  • Cornish Coast

    Motts, a self described asexual autistic woman, lives with her Sphynx cat Cactus and turtle Moss, in a cottage on the Cornish coast. (My mental image of this area is from the Doc Martin series, which was filmed on the Cornish coast.) Walking on the beach one day, she sees a body float by; it turns out to be an old woman who went missing three years ago. With the help of her friends in the small town and several kind police officers, Motts is determined to learn more. This is part of a series, but it can easily be read as a stand-alone. I really like this unique and appealing protagonist, with her unusual career as a paper crafter. The town residents are varied (gay, straight, autistic, non-white) and everyone gets along--sounds very much like a place I'd like to live.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A feel good read with a whodunit

    Poor Motts, she finally faces her fears after almost being knocked off the cliff into the ocean and on her first stroll along the path she finds a body in the water. It turns out it was an older woman who disappeared more than three years before, yet her body looks like she just died last week. Motts is starting to think she attracts dead bodies. While telling herself to let it go, Motts can’t help being nosy and trying to figure out who killed the older woman. She was an invalid and couldn’t go out, so where has she been all this time? That’s what Motts and her friends intend to figure out, all while hoping Motts is safe from the killer. After all, Motts wants to find the killer, not become the next victim. I really adore this series. Motts shows us how functionally autistic people live their lives and helps to show how sounds, noise, crowds, etc impact their daily life. Having an autistic nephew, I love seeing the positive sides portrayed rather than the negative or only those who cannot function. Kudos for one of the best protagonists today. I’ll be keeping na eye out for Pickled Petunia to come out!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A satisfying second entry

    Endearing protagonist. Charming supporting cast. Mouth-watering food descriptions. What more could you ask for?
