Guidebook to Murder | Lynn Cahoon
7 posts | 11 read | 8 to read
In the gentle coastal town of South Cove, California, all Jill Gardner wants is to keep her store--Coffee, Books, and More--open and running. So why is she caught up in the business of murder? When Jill's elderly friend, Miss Emily, calls in a fit of pique, she already knows the city council is trying to force Emily to sell her dilapidated old house. But Emily's gumption goes for naught when she dies unexpectedly and leaves the house to Jill--along with all of her problems. . .and her enemies. Convinced her friend was murdered, Jill is finding the list of suspects longer than the list of repairs needed on the house. But Jill is determined to uncover the culprit--especially if it gets her closer to South Cove's finest, Detective Greg King. Problem is, the killer knows she's on the case--and is determined to close the book on Jill permanently. . . 81,000 Words

This reminded me a lot of the Booktown Mystery series by Lorna Barrett. The similarities were striking! But the story was quite different. While I liked the MC Jill, her choices grated sometimes. I found myself annoyed with how she thought she knew better than others, and it was often the opposite. Still, I guess this helped to make the mystery mysterious. Not sure I'll continue with the series, but it was an entertaining read on its own. 3/5⭐️

I got this one on a kindle deal, and while it had a lot of elements I enjoyed, the writing really dragged it down. It felt disorganized, and the characters felt underdeveloped; it also repeated itself a LOT. I was beginning to think that if the MC had one more internal monologue about how her love interest was supposedly married, I'd have to put it down. However, the setting was nice and I loved the house that played a big part in the plot. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Melissa_J I liked this one, but felt it could have been edited down and still been enjoyable. I liked the second book in the series, too, but haven't yet gone further. 3y

Pretty good cozy mystery with a fun romantic plot line. Just the brain candy I needed to get chill out of my spine from The Good House.
