Book 7 of the leafy hollow series review
Verity Hawkes is the main character in this series. She runs a landscaping business and does a little private investigative work on the side. There are many characters from previous books that are in this book as well. Fun to see them all again!! Including the furry ones! I am always entertained by her cat!
Verity's good friend Emy and her boyfriend Lorne love doing stakeouts. There are funny parts throughout the book, but my favorite was their stakeout with Verity! I sincerely laughed out loud!!
I liked how the plot was very different from previous books with an expensive painting at the center and part of an inheritance. Verity's competitor in the landscaping business is giving his customers to her! He is hiding out in his house with a strange woman who claims to be related to him. Are her motives pure? Verity has to figure out what is going on. How is this painting the center of everything that is going on including 2 murdered women that happen at the same time. I liked that there were mysteries within mysteries to hold my interest!!
As always a well written cozy genre mystery book by author Rickie Blair that is engaging and entertaining as well!!
I received an advanced reader's copy and the review I am providing is my own.
