Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours–Memories and Murder

 

I’m so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for author Lynn Cahoon and her new book Memories and Murder.  This is the tenth book in her A Tourist Trap Mystery series.  This is a great series and so was this book.

It’s October in South Cove, California, and the locals in the quaint resort seem to be happily pairing off in the lull before the holidays. Everyone, that is, except for Jill Gardner’s elderly aunt, who just dumped her besotted fiancé—and she won’t say why.

When Jill hosts a talk at Coffee, Books, and More on the topic of elder abuse, all that’s really on her mind is lunch. But the topic hits close to home when she discovers Aunt Jackie has been getting mysterious calls. Jill’s certain the caller is a con artist, of course, but her feisty aunt claims to understand this, though she’s still shaken—and Harrold’s still heartbroken. Who’s behind the scam and why was her aunt targeted? When a volunteer from the Senior Project is found murdered, Jill’s detective boyfriend is on the case—and it soon becomes clear no one is safe when a caller from beyond becomes a killer in their midst.

 

 

 

The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and she has created a setting, South Cove, California, that I would like to visit.  It would be so great to be able to go into Coffee, Books and More, grab a drink and pastry, and visit with everybody.

The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional.  Anytime I get to spend time with Jill, Greg, and the rest of the gang is time well spent.  In this book,we got to learn a little bit more about Aunt Jackie’s life and it made her seem more vulnerable and human.

The mystery was well plotted and carried on well throughout the entire book.  There were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider and was not easily solved.  I was pretty sure I knew who the culprit was, but I was only partially right.

I would highly recommend this book (and series) to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  In my opinion, the books just keep getting better.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
