This is a fun cryptid murder mystery. It gets bonus points for not taking itself too seriously and the setting being in our lovely Wisconsin. Characters are enjoyable, if hard to relate to overall. But if you enjoy quick reads with mostly fluff but good writing, then this is for you. Also for fans of Nessie!

You‘ll enjoy this read even if you‘re not a midwesterner. If you are, particularly if you know the north, it will be pure pleasure. Our protagonist, Morgan Carter is a skeptical cryptozoologist (the best kind) She‘s been asked by the Police Chief of Washington Island to investigate two unexplained drowning deaths. The bodies show crushing injuries from what could be a large Nessie-like sea creature, but the truth is even weirder, and man made.

Midwesterners: here‘s a contemporary cozy mystery especially for us (but the rest of you can read it, too). Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#a-death-in-door-county

What I thought would be a creature feature turned out to be a cozy mystery. However, I still loved it, and I‘m happy it‘s going to be a series. I used it for the #ScarathalonPromptMaze for the 31 chapters or more prompt.

Mehso-so

Simply put it felt like a cozy mystery that softened the death and fearful moments with a dose of smart humor, or quick wit releasing the tension as it was still building. Not a bad read but I think I was looking to be a little more scared.

Starting a new read while watching Teen Wolf with my sister! It‘s a gorgeously crisp day here so decided some instant pot risotto was in order for dinner tonight.

#TeamMonsterMash, this looks interesting for #Scarathlon. I probably can't get it from the library until after the contest, but maybe someone else will have better luck.

A lovely cozy mystery with the fun twist that the main sleuth is a cryptozoologist. I found this book delightful and I loved the interwoven facts about different cryptids and the Great Lakes!
There were a few sections that could have benefited from a bit more editing but overall well written with a great cast of characters.
I can't wait to read more in this series, it looks like a Sasquatch book was alluded to next? Heck yeah #netgalley

Sparklemn I gave my parents a Ring camera for Christmas so they could keep an eye on wildlife in the woods behind their house. I keep hoping for a Sasquatch. So far, just squirrels and deer. 😂 😂 8mo
Palimpsest Fun! Door County is one of my favorite places! 8mo
DogEaredBooks @Sparklemn 😂 love that and I would be 100% doing the same!! 8mo
DogEaredBooks @Palimpsest I‘ve never been but now I want to! I love finding new places on the Great Lakes! 8mo
