Book Review: “Braking for Bodies” by Duffy Brown (Cycling Path Mystery #2)


Title:  Braking for Bodies

Author:  Duffy Brown

Series:  Cycle Path Mystery #2

Synopsis (from  Evie Bloomfield puts the pedal to the metal—in the latest Cycle Path mystery from the national bestselling author of Geared for the Grave.

Moving from Los Angeles to small, picturesque Mackinac Island to work in a bike shop might seem crazy, but Evie knows it’s the best decision she’s ever made. That’s not to say she’s gotten rid of all her stress; after all, the upcoming Lilac Festival has everyone in town riding in circles.

But things really go downhill when a ferry full of tourists—including Evie’s friend Fiona’s former boss, the editor of a sleazy rag in LA—arrives on the island. No one knows why Peephole Perry came all the way to Mackinac, but things aren’t looking good for Fiona when Peep is found dead. Now Evie has to gear up and get a grip on the truth if she wants to clear her friend’s name…


My thoughts:  This is book #2 in the great Cycle Path Mystery series.  I absolutely love this series – and frankly can’t wait for book #3 to come out – hint hint to the author!!!

The main character, Evie, offers a strong female lead – independent, witty, moments of hilarity!

I love the cast of characters including their quirks and humor.   As I said in my review of book #1 – I love the very descriptive nature of the setting of Mackinac Island.  I’ve never been there and am just really loving reading about the island and the atmosphere of Mackinac Island.

Overall, a great, fun mystery with great characters and an excellent setting.  The perfect recipe for a great cozy mystery series.

And remember,

Books Are Life,
