Dy's Take

Delectable Mountains by Earlene Fowler

(a Benni Harper mystery)

Despite the quilts on the cover and the folksy art angle, these don’t read like cozies 🙂 I’ve managed to miss one in the series, the one immediately prior to this one, and will have to go back and read it.

I like watching the relationship Benni and her husband have evolve, and love the subtle, and not-so-subtle theme of redemption woven throughout.

It also had a dramatic climax with a low body count–I like that. Not every good mystery needs to read like a Bruce Willis movie…
