Book Reviews: A few Cozy Mysteries

Thanks to Amazon.in and Kindle, I have developed a sudden and strong affinity towards quick, cozy murder mysteries. I am on a reading spree of all these books like a voracious yet starved reader who can’t get enough.

What I liked about these books the most is:

  • They are short, so they are quick to read.
  • The plots are not very complicated so the readers don’t get lost in the crowd of characters and detailing.
  • There is no description of violence or gory details about the murders.
  • The main lead of all these stories are women.

Here are some short reviews of the eBooks I recently read.

Progressive Dinner Deadly (A Myrtle Clover Mystery #3) by Elizabeth Spann Craig

PDD

This book is an entertaining read. Myrtle Clover is a lovable, elderly sleuth investigating a murder in her small town, Bradley. Her attempts to improve her book club fails and the book club converts into a dinner club to her dismay. She reluctantly participates only to find the night turn into a ghastly murder scene. What follows is Myrtle’s attempts to find the murderer. There is humor and intrigue woven together in a good combination. I enjoyed reading this book. It is indeed a cozy mystery.

 

Death Comes to Town (Darcy Sweet, #1) by K.J. Emrick

Death comes to town

At 113 pages its a good book to relax with on a lazy afternoon. The story is not so complicated yet an element of mystery is present, along with a touch of super-natural which is amusing and interesting. Darcy Sweet, a book shop owner living in the sleepy town of Misty Hollow is a simple woman who has inherited a house and the book shop from her great aunt Millie. She has a sixth sense of feeling the presence of the other world entities. Unfortunately she is dragged into the murder of her neighbor Anna and how the story unfolds thereafter is what the book is all about. Overall, it is an enjoyable read with a cup of coffee to go with.

 

The St. Valentine’s Day Cookie Massacre (Hatter’s Cove Gazette Mystery, #1) by Elisabeth Crabtree

Cookie

This story is about Kat Archer, a reluctant food columnist who gets involved in a murder when she is invited to ‘Cookie Jar’ for its opening on the Valentine’s day so she could write a review. Kat was considered a harsh critic as she wrote reviews about restaurants in Hatter’s Cove that got her a lot of hate mail. She wants to be an investigative journalist rather than write food columns at the local newspaper. Kat finds herself at the center stage of a murder which she feels is related to another murder, which had happened in the past. So she decides to get to the core of it. The plot is interesting, not too many complications. The book is a quick and cozy read.

 

A Secret Killer (Julia Blake Murder Mystery #4) by Gillian Larkin 

Secret Killer

I had read another one of this series, Virtually Scared to Death by Gillian Larkin, so while reading this book I felt I already know Julia Blake and her habit of finding a corpse while she is cleaning a house for her client. This time it was Hugo Barnes, a genealogist. Julia had taken under her wings, Andrew Cain, an ex-convict as an employee, since she believed Cain was wrongly convicted and deserved a second chance in life. However, Cain gets arrested for the murder of Hugo and Julia wants to solve this mystery to prove Cain’s innocence. This is a simple yet interesting murder mystery which I enjoyed reading and would recommend to the readers who love short cozy mysteries.

Book Review : Murder and Moonflowers by Leslie Leigh

 

MnMs

 

The protagonist of this story, Melissa Michaels is a Herbalist/Dietician operating a market in the sleepy town of Catalonia, Arizona. One of her clients, Lauryl dies under mysterious circumstances from something that even the Medical Examiner cannot decipher. This gives rise to lot of gossip and speculations and the sheriff also has Melissa under suspicion. Who could be the killer? Is it Lauryl’s boyfriend, Nash or her niece, Cindy or someone else from the town? Fortunately, an unknown friend hires a Private Investigator, Brian to help Melissa and the two of them together race against time to solve this mystery.

Personally, I adore the genre of Mystery and this story has an interesting plot to keep me captivated from the start to the end. I loved the small town feel of Arizona. This is also a quick read as the book is just over 100 pages. All-in all I really enjoyed reading Murder and Moonflowers and would recommend it to readers who love mystery.
