Tuesday’s Tale

A String of Murders,  (Christian Cozy Mystery) (A Dressed for Death Mystery Book 2) by Darlene Franklin picks up approximately six months after Gunfight at Grace Gulch (Christian Cozy Mystery) (A Dressed For Death Mystery Book 1).

Cici Wilde, owner of Cici’ s Vintage Clothing in Dry Gulch, Oklahoma, had just returned home from a long day at work when she received a disconcerting call. Audie Howe, her fiancé, had stopped by her store when he saw a light coming from the back of the store. Thinking there was something odd happening, he went inside, and found a body.

Cici is distraught-another murder in her little town. As days go by, it appears the victim was lured to her store.

A series of pithy e-mails seems to be targeting everyone in Grace Gulch. When they first started, the moniker chosen, Jerry Burton, was from an Agatha Christie novel; but then a second series, from Elsie Holland, appeared. Elsie Holland was from Agatha Christie novels, too. Determined to track down the murderer and the real owner sending the e-mails, Cici goes to work.

A String of Murders is another intriguing tale by Darlene Franklin. As an author, Darlene Franklin weaves a story so well into the lives of her characters that you can’t help but fall in love with them, quirks and all. She intertwines mystery and history together into a fascinating tale.

The sequel in A Dressed for Death Mystery Series is an equally hard book to put down.

I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. (Thank you, Darlene Franklin, for a compelling story!)
