I give it ☆☆☆/5 stars.
Plot : Rowena has just divorced from her dumb husband William. While going through a pile of papers she comes across an inheritance from her great aunt Maude. The Morwen Cottage, located in Cornwall. Surprised at this turn of events, she decides to visit the property. Turns out that its situated in a beautiful place, and the residents there are doubly sweet. She quickly befriends her neighbor Mr. McGreevy, who makes her eat yummy dishes whenever she is in. To help her out with the cottage, she has Daisy and Simon who are again, super helpful and become like a family in just a matter of days. And then there is this handsome doc, Harry Reader, who she loses her heart to. Now while she is there, setting up her place, also wondering why she hasn’t had her periods in past few months, two women are murdered to everyone’s shock. Its unnerving and unsettling for everyone. And under suspicion is Dr. Reader too. What is happening? Who is killing these girls? Readers will find out when they read this novel.
My Thoughts: This was my first read from LeAnn L. Morgan. To be honest, I was attracted to this book due to the words, Cottage on the moors, and Murders. But I found both of them lacking. This book was 23% murder mystery, 23% romance, and rest of it was only meeting with people, knowing them, speaking sweetly and praising ALL the Time. Like literally. It was very clear that this book is the first attempt by the author. The book started off well, but in between, and till the end, it was just empty conversations. I was looking for some gripping mystery but that was missing and disappointed me to some extent. AND, to top it all, Rowena delivers a baby, without anywhere being mentioned about her pregnancy. I was expecting more of sensible plot twists but all I got was a big family reunion kinds feeling that at some point of time was a turn off for me.
This book was a decent try from the author but she really needs a better editor, and soon. To all the readers who love a quick finish light romantic mystery should go for this one.
