I really enjoyed this cozy! I love the fact Deanna is no shrinking flower and speaks her mind and doesn’t beat around the bush! She’s smart, kind and total badass when she wants to be. She takes everything that is literally thrown at her and then some!
I love what the character Ivy whose is our resident Drag Queen brings to the table she brings sass fierness and is hilarious! A girl should be so lucky to inherit a Drag queen! I will say I like my cozy’s to be filled to the brim with snark and there is a good amount in the story but I would have loved to see more especially when it came to Deanna and Ivy cause that is a snark attack waiting to happen!
What i especially enjoy while reading this book was the way Deanna interacted with ghost. She is constantly visited by the departed and she takes it like a pro. Diving in head first into a murderer’s head and giving all she has to find him before he kills another little girl or ultimately her! There are plenty of plot twists and turns and surprise when you least expect them! This is a perfect read for a cozy reading spot with some tea and get lost in!
A loyal Chicago girl who loves deep dish pizza, the Cubs, and the Lake, CC Dragon is fascinated by mysteries, sleuthing, as well as the supernatural. The southern connection comes in because her sister moved down there and the material was too fun and entertaining not to set a series there.
CC loves creating characters, especially amateur sleuths who solve crimes in their spare time. A coffee and chocolate addict who loves fast cars, she’s still looking for a hero who likes to cook and clean…so she can write more!
