Book Review: Mimosas, Mischief, and Murder by Sara Rosett
Ellie Avery and her husband Mitch, travel to his hometown of Smarr Alabama to attend the funeral of Mitch's grandfather. Almost upon arriving, strange things begin to happen, making it seem like his grandfather's death wasn't from natural causes. As each strange thing unfolds, Ellie puts her sleuthing techniques to good use, hoping to find the truth behind these mysterious occurrences.
Mimosas, Mischief, and Murder belongs to a series of mysteries with Ellie Avery as the lead character who acts as a Sherlock Holmes type character. If you've read any type of cozy mystery before, Ellie fits the bill as the typical seemingly know-it-all person who happens to get the right information at the right time. And just like any hero vs. villain story, in the end, the guilty party conveniently spills it all.
Don't get me wrong, I liked this story a lot. Rosett's way of writing pulls the reader in and it's a hard book to put down. She makes Ellie Avery very likable with a personality you would expect, as I said, from a cozy mystery lead character. The Avery family themselves, also lend a lot to the book and each shine through in the story. Any reader could find a resemblance to someone from their own family when reading this book.
Mimosas, Mischief, and Murder is a great summertime read while you're at the beach or pool. If you have a weekend free and want to read something fun, this book is a great choice.
