I recieved a copy of this book from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.
I liked this book very much. It is well written and the setting is well researched and it is easy to become immersed in 1920s America and in the lives of Daisy and her family and friends. I find that the human interactions and dialogue in this book, as in the others in the series, are a significant aspect of the book’s appeal. They are well done and keep the reader engaged. In addition, the plot in this book is light but entertaining and satisfying.
There was one thing that kept this from being a five star book for me, and that is the repetition. Some repetition is inevitable and necessary in order to bring new readers up to speed with the series. However, there was a bit too much irrelevant repetition throughout the story. For example, the reader is told that Vi is a wonderful cook, that Daisy is a first rate seamstress, that Mrs. P. is a basket case, that Frank is a pain in the posterior, and so on, more often than was necessary or enjoyable. To me, it slowed the story down.
Nevertheless, this was still a very enjoyable read, despite minor faults, and I recommend it. There is no sex or language in the book, but one of the significant secondary characters is gay, for those who have an issue with that. Personally, I found the positive portrayal of Daisy’s gay friend to be refreshing.
This is as good as it gets when it comes to cozy mysteries and the fact that it is set in the 1920s is even better.
I am very familiar with Pasadena, having lived in the area in the 1960s and being able to recognize streets and locales makes this even more fun.
The characters come alive on the page with the author's descriptions of their appearance and behavior. They are so believable one begins to think of them as friends as the series progresses.
This is the eleventh book in the series and by now, they are all old friends and I welcome meeting them again in this fun book.
Sure enough, they are right there on the scene when a librarian is stabbed to death and they find Mr. Robert Browning, a friend of Daisy's, holding the bloody knife.
Daisy, Sam, and Harold (dragged in by Daisy of course) are now off on another chase.
After the seriousness of the previous book which addressed some difficult topics, this one was a nice counterbalance, providing a good plot with our favorite characters, and a lot of humour.
Can't wait for the next one.
Oh, well, I'll just have to trust Alice Duncan to work things out.
