The Advice Column Murders

March 07, 2018

After talking about the subgenre "cozy mystery" with a co-worker I got curious and decided I had to read one.  So when The Advice Column Murders by Leslie Nagel came to my attention as an Advance Reading Copy I requested it immediately.  And I wasn't disappointed.  I feel it was a great introduction to the format of crime fiction with less emphasis on sex, violence, and gore. Charley Carpenter is the local, small town girl with a sharp mind and a desire to solve crime. She has a great boyfriend, who is on the local police force, and a circle of friends. Charley is in the process of expanding her small business when a young woman is murdered. And this is where all the facts of the weird world come undone.  Good thing we have Charley to figure it out.  A quick, easy read. My first cozy- done! Probably not my last.


I received this as an Advance Reading Copy. Thanks Alibi and Net Galley.
