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.

Living and Dying in the Hamptons (Hamptons #1)

Living and Dying in the Hamptons - T.L. Ingham

Well, a GR friend had only good things to say about this SPA book and recommended it to me and so I picked it up.

 

A fun fast read with a great cast of characters you wish existed in real life. The ghosts all crack me up - each very unique and very much still the person they once were. I love the snark and the humour, and the dialogue is fast and easy to follow with a minimum of editing errors.

 

The plot was well developed, a very solid effort. The villain wasn't obvious (to me) and though the ending was a bit anti-climatic, I was ok with that as I get tired of the predictability of cozies and their endings at times.

 

This book is an absolute steal, as the author is giving it away free of charge on Smashwords. I'd have happily paid 2-3 bucks for this book and another 2-3 for the sequel. If you're looking for an entertaining story that's lighthearted and fun, and you like free, this might be the book for you.
