book spent too much time unboxing chamber pots. I finally gave up and closed the book.
In a bit of a switch for a cozy mystery, Meredith doesn’t stumble over a dead body among the exhibits (although she does wonder about those chamber pots that insist on switching places when no one is watching). Instead, the story focuses on Greg’s disappearance, while Jones introduces a range of supporting characters who will, I presume, play their parts again in the six following books. The action doesn’t really heat up until fairly late in the book, but I enjoyed the build-up and the characters and setting—mystery fans will appreciate a dog named Tuppence rescuing a cat named Tommy—and I’m sure I’ll be reading more of the series.

The Imogene Museum is located in the small town of Platts Landing, Washington. I will never rival the New York Museum f Art, but it meets the needs of the residents. Curator Meredith Morehouse is upset with her intern, Greg disappears without warning and any note of explanation. She has also had a problem with a prowler pulling pranks. It seems he likes to rearrange the chamber pot exhibit. Meredith decides to spend some nights keeping watch over the exhibit to see if she can catch him in the act. Instead she witnesses a murder, knocking herself out when she trips extricating herself from her hiding place. Unable to tell the sheriff who the killers were or who was killed. Soon the entire town is looking for the killers and a body lying around unnoticed somewhere. Meredith wonders if the body could be that of her missing assistant Greg.
This is the first in a new series revolving around a small town museum and its curator. Rock Bottom is written very well and takes the time to introduce the characters, many of which have reoccurring roles in future books in the series. While a bit distracting for the story, once you learn how the characters interact and get to know them you will find the story moves at a quicker pace and is very enjoyable. Jerusha Jones gives readers a descriptive picture of the town so that they can imagine themselves there. I appreciated the lack of harsh language and gory scenes. The Imogene Museum Mysteries are truly the epitome of a cozy mystery which I look forward to reading more of. I rated Rock Bottom a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

The main protagonist is a nice person but the other characters in the book are not very interesting.
Je l'ai lu d'un seul trait parce que je voulais à tout prix connaitre la fin. J'ai acheté et lu le deuxième tout de suite et suis sur le coup de commencer le troisième.
N'attendez pas à trouver un "cozy" original et different, mais lisez un bon "cozy" avec plaisir.
