Mystery

A Genuine Fix by J.C. Kenney

It has been a while since my last review and although I have been reading in the time that has passed, I was not in the ‘mood’ to write. The quality of output at such a time would have been boring at best so I hope as I wait for my flight to be called, I might put together a better review than usual even if it is briefer.

We have here a small town with lovable characters and a protagonist with an interesting job that she does not make light of and gives us the whole picture. This is the second book in a cozy series and although it might have been a bonus if I read the first book, I felt like I had enough background with all the good-natured jabs that everyone gave each other. Allie Cobb is the local hero because she singlehandedly solved the case in the previous one and there seems to have been a lot of action involved! She has close friends and has a meaningful relationship with family. The quirky part is her cat who likes being walked like a dog and probably solves the case before her owner does. Straight off the bat, death makes its way into the tale and unfortunately, Allie is a suspect.

Now the reasoning behind the suspicions may seem a little far-fetched and the entire case seemed a little forced to me but I loved the narration. I liked the interaction between all the people we are introduced to, the chain of events that constantly circle back to our leading lady. The cat made colourful scenarios very interesting. I would recommend this book to people who are used to this genre because it does a good job of entertaining.

I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
