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.

The Portrait of Doreen Gray (ChiChi Chihuahua Mystery #2)

The Portrait of Doreene Gray - Esri Allbritten

A fun, quirky mystery that follows the editor, writer and photographer of Tripping Magazine as they chase stories of the paranormal - or a reasonable facsimile thereof.


The Portrait... centres around the dysfunctional relationship between twin sisters. It's fast paced, although from about half way through the book there are several times that it seems as though the story is over, although clearly it isn't. Nothing wrong with this, but I found that it felt like the story lasted longer as a result.


This is a story (and a series) that I'd feel reasonably comfortable recommending to any cozy enthusiast - no foul language, no sexual situations, but lots of wit, good dialogue and endearing characters.
