I’m so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for author Annette Dashofy and her new release Uneasy Prey. This is the sixth book in the Zoe Chambers Mysteries series. I have read them all and I can tell you that this is one of my favorite series to read. I was so excited for the release of this book.

On the way to the emergency room, an elderly woman regains consciousness long enough to inform paramedic Zoe Chambers that her fall down the basement steps was no accident. Before she can say more, she succumbs to her injuries, launching Zoe and Police Chief Pete Adams into the investigation of a burglary ring targeting the area’s vulnerable senior citizens.
Zoe—in spite of Pete’s objections—takes it upon herself to act as protection detail after the con men, disguised as water company employees, set their sights on Zoe’s beloved former landlady. It’s a decision that eventually puts Zoe in harm’s way.
With Zoe already recovering from one close call, Pete must race against time to stop the crime ring—and a dangerous killer—before they strike again. (Goodreads)
The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional. I think that Zoe and Pete are some of my all time favorite characters. Individually they are both loyal, tough, caring and hard working. As a couple they are loving, unsure and totally devoted to each other. But they also have problems like everyone else. They have family problems that they try to tackle together and they can be stubborn to a fault. I just love Pete’s father, Harry. He reminds me so much of my own father and it was bittersweet reading about him and his problems.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. I felt the style of writing allowed my to get a very clear picture of the characters from their actions and words. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and I felt like I was right there, watching the snow swirl around and watching all of the action taking place.
The mystery was well plotted and carried on well throughout the whole book. There were enough suspects to consider and clues to sift through. The mystery was not an easy one to solve and I was surprised who the culprit was.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. With fantastic characters, a realistic setting and a top notch mystery, there is not one thing I would change about this book. The whole series is not-to-be-missed.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Henery Press, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
