Senoia Cozy Mystery

While throwing, essentially, a block party to increase the buzz around the new apartment complex that is being built downtown. However, on the night of the party, there was an accident and a teenage girl plummeted to her death. Felicity doesn’t think much of it until Her ex-boyfriend Jack comes to her needing help. They look into it together before there is no trace of the murderer.

This book is better than the 1st book in this series and I’m happy that I gave it a shot. Like with the first book, I like the characters and the interactions between them. Felicity and Jack have some background given to them, more than they dated. Jack’s family is filled out and we get to see the connection that he has to Felicity, even though they aren’t together anymore.

The murder in this novel was a little convoluted. I can say that I guessed wrong but given the clues that were given, I don’t believe many people would have guessed right. It makes sense though, and we do get some background as to what their motive was.

I enjoyed this book more than the first, so I’ll probably try to finish this series.

Felicity is holding a Halloween night at the local hospital to raise money for the new wing. However, when an older woman was found dead in the morgue’s Haunted house, things changed a little bit. Now, Felicity and Jack work together to find out who killed her while the murder is still on the grounds.

Ok, so this was actually a fairly good book. Everything happened on one evening, as far as the murder mystery was concerned. I found that the murderer was a little obvious, but then again I say that a lot. Though the plot was a little predictable, I still liked the interactions between the character.

I didn’t understand the end of the book very much, but that might be a personal opinion. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I felt like it came out of nowhere and should have had a bit more of a build up. Even just a paragraph about what happened during the 6 months leap from the end of Halloween till May.

Overall it was a fine book, I’m just not sure how they are going to work on the new character.

When her friend is murdered, Felicity it pulled into yet another murder mystery. With 3 under her belt, she works together with Jack to figure out who would have wanted to hurt Wanda. Could it be something from her past has come back to haunt her? Or was it something a little more recent.

Ok, I think out of everything that annoyed me about this book it was the lack of being able to count months. We find out in May that Felicity and Brian are dating, come thanksgiving they apparently only knew each other for 3 months. With some basic math, we know it’s been 7 months. I feel like that was a bit thing that was missed. It annoyed me more than I care to admit.

The character of Brian is not one I like. I can’t see Felicity dating a defence attorney that actively gets criminals out of jail. We see him as two-faced in the book since we get to see how he acts with Jefferson and Jack.

The mystery was straight-forward, and I did have a guess of who killed the victim early on. Though I wasn’t 100% sure ’til later in the book.

I did enjoy it and would have enjoyed it more had the amounts of time added up properly.
