In My Opinion
One of my favorite parts of a cozy mystery are the memorable supporting cast, and there is no shortage of these in Twisted Plots by Bonita Y. McCoy. Small towns mean the gossip grapevine is well-tended.
When one of Amy Kate Anderson’s business neighbors is found dead in his coffee shop after a fire, she takes on the role of investigator to clear the name of her friend. Sure, she does some fumbling along the way—especially when it comes to the handsome lieutenant in charge of the case.
Amy Kate may be small in stature, but she makes up for it in personality. I couldn’t help but appreciate how she stands by her friends, even when the evidence points toward her.
McCoy does a good job of balancing humor and smalltown life with the mystery (including plenty of suspects) throughout this book.
