Play That Funky Music White Koi by Dakota Cassidy

Twists, turns, and suspects aplenty!

"My tiny town of Fig Harbor's just recovering from our last tango with murder, only to be faced with yet another—and this time, it sure looks an awful lot like a vampire's on the loose in the Pacific Northwest.

Vampires are just Twilight fiction, right?

I'm not so sure after a murder victim is found in my koi pond right next to my favorite fish, Koi George, (not good!) with bite marks on her neck, and a gothic antique chalice next to her body with what sure looks like blood residue.

By now, everyone knows I can't keep my nose out of a good mystery. But when I literally try to stay out of the fray while our town conspiracy theorist is yelling vampires have invaded our beloved Fig Harbor, I have no choice but to gather up all the garlic I can buy and put my sleuthing shoes back on!”

No way. Vampires aren't real. Period! Or are they?

Find out in Play That Funky Music White Koi Book 2 of A Lemon Layne Mystery from USA Today bestselling cozy mystery author Dakota Cassidy. A Pacific Northwest mystery with amateur sleuth Lemon Layne, the best Sherlock Holmes wannabe west of the Mississippi!

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall: 4 Narration: 4 Story: 4 Lemon has been solving mysteries since childhood, but she’s pretty well tapped out after the last murder. Unfortunately, a bludgeoned body with two puncture marks in the neck and an antique chalice are in her pond, right in Koi George’s space, she’s apparently got no end to the questions. Thus begins yet another murder investigation for poor Lemon, even as she’s trying to stay out of it. But for her, curiosity is her guide, so off she goes to investigate. It doesn’t help that Cappy and his proclamations of conspiracies and vampires (the corpse did have bite marks) just add to her questions. And, of course, she does stumble on a major clue that points to a town official and provides at least some evidence of a vampire cult, she can’t help herself. From the traumatized Koi George and the clever puns with the victim Amy actually ‘sleeping with the fishes” the laughs and humor in this story are plentiful, all while presenting a series of red herrings and clues that point to several suspects, all while the actual culprit does manage to divert attention from their own involvement. With secondary characters that provide a real sense of community and Lemon’s place in it, the quirkiness of small town life and the sense that the group of friends and townspeople are truly invested in solving these murders are clear. Side scenes with Lemon and her friend Coco, the conspiracies that Cappy sees in every action, and the fact that despite wanting to stay out of the investigation, people can’t help themselves when it comes to sharing with her. Hollie Jackson takes on the role of narrator for this series, and manages (I don’t know how) to deliver some of the quirkiest and funniest moments of dialogue with flair – moments where smiling are required, you can’t help but hear the smile. Lemon is completely relatable and present in her moments, her own interior voice is distinct and present, even as she is being dragged in. Dialogue with other characters is clear and distinct, easy to recognize who is speaking and their emotions are clearly presented. Another winner in this series, easily read (and enjoyed) without having read (or listened to) the first in the series, and brings a quirky humor and sense of fun to the genre. I received an AudioBook copy of the title from Tantor Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Play That Funky Music White Koi by Dakota Cassidy A cozy mystery. Second in the series but can be read alone. Lemon Layne has been asking questions and solving mysteries back to her childhood days. But this is the second murder in the small town in just a few months and it's causing all kinds of havoc and crazy behavior. The danger is just outside Lemon's door and with investigation, turn out its not the first death surrounding a group of friends. Lemon investigates while her family and friends try to keep her safe and out of trouble, not always successfully. A bit on the light and humorous side but overall much more gripping than the first book. A good mystery. Excerpt: “I told you, I saw it on Thea’s Facebook pa…” I stopped short and gave her a guilty look, waiting for my lecture, because despite what she’d said about not nagging me, she was Coco after all. “As you snooped,” she said on a laugh, poking my arm. “I told you, I’m not going to nag you anymore. I just want you to be careful, and while you’re at it, admit you can’t resist getting involved.” I let out what felt like the longest-held breath in the history of holding one’s breath and threw my hands up in the air in defeat. “Okay, so I was snooping, and I can’t help but snoop because it’s in my blood and I mostly suck at it, as proven in the case of Myron’s murder. But it’s a compulsion I’m unable to control. I fought it all day long and it’s killing me. Like, literally, it’s all I can do not to bury myself in Facebook pages. I mean, Cappie and I found a dead woman in my koi pond, Coco. Almost right on top of Koi George. How am I just supposed to ignore that?” Wow, that felt good to say out loud."

Lemon Layne is back! You would have thought that her adventures in Prawn of the Dead would have put her off sleuthing but when a body is found in her koi pond she just has to find out what happened. There is a crazy mix of suspects and the usual bunch of crazies at Lemon’s back that guarantee this to be a fun mix of murder and mayhem. If you are looking for a clean, fun, cozy mystery I heartily recommend Lemon Layne.

The town of Fig Harbour has experienced another murder and Lemon Layne is once again caught in the cross-hairs. She tells everyone she is going to stay out of it but ends up drawn in because she cannot walk away from a good mystery. This the second book in the series and is just as fun of a read as the first book. We get learn a bit more about Lemon's past and understand why she is so into the sleuthing. She is joined by her best friend Coco, eccentric mom May, her spider monkey Jessica Fletcher, and her childhood friend Justice as she solves yet another mystery. I highly recommend this series to everyone!
