Killalot (An Ivy Meadows Mystery Book 6)
By: Cindy Brown
Rating: 5 of 5
This is one of my favorite cozy mystery series. It is funny and has great plot lines which parody well known places, plays or movies. In this book, the parody is of Camelot. I won’t give away the parody line as it is a surprise.
Ivy Meadows is an actress who, under her real name Olive Zweigart, is a private detective in training (under her uncle who admits he is the best PI in the state of Arizona.)
Ivy shimmies and jingles her way through a Renaissance fair as a mute belly dancer. Why mute? Because her “Cockney” accent grates on everyones nerves. She is there to investigate a murder on behalf of the fair.
While she is investigating and finding clues, she takes a in-depth search of her own issues. While previous books have touched on these, in this book, she dives in deep. Her fears surface in a variety of ways and can make or break her relationships. Ivy has to face these fears to be able to move forward and not stay stagnant as she has for well more than a decade.
I enjoyed this book as I have all the books in this series. After this book, I feel as if I understand and know Ivy much better than before. I recommend reading the series as so much is built upon what has happened in the past.
I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Edelweiss.
