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.

Grave Dance (Alex Craft Series #2)

Grave Dance - Kalayna Price

Excellent read. Different from what I normally choose, but never too dark or hard-boiled. The author has given Alex a very complicated past talent-wise, so there's a lot of room for future discovery.

 

I'm not normally a fan of love triangles (at ALL) but so far this one has been well-balanced and not at all annoying or frustrating. The author has done an excellent job of keeping me from picking a favourite. But taking this triangle too far forward into future books will prove to annoy me to the point of abandonment. (Although, if she chooses to keep both of them, well that could prove to be fun too!) Just please don't devolve into 'which one will she choose' silliness.  

 

The plot of the story was excellent and I was all prepared to accept the "bad guy" in this story - Ms. Price really led me down the garden path - only to be blissfully surprised to find out I was wrong.  I have the next in the series, Grave Memory and I'm looking forward to cracking it open...
