Death In Dark Blue

Death in Dark Blue - Julia Buckley

Author: Julia Buckley

Rating: 3.5 stars


Book Blurb: It had spoilers from the first book so I removed it. 


This was a pretty good follow up to the first book. The overall mystery arc is being expanded and really is the thrust of this series so far, though there are secondary murder mysteries to be solved apparently. The hero worship between the MC and her mentor has died down so that was a definite plus. 


A warning if you don't like cliffhanger endings and want to wait until the next book comes out  - you will want to do that here. And what a cliff hanger it was- pretty weighty mystery for a cozy, but I will play along. You have my attention.


Overall a nice beach read on my honeymoon,  with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. I will admit, I do like Ms. Buckley's Undercover Dish series a bit better.
