Maid of Murder: 12/31/10
At the start of the year I was asked to review Maid of Murder by Amanda Flower. I agreed to the review because a college librarian as amateur sleuth sounded interesting. Plus she has a brother who is a long time mathematics graduate student, a character I can also relate too.
India Hayes, academic librarian and reluctant bridesmaid must solve the mystery of who killed her childhood friend at the wedding.
I really expected to like this book but I found the pacing too slow. A cosy mystery is one part banter, one part red herring and one part crumb trail of clues. Maid of Murder was too heavy on the banter and family drama. The personal issues drowned out the mystery parts of the book.
