Death of a Dapper Snowman (Stormy Day Cozy Murder Mystery #1) 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 69 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
160 pages, free. First in a series. A clean, cozy mystery. The second book costs $3.99. The third has not been published yet. The efiting is okay except the s, es, er, ed and ing have been left off a lot of words. The murder is nondescriptive. Some extremely mild violence. Some flirting. A few events are rather silly, such as renting out half her duplex and then not wanting to stay there because she does not want her tenate to know who she is. This is fun, humorous, entertaining read. Ages 16 and up. AD

This cozy mystery will leave you with a smile.  Stormy Day is back in town.  She’s left her ex fiancé and her high powered job to start over where she grew up.  When she stumbles upon a corpse buried in a snowman things get interesting real fast.  As the daughter of a cop Stormy can’t help but be interested in the investigation.  This is an action packed fun mystery that will keep you guessing, laughing and turning the page. Sign me up for the next one!

This is an okay mystery. It surely won't tax your brain much, and it won't violate many people's moral sensibilities relating to language, sex, gore, violence, or whatever. It is described as having "lots of turns and twists," which seemed to me more like crazed daydreams (on the part of the main character) with no grounding in reality than actual plot twists. In any "normal" plot a true twist is to have someone genuinely seem guilty or innocent and then have events occur to reverse that. In this book the so-called twists consist of countless times when the main character's thoughts go off a cliff and cause her to have insane suspicions about someone who in no way appears to be The Villain.

This is a pleasant, cozy mystery with a bit of humor and a quirky set of characters. It is an easy read but has a few editing problems. I enjoyed this and will read the sequels.

I burst out laughing so often while reading the book, that I now want to move to Miaty Falls just to hang with Jeffrey...and the wicked clever Stormy of course. Great, great amusing story that gets better and beter by the page.

I enjoyed this cute, cozy and funny mystery. The characters are fun to get to know - especially Jeffery Blue! The ending is a bit goofy, but still fun to read. This is a nice and clean story that is quite enjoyable to read. ***esk 01/2017***

Funny as hell. The main character, Stormy Day, makes jokes about everything, until she realizes it might be inappropriate. You don't find out who the killer is until the end of the book. Read it. It's an easy-going, short book.

This is a first in a series about Stormy Day and I really enjoyed it! The story does start out a little slow, but it does pick up. Stormy has a quick wit and I laughed out loud a few times at her humor. There are enough suspects that you are not sure whodunit until the end. I was a bit confused about Stormy and Tony, there is not enough information there to understand what is going on. I will be reading the next on in this series!

A quick read and a not too taxing mystery. This book was a decent little free read. I sometimes questioned Stormy’s thought process on things but overall she wasn’t too boneheaded. Every time she went to her father’s house instead of her own I couldn’t help thinking that her home situation would be a lot less awkward! I did find the early references to her “stormy” personality or her “storming off” a little silly. Most of the humor fell flat for me but nice try! I liked the story enough that I will probably read the next one. Spoiler-ish: It would have been nice if after all her “investigating” she actually discovered something pertinent to the murder. I felt like she was super accusatory to several innocent people and then boom, the killer makes themselves known out of nowhere. The killer’s only real motive appears to be that they are “crazy”.

I really enjoyed the story, and found it hard to put the book down to get my other projects done. Other than rhe usual grammatical and spelling errors found in one of these books, it was okay. Looking forward to reading more written by this author.

I was under the assumption that this was a young adult/teenage book, but it wasn't. It was an interesting read none the less.
