The fifth in the delightful cozy mystery series from Diane Kelly set in Nashville, TN—where the real estate market is to die for.

In PRIMER AND PUNISHMENT, Whitney and Buck are rehabbing their houseboat when—KABOOM!— a neighboring boat blows sky high. Can Whitney and Buck determine who killed their neighbor before they are sunk as well? You’ll enjoy this delightful cozy mystery from Diane Kelly!

My Review:

I very much enjoyed this cozy mystery. I liked the setting on a houseboat; who hasn’t wanted to live on one for a bit? I also found the main characters to be engaging.

Whitney and Buck are fixing up the said houseboat. Next to them is another boat and its owner, Grant. When Grant dies in a blast, the stakes of being on the lake rise considerably. Will our protagonists figure out what happened to their neighbor? Of course, they will. The fun is in watching them do so.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. However, after reading this entry, readers may want to go back to the first four books.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
