A new cozy mystery series from USA Today best-selling author Dale Mayer. Follow gardener and amateur sleuth Doreen Montgomery—and her amusing and mostly lovable cat, dog, and parrot—as they catch murderers and solve crimes in lovely Kelowna, British Columbia.
Riches to rags. ... Chaos again. ... Winning is important, ... at least for some!
Doreen is overwhelmed with joy when she sees all the volunteers who show up to help get her deck addition built. Most of the men are cops, friends of Corporal Mack Moreau’s, and are happy to help Mack’s special friend and the lady who has helped solve so many crimes for them with a spot of home renovation.
But before the deck improvement can be finished, duty calls, and the cops are called away on a case. Another gray-haired lady has dropped dead. Yet another heart attack victim is added to the long line of previous ones. And, of course, neither of these recently deceased women had a heart condition that would explain their sudden demise.
With her animals at her side, Doreen is determined to figure out what the ladies had in common, plus why and how kiwis keep popping up in this case. As she digs into the ladies’ lives, the things Doreen discover are shocking, … but not as shocking as the answer is to this riddle …
Killer in the kiwis
Love Doreen. She is funny and Nan is hysterical. Can’t wait for the next book to come out. Hope it is soon.
I love the adventures of Doreen and her menagerie. This book was a joy as Doreen ended up with her deck and backyard done by the guys on the police force . As usual she ended up solving a current case instead of a cold case you just have to read the book .
Solving the Past and the Present
Doreen and her house is a work in progress. Her skill -- solving cold cases. In the midst of rehabbing her backyard and deck with the help of Mack and friends, she stumbles on an active case with surprises. In the meantime a gentle romance continues and the animals continue to protect their mistress and make new friends. A fun, fun book with beloved characters from previous books. It is a standalone book of romance and mystery but is also so much more fun when read in a series.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
