Book Review-Cat Killed A Rat (A Ponderosa Pines Cozy Mystery Book 1) -ReGina Welling and Erin Lynn

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Ponderosa Pines used to be a commune back in the day. It eventually became a little town but kept that commune feeling, and form of government. Of course as in any small town you have your gossips and those who are gossiped about. This town is no different.

Cloe LaRue writes a gossip column for the local paper--Her closest friend EV is the daughter of one of the founders of the town and really seems to be up on all the gossip herself! Then the unthinkable happens--one of the townspeople is found dead in the church. Was it an accident or did someone try to do him in? Then his brother is found dead--bashed in the back of the head.

A lot of people start pointing the blame at EV. It is up to Cloe and EV and the sherriff and his deputy to get to the bottom of all this. So what happened--accident or murder for the first person--the second was definitely murder--but who in this small town did it and why?

This mother daughter team of authors have brought to life small town living with all its good and bad!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Nothing bad ever happens in Ponderosa Pines

At least, that’s what anonymous gossip columnist Chloe LaRue and her best friend, town matriarch EV Torrence thought—until a resident of their sleepy little village turns up dead. When EV becomes suspect #1, even Chloe can’t stop the rumor mill from churning.

Against Detective Nate Harper and Deputy Dalton Burnsoll’s orders, Chloe and EV mount their own investigation—but what they uncover might just rock the community to its very core. Could one of their own beloved citizens really be a killer?

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Hi all, my name is Erin Lynn and I’m a writer from No-Place-You’ve-Ever-Heard-Of, Maine.

Apparently the ability to express myself most articulately via the written word is a hereditary trait–My mom is ReGina Welling, author of the Psychic Seasons series of cozy romantic mystery novels.

After living in Syracuse, NY for 8 years, I recently returned to the middle of nowhere with the intention of hibernating, writing lots of books and turning a neglected house into a beautiful home.

My life is made complete by my two hilarious sons, ages 8 and 10, my amazing boyfriend and an ever-expanding collection of pets!

Authors Website

ReGina Welling prefers not to talk about herself in the third person so...

I live in Maine with my husband, a crazy cat named Cricket, and a feisty Jack Russell terrier named Schnickelfritz. I write full time and also create mixed media artwork when I get the chance.

When I was three, my mom brought home a new book and when she went to read it to me, I read it to her instead. That was when she realized I'd learned to read. Since then I couldn't even estimate the number of books I've read. It's a lot!

I love talking to other readers so please visit me in any one of these various places and don't forget to let me know you stopped by!

Although this is a murder mystery it sounds intriguing to me. I'd love to live in a small town with history or so I think. I have a suspicion that someone is getting to close to someone else hidden secrets. We'll find out soon enough.
