Not quite what I was looking for after Ausma Zehanat Khan, but entertaining ( )

A little bit more of a cozy than I thought it would be. I still enjoyed it but I am not a huge fan of the cozy mystery. If you are you might like it more. ( )

At just under 200 pages, this first book in the Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James mystery series was a bit lightweight. Set in a country hotel, every guest is a suspect and as one murder leads to another, everyone must be questioned. Kincaid, who is with Scotland Yard, is actually at the hotel on holiday and inserts himself into the investigation with predictable response from the local police force. The final conflict takes place in a predictable setting as well. The second it was mentioned I knew where the story was headed.

These tropes have all been used in any number of mysteries or TV crime dramas. And yet I enjoyed the book, especially the Duncan and Gemma team, and look forward to seeing them again in the next installment. ( )
