Meet Mikki Bridgewater, the owner of Mountain Lights Candle & Gifts, in Pine Ridge, West Virginia. Mikki is busy getting ready for the Bloom into Spring festival when her small town is rocked with the murder of Jamie Nicole Martin. Jamie’s body was found among her prize winning rose bushes, bludgeoned to death. Jamie was a mean spirited and vindictive rumor monger with only one real friend. When the murder weapon is found hidden in the garage of Mikki’s best friend, Meg, Mikki knows the killer is covering their tracks. Mikki loves her forensic crime TV shows and puts her knowledge to work to find the real killer. Officer Paul Richards and his team interview every person in the town with mixed results. He has had a thing for Mikki and she him, since their school days but neither has every admitted it out loud! When her unassuming visit to ask a question, turns into a deadly confrontation with the killer, Mikki wonders if she will live to finish her window display for the Bloom into Spring festival’s Best Window Display. I found that the characters were well fleshed out for a first in a series book. There was enough background on them and the town in general to give us an entertaining adventure. The murder plot was certainly original. The book is written in the first person, with Mikki, Paul and the killer each taking a chapter and giving us their viewpoint. I totally enjoyed this debut cozy and I can’t wait for the next book. Small southern town humor comes thru with some very funny results that will make you smile. I think any cozy mystery lover will enjoy this new author and series!
