I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and here it is:
Author Jessie Chandler always hits my funny bone. I’d never heard of cozy mysteries before starting this series, and now I’m seriously hooked. Her latest book in the Shay O’Hanlon series, Blood Money Murder, is seriously feeding my addiction.
Life is never easy for Shay, co-owner of the popular coffee shop and bakery, The Rabbit Hole. This Saint Patrick’s Day, her crusty but caring surrogate mother, Eddy, is visited by two unsavory characters. Shay is immediately protective, but doesn’t understand the significance of their threats until she and her half-sister are kidnapped by two leprechaun disguised thugs.
Handcuffed to irritating, favor currying Lisa and trapped in the basement of an abandoned house in the middle of nowhere, Shay has to fight her way free of jealousy before they can attempt an escape from their bonds. JT Bordeaux, her long-suffering policewoman lover, risks everything she’s ever worked for to search for her missing girlfriend.
The usual posse of delightful characters rally around. Sweet geniuses Tulip and Rocky, and Coop, Shay’s oddball friend from childhood, jump in with their brand of genuinely funny detective work. Together, they tackle a thirty year-old robbery and murder completely unaware that it’s one of their own who has the biggest confession to make.
Blood Money Murder earns five stars. I recommend this book to everyone as a delightful read, and a perfect gift for lighthearted mystery lovers.
