Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Crushed Velvet (Material Witness, #2)

Crushed Velvet - Diane Vallere

Better than the first book in the series (which wasn't bad either).


Poly is getting ready to open her store when a friend's husband is found murdered.  The friend has managed to make herself look guilty as sin, even though she's (of course) innocent so Poly does her best to find out who could have killed him and why.


Information isn't so much withheld as strung out throughout the book, so it's really not possible to know who the killer was until almost the end, keeping me from getting bored with the story.


I like the characters and the writing enough to read the next book.
