BOOK REVIEW - Blessed Is the Busybody, by Emilie Richards

I was hooked into this delightfully tangled “cozy mystery” from the first sentence on. Teddy, the youngest daughter of the minister and his wife, is going to bury the cat again. Hooked! From there Emilie Richards nailed all the mystery writing prerequisites of a centered plot coupled with compelling characters, and small town setting that is all so relatable. I like that the murders aren’t gruesome detailed descriptions of gore. That the suspense is bundled up in levity. I really, really enjoyed this book. I was lucky enough to be given a copy of the first in the series MINISTRY IS MURDER and am relishing the thought of four more books to go.

In Emilie Richards’ website bio, interestingly enough, I found that she is the wife of a retired minister, although that little coincidence (she says) doesn’t influence her writer’s creative imagination or brilliant cozy mystery works. However she does it I vote yes! and she gets five stars and a fan for life from me.
