A Mail Carrier Cozy Mystery, Book #7
Welcome to Sugar Creek Gap. It’s a lovely small town. Small towns have their advantages, everyone is together to celebrate the good times and rallies together to comfort during the bad times. It also has its disadvantages, Everyone knows everyone and it’s a hotbed of gossip.
Bernadette gets into an argument with a cantankerous patron of her delivery route. When he winds up dead, Bernadette is the primary suspect, since she brought him biscuits as a peace offering!
With the assistance of her BFF Iris and her neighbor Revonda Gail, she works on clearing her name so she can have more time to spend with her family. (Amazon)
The characters are well rounded and well developed. Iris, Revonda Gail and Bernadette are getting along fine and things are going good. Until Bernadette gets into an argument with one of her postal customers and he winds up dead. Bernadette is a suspect and gets put on leave, which gives her plenty of time to look for the killer. The three of them, along with The Front Porch Ladies, will have to find the culprit. There are other things happening in Bernadette’s life that she will have to deal with.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive and these descriptions took me on a great Southern adventure. The mystery was well plotted and I was surprised at who the murderer was.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. Grab your copy and enjoy yourself.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
