Review: A Bittersweet Murder (Hart of Texas Murder Mysteries #1) by Kaz Delaney

Everyone knows everyone in small town Airlie Falls, so where could the killer be hiding?

For one brief hour on a sunny Texas morning, amateur baker Rosie Hart glimpses the life she’s always dreamed about—thanks to a surprise inheritance from the late Miss Alice. But her benefactor is barely cold in the ground when Rosie is accused of her murder.

As the only stranger in the tight-knit Airlie Falls community, and the only person with an obvious motive, all eyes turn to Rosie. Especially when more bodies begin to pile up and mysterious letters from the grave start circulating faster than Rosie can pull a tray of cherry nut clusters out of the oven.

When Rosie begins to suspect the murders have links to a sixty-year-old suspicious death on the very property she’s just inherited, town locals become uneasy. But how can Rosie prove the two are related—and prove her innocence—before the killer strikes again?


My Review:

A great who-done-it. 

Alice Auchinschloss’s caregiver, Rosie, is about to test out her sleuthing skills when Miss Alice is murdered and Rosie becomes the prime suspect.  Rosie gets the help of her new friend, Jonah, his parents and a group of quirky elderly women living at a retirement home, to help her solve the mysteries in the small town of Airlie Falls, Texas, before someone else is murdered of injured.  

This is the first book I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it.  I had a hard time putting it down.  The killer turned out to be someone I never expected.  I can’t wait to see what Rosie is up to in the next book.
