As my readers know, I like a good mystery. ‘Five Spot’ is a whodunit that leads you in one direction, then sends you into another, and finally has you confused until you hit the Five Spot.
Part-time sleuth Jessie and her police chief husband Wilson are at a Romance Novel Conference when one of her cohorts dies in the middle of an event. Although it seems like a clear cut murder, the victim who died is or may not have been the target.
How this situation is unraveled is quite funny. The characters clash in a humorous way but help bring about a conclusion the reader can live with.
Ms. Blackburn’s style has developed into one that I enjoy. It flows nicely keeping you laughing to the end. Using characters that have unusual likings for Romance novels, she has woven in a murder mystery that keeps you interested even if you don’t care for romance.
I recommend any of Ms. Blackburn’s novels. All have different twists, that are enjoyable.
