Editorial Reviews


Just what a Cozy Mystery should be...
I needed a book to 'cleanse my palate' after a very intense, and, sorry to say, boring read. This book did the trick. The mystery was interesting, the characters were well developed and I really enjoyed the humor. Plan to read more of Sonia Parin's books. - Donna, Reviewer
A "Cozy" Cozy Mystery
This is one of the most adorable cozy mysteries. Had me on the edge if my seat wondering if Mira was dead or on another adventure! Love the island and the rest of the characters; especially Jill....she was a good "play off" for Eve. A must read!!!! - Lea, Reviewer
Comfy reading
Fast paced, entertaining and with a touch of humor, just what I needed. Well written, and I had to read late into the night. I love books that are hard to put down. - Andrea Hutton, Reviewer
Cute and clean
Enjoyable murder mystery. Good characters. The end gives a glimpse of a possible happily ever after. On to the next book. Sonia Parin has a new fan. - Kindle Customer, Reviewer

I'll never be a detective!
I'm so glad there are cozy mysteries because the ending is not so bad. You can always be scared but in the end there is always something good to look forward to. This book lived up to all that was promised. I would even read it again and even enjoy it more. - Kindle Customer87, Reviewer
Sunny Side Up
A great start to a cozy mystery series. There is Eve, who on a surprise visit to her aunt arrives to find the house surround by police tape and her ex-husband dead on the kitchen floor. Then there is the neighbor who reluctantly helps Eve find up guilty party. And lastly Jack the good looking, single detective.
Sunny Side Up is a great way to spend a couple of evenings. I look forward to reading the second book in the series, because the author has a way with her characters that makes me want to see how they progress. - Tarri, Reviewer
Fun read
A cozy mystery with a few bodies, a few break ins and s bit of romance with new friendships thrown in for good measure. Clean read, suitable for all. - Amary C, Reviewer
