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.

Devil's Trumpet (A Gardening Mystery #1)

Devil's Trumpet - Mary Freeman

I read this book years ago and remember enjoying it, so I picked up a used copy to have a re-read.

 

Overall, it's a good story with a solid plot. I thought the solution seemed obvious, but that could be memories of the first read. The characters lack a bit of spark, but they are pretty likeable and each one is unique - I didn't mix up any of the characters in my head like I do in some mysteries. The setting in Oregon is picturesque and the writer made it easy for me to 'be there' as I read.

 

I can't say I loved it - but I enjoyed it.
