Murder Go Round by Carol J. Perry
After a “Storage Wars” type auction, Aunt Ibby and Lee bid on a locker full of boxes after Aunt Ibby thinks she sees some promising items. After winning the locker and hauling the contents home, they discover several historical items – and a mystery!
Isn’t that a cute cover? I’m a sucker for cozies with a cat on the cover, and I love how it shows O’Ryan in the act of knocking over the Statue of Liberty. And that carousel horse! Just beautiful.
An enjoyable tale, this series always features original story lines, and Murder Go Round was no different. The intrigue kept me turning pages, and the sprinkle of Russian history added flavor (the descriptions of the Russian pastries, especially!) I loved Stasia, her colorful antics added a lot to the book. I hope she’s in later books, she was a real hoot.
Some elements in the book just didn’t do it for me, so I had to reduce my rating. I’m not going to outline them here; it would give too much away and perhaps (hopefully) those elements will be changed before the book is released.
Overall, this is a cute series, and the book was entertaining and enjoyable but not without a few issues.
Thank you to Kensington Books and Netgalley for providing an advance copy in return for my honest review.
