My Review

4/5 Stars

Wendy Atlas is working undercover on a case for the M Falcon Detective Agency. When someone is murdered, and she is listed as the prime suspect, she has no choice but to reach out to her friends to get their help. When it turns out her potential love interest’s daughter might be responsible, Wendy is thrown down a rabbit hole of mystery and deception.

Wendy is definitely an interesting character. She was very animated and a humorous addition to a murder mystery. The POV bounces around a bit, and we’re introduced to a lot of characters who bring their own unique little character quirks into the story.

Interesting little cozy mystery, great for a rainy day.

Narration was okay.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
