A Flower House Mystery
by Jess Dylan
Readers go to cozy mysteries when they want a break from the harshness of life. Yes, bad things happen in these stories, including murder, but there is not over the top violence. Also, books in this genre tend to feature likeable protagonists, pets, inviting small town settings and often the chance to learn about something…think baking or in this case a flower shop.
This title goes according to that formulation and will be enjoyed by fans of the genre. The protagonist has returned to the place where she grew up having faced stresses away from home. However, home doesn’t provide a stress free existence. As could be guessed from the title, someone is murdered in the flower shop.
There are suspects, townsfolk whom readers will like and, of course, a crime to be solved. All will be resolved.
This is the first in a new series. Cozy lovers may well look forward to any books that follow.
