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.
