This was a really great cozy mystery! I loved the main characters who run the lodge, and I look forward to reading more about them in future books in this series! The new owner of the lodge, Misty, is a strong MC, and she’s a great little sleuth!
The lodge is the kind of place I would love to visit (minus the murder)! I enjoyed how the author brought the lodge and the characters to life in the pages. The mystery was fun, and there were lots of red herrings to keep me on my toes as the story progressed! I would recommend this for any cozy mystery readers!
Where to Find This Book:
Getaway With Murder is the first in a brand new cozy series from Diane Kelly set in a lodge in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where secrets hide behind every hill.
As if hitting the half-century mark wasn’t enough, Misty Murphy celebrated her landmark birthday by amicably ending her marriage and investing her settlement in a dilapidated mountain lodge at the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the old inn teetering on both a bluff and bankruptcy, she must have lost her ever-loving mind.
Luckily, handyman Rocky Crowder has a knack for rehabbing virtual ruins and for doing it on a dime, and to Misty’s delight, the lodge is fully booked on opening night, every room filled with flexible folks who’d slipped into spandex and ascended the peak for a yoga retreat with plans to namastay for a full week. Misty and her guests are feeling zen—at least until the yoga instructor is found dead.
With a killer on the loose and the lodge’s reputation hanging in the balance, Misty must put her detective-skills to the test. Only one thing is as clear as a sunny mountain morning—she must solve the crime before the lodge ends up, once again, on the brink.
