Plateful of Murder: A Terrified Detective Mystery 1st in Series Cozy Mystery Publisher: Ink Lion Books (January 8, 2016) Print Length: 278 pages ASIN: B01ADH8JTS
Synopsis: Private Detective Claire DeNardo is afraid of everything. Simple things like balloons, roller coasters, and hairpieces make her knees knock loud enough to be a band’s rhythm section. Unfortunately, the only job Claire can find is working for her Uncle Gino in his seedy detective agency. Until now, her cases have all been middle-aged men with trophy wives who needed watching. But Claire gets swept up in a murder case despite being afraid of conflict, bodily harm, and hurting anyone’s feelings. She enlists a jaded security guard, Ed, to help her. But when Ed is attacked and left comatose, Claire must stumble along by herself. Both the client who hired her and the handsome police detective want her off the case. When the wrong person is charged, it’s up to the terrified detective, to summon all the courage she can to find the true killer.
My thoughts: What a roller-coaster ride and a fun ride it was. I really liked the main character being afraid of her job you hardly read things like this in a book. I can’t wait to read more by this author and this series.
