Kept me guessing til the end. Definitely surprised me. Love a good who done it. Can't wait to continue the series. Thanks so much. Highly recommend.

Awesome cozy mystery

I loved the characters and even the less likable characters were described well.
As in most cozy mysteries the pace is fast and the mystery introduced early on in the book. The mystery part is well thought through and kept you guessing the entire book.

Also, the transition from very wealthy to working class is well described and lets you feel for the main character, as does the setting and the other characters, most of them really speak to me.

The solving of the mystery really tore on my heartstrings, although I would have loved to read what happened to the guilty party afterwards.

All in all I loved reading this book and would love to read more by this author!
