Deception in Strange Places

A Kelly O'Connell Mystery, #5

Judy Alter gives fans and sleuth Kelly O'Connell a brand new adventure to enjoy with this suspenseful cozy mystery. I love Ms. Lorna and Keisha, in fact I once again found all the secondary characters to be interesting and entertaining. I'm so fond of this author's style and voice, she takes me straight into the action while making me feel part of Kelly's extended family. The mystery itself isn't too hard or too easy to solve or follow and I enjoyed spending my rainy evening witnessing Kelly getting herself into trouble. I cannot wait to see just what she manages to get up to next. If cozy, mysteries are amongst your favorites then I recommend giving this one a read.
