SynopsisReview: I am a sucker for mysteries from Henery Press. I an't believe I've missed out of the Country Club Murders. This is book three in that series.
Its a historical sort of mystery. It is set in the 1970s, which sets it apart from the usual cozies and historical cozies. It's That 70s Cozy. (OK, maybe not that way, but I love that show and that's kind of how I felt reading this book)
I loved the characters in this book, especially Ellison. She's a widow and a mother of a teenage daughter. Again these are things that put this book in a different category from the average cozy mystery. Her family is beyond crazy but they are fun and you get to meet a lot of them.
I haven't read the other two books in the series, so I was really meeting everyone for the first time. I really found myself not liking most of her family, especially her mother and sister.
This book read like a soap opera with the mystery attached. The best part about the book is that the mystery is one that will keep you guessing about everything; who the killer is, who the target is. There's just so much going on from affairs to family secrets, and Ellison has two potential love interests as well. All of this makes for a great book and a great series.
