  • Cold Case, Hot Summer

    When a body is found in the woods, the mother of a young girl missing for more than 20 years shows up on Allie’s doorstep asking for her help in finding her daughter’s killer. While Allie had promised to hang up her sleuthing hat after her last gig, she can’t turn down a grieving mother’s request. The clues lead Allie to local suspects that she has lived with all of her life. Now she has to figure out who thinks they got away with murder 20 years ago, because she’s about to bring them to justice…if they don’t get her first. I read the previous book in this series and wasn’t all that thrilled, but said I’d give the series another chance and I’m glad I did. This book was so much better than the last one and I thoroughly enjoyed the whodunit, red herrings, and a petite protagonist with her kitty. I’ll be back for more in this series.

  • I liked this book & enjoy the series.

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of A DEADLY DISCOVERY (Book 4 of the Allie Cobb Mysteries) by J.C. Kenney in exchange for an honest review. After being repeatedly injured in her quests to solve murders, literary agent Allie Cobb is suffering panic attacks and has to go to counseling. Thus, when law enforcement unearths a long-dead murder victim in a local park, Allie resolves to let the police handle the matter. All of that changes when the victim’s mother personally approaches Allie and desperately begs for her assistance. Allie must delve into the lives, habits, and social expectations of the local high school students in the 1980’s in order to reconstruct the victim’s life. As Allie eliminates suspects and as her list narrows, Allie has to combat the terror caused by past clashes with killers in order to proceed. Can Allie find this perpetrator without putting herself in a perilous pickle? I liked this book and enjoy the series. I recommend the series to fans of cozy mysteries featuring murder, small towns, small businesses, family, book agencies, and opinionated pets. #ADeadlyDiscovery #NetGalley

  • nope

    I have read all of the books in this series. I don't recall having found Allie to be so annoying before. I couldn't stand her by the end of the book. I felt like she could do no wrong. She was superwoman; perfect in every way. I felt as if I was being preached at throughout the book about the best way to live life and behave. And the cliches! so many! There were references to TV, movies, books and the author felt the need to explain every reference. Which became so tedious after awhile. The mystery seemed a backseat to showcasing how great this character was.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Cracking Instalment

    Allie Cobb is a literary agent running her family's agency in Rushing Creek, Southern Indiana, started by her father. Despite vowing that she will no longer get involved in murder investigations, she agrees to help when a woman's body, Valerie Briggs, is found in a woodland park. Valerie's mother, Connie begs for Allie's assistance so she relents when she learns that Valerie vanished some twenty years earlier. My first read in this delightful series, A Deadly Discovery was charming and intriguing. As Allie assists with the town's 9/11 memorial event, she enlists her friends and boyfriend, Brent to help gather information from years ago and the victim's reticent high school friends. She is a good investigator and whilst rooting out and gathering clues she ruffles a few feathers and rattles the closet handles of some of the town's residents. In a tale packed to the rafters with secrets and betrayals, the mystery element held my interest and kept me keen to continue reading. J. C. Kenney's novel also highlighted current issues, in particular, mental health. I enjoyed deciphering the clues alongside Allie as well as the great relationships she had with Calypso Bosley (Allie's assistant), Star and Jeanette. Of course, Allie's cat Ursula deserves a mention, too. This fourth book in the Allie Cobb Mystery series is fabulous, fast-paced, and fun. I'll be reading the other books as well as the next book in this compelling series and here's hoping I enjoy them as much as A Deadly Discovery! I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Beyond the Page Publishing via NetGalley, and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
