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.

Written in Stone (Books by the Bay Mystery #4)

Written in Stone - Ellery Adams

A good read, one that was better than the book before it, which was better than it's predecessor.  The characters in this series have become more real and more likeable, especially the main character, Olivia.


The mystery in this story was interesting, layered, and complex. Instead of a plot with a lot of suspects, this was a plot where there was no obviously viable suspect, making the unfolding of the story even more intriguing. The ending illuminated a motivation it was hard not to pity and be repulsed by at the same time.


A solid cozy mystery series I'd recommend to anyone looking for depth in their cozies - you'll not find humour or comedy in these books, but you will find well thought out plots and considered writing with complex characters.
