"Little Shop of Homicide" is Denise Swanson's (author of the Scumble River mystery series) first installment in a new mystery series. This one is set in a small town in Missouri, and the main character runs an old-time five-and-dime store. The characters are likable and fun. I especially liked Devereaux's feisty grandmother.

The mystery in this story was well-done. However, I would have liked a bit more time spent on development of Devereaux's store, and a little less time spent on Devereaux's indecisiveness about her love life.

Fun book, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next one in this series.
