This was an adrenaline-filled start to a new series. We are introduced to our lead protagonist in bits and pieces. Every time you think you know something about Epiphany Bloom (Pip), she adds a missing bit to the current information about her previous jobs to change the tone of the incidents. This latter part involved me changing my mind about her multiple times as well.
Pip has no income, her mother is hounding her, her sister is more than a little scatterbrained. They altogether constitute a very vibrant supporting cast. The plot begins with a bit of impromptu impersonation followed by some more identities to be juggled while working on a missing child. Finally, I must mention the plastic angle was well handled. I was initially baffled by its introduction but then ended up liking the twist.
My friend Rekha also liked it and reviewed it: here.
This is a cozy mystery with all the misadventures possible thrown in including and not limited to a possible future love triangle. I reserved my judgement in the rating because I want to see what the next instalment has in store for me.
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
