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 Man in the Microwave Oven (Theo Bogart, #2)

The Man in the Microwave Oven - Susan Cox

Interesting concept, really interesting characters, a plot that's a little out there, requiring a greater degree of suspension of disbelief.  I found the narrative hard to follow at times, as the style is a bit choppy; I feel like the editor could have smoothed out the rougher edges without sacrificing the author's voice.  There were times when it was easy to lose track of who was saying what, and scenes within chapters could change abruptly. 

 

The whole “I have a secret” thing is going to get old if Cox perpetuates through a third book, but otherwise I really like this start of a new series and I'm on-board with seeing where it goes.
