Stephanie Plum meets Bridget Jones in this hilarious yet suspenseful cozy mystery featuring Sunny Truly, a brand-new apprentice private investigator in Austin, Texas.
When a long ago childhood friend is found dangling in a tree—with a dead man in her apartment—Sunny is hired to prove the friend innocent of murder.
Frumpy, earnest and stubborn, Sunny goes undercover as a glam-girl to ferret out suspects at the nightclub where her friend worked.
With the aid of her wise-cracking boss, Cleve Haylock, and swoon-worthy police detective John Rock, Sunny uncovers an ugly secret with deadly consequences. Will Sunny be the next victim?
Sunny is working a new career as an apprentice P.I. Getting over a tumultuous divorce with an ex who sabotaged her career as a teacher, she needs the P.I. thing to work. Unexpectedly she lands herself on a case where her childhood friend is accused of murder. The friend was found in a tree with a dead man in her apartment. Police think it’s the perfect murder-suicide attempt. Can Sunny prove them otherwise?
In an Oyster Shell – A great cozy mystery with a little bit of an awkward main character.
The Pearls – The concept of the story was interesting. I love a good Cozy. This fits the bill. It was a well thought out plot and was well executed.
The characters were interesting. I had my qualms with the MC in the beginning. Eventually, it all came together. There were a lot of supporting characters which balanced out the story quite nicely.
I like the idea of this series and plan on continuing on to the next book Merlot and Murder. I like the idea of using adult drinks as the theme. It is unique to cozies.
The Sand – The main character was awkward and boring at first. She took a lot of showers. It get’s better as the book progresses and she becomes a more likable character.
