MURDER IS A MONKEY’S GAME BY RUBY LOREN:

In author Ruby Loren‘s latest book, Murder Is A Monkey’s Game, Madi and Lowell are in France.  Madie’s helping a zoo improve their habituates and environment for the animals.  Suddenly a paraglider falls from the sky into the Bengal tiger habituate.  Lowell immediately recognizes the victim;  a man from Lowell’s dark and mysterious past.

When two mysterious agents turn up in the village asking lots of questions, things heat up for Lowell and Madi.  As the victims continue to mount, Madi’s in the middle of another murder investigation;  with everyone suspects, including Lowell.  My cozy mystery book reviews of Murder Is A Monkey’s Game follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Author Ruby Loren crafted a Madigan Amos cozy mystery which entertains and holds the reader‘s attention.  The romance between Madi and Lowell’s sweet and clean as they continue to form a relationship.  Of course, Madi’s a magnet for murder, and this job is no different. 

With a multitude of suspects and few clues, Madi will have to dig hard to find the who, why, and what, involved in this case. Ruby Loren skillfully concealed the identity of the murderer among a cast of many;  revealing the why and who at the last possible moment.  I was blown away when the murderer’s shown, as well as, the reason for the crimes.  I did not consider this person as the culprit.  As a detective, I would be a bust.

Including the cute, but mischievous monkeys, provided classic moments of animal behavior.  They are first-class monkey rascals who get into many monkey high-jinks;  adding bits of humor and laughter.  Also, Loren included in a sweet dog who provided many laughs at her owner’s expense.

MY OPINION:

I found Murder Is A Monkey’s Game filled with suspense, mystery, and intrigue.  With vivid descriptions and well-developed characters, Ruby Loren grabs the reader on the first page and continues to hold you throughout the book.  Also, Loren included a touch of mystery to Lowell.  With a mysterious past, Madi and the reader are left wondering what we will find;  whetting my appetite for more of Lowell’s character.  I thought the story slowed slightly in the middle. However, it quickly gained speed and barreled to the ending;  leaving me champing at the bit for the next book in this series.

As a result of substantial mystery and strong female lead character, I love to read and review cozy mysteries.  Cozy mysteries are one of my favorite genres.  Ruby Loren makes reviews easy to create with her clear writing style, well-developed characters, and well-thought-out story-lines.  Murder Is A Monkey’s Game is an easy book to read;  suitable for anyone who loves a solid mystery filled with suspense, intrigue and a touch of clean romance.  Perfect for a day of reading pleasure, I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.  This concludes my cozy mystery book reviews of Murder Is A Monkey’s Game.
