Review of Booked for Murder

Booked for Murder
Cee Cee James

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

When a murder happens in a hotel, chaos takes over via a police investigation. In this case, Cee Cee's protagonist is the newbie hotel manager and part-time mystery writer Maisie Swenson.

A convention is a backdrop of the case whose principal founder is floating in the pool lifeless. Maisie, her dog, and mother become secondary investigators, the dog finding evidence, the mother with platitudes, and Maisie with a nose for putting two and two together and getting to an answer.

Sometimes the answer is not right, and you end up with the short end of the stick. Maisie finds the solution and almost ends up in a body bag.

Cee Cee does an excellent job developing her characters and plot, keeping you guessing as to whodunit alone with Maisie. The novel is an enjoyable read and recommended for a rainy day which I finished reading while listening to stormy weather.

Good start for the Oceanside Mystery Series.
