Pamela Rose's latest mystery cozy...
The Adventure of the Indigo Inkster
A much deserved Caribbean Cruise over the Christmas holiday has left the Sherlock family relaxed and ready for anything…or so they think. That’s until they come home to discover that the town’s favorite son, Sheriff Wavy Davey, and Finn Sherlock’s favorite hunk has met his maker beneath the waves of Lake Loveless…a name which now seems only too appropriate to the grieving Finn Sherlock. Indubitably, the well-laid plans of mice and women have gone awry at Sherlock’s Home Mystery Bookstore and the 221b Bakery. As the one-year anniversary looms ahead nothing is as it should be. The Sherlocks’ other personal relationships have gone askew in a similar fashion. Echo has become particularly adept at aborning the new before the old has barely set sail into the Caribbean sunset, taking on a definite international flair as she gets involved first with a Norwegian ship’s officer but soon appears to rebound, ooh-la-la, into the equally enticing arms of a delectable French chef. Even the newly reinvented Uncle Oz has turned himself into the dashing man about town, or so it appears as the flashy red Corvette would seem to indicate and the even flashier redhead on his arm. Unbelievably, Oz might be abandoning bakery treats to brainstorm treatises at a magazine dedicated to all things spooky and strange. If the Sherlocks’ personal upheaval isn’t enough, another death occurs and Finn is called in to determine if somehow the newly deceased might just not be linked to the demise of her personal sheriff. Throw in the capers of the decidedly bacon-flavored zaney Maneys and the hot-to-trot nonagenarian, Eula May Binks, and the Sherlocks, individually and collectively, just might be in danger of losing their grip in Sherlock’s Home: The Adventure of the Indigo Inkster.
PRAISE FOR SHERLOCK’S HOME: THE ADVENTURE OF THE CONTENTIOUS CRONE
Within two chapters this book had grabbed hold of me and I read it whenever I could grab a few minutes, finishing it all too quickly. The book is quirky but in a very endearing and good way. For those of you who recognize that the cozy mystery genre has certain rules, [you] will appreciate the hard work and artistry and, frankly, love, that has gone into this work…
