Marvey was a smart, relatable, and likable sleuth and I loved her family and newly chosen 'family', her friends. The town setting of Peach Coast was sweet and truly made me want to visit, especially for the peach cobbler.
Oliva Matthew's writing is so rich and enjoyable, I would get lost in a scene and felt immersed in Marvey's southern world. As a west coast native, I could relate to how it felt to adjust to southern ways and mannerisms. Those moments weren't meant to be funny, but they put a smile on my face.
Overall, the mystery was well-paced and although I had my suspicions about the killer, the red herrings gave me enough pause to keep me turning the pages.
I look forward to more peach cobbler filled adventures with Marvey.
But the author introduced too many characters at once. I had to keep going back to figure out who was who.
My other big complaint was the situation with the heroine's cat. Marvey is a librarian. She's forever researching stuff in the story. But she never looked into the problem with her beloved cat? I was also kind of surprised she didn't already know the poor kit's problem. Took away from her characterization.
Yet I do recommend the novel as it gives a lovely (and quirky) look into small town Southern living from the viewpoint of a lady from Brooklyn. Having moved from New York City to a town in Florida, I appreciated the shock factor. I look forward to another adventure (and maybe romance?) of Marvey.
The mystery is a good one and the victim turns out to be one of the best characters in the book, I like that our amateur sleuths are more into mental activities than risky physical behaviors. This is a book with smarts and charm, I will definitely look for more from this author!
