I was drawn to this book because it was set in Michigan (my home state) and it had a Hoosier cabinet as the main gimmick in the mystery. My mother still owns a vintage hoosier.

I liked the book and the characters and the story right away. It had enough twists and turns to make the story interesting.

There were a few things that got me wondering. What is a Yellow brick house? Are yellow brick houses common in Michigan? Is this really a town in Michigan, a Heart break island, ETC?

My research finds that Yellow brick houses are of course houses make with yellow brick and they are more common in Eastern Canada, and that yellow bricks tend to turn gray and black with age, so are often painted. It is the Limestone that gives the bricks their yellow color.

The places do not appear to be really towns, but she sure made you wish that such places were real.

OVer all I loved this book and want to read the next one. and the next one. So if you are overwhelmed with cozy choices this is one worth reading.
