There is nothing I love more than making new friends, and that is just how it feels when I start a new cozy mystery series. I love getting to know the new people and their world. I very happy to be able to tell you about a wonderful new group of friends to get to know in The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco, which is the first in a new series by Laura DiSilverio.
From the Cover: Amy-Faye has always loved her idyllic Rocky Mountain town of Heaven, Colorado. Her event-planning business is thriving, her fellow book-obsessed Readaholics are great, and her parents live only a few blocks away. But lately her hometown has felt a little less heavenly. First, she agrees to plan a wedding without realizing the groom is her ex-boyfriend. Then, Ivy, one of her fellow Readaholics, dies suddenly under mysterious circumstances.
The police rule Ivy’s death a suicide by poisoning, but Amy-Faye and the remaining Readaholics suspect foul play. Amy-Faye soon discovers that Ivy was hiding dangerous secrets—and making deadly enemies. Taking a page from her favorite literary sleuths, Amy-Faye is determined to find the real killer and close the book on this case. But finding the truth could spell her own ending…
My Thoughts: Laura DiSilverio has created a beautiful town that I would love to visit, and she has populated it with fun characters that are just the type of people you would want in your own book club. Her attention to detail and sense of humor makes this story really come to life as it unfolds at a beautiful pace.
I also really enjoyed that if you were paying attention you could have solved the mystery. There was no backhanded ah-ha moment. If you are looking to get in on a new series this one promises to be a joy to read. I personally cannot wait to see how things unfold for Amy-Faye and her friends.
