When Jill discovered a significant historical site in her back yard she found herself at odds with Craig Thomas who takes the lions share of the towns funding for that sort of thing. With the possibly corrupt mayor siding with Thomas and evidence suggesting that the site in question was actually somewhere else things aren’t looking good for her getting the funding to preserve the site.
Then Thomas shows up dead and suddenly Jill is a suspect. It’s left to her to investigate and find the real killer before the killer turns his attention to her.
I generally read two or three books a week, but for a couple of weeks I’ve had the flu and that’s slowed me down a fair bit. I’ll literally read a couple of pages and then fall asleep. All that goes to say is that this book has been with me for a while, and if I’m totally honest it’s been a bit of a comfort to me in my miserable self-pitying state.
Mission to Murder really is like a cute shaggy dog sleeping on the end of your bed (thanks to Roscoe for a rare still moment). As a cozy mystery or a book to read on the beach, it’s kind of perfect.
Many thanks to Kensington Books and Netgalley for providing me with this ARC
