Mackenzie Almeida's only experience with murder investigations is limited to the cozy mysteries she reads on Cape Cod with her local book group, the Cozy Capers. But when both she and her brother become suspects in a murder, Mac summons help from her Cozy Capers co-investigators and a library's worth of tips and tricks. This is one mystery where Mac is hoping for anything but a surprise ending... (Summary via Goodreads)
I totally knew who did it ...... no only kidding !!! I had NO idea. And that is what makes a GREAT cozy mystery and Maddie Day knows how to capture the reader from the first word on the first page until the very last word and the reader has closed the book for the last time. And she doesn't waste any time.....
In Murder on Cape Cod, the first book in her new series A Cozy Capers Book Group Mystery, you have the murder taking place immediately. By the time you have read 5 pages, you are already invested in the story. You have met the main character Mackenzie "Mac" Almeida and her book group. You have already witnessed a confrontation between Mac and Jake....the murder victim and you are ready to solve the case. Lucky for you Mac and her book group are ready also !!
In Murder on Cape Cod there is so much that will appeal to you....you will love the town and all the cute shops, you will love Mac, her boyfriend Tim, her friends, family and we cannot forget her bird, Belle. You will admire Mac for being a strong independent take charge woman who will do anything for family, friends and her community. And the way Mac and her Cozy Capers Book Group take charge and investigate Jake's murder is quite inspiring.....but I, myself, will just read cozies and leave the investigating to the police.
I fell in love with this new series by Maddie Day and look forward to many more great books in this series. I now have another great place to visit and amazing people to hang around with. One of the many things I love about reading books and especially books in a series....you ALWAYS have a place to go and people to hang around with.....and you don't have to pack or leave the comforts of home.
