This is the first in Elizabeth Buzzelli's "Little Mystery" series, and it is delightful. Set in the town of Bear Falls, which I equate with Eastport, Michigan, the main character's mom has a Little Library in front of her house. Also, the neighbor is a "little person" who is currently obsessed with Alice In Wonderland. When Jenny Weston comes back to town to visit her mom, and to have a calm and soothing time, everything goes crazy! It begins with someone destroying the Little Library in front of her mom's house and a corpse showing up in a neighbor's garden. As Jenny, her mom and the neighbor try to discover who the vandal might be, they learn about themselves and each other, and also get put in some dangerous spots.— jill
Jenny Weston moves home to Bear Falls, Michigan, to nurse her bruised ego back to health after a bitter divorce. But the idyllic vision of her charming hometown crumbles when her mother's little library is destroyed.
The next-door neighbor, Zoe Zola, a little person and Lewis Carroll enthusiast, suspects local curmudgeon Adam Cane. But when he's suddenly found dead in Zoe's fairy garden, all roads lead back to her. Jenny, however, believes Zoe is innocent, so the two women team up to find the true culprit, investigating the richest family in Bear Falls, interrogating a few odd townspeople, and delving into old, hidden transgressions-until another body turns up.
Inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Elizabeth Kane Buzzelli's quaint and compelling series debut will delight cozy mystery fans new and old.
