Mission to Murder

Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
One thing this book taught me is never to argue with anyone in public. Once that person turns up dead, you are the prime suspect! This is what happens to Jill after an argument with the obnoxious man who was disputing her claims that the home she inherited is on the ruins of a mission. When he is murdered, even Jillâ€™s detective boyfriend has to ask her if she has an alibi! There is a lot going on in this quaint little tourist town. Jill canâ€™t help but get in the middle of the search for the killer, but what if the killer finds her first? This is an enjoyable tale, more for the delightful characters, especially the quirky Aunt Jackie, and the day-to-day life in this tourist town than for the mystery.
Another great book by Ms. Cahoon.
A good read, good character development but weak on the mystery side.
Jill, Jill, Jill. You are silly. But I found you less annoying in this book, slightly. Your boyfriend Greg is amazing and is very much like my husband. You need to lock that down, stat.
Jill finds herself smack in the middle of a murder, and is once again the prime suspect. Seriously? I think there are 400 people in this town, and Jill is always stepping in it. Add the Scooby Doo-style wrap up with the villains at the end and I had to deduct a half star.
However, I am a sucker for a quick mystery, so I will of course read book 3. Feel free to judge me! 2 1/2 stars, rounding up to 3 because I love Greg and her dog Emma.
