Dead to Begin With by Vivian Conroy is a new addition to the cozy mystery family. In this first in a series, Vicky is coming home after years in England. Her idea to open a British theme gift shop intrigues some local residents and leaves others smirking behind her back. When a decades old cold case resurfaces, Vicky can't help but look for clues, especially since she has a crush one of the suspects. This story was well written and the characters are quite interesting. I look forward to reading more in this series. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

Description From the Publsiher: Love Agatha Raisin? Looking for a new fun cosy crime series? Then spend some time at the coast with Vicky Simmons amateur sleuth! Coming home can be murder. Vicky Simmons is looking for the simple life. She’s ready to trade in London for a slower pace by opening a British Country Gift Shop in her old hometown on the coast of Maine. Little does she know a few old faces are back in Glen Cove, including unrequited teenage crush Michael Danning—having taken over the local Gazette and looking better than ever. All is looking rosy until Vicky finds herself face-to-face with a dead body and Michael is the prime suspect. When the sheriff links the motive for murder to the unsolved disappearance of a teenage girl twenty years ago, Vicky must turn amateur sleuth. She’ll stop at nothing to save Michael…and unmask the real killer! The first book in the new Country Gift Shop Cozy Mystery series, look out for book 2: GRAND PRIZE: MURDER! coming soon! My Review of "Dead to Begin With": Returning home after years away is hard to do, but that's what Vicki Simmons has done. Now an old murder has resurfaced add in a new one and Vicki and her friends set out to find out who is killing off the residents of their quaint small town of Glen Cove. The characters are individuals that are believable. The writing brings Glen Cove to life in vivid detail for the reader to envision in their minds. A wonderful new series with a bright future for many more books to come. My rating for "Dead to Begin With" is 4.75 out of 5 Stars.
