My problem is, I read books and then I forget to review them. I don’t remember where I discovered Mycroft Holmes any more, but I do recall the thought process that went into purchasing it: “Huh. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar wrote an historical mystery? About Mycroft Holmes, of all people? Sure, I’ll check that out.”
Y’all. Y’all. Maybe I wasn’t the target audience for this book but it was so bad.
Not actually a cozy mystery! I think this one is technically a thriller.
I might have to lay off cozies for a little bit. I didn’t highlight enough of this one for pull quotes, even.
Lake Eden’s too small to have more than one murderer. (Kindle edition, location 3056) More cozy, more cats, more murder, all inside!
I know I’m late to the party on this book, and that it was a Very Big Deal some time ago, but kind of like the Martian it took me a while to catch up. Frankly? Unlike the Martian, with this book I don’t think I actually missed much.
I still haven’t quite figured out what it is with me and cozy mysteries, but I can tell you I picked this one up on a freebie deal from amazon because it’s set in a small town in Wyoming. My people are from Wyoming, so I was hoping McLinn would do all right with the characterization.
ElCicco gives the most awesomest books — and, side note, dark-chocolate covered pretzels are my favorite treats ever! I’m rationing them, though. Thanks so much! (I’ve already started Galileo’s Middle Finger.)
