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.

A Custom-Fit Crime: A Magical Dressmaking Mystery #4

A Custom-Fit Crime - Melissa Bourbon

First of all, I love this series. It ticks all the boxes for me: good mysteries, great characters, great setting, humour, quirkiness, ghosts and charms. I love the ever evolving backstory of Bliss.

 

What to say about this book in particular? I'm not sure. It was a good story, with really clever plot-lines (although the primary plot line murderer was the one I suspected). I love where Harlow and Will are heading and I really get a kick out of his daughter. But for some reason, this book just felt flatter than the others and I can't really say why.

 

Did I enjoy reading it? Yes, though not as much as the previous ones. Would I recommend this series? Have done and will continue to rave about it. But I wouldn't recommend that anyone read this book as an introduction to the series (although if they do, they can look forward to all the rest of the books being even better!

 

On the plus side, the next one comes out 9 months from now, instead of a year. Woot!
