Return to Pumpkin Falls

yours-truly-9781442471863_hrI like Truly Lovejoy.   She reminds me of mystery heroines I read when I was a kid – Nancy Drew, for one – but without some of the added baggage.  (Mainly Ned Nickerson.  I never warmed to Ned.) Truly is a swimmer, a poor knitter, and has a big family plus relatives, friends and local characters to keep her life interesting.  Truly is not some genius spy and often misreads situations, but she has a cell phone and some friends, so mysteries don’t need to stay that way, even if they’re more than a hundred years old.

It’s a quick and cozy read – no shooting, no violent stalkers, no evil villains out to take over the world.  But it’s a sweet break from reality, and one I was happy to take.
