Murder snd Mayhem Southern Style
I thought it was a very interesting read, but I am going to comment here on a theme I noticed in some of the reviews. Yes this was a book with the main characters being rich Southerners. And yes I do sometimes get tired of the characters who are rich and have time and money to galavant all around solving mysteries. But let’s be honest here, there is no way I could be a protagonist in a cozy mystery. I actually have to commute 2 hours a day, work 9, and try to feed my hubby and myself before bed. Plus I live paycheck to paycheck, and play the “which bills do I pay on time and which ones wait” game. What author would take on that challenge? “The Working Poor Cozy Series”. No, I will have to read books with characters who have at least a little time, flexibility in their jobs, and enough money for at least gas to track down clues, or the rich. But I get it! Enough said.
This is a good book. It is true to its Southern roots. The characters are well developed. I like them well enough (mostly) to care about them. The mystery was complex, and the organizations involved are interesting. I did have the killer pegged about halfway through. All in all a good book and I will continue reading the series. I recommend it.
