Publication Date: October 24, 2017
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Recommended If You Like: historical mysteries, strong female protagonists, humor
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review
Lola Woodby was a member of high society, but is now a private detective. She and her detective partner, Berta, are called to a mansion to retrieve an errant trophy, but find themselves drawn into a murder mystery with plenty of suspects.
What I Liked:
This book is just plain fun. Lola and Berta are clever, quick, and funny, and they have highly entertaining adventures as they work to solve the mystery.
Prohibition-era New York and its surrounding towns really come alive as well.
Anything I Didn't Like?
There really isn't much not to enjoy with this read. It's just a fun book. If anything, I would say it's not particularly memorable, which doesn't mean I didn't enjoy myself while reading it.
If you are looking for a quick, fun, historical mystery read, this is a good one to pick up. It won't take you long, and you'll find yourself laughing as you work to solve the crime along two strong women.
