This is a Brand New Series
A retired schoolteacher—and yes, daughter of a Fitzgerald fan—Daisy Buchanan has found her calling in the village of Millbury, Pennsylvania. While her husband endlessly renovates their old house, Daisy happily presides over Sometimes a Great Notion, a quirky shop that sells sewing bits and bobs, antiques, and jewelry.
Daisy was a likable character for me. When her friend, Angus, is accused of murder, she pulls out all the stops to prove that he didn't do it, even after everyone else in the town wrote him off, even his wife. I think this story was pretty realistic in the fact that the small town sheriff, who had a grudge against Angus, didn't want to look into the possibility that Angus was innocent. I think that happens a lot in small towns. When a detective from New York is brought on the case, Angus is found innocent, but we still don't know who the murderer is. Daisy still has to solve the case.
Full of quirky characters that I am looking forward to meeting again, I am anxiously waiting for the next book in the Deadly Notions Mystery series. If you are looking for a quick read that leaves you guessing and has a great small town vibe, then this is the story for you. Great job Cate.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
