5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a Gem! 15 Dec. 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the most entertaining books I have read in a long time. Set in a bed and breakfast establishment in a small town in California, this cozy murder mystery is all that one could wish for in the genre. With no messy about the author pitches the reader head first into the deep end of the mystery. Grace Cassidy, the heroine, along with a cast of wonderful and colourful characters keep the reader enthralled and entertained from start to finish. The dialogue is slick and fast with plenty of humour. I can usually work out who the killer is in this genre but this time I was surprised at the outcome. I want to read more of Jackie Kings books in Kindle. I hope there will be more. I am now a firm fan of hers. I give 5 stars - so well-deserved.

1.0 out of 5 stars The inconvenient corpse 5 Aug. 2014
By Zyrini
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Characters lacked depth, and their relationship to each other was sickly sweet unbelievably twee. The story content was very disjointed and didn't flow very well. Any author that needs to throw in designer labels to their descriptive narrative lacks an ability to describe an item and demonstrates a shallow value way of life, not everyone aspires to own overpriced consumer products.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cozy Mystery 27 July 2014
By Tricia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book quite quickly. It was an easy and not demanding read. It was what I think is termed a cozy mystery. Anyway the story flowed well once underway and I liked Grace and Sam the H/h. I think a lot of the background not necessary to this tale will be used in the rest of the series. It was good to read about the beginnings of a middle aged romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Inconvenient Corpse 16 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was an excellent addition to my holiday! I really enjoyed it.
It was not too complicated but was interesting enough to grip the reader. My first book on my Kindle, after this surprising introduction there will be many more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look no further for a true mystery read. 1 Feb. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a delight. The dialogue is slick and fast flowing. I felt so at home with the believable quirky, colourful characters that they almost felt like friends by the time I had finished the book. The B&B setting was intriguing. Grace handled her dimise admirably and like most women got on with what life had thrown at her with humour. I liked watching her grow as she also discovers an inner strength. Although I'm a crime writer myself and Jackie King told all, I truly didn't guess who the killer was in advance. Can't wait for the next one! Excellent!
