FTC Compliance Statement: I received a free, time-limited, electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley.com in exchange for my honest review, which is provided below. I have not been otherwise compensated for this review in any way and my opinion is my own.
Last year around this time, I discovered the wonderful Mrs. Kaplan through NetGalley, and was thoroughly charmed by her. At the time, I fervently hoped that a series was afoot. So imagine how overjoyed I was to receive an email telling me a second book featuring my new favorite mystery-solving duo was available for requesting on NetGalley. Hooray!! I immediately sent in my request.
This sequel didn't disappoint. It's another thoroughly charming mystery featuring Mrs. Kaplan, and her Watson, Mrs. Berkowitz, who narrates the stories in an uncomplicated but colorful way. The story itself is deceptively simple, but there is actually a lot of things going on, which makes the story richer. The mystery kept me guessing until the end too.
This book arrives just in time for holiday gift-giving, and along with the previous one too, of course, would be wonderful gift for someone who likes cozy mysteries. Preferably enjoyed with a nice cup of tea and some mandelbrot. Highly recommended!
What a great addition to my Fall reading. I really hope to see a third book at this time next year too.
