A Death Downtown (Senoia Cozy Mystery #11)

Standard

Overton is still working towards finding out who broke into their office, however, they can’t stand still. With some many events on the go, including the car show, Overton Events are running. They work to make the event bigger and better than ever. However, when yet another death occurs during the event, Felicity is starting to feel cursed.

Alrighty then… where do I begin? Maybe I should start with, this was simultaneously the most interesting and most boring book in this series. It’s amazing when I feel like that because that mean 1/2 of the story was interesting and the other 1/2 was really boring. Let’s start with the interesting points. I loved how Felicity grows in this book in her personal life. She works towards strengthening her relationship with Jefferson, as well as balancing her work life with Jack. She also self-reflects more in this book than last. We also get to see a little more of Felicity’s family. Though we only get to meet Her grandmother in the end, she feels like a good fit.

Now for the bad. The mystery aspect was all over the place in this book. We didn’t really get to grasp what’s going on and we had the gang deducing things, seemingly at random. Sometimes it’s nice to have a throwback, however, when it’s pushed in like it “makes sense” when it really doesn’t, that’s when it starts to annoy me. They were also really sloppy in this book. In theory, all of them who are working in the investigation aspect of the company have their PI licence, however, they are all still acting like amateurs… and Jack used to be a cop. In most books, I can let that slide, however, when the set up for this book is that they are supposed to have that background, I can’t just let sloppy investigation slide.

This was an ok book, however, it’s not going to top any lists any time soon.
