Predictable but Charming
A series of short cozy mysteries (yeah, there are bodies but nothing’s described in gruesome detail or anything.)
– Main character – Polly was basically Stephanie Plum lite – a clumsy disaster magnet with gorgeous boyfriend who saves her repeatedly.
– Side characters – including pets were very well fleshed out and added a nice layer to the story.
– I heard the audible version, which I definitely recommend over simple reading. Narrator did a decent job with the performance.
– I enjoyed how the stories built on one another. (Would not recommend reading the series out of order.)
– One thing that bothered me: the main character/narrator broke the fourth wall (talked to the reader; ala – “now, I know what you’re thinking” style) numerous times. Once, I get (simple mistake/stylistic choice), but any more than that is just annoying.
– Plots ended up being unique if a little “convenient” from time to time, but that’s sort of the nature of a mystery novella.
If you’re looking for short, fluff mysteries with minimal curses, this is a good choice.
