Book Review-Picture Perfect Murder (A Ryli Sinclair Mystery Book 1)-Jenna St James

Saturday, March 3, 2018


Aunt Shirley stole the show for me in this rambling mad cap cozy mystery! She is definitely a pip!! Of course the main character's were trying to solve a murder and get those maddeningly ignorant men in their lives to at least notice them. But all those guys were interested in doing was keeping the girls safe-----hum---Aunt Shirley kept them going!!

So, did they catch the murderer (without the help of the guys)--did the guys come up to snuff? And how does Ryli's Mom figure into all of this. Read this hilarious clean cozy to find out!!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

Hold on to your seats as hilarious and talented Cozy Mystery Author, Jenna St. James, takes you on the ride of your life! You’ll laugh, you’ll cringe, you may even scream during this rollicking romp through the town of Granville. This down to earth non-traditional Cozy is an absolute delight that pushes the boundaries of the genre in some daring ways that make it all the more enjoyable.

Ryli Sinclair had no idea that moonlighting as a Forensic Photographer for the Granville Police Department would put her directly in the path of a crazed killer. Determined to identify the murderer before she becomes the next victim, Ryli enlists the help of her best friend, Paige, and her elderly great-aunt, Shirley, a former private investigator. From the driver’s seat of Aunt Shirley’s coveted ’65 Falcon, Ryli and the girls are hot on the trail of the murderer…and hilarity ensues, as the ridiculously handsome chief of police, Garrett Kimble, throws stumbling blocks in their path at every turn.

Sounds like something I would enjoy reading, just throw in the 17 or 1800's. I'd like to read the funny things that happen when the chief tries stopping them from finding the killer. I wonder what he has to hide?

I got immediately disinterested after reading the words "maddeningly ignorant men."

If that was written about women, we'd be complaining about misogyny and I don't care for it in reverse.
