"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Quite a bit going on for a novella. Hayden, the editor of the newspaper, is Kat's former crush (and I didn't get the impression he knows it). The detective assigned to the case is also newly moved back to Hatter's Cove, from his and Kat's former town of Miami, so they have...let's say a rapport.
Could use a reread by an editor.
This is a quick novella. The plot flows and there’s not a single boring part to be found. It is kind of easy to pick out the killer, but it’s still a good read. Definitely interested in reading more of this series!!
There are plenty of fun, likable characters introduced in this book, and each is a believable character rather than an exaggerated caricature as happens in many cozies.
The book's mystery is actually two mysteries that are interwoven and makes for a complex set of relationships amongst the characters and possible suspects. There are lots of clues, lots of possibilities, and lots of possible perps to keep the reader off balance and sorting out the motives and and identity of the murderer or murderers.
The one thing in the book that I found questionable as far as believability was that a small town could support not just one, but two daily newspapers. It's a minor suspension of belief the author asks the reader in which to indulge in return for a very engaging cast of characters and a challenging mystery.
There is a sample of four chapters of Death by Pink Flamingo: A Pink Flamingo Hotel Mystery Book 1 (Hatter's Cove Mystery Series), a cozy mystery set in the same town as this book and featuring some of the same supporting characters.
It is Valentine's Day in Hatter's Cove, Florida. Food columnist Kat Archer has been assigned the event of the year, the grand opening of Miss Dolly's Cookie Jar and Sweet Emporium. This assignment turns into something much more dangerous when one of the Cookie Jar's employees is poisoned. As Kat is chasing the biggest story of her life, she also has her eye on her handsome editor and is trying to avoid becoming the next victim.
I do recommend this story for ages 14 on up. Except for the murders in the story, everything else is clean cut.
