Cozy readers, you are in for a sweet peach of a treat with this first book in the new Georgia Peach Mystery series. Author Susan Furlong has created a wonderful series with colorful characters, and a mystery that will keep you entranced until the very last page.
Protagonist Nola Mae Harper is a perfectly imperfect character which makes her so relatable. Poor Nola, she’s back home after traveling the world and before she can even adjust, she finds a body. While of course Nola takes part in the investigation (what good cozy heroine wouldn’t?), Ms. Furlong didn’t write Nola being a know it all. She stumbled with finding the truth like anyone inexperienced would.
The cast of supporting characters is like a bushel of peaches…some sweet, some bitter, and some hiding behind too much fuzz. ;-) Buy all are juicy to read and make for a perfect blend.
The writing in this story is crisp and clear. The words flow as surely as the author’s pen must have over the paper she wrote one (or her fingers on the keyboard). J It will be so hard for you to not read PEACHES AND SCREAM in one sitting. Yeah, it’s that hard to put down.
Oh, and each chapter starts with a delightful Georgia Belle fac. I wanted to go through the book and read them all at once!
PEACHES AND SCREAM is no doubt one of the top new cozies of 2015. Well done Ms. Furlong. Brava!
