    Loved it

    Doreen Montgomery had been married to a very wealthy man and when she divorced him for his infidelity she was unprepared for the life as a single women. She moved into a house gifted to her by her grandmother along with Thaddeus the parrot, Goliath the cat and Mugs the dog. Doreen had no skills apart from her love of gardening, she couldn't even cook........enter Corporal Mack Moreau of the Kelowna police department who took it upon himself to teach her. Quite soon Doreen began to build up a reputation as an amateur sleuth much to the amusement and sometimes irritation of Mack and the police department, she did however manage to uncover clues that helped to solve quite a few cold cases. When Doreen came across a pair of pink silk handcuffs in her grumpy neighbours garden no one could have imagined that it would lead to the uncovering of murder, prostitution, transgender and embezzlement. This is the eighth book in the Lovely Lethal Garden series and although they are all standalone I would suggest that you read them in order to get the most enjoyment. They are all quite tongue in cheek with serious undertones, Doreen is a bit dippy and trundles along in her own sweet way despite treading on toes (especially Mack's) along the way. The menagerie are quite amusing and follow Doreen everywhere earning her a few not very complimentary nicknames. There is a very slow burning romance between Doreen and Mack which is very sweet. There is no hot sex or hard action, this is a lovely gentle book despite covering serious issues and I really enjoyed it.

    An Old Life for a New Life

    Doreen has been able to find several missing persons since her arrival in Kelowna. This one, however, is unlike any of the others. So much is going on here. Her cranky neighbor, Richard, has agreed to let Doreen do some yardwork for him in exchange for the large quantity of dirt she had "borrowed" during the Guns in the Gardenias case. Her intent was to show appreciation when she asked whether she could look to see the reason why one of his hydrangea bushes looked a little small. Imagine her and Richard’s surprise when her eye caught sight of something in the nearby blooming heather. You guessed it, handcuffs! BUT, these were not ordinary handcuffs…more the recreational type, pink satin similar to the ones sex workers use, but covered with the filth that can only come from years in the dirt. A prostitute in Richard’s yard? Are the handcuffs the key to unlocking another one or two old open cases? The title of this review is another key. Armed with the box of files she inherited from Nan’s old journalist friend, Doreen has a plethora of resources to support her extracurricular volunteer work. And now, so do you.

    Doreen is at it again.

    The cozy books only get better. Not only are the mysteries are all cold cases, but they are also very different. Mack is always after Doreen to stay out of police business and naturally, she falls right into each and every one by accident. Each one is generally about a social issue that plagues all countries and does need addressing. Dale does it masterfully and with empathy. This one I got to see my last name as a district and a street. It was cool. Not that I think it was intentional but I loved it. Thanks, Ms. Dale. If you want an easy read with some drama and murder mixed in, you cannot go wrong with one of Dale's Cozy Mystery Books.
