But in between breaths, I got caught up in Dressed to Kill by Lynn Cahoon. This is actually the fourth book in A Tourist Trap Mystery, but this is the first one I've read. This felt like it could be a standalone since it wasn't hard to get to know the characters.
If there's one word to describe Dressed to Kill, it's that it's cozy. It was a book that made me curl up in the sofa and, even though there's a murder to solve, I liked the vibe of the town. Jill was a person I could have been friends with in real life! The book was so easy to read, it made me pause in between my reading of Les Miserables (our book club's choice for the month).
There were clues dropped along the way, but I was only able to solve it right before the revelation of the culprit. I feel like some sub-plot twists could be better discussed, or that the culprit's reasoning was better explained, but all in all, it was a satisfying ending. It didn't feel like the culprit came out of nowhere.
If you're looking for a breezy and cozy mystery, Dressed to Kill is a good choice. :)
