Stormi Nelson, best-selling romance author, moved into her huge Victorian house in the private community of Oak Meadows Estates. When her agent tells her that her characters are becoming too cardboard and that she needs to get out and mingle with people, she comes up with the idea of a Neighborhood Watch Program. The only problem is … she’s the only member. On her first night of patrol, she stumbles over a dead body, meets a hunky detective, who happens to be her neighbor and clearly frustrated with her, and her mother, sister, niece and nephew arrive to shake up Stormi’s peaceful life. As she is immersed ever deeper into the mystery surrounding a neighbor’s murder, she decides to change writing tactics and write a romantic mystery based on her experiences. What follows is a frolicking good time as Stormi finds herself the nosiest neighbor of them all. Can she find the killer before she becomes the next victim?
My take on this book:
I love cozy mysteries, and when there is humor, a splash of romance that's even better. The main character is a romance writer who turns sleuth when she finds a dead body in her neighborhood. Plenty of twists and a not so easy to solve mystery made this a page turner that isn't easy to put down. As a fan of good clean reads this one certainly fit the bill. I feel like Cynthia Hickey has hit a home run with the first book in her Nosey Neighbor Mystery series, and I for one will certainly be watching for the next installment in the series!
