Cozy Mystery
Rating: 4 Cups

Jennet, a high school English teacher, loves her life in Foxglove Corners. She has a beautiful Victorian house, a wonderful collie and the love of Deputy Crane Ferguson. She is involved with the community, particularly the local library fundraising committee. Not all the members of the committee are so happy; one particularly moralistic woman wants to ban several classics from the shelves. An enemy from Jennet’s past is also making life difficult.

Crane loves his job. He is also looking for the perfect piece of land to build his dream house. His significant other, Jennet, who has a tendency to get involved with murder, has just stumbled over another body. Someone is also vandalizing her home so he has to watch over her even more closely.

A leading member of the community is murdered on the steps of the library, with no obvious suspects. The victim is not exactly as she seems, which leads amateur sleuth Jennet Greenway to find out who exactly the real Marla Holland was, especially since the life of a beautiful collie hangs in the balance.

This is a very engrossing cozy mystery. I loved Jennet and her friends, especially the tealeaf-reading author Lucy. The mystery was not easy to solve with many red herrings, twists, and turns. The subplot of Magic the collie also kept me interested. Other characters such as Addie the femme fatale and ladies’ man Brent were also very vivid, making this an extremely enjoyable read.
