Review of: The Unread Prophecy by Sam Bond
This cozy mystery novel (the 2nd in the Milkwood Murders series) is so much fun - I daresay it's even better than the first
?! (However, I loved the Puccini Connection - it contains more details about Josie's background and sets the stage for this book & others to come, so definitely recommend reading it). Even if you haven't read the 1st one, you can pick this one up and read it as a stand-alone - I don't think you'd have any trouble catching on to the characters and relationships. The author does a wonderful job of providing a Cast of Characters, map of the town, and other fun touches to help make this world come to life! I especially loved the humor in this book - smart & sassy but thankfully not overdone. The descriptions are amazing, and the author really has a knack for dialogue. You may find yourself talking with a British accent after reading a few chapters like I did, LOL!!! It's fast-paced and simply FUN. I also really enjoyed that this mystery focused on a group of writers which made me wonder a little bit whether some of them could have been based on people the author knows in her real-world writing circles?? Hmmm?? (Lol!) Adorable from beginning to end and just the right length!
