    Let me start of by saying that I love cozy mysteries. You know that the crime will be solved and there will be a happy ending. 
    I also like puns.
    Amber's Mysterious Death by C.L. Exline has both.
    Sheryl Locke Holmes (say it out loud) and Dot Watson run an antique store. They are sorority sisters from way back and were once part of a trio. The third person, Amber, has died. Of course they must investigate.
    Exline takes us along on those adventures and even throws in a hunky cop for Sheryl to fall in love with. Right from the beginning you are swept away with these two and their quest to find out what happened to their friend.  
    This was an enjoyable read for me and will be for anyone who likes madcap cozy mysteries

    I greatly enjoyed Amber's Mysterious Death, a vivid and compell

    I greatly enjoyed Amber's Mysterious Death, a vivid and compelling story, with a clever designed mystery that kept me so engrossed in it that it was impossible to put it down at all.


    The story flows well from the very beginning and it grabbed me from page one. I liked the author's clever naming the characters: Sheryl Locke Holmes. And of course who can be close to this character? None other than the traditional friend and partner, Watson; in our story, Dot, the technological wizard. Unlike Conan Doyle's characters who are men, Cassie's main leads are women. I enjoyed it as I am an inveterate feminist.

    The two friends are as opposite as day and night. They aren't detectives proper, though Sheryl worked for a while, until her parents died in an accident, at the Millstone Police Department. They are owners of an antique shop, Homes by Holmes and Watson. Their friendship runs back in the past when they were room mates at the University and where they shared a room with another girl Amanda.

    While having a look over some antiques to be auctioned from a mansion, Sheryl spots an old acquaintance that seems to be on top of her suspects list, in the case of death of their friend Amanda. Can't tell you more without revealing the plot and it wouldn't be fair. The story is spiced with the right amount of romance - Dot and Charlie, Sheryl and Jake - and sprinkled with enough humor to make it even more interesting.

    A highly entertaining story. Prepare for an unexpected twist at the end of it.
    This review is based on a digital copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest opinion.

    Thumbs up for Amber's Mysterious Death. It's a smooth read wit

    Thumbs up for Amber's Mysterious Death.


    It's a smooth read with a fast opening and main character, Holmes and Watson, that come across as genuine, but ranging from human to, at times, a bit super-human. However, a detective named Holmes should be considered above average. Descriptive material was not excessive, good humor, and dthe plot was tightly woven and believable. An excellent sstory for an afternoon of entertainment.
