Series: Pookotz Sisters Mystery
Richard Forester, a retired CEO for a major software company, and his granddaughter Penny show up at the Pookotz Bed & Breakfast one evening and find themselves in some rather unpleasant company. All the guests somehow seem to be connected to Richard’s past and when he is found dead the next morning, everyone is suspect. However, there are a few wrinkles that the inn’s owners Edna and Mildred Pookotz need to iron out as the investigation unfolds. Not only was Richard deathly ill, but he was also accused of embezzling $750,000 which is still unaccounted for. The local Sheriff suspects that this victim’s death is not a natural one, so he–and the sisters–set forth to discover who the murderer is.
My thoughts: I enjoyed this book. It is a nice little cozy mystery that will keep you guessing. It is very much reminiscent of playing the game of Clue if you will – all of the possible suspects for the murder of Richard Forester are under house arrest in one place, namely The Pookotz sisters bed and breakfast. Each of the suspects has plenty of motive and means, but who really did it and how. I think the answer will surprise you!!!!
I found this book a light, refreshing mystery read. It moves along very quickly and introduces us to some spunky new cozy mystery characters! What will the Pookotz sisters find themselves involved in next? We will have to stay tuned to find out.
A nice, light, fun, and fast-paced cozy mystery! If you are in to cozies, definitely give it a try.
