The last thing Katie Bonner wanted was to become the manager of Artisans Alley. But when her business partner, Ezra Hilton, is found bludgeoned to death, she has no other choice. Business under Ezra has been faltering-but was it enough to provoke someone to murder? Only Katie can find the answer.
This was my first book by this author and even though I had one issue with it I really enjoyed it as it had a good solid mystery.
What I thought of this book.
When Ezra is killed Katie finds out that she is part owner in Artisan Square a place where artist sell their pieces. Katie finds out that she is part owner in the Artisan Square now and has to try and figure out what to do with it and how it can stay afloat. She also tries to find out who killed Ezra and there are a few likely candidates.
The Crafty Killing has a solid mystery that was really good, but I would say the one thing I didn’t care for much was how Katie thought she knew more than the Detective. Yes, at moments he really didn’t seem like his head was in the game but when she finds out why, she feels really bad. In the end the Detective was really trying to figure things out and cared about her safety.
Over all, I really enjoyed this one and if you like cozy mysteries you might give it a try, but if your not into none police who think they no better than the police you might not like it.
Jorjeana Marie did a real good job with this and I enjoyed her as a narrator.
