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.

Sweet Masterpiece (Samantha Sweet #1)

Sweet Masterpiece - Connie Shelton

I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect from this read, but it was recommended by a friend who likes a lot of the same books I do, so I gave it a shot. A really well written cozy mystery with elements of the paranormal. The characters were interesting and likeable, although none really stood out. A bit of romance as well, but nothing too intense or edgy.


The main character takes care of houses that have been abandoned and foreclosed on, and I can see how this job could lead to a lot of interesting plot lines.


I very much liked the art angle of this plot, and even though I guessed the murderer early, it didn't at all detract from the big reveal, so I'll say it was a well written, well thought-out plot.


Will probably pick up the next one at some point, and I'll happily recommend this book to lovers of cozy mysteries.
