I receive a complimentary copy for the sole purpose of this review. All opinions are 100% mine.A Tale of Two Freddies: An Arnie & Zellie Cozy Mystery Arnie & Zellie Cozy Mystery Series) book 2
The corpse barely missed my head. No flying cadavers, just a new case falling into the lives of our intrepid unlicensed detectives. While in dogged pursuit of a killer, Arnie and Zellie navigate the tricky waters of a full-blown romance. Solvers of a single case, they need all of that experience and more to find the murderer. How the heck did the killer get the dead guy up there? And what’s the deal with two men having almost the same name? Did one of them kill the other? Did someone else?
Along the way, Arnie and Zellie encounter a real estate company with a dark side and its own enforcer, a building manager with a chip on her shoulder, and a cleaning company owner with a grudge. Not to mention a massage therapist doubling as a realtor, and a florist who may or may not have witnessed a murder. And how does the gruff but kind deli owner fit into it all?
Is it worth risking their lives to find out?
This book definitely keeps the readers’ attention. I love that this was a super quick and easy read. The storyline and plot twists kept me interested until the very end. You know how when you are reading most mysteries some of them are very predictable but I can honestly say that the outcome of this book shocked me. Seriously, I never saw it coming which is totally unlike me, normally I can figure things out.
I love how this book while being a mystery, still had a touch of romance. A romance based on friendship- showing that through anything you can endure. I mean honestly, all romances should have the foundation of friendship at the beginning.
I really enjoyed reading this book and would totally recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quick easy read, This book would be great to read on a rainy day curled up under a blanket because once you start reading you won’t be able to put it down.
