October 4th 2018
A baker who sees the dead. One too many suitors.
And a killer. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.
STANDALONE novel. *A laugh out loud cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore* This book can be enjoyed on its own without reading the other books in the series but for the full experience they are fun to read in order!
My name is Lottie Lemon and I see dead people. Okay, so I rarely see dead people, mostly I see furry creatures of the dearly departed variety, aka dead pets, who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owners impending doom.
Trust me when I say this is not a good sign. So, when I spot an adorable, fuzzy, little squirrel skipping around at the grand opening for my new bakery, I about lose it, until I realize it’s a perky little poltergeist only visible to yours truly. But there are so many people at the grand opening it’s hard to discern who exactly might be in danger—that is, until I follow the little creature right out the back and straight into another homicide. It’s horrible to see your friend lying there vacant of life. Honey Hollow will never be the same.
Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see dead pets—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in the occasional ghost of the human variety, a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with.
Living in the small town of Honey Hollow can be murder.
** Read as part of the Murder in the Mix Boxed Set. **
Bobbing for Bodies is book two in the Murder in the Mix series by Addison Moore.
It’s the grand opening of Lottie Lemon’s bakery, she’s dating Noah, her mom has a boyfriend, and her friend Hunter is found dead behind her bakery.
In this novel we see how insecure Lottie is in her relationship with Noah. The romance and romance issues are more front and center then the mystery. We do do some sleuthing around with Lottie and it was surprising some of the secrets we learn about Hunter, but the romance was out their more then the mystery. I prefer it to be the other way around in my cozy mysteries.
Lottie still hasn’t told Noah her secret. On the other hand we do spend a lot of time with Everette, Noah’s step-brother. He has a way of getting people to tell their secrets and he has figured out Lottie’s. I liked spending time with Everette, but I was unsure if they were going to have a thing or if it was a friend thing. It almost felt like we might get a love-triangle and I’m glad we don’t. I don’t like triangles.
We also see more of her mom who now has a boyfriend after years of just dating and not being serious about a relationship. And, of course she’s concerned that the new guy isn’t what he seems.
All and all Bobbing for Bodies was an ok cozy mystery.
Rated: 3 Stars
