(or at least, that's what I like to think)
Double booked for death is the first book from the new series “Black cat bookshop mystery” by Ali Brandon (Diane A.S Stuckart), who begun writing acclaimed historical romances as Alexa Smart or Anna Gerard and then moved to the mystery genre with the historical Leonardo Da Vinci series and this latest one.
Published by Berkley Prime Crime (Penguin) on December 2011, this cozy mystery presents a new protagonist, Darla Pettistone, who unexpectedly inherits her Great Aunt bookstore in Brooklyn ( New York), and so she moves from Texas to there to start a new life. The bookstore comes with an impertinent black cat, named Hamlet, who seems to have a keen eye for resolving mysteries like the one Darla finds herself involved in, when the bestselling author Valerie Young dies in a signing at the bookstore. While the police seem to agree that her death has been an accident, Darla and her friend -and ex-cop- Jacqueline aren’t convinced about it, and so they begin to investigate to find out that nothing is what it seems…..
Stuckart has created a promising start for this new series, a charming and entertaining mystery with a perfect pleasant bookshop ambiance, credible but yet not too evil characters when needed, without forgetting about the lovely ones like the old Mary Ann and a smart but arrogant and mischievous black cat named Hamlet to top it all. A really addictive cozy read to enjoy in a winter evening.
