Why this book?:
I enjoyed the first book in the series and was interested in reading more. Plus books and book discussions and cozy mystery and a cover with a cute cat...
The League of Literary Ladies have been reading A Tale of Two Cities. Like the first book in this series, I have not read this classic (yet). That did not detract from my enjoyment of the story, (though I know even less about Dickens's book and needed all the details provided throughout). The town is even more immersed in literature than usual because they are having a special Bastille festival, complete with a Dickens impersonator competition.
Between the various Charles Dickens, the re-named formerly big rock boy band members, and the locals there are plenty of suspects when the chaos-causing and much-hated handyman Richie is murdered.
So you can rather guess who the culprit is (although there is actually more than one mystery) due to some pretty large hints. But plenty of twists - and suspects - keep you from being too sure, so that was okay.
Bea Cartwright is settling in. Her B&B is doing well. She is keeping a truce with her neighbors and book discussion group (dare I say she has even become friends with them?). She and Levi have more potential for developing a relationship. The fly in the ointment is that Bea is STILL not sharing anything from her past life with anybody. And can all these budding friendships survive on secrets?
Anyway, I look forward to reading the third book in the series. And maybe by then I'll have read some of these classics.
