: A Twist in the Tail

Title: A Twist in the Tail

Series:(The Oyster Cove Guesthouse #1)

Author: Leighann Dobbs

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Rating: 3

 Talk about inconvenient. Not only did I have a dilapidated mansion and no money to repair it with, two cats I had no idea how to care for and a room full of cranky guests waiting for their breakfast, I also had a dead body on my hands.’

Josie Waters has to admit she may have acted a bit hastily when she agreed to purchase the Oyster Cove Guesthouse – a charmingly gabled Victorian mansion on the breathtaking Maine coast – from elderly family friend Millie Sullivan. But Josie was desperate to flee Ohio and in particular her ex-husband, a chef who loved his job so much he left her for it. And anyway, how hard can running a guesthouse be?

The truth is, Oyster Cove Guesthouse is a mouldering money pit with falling-in roof and a cohort of regular guests who are as mischievous as a litter of kittens. And Millie keeps dropping by to dispense unasked-for advice. And Josie might have made a mistake in promising to adopt Oyster Cove’s two resident cats Nero and Marlowe, and treat them in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed. Josie has never had a cat before… let alone two feisty felines who think they own the place.

Ok, it’s not going well. At least it can’t get any worse, Josie thinks. Until her first guest ends up dead.

 

My thoughts 

Would I recommend it? Yes

Would I read more of this series ? yes , in fact I have books 2 and 3 to read.

Would I read more by this author? Yes, in fact I thing I've read her books before and liked them way better then this one.

For the first to a new series I'm not sure how I like it, I mean come on I know its a cozy mystery and I love them , their my go to books when I want to just get lost in a story but this one was slow form the start and i just couldn't get into it at times, because of how the main character acted.But I did like the story way better then I thought I would just not the main character. with that said I want to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it
