The Cantaloupe Thief

The Cantaloupe Thief
A Branigan Powers Mystery
Deb Richardson-Moore
Branigan is a reporter for a small town paper. Her boss has decided to write a follow up story on the anniversary of a ten year old murder. The murder is now considered a cold case and is the only unsolved murder in the small Georgia town. Branigan hopes that she can shed some light on what might have happened that day ten years ago when a prominent lady was brutally murdered in her home. But now the unsolved murders are starting to add up and Branigan is getting spooked.

This was an excellent book. The plot was a mixture of small town quaintness, whodunit, and a bit of suspense. The author wove the details together to create a gripping story that I couldn't put down. The writing style reminded me a lot of Alexander McCall Smith. The story draws you in, the details keep you puzzled, and the characters make you think. I loved how the story was told partially from the homeless people's point of view, which had a different perspective. The book, while definitely entertaining, also made me think. And that is a plus for me. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book and can't wait to read the next one.

I received this book free of charge from The Suspense Zone in exchange for my honest review.
