Great Escapes Book Tour : Past and Present

Past & Present: A Marketville Mystery by Judy Penz Sheluk

About the Book

Cozy Mystery 2nd in Series Superior Shores Press (September 21, 2018) Paperback: 232 pages ISBN-10: 0995000735 ISBN-13: 978-0995000735 Digital ASIN: B07FYZ6HPF
Sometimes the past reaches out to the present...
It’s been thirteen months since Calamity (Callie) Barnstable inherited a house in Marketville under the condition that she search for the person who murdered her mother thirty years earlier. She solves the mystery, but what next? Unemployment? Another nine-to-five job in Toronto?
Callie decides to set down roots in Marketville, take the skills and knowledge she acquired over the past year, and start her own business: Past & Present Investigations.
It’s not long before Callie and her new business partner, best friend Chantelle Marchand, get their first client: a woman who wants to find out everything she can about her grandmother, Anneliese Prei, and how she came to a “bad end” in 1956. It sounds like a perfect first assignment. Except for one thing: Anneliese’s past winds its way into Callie’s present, and not in a manner anyone—least of all Callie—could have predicted.

Review: First of all, don't judge a book by its cover. I'm really bad at that, but I'm glad that I gave this book a go, because it was so worth it.

I love the Cold Case aspect of this book. That was one of my favorite shows and this book gives me that in spades. I also like that is more than just another mystery series. Its got the fun quirky characters, but I like the fact that our main character was a PI.

This was a fabulous quick read that I really couldn't get enough of. I absolutely love mysteries that have a historical aspect to them

I can't wait to read more by Judy Penz Sheluk
