Review: Murder in the Mystery Suite #cozymystery #amreading

Murder in the Mystery Suite 

Synopsis
Jane is the manager of a resort that caters to book lovers. In order to draw more visitors, she decides to organize a themed Murder and Mayhem week. When a guest ends up dead and it looks less and less like an accident, Jane is on a mission to find out who did the dirty deed and why.
All the while, Jane is also juggling her responsibilities as a single mother of two young boys and caregiver of her aunt who is not in the best health.

Opinion
This is a cozy mystery for bibliophiles. The story flows well and makes for easy reading. The villain should have been obvious to me but there were enough twists and red herrings to make it interesting.

Aunt Octavia was my favorite character. She might have been elderly, but she was very feisty.

This was a book club pick. I probably would not have chosen this book on my own.  That being said, it was entertaining. I am glad that I got it and was introduced to this world. I want to read the rest of the books in the series to see what other adventures Jane encounters. Plus, I want to see how her love interest develops. You know I am always looking for a love story.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. I am not usually one to recommend cozy mysteries, but I loved this one. I think it is because I was reminiscing to back in the day when I would watch Murder She Wrote with my mom. The additional plot twists added a little something extra that makes me want to read the rest of the books in the series.
