Welcome back to Fig Harbor, Washington home to amateur sleuth Lemon Layne, the best Sherlock Holmes wannabe west of the Mississippi!
No way. Vampires aren't real. Period! Or are they?
Find out in Play That Funky Music White Koi from USA Today bestselling cozy mystery author Dakota Cassidy. Play That Funky Music White Koi is packed with twists, turns, and suspects that will keep you guessing.
My tiny town of Fig Harbor's just recovering from our last tango with murder, only to be faced with yet another--and this time, it sure looks an awful lot like a vampire's on the loose in the PNW.
Vampires are just Twilight fiction, right?
I'm not so sure after a murder victim is found in my koi pond right next to my favorite fish, Koi George, (not good!) with bite marks on her neck, and a gothic antique chalice next to her body with blood residue.
By now, everyone knows I can't keep my nose out of a good mystery. But when I literally stumble upon an important clue linking a town official to the murder and what looks like a real live vampire cult, I decide it's time to gather up all the garlic I can buy and put my sleuthing shoes back on!”
This contemporary cozy mystery has it all, from the local doomsday prepper to an out of control pet monkey, a mother who would drive a saint to drink, and of course a dead body in the Koi pond.
Here is what I thought
This is a fun book, I mean just look at that title. 🙂 If you want to laugh and still have a decent murder mystery then you should try this series! 🙂
Lemon Layne isn’t looking to get into any more murder mysteries but then Cappie comes to her house and they discover a dead body in her Koi pond. Of course, Cappie who is the fun loving conspiracy theorist sees that she has two punctures in her neck, starts speaking of vampires!! You just got to love Cappie!
Lemon really doesn’t want to get involved but when someone dies in your Koi pond how could you not be curious and want to find out what happened. She can’t help it if people talk to her and she finds out all about Amy from her friends and they were into alternative medicines, etc.
I really like Lemon as she is a fun character but I really love the side characters like Cappie as he cracks me up! It also has a pretty decent mystery for being only 4 hour and 40 minute listen. I just let the killer slip through my fingers as I just didn’t suspect that person and it should have been pretty obvious…lol. 🙂
If you love wacky and zany characters then you should try this series. It’s great after you have listened to something heavy and need a light crazy book. 🙂
I am getting to where I enjoy Hollie Jackson more and more with each read. She does a good job with this series.
