This is a very enjoyable and rather original cozy mystery.
And I do love a good cozy mystery! :-)
Deena is a like-able and believable main character. All the characters in this story are well developed.
The plot moves along at a fast pace, with plenty of twists and turns, but not too many, just the right balance.
I have read the second book and third book in this series: Sharpe Edge and Sharpe Mind and thoroughly enjoyed both of them too.
If you like a cozy mystery with some actual substance, originality and an older, wiser but still "with it" main character, check out this series.
One of the best I've read to date in this genre.
From the Amazon product page:
"Burned-out high school teacher Deena Sharpe is ready for a change. She has no idea a fifty-year-old murder case is about to turn her life upside down.
The Perry County Sheriff’s office has found a skeleton in the closet…literally. When they identify the man’s body fifty years after his disappearance, his family turns to Deena to uncover the truth about his murder. The clock begins ticking when she discovers a mysterious writer is about to implicate the victim in his latest conspiracy theory book. She must channel her inner super-sleuth to solve the puzzle and protect her family name. With the help of her off-beat brother and others from the cozy town of Maycroft, Texas, Deena takes on a quest that leads to more questions than answers.
Sharpe Shooter is the first book in the Maycroft Mystery Series. With antique shopping, car chases, and ghosts in the night, the story will keep you guessing as you follow Deena on her quest for the truth.
If you like a clean, cozy mystery, buy Sharpe Shooter today!"
