4.5 Stars - Death on Windmill Way is the first book in a new cozy mystery series. The book is set in East Hampton during the off season, which then means it’s set in a small little town. I love cozy mysteries about small little towns.

Antonia has recently just moved to the Hamptons, bought the Inn, and opened up the Inn’s restaurant. During service one night she finds out that all of the Inn’s previous owners have had suspicious deaths and it gets her investigating into them. Then odd things start happening at the Inn and she’s worried that someone is out to get her next.

The cast of characters are really good and I actually guessed “who done it” fairly early on (although I started to second guess myself near the end!). The only thing that I didn’t like about the book is that the author is very detailed in her descriptions, which made this a longer read. I know some people like very detailed books, but I would have liked a little less.

Overall though, I will definitely read the next book and I definitely recommend it to my fellow cozy mystery lovers. ( )

Not just a new beginning, but a new enterprise sends Antonia Bingham from her life in California to the East Coast at the urging of her best friend Genevieve. The East Hamptons, although bustling with summer people 100 days of the year, turns into regular small town in the off season. Antonia's new inn/restaurant are struggling as any new business will, with vendors, staff, hours and ideas constantly looked at. Belatedly, she learns of the 'curse' of the inn, and with her interest piqued, Antonia can't help but investigate the two most recent innkeepers deaths. A wide variety of well described characters and suspects appear, with everything leading to a Poirot-like summons at the end. Doyle seems to tie the cozy genre to a bit more meatier mystery, hope there is more to come. ( )
