Sarah Grayson has recently opened a second hand shop and taken in a cat named Elvis. When one of her grandmother's friends is accused of murder, she ends up trying to be the voice of reason for a group of senior citizens who are amateur sleuths.
Overall, a good start to a new cozy mystery series. Lots of humor mixed with suspense. I would've liked more explanation of characters. I found it confusing to keep everyone straight.
This book is a combination of mystery, humour, quirky characters, great relationships and the opportunity of really growing. Elvis is as much fun as, but different than Owen and Hercules from her other series. She can only get better from here. Look forward to some falling down laughter, at least for me. I'm not looking for perfect tenses at my age, I just want fun, cozy, great relationships and light romance. I had guessed what was going on, but I won't be a spoiler and tell, didn't know the final answer tho' until closer to the end. Had a moment of wonderment, but wasn't sure. Looking for more of the same.
In almost all of the books lately, the proof reading could really be improved, but I'm not going to let it spoil my enjoyment of reading. I'm old enough to pick my battles carefully and decide what's important and what isn't. Reading is important to me as well as my vision. Praise the Lord for cataract surgery and glaucoma medication. Just think a few years ago both would have meant blindness. (Just saying)
Please enjoy this book, it's a great beginning.
I really enjoyed this new series. It is a book filled with humorous, enjoyable characters. The cat is named Elvis. I will be on the outlook for the next in this series.
