Cancelled by Murder by Jean Flowers
After a powerful storm hits North Ashcot, Cassie’s friend, Daisy, is found dead underneath a tree branch. When it’s found that Daisy’s death was no accident, the victim’s husband, Cliff, enlists Cassie’s help investigating the murder.
The plot was convoluted, but not in a bad way! With deftly written misdirections and red herrings, it was easy to get turned around and doubt my instincts, and the surprising ending was satisfying and enjoyable.
One thing I like about this series is that a fascination and appreciation for history, especially postal history, is sprinkled throughout. It’s obvious the author has a real penchant for it, and her enthusiasm is infectious.
Overall, an enjoyable book and a great cozy mystery. This book can be read as a standalone, but the first book in the series is worth a read as well.
