I just finished reading book 5 in the Amelia Moore Detective series. It’s a nice cozy mystery with Amelia and Rick Bonito striking out to find a high powered attorney’s missing love of two decades before Julie marries the gubernatorial candidate that she’s not quite sure about yet. Amelia really gets into this case as she reads old love letters from Julie’s sweetheart back when they were in college. You can’t help wondering what happened to him. Is he alive? Did he get caught up in something dangerous? Is he dead? As Amelia and Rick search for him by interviewing people from his past in Arizona and Utah (Zion National Park), they pick up tails that present a mysterious threat. Are they the mafia? Are they a disgruntled ex-client or someone an ex-client had them follow years ago? Amelia’s made many enemies of the bad guys over the years.
I love the cover on this book. Zion’s one of my favorite places. I’ve read a few other books in this series and Amelia and Rick have a definite attraction, but it gets more serious in this book. That made me happy. So if you’re lost between books, pick this up and give it a try. Linda Clarke writes sweet, cozy romance with a twist of mystery in them to keep you guessing. Hopefully, you’re enjoying summer! Happy reading.
