Curtains for Miss Plym: A Canine Mystery by Kathleen Delaney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lori Latimer I received an e-book edition of Curtains for Miss Plym: A Canine Mystery by Kathleen Delaney in exchange for an honest review. Severn House Publishers approved this via NetGalley.
Curtains for Miss Plym: A Canine Mystery, is a cozy mystery.
I did not expect to love this book.
After I followed Mary and Millie into the church hall, where they found Miss Plym's body, I was hooked.
Mary McGill has had over sixty years to perfect making tea. She and her adopted companion; Millie the Cocker Spaniel, make a good team.
Excitement is in every nook and cranny, as Mary gathers clues. Staying busy, she helps her friends in the Santa Louisa community.
Reading this novel took me back to my youth when I read my first Agatha Christie mystery, except this is a modern mystery. "Curtains..." is not out of touch, Mary McGill is toting an iPhone and dialing 911.
I fell in love with Mary McGill's character. She is strong, and as an amateur detective she is tireless in her efforts to benefit the community. There were twists and surprises.
Mary sometimes solves mysteries in her sleep. Our hero is over seventy years old. She is active, and handles herself against a violent killer.
I recommend this to anyone who loves a cozy mystery, and will ask our library to add it to our collection.
Kathleen Delaney has a new fan. The writing is good, and there were no formatting errors. Except for murder and larceny, the content is clean. (less)
