Review - Murder at Redwood Cove by Janet Finsilver

TITLE:    Murder at Redwood Cove
AUTHOR:    Janet Finsilver
INFO:    Paperback, Fiction, 198 pages
PUBLISHED:   Lyrical Underground, 2015
SOURCE:   Received from Publisher for Review

FROM GOODREADS:   Bed, breakfast…and a body!

If it weren’t for the fact that she’s replacing a dead man, Kelly Jackson would love her new job managing the Redwood Cove Bed and Breakfast on the coast of Northern California. But Bob Phillips did plunge off the cliff to his death…and Kelly’s starting to think it may not have been an accident. Bob’s retired friends—The “Silver Sentinels”—are also on the case, especially when Kelly is attacked…and another body turns up. Kelly has her hands full with overseeing the B&B’s annual Taste of Chocolate and Wine Festival, but she’s also closing in on the killer…who’s ready to send Kelly on her own permanent vacation…

MY TAKE:   I always enjoy a very well-crafted cozy mystery and this one is no exception. The author has created a town and setting that I'd love to be a part of and the characters that inhabit it are people I'd love to have in my life. It's my kind of place and my kind of story. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of them more in the upcoming stories.

The Silver Sentinels are fantastic - they had me cracking up and worrying about their safety all at the same time. Kelly has her work cut out for her in running the B&B and keeping this wily group in hand. Kelly is an easy to get attached to protagonist although I would have like a little bit more of a backstory on her. The addition of two young sleuths and an adorable dog just up the appeal to this lovely story. 

I stayed up and finished this book in one sitting. It was enjoyable and I highly recommend it to every cozy mystery fan and anyone looking for a good, fun story.
Out of 5 JEWELS, I give it:
Janet Finsilver and her husband reside in the San Francisco Bay Area. She worked in education for many years as a teacher, a program administrator, and a workshop presenter. Janet loves animals and has two dogs—Kylie and Ellie. She’s been involved in many activities during her life. Janet has ridden western style since she was a child and was a member of the National Ski Patrol. She’s traveled extensively. One of the highlights of her life was touching whales in the San Ignacio Lagoon. She enjoys cooking, and a recent attempt to reduce the number of cookbooks in the cupboard wasn’t very successful. She’s an avid reader—of course!   She’s currently working on the next book in her series scheduled for release in June 2016.
