Booklist Reviews 2018 June #1

The Catskills in the 1930s were rife with gang-related crime, including a supposed Mob murder in Sullivan County's Lenape Hollow. This hit—or maybe it was a copycat murder?—is the subject of a manuscript that Tiffany Scott brings to Mikki Lincoln for editing. Mikki, a recently widowed and newly retired English teacher, has returned to live in Lenape Holow, her hometown, and has just set up shop as a freelance copy editor and book developer. Mikki takes Scott's job, but three days later is answering questions from the police about why her business card was found on Scott's body. Although she hadn't yet read the whole manuscript, Mikki recognizes that the way Scott was killed resembles the supposedly historic murder in the manuscript and starts asking questions. Maybe too many questions, for in talking with high-school friends, their children, and newcomers to the small town, Mikki finds that old wounds can still hurt. This first in a new series is nicely done, with good characterizations, not overly one-dimensional, as in many cozies. And, yes, the Oxford comma is a clue. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 April #5

Freelance editor Mikki Lincoln, the heroine of this entertaining series launch from Dunnett (X Marks the Scot), is coping with renovations to her childhood home in Lenape Hollow, N.Y., when aspiring writer Tiffany Scott asks for help revising her fiction manuscript. Despite promising early chapters, Mikki finds the tale of violent gangsters far-fetched and full of clichés. After Tiffany drowns, Mikki begins to wonder whether the book's characters have real-life counterparts—such as Tiffany's husband, Greg Onslow, an entrepreneur who has a controversial theme-park proposal; his associate, Alan Van Heusen, who may have secrets in his past; and Onslow's creepy security guard, Paul Klein, who has been following her. Ronnie North, Tiffany's grandmother and Mikki's supercilious former classmate, also has a motive: the shares of stock Tiffany left her. As Mikki's suspicions grow, a burglary at her house suggests that she may be asking too many uncomfortable questions. Appealing supporting characters include Mikki's loyal and resourceful friend, Darlene Uberman, and the ever-gossipy patrons of the local café. Cozy fans will be pleased. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (June)
