Some Beauty Secrets Are Dangerous Than Others When Beauty Box Beautician Tammy Smith Is Discovered With A Pair Of Hair Shears In Her Back, There Are Suspects And Secrets Aplenty In Her Small Southern TownOctogenarian Myrtle Clover, Bored By Bingo And Bridge, Is Intrigued By The Crimeand Her Neighbors Secrets But Discovering, And Blabbing, Secrets Got Tammy Killed And Myrtle Soon Learns Her Sleuthing Isn T Just Dangerousit S Deadly A fun cozy mystery though I like her quilting series better. I really adore this series Myrtle makes everything light and fun She is great to read when I have heavy books going on because I know that I will laugh and laugh and laugh These are pretty easy mysteries as far as solving goes I knew pretty early on who the killer was and was pretty sure of the why , but it doesn t detract from the story or the hilarity of Myrtle and Miles and their sleuthing albeit, reluctantly on Miles part So much fun A great story spoilt by poor formatting.I enjoyed this undemanding, easy to read cosy very much Great characters and a good page turner So it isn t great literature and not always realistic, but it doesn t set out to be so to criticise on those grounds indicates readers didn t bother to read the blub and opening first What irritated me was the formatting A line space between every paragraph I might of coped with, but, because of this, there were no obvious scene breaks Having to go to the very end of long chapters when reading in bed and your eyelids are dropping and concentration waning really difficult And just to be picky, there were far too many missing spaces between words and sentences Not good for a so called professionally copy edited novel. Myrtle Clover is a scream, this book is masterly written and cleverly plotted I read it in one day, could not put it down It s good to read an entertaining mystery with witty banter. I feel kind of bad rating this book the same as the last book I read, Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan, since Sweet Tooth was obviously a much well written book However, my policy is to rate based on the genre and purpose of any given book, so I m not actually saying that the two are comparable.This book is a cozy mystery and a very easy read I enjoyed the story line beauty salon owner in a small town is stabbed in the back Cue the bored old woman protagonist , Myrtle, whose son is the police chief and yet who feels compelled to investigate with her slightly younger sidekick neighbor Miles I found Myrtle to be a tad annoying She has a toddler grandson, for example, but doesn t really want to spend any time with him she d rather be off doing something exciting This rubbed me the wrong way I know the author was trying to make her a spunky old gal, but she came across as unlikable to me.The revelation of whodunit was a bit meh No real shocker there And the deductions that Myrtle made to get there weren t too logical at all Still, it was a fine, untaxing way to spend a couple of hours. Fun and silly romp. This is the first reading this author and third in the series The main character is Myrtle, the mother of Red, the chief of police The local hairdresser has taken to drinking is claims she has the goods on everyone and maybe it s time to tell on them That night she is murdered and Myrtle the 70 some years young Miss Marple sets out to crack the case I loved Myrtle I am looking forward to reading of her adventures. Prescindible novela que me ha recordado demasiado a Miss Marple. Myrtle is clever, cunning, wise and sometimes cantankerousI was searching for a new series to enjoy when I read a sample of the first Myrtle Clover mystery.I have become a devoted fan Myrtle is a senior citizen with a sharp mind, a delightful sense of humor and a desire to solve murders Her son Red, the local sheriff, often dismisses Myrtle s theories much to his own chagrin.
