Slueth with baby makes for a funny cozy mystery

  • Mar 26, 2011
"Formula for Murder" is a humorous "who-done-it" mystery. It's the third novel in the series, but you don't need to have read the previous novels to understand this one. Also, reading the books out of order won't spoil the previous mysteries.

The novel was fast-paced and a fun read. The suspense came from sorting out the clues of who-done-it and why, the ever-increasing body count, and the need for Kate to get all her Christmas things done before Christmas while also solving the mystery.

The details about Kate's first-time mommy moments and her learning to be a private investigator brought the story alive in my imagination. Kate, her family, and her friends were engaging and interesting. The characters were realistic, through most didn't come across as particularly deep (which is fine for a humorous novel).

There was a very minor amount of bad language. There were no sex scenes, though people having sex was sometimes referred to or implied. Overall, I'd recommend this well-written, enjoyable novel.

I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
