    Nickeled and Dimed to Death is the second book in the A Devereau

    Nickeled and Dimed to Death is the second book in the A Devereaux's Dime Store Mystery series.

    Elise Whitmore comes in the Five and Dime with some antique chocolate molds that Dev knows would be a great addition for her Easter gift baskets. She finds the money needed to purchase them, soon she hears that may actually belong to Elise's soon to be ex. Then a couple days later panic does set in as Dev learns that Elise has been found dead. She fears that someone may find out that she might have possible stolen items.

    Those fears come front and center when she learns that Elise has been found shot in the head. Soon she learns that her long time friend Boone has been taken in for questioning for the murder. Dev contacts her other childhood friend, Poppy owner of Gossip Central, a local watering hole and a great source of information.

    Add to this Dev has also been stood up by Jake, a U. S. Marshall and someone she was hoping to get to know better. Then with everything so much in turmoil, her ex boyfriend Noah, the one that dumped her when her father got sent to jail, calls and asks her to go to benefit dance. He offers to introduce her to a friend of his that is interested in purchasing a number of her gift baskets. Well, it is business, so what's the harm? Well......

    Elise's husband has been having an affair, so maybe his mistress is the one. But then the husband, but maybe he want her out of the picture completely and Elise has been selling off his many collectibles. Or maybe someone else has a grudge against Elise.

    Looking forward to the next to see what Dev's next adventure will be and how she is doing in the romance department.

    Murder with a Touch of Humor

    The second in a new series by my favorite author. Another murder in a small town, well-plotted with a believable ending ... punctuated by l touches of humor and the realities of small town life.

    Let's knock out the negative first, I don't see Noah and Dev tog

    Let's knock out the negative first, I don't see Noah and Dev together, friends yes, but to me they don't have the sizzle. Not thrilled with the diagnosis of the mayor with low blood pressure, I have low blood pressure but if mine was as low as his I would be hospitalized (as a matter of fact I was). I'm also not a big fan of Poppy, her friend is arrested and she acts like a brat, she'll make a scene at the police station to embarrass her father? Really, are you going to hold your breath next? Any way that being said I love Dev and her grandma. Noah is much more likeable in this book, he is trying to get back in Dev's, and friends good graces, and is quite good at finding out info. He's a likeable guy, but I just see him as a friend. The mystery was excellent with a lot of suspects, and a plot with so many twists, plus a surprise one that kept me guessing. I will definitely move on to the next in the series.
