CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Fishing For A Murderer by author Meredith Potts, a light airy fun cozy mystery, will delight and entertain the reader.  As everyone knows, I love cozy mysteries and Fishing For Murderer hit the spot.  With Hope’s character, full of snips and funny quips, this tale of murder‘s fun to read.  Potts, crafted a relaxing, light, entertaining, short mystery to fill a few hours.  I loved Hope’s character.  Loyal, fiercely protesting her friends guilt, and ready to jump in to the fray, Hope will win your heart.

Meredith Potts included several likely suspects for Hope to interrogate, snoop into their lives, and question.  Potts also added a touch of romance for Hope in this tale of murder.  With a victim worthy of murder and an innocent suspect, Fishing For A Murderer, will keep your interest.   Potts plotted the story well and included characters with a variety of personalities. Hope had her work cut out for her.  I loved this zany former television detectivePotts scenes transition well from scene to scene and her writing style is clear and easy to follow.  Including family dynamics with her detective brother, added an extra element to the book.

Fishing For A Murdered is not a deep dark murder mystery with gory details, rather the reader finds a story which is light and relaxing with a lovable main character.  A good book to spend an hour or so in the afternoon of lazy relaxing reading.

FISHING FOR A MURDERER RECOMMENDATION:  STARS 4

STORY-LINE AND CONCEPT OF THE GRUMPFACE BY B.C.R. FEGAN

In The Grumpface, B. C. R. Fegan author and Daniela Frongia illustrator, crafted an entertaining book for any child.  With a premise easy to follow, the child will giggle and wiggle as they listen to this fun filled book.

A grumpy man became grumpy with a wizard.  The wizard changed him into Grumpface and placed him deep in the dark forest.  Grumpface would have to laugh before he would change back to a man.  He devised a game for the people who wandered into the forest.  They had to complete three task or stay in the forest.  Dan wanted to find a rose for the flower vender, Bella, who he loved.  Going into the forest, he meets Grumpface and laughter follows as Dan tried to complete the three task.

I love rhyming poems and stories; I am sure any child would love to have this book.  The rhyming will catch the adult or child’s attention immediately.  Children will find the rhyming easy to remember and follow.  All children love to have someone read to them; this book is perfect for any time of day as you set with your child.

With illustrations, detailed and colorful, children will love looking at the pages in The Grumpface.  I do not think they will be frighten as Grumpface resembles an old grumpy green leprechaun.  With help from the reader/adult, children will understand laughter can change a person’s attitude and outlook;  the reader/adult should explain Grumpface becomes a different person after seeing Dan’s funny attempts to complete the three task.  The reader/adult can also impress upon the child how the man became Grumpface; an excellent teaching tool.  An adult could sit with the child who’s reading age and explain the concepts of the book.
