Review: Home Is Where the Body Is (The Wannabe Sleuth #1) by Jody Holford


The coastal Oregon town of Rainbow Falls might be sleepy, but it’s definitely not innocent...

When graphic designer and true crime fan Annie Abbott agrees to house sit her parents’ home for a year, she’s convinced that even though the small town has ten coffee shops, nothing exciting will happen. But that’s before a seemingly feral cat gives birth in her garage, prompting a call to the very handsome, very single town vet. It’s a dream meet-cute, but just as their romance blooms, Annie discovers the bloody body of her grumpy neighbor. And despite the fact that she passes out at the sight of blood, the police suspect her.

To clear her name, Annie will need to put her years of watching police procedurals and reading mysteries to good use. She’ll also need to rely on her new friends who have welcomed her to Rainbow Falls, but is one of them the killer?
My Review: 
A great start to a new murder mystery series.
Graphic designer, Annie Abbott, was excited about the coming year.  She would be house sitting for her parents while they sailed around the world.  Without warning, Annie suddenly finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation where she is the prime suspect.  Since Annie has a murder mystery blog and online murder club, she has a little knowledge about solving crimes.  Annie’s knowledge is put to the test when she, along with her new friends, try to solve the murder.  
This was such a fun book.  I loved Annie’s go-getter attitude when it came to finding the killer.  I liked the bit of romance in the story as well.  And of course, the part with the cat and kittens was fun to read too.
