However, things do not go as planned. Holly finds herself in the middle a murder mystery as each detective’s killed. Will Holly find the killer and solve the case before she meets her deadly end? My review of cozy mystery, Snowed In With Death follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Although a cozy murder mystery, I must say I found humor in this story. With snips, snarks, and quips, the reader finds these,so-called, brilliant detectives, are not as bright as Holly thought. Holly, thinking she’s not as smart as the other detectives, and in awe of the group, looses her awe as they show their true colors. Back biting, ridicule, and jealousy rule at Horn Hill House in Scotland. I found the plot smooth and steady as it raced to the end of the book. The scenes flowed smoothly as the book progressed, and I found the characters well-developed.
A fast paced who done it, the reader’s hooked immediately. I have to confess cozy mysteries are one of my favorite genres, and this one fits the bill with humor, a strong female lead, and a well-developed story-line. A short read, I found this book well suited for a lazy afternoon of reading.
In concluding my review of Snowed In With Death, I found a solid murder mystery, containing humor, a killer ending, and a surprise villain. I would not hesitate to buy this book for my self or a friend.
