This is the second hilarious book in the Red Herring Mysteries series by Dana Dratch. Some of the things that Alex and her brother Nick get into are just so funny, and I can easily picture this as a comedy-mystery on TV. I love this writer’s style too, just the wording of some things or descriptions make me chuckle. I can’t wait for the next book!
My Goodreads review:
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh my goodness, I think this one was even better than the first one. There were several mysteries going on all at once, some disappearing bodies and a possible art theft. Not to mention that a baby had mysteriously appeared in Alex’s house. Her brother took to the baby immediately which had her wondering if it was his. Then a guy she was working with at the newspaper claimed that his niece was out to kill him and like before, Alex ended up with a houseful of guests, including the one-of-a-kind Baba, her Russian grandmother, who was more than welcome this time, since the baby loved her and now he would actually stop crying.
This was a pretty exciting mystery and not everyone was who they seemed to be. Alex even got that impression about her own father who had gone on a business trip ten years ago and died of a heart attack. Now her charming British neighbor who owned the B&B across the street was giving her cause not to quite trust him. Her brother Nick’s bakery business was booming though. These are definitely some unforgettable characters, and I’m so glad I found this series. The main mysteries were cleared up, but we were left with a couple of things to think about. Then after reading the preview included for the next book “Red Hot”, that’s making me seriously anxious for when it comes out.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
