3.0 out of 5 stars May Day
I picked this up for free. There's no way I would pay over £10 for this.
It was a reasonable enough read. The character, Mina was nice enough, although a little too "brave" at times. I'm not sure what small town America is like, but I thought it a bit too much that she knew everyone in town within a month.
I would read another by this author, but not at this...

This review is from: May Day (Murder-by-Month Mysteries, No. 1): A Murder-by-Month Mystery (The Murder-By-Month Mysteries) (Kindle Edition)
Mira James has just lost her job and found her boyfriend cheating on her, thus when a friend from Battle Lake asks her to house sit for her she has nothing else to do. Getting a job at the library in the small town and helping out on the local paper she has money coming in, and when a man, Jeff, appears in town to check out some land for a company she has found love.

It all sounds just peachy, that is until Jeff is found on the floor of the library with a bullet through his head. Mira decides to do some investigating herself, especially when the local police chief doesn't really seem to be pulling all the stops out. Battle Lake may seem all nice and cosy, but there is a lot going on beneath the surface, and Mira finds herself shocked to find grudges and nuttiness wherever she seems to look. With a surreal party of geriatrics and anonymous warnings to keep away from the case, will Mira really get to the bottom of who killed Jeff, and why?

This is a humorous tale with some really weird sexual shenanigans that I personally think is aimed more at the female market than most of these types of books, although so saying I did enjoy this. If you want a good little mystery that won't tax you too much, with some good humour thrown in, then this will do the job. Mira James returns in the next novel, June Bug (Murder-by-Month Mysteries, No. 2): A Murder-by-month Mystery.

I chose this book because it sounded very interesting, but I have not read it yet, as I have many more books that I have to read before I get to this one.
