    Baited Breath

    Very simplistic in plot for a mystery. This book was a D.I.Y. journal with the mystery aspect an afterthought. I did not find it a "cozy mystery " I found it a boring foray into the amateur's world of house renovating. Oh, someone's Uncle does get murdered and they do find out whose done it after the usual threatening last scene, but this is just background noise as one wades through chapters some of the most boring and inane mind-chatter I've ever had the misfortune to read. I only finished this book at all because I had nothing else to read at the time; not because I cared in the slightest "Who Done It ", no one in the book seemed to.

    Great Beginning to a Series

    Tori Canon has returned to Lotus Bay to attend her grandmother’s funeral. Having recently lost her job as a teacher due to cutbacks Tori convinces her grandfather, Herb, to let her stay and help him clean and fix up around the Canon Compound. Since her grandmother has been ill for a while the house, bait shop, and motel has fallen into disarray. Tori and Herb are walking around taking in what needs to be done and finds a dead body inside one of the rooms of the motel. Tori’s best friend Kathy comes to help Tori not only with the cleaning but with emotional support. After arriving Kathy falls in love with a house that most would say needs to be torn down but she is determined to buy it and turn it into a B&B. The body Tori finds just happened to be the father of one of her childhood friends Anissa Jackson. Anissa what to know who killed her father so Tori and Kathy agree to help. Can the three women find the killer? Will Kathy get her house? Will Tori have to find another job or can she convince her grandfather to let her stay on and run the businesses? This is the first book in the series but my 2nd, I really enjoyed seeing how Tori, Kathy, and Anissa friendship began. I love the relationship between these three women, how they support one another through loss and their dreams even when those dreams seem to be a lost cause to others. I love how Herb is kind of grouchy and doesn’t what to give in to Tori’s wanting to take over the rundown businesses. This shows that he really does care for his granddaughter even though it seems like she hasn’t had that from a lot of people in her family. Mrs. Bartlett is wonderful with the imagery. I can really see how run down the buildings are and how much stuff the grandmother has accumulated over the years. The mystery was kept me guessing who was behind the murder and why since it seems that no one really had a reason to kill Mr. Jackson. I recommend this book to mystery fans. I was given this book in hopes I would give a review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own and in no way been influenced.
