Blog Tour: The Eggstone Murders by Herbert L. Smith

Cozy Mystery
Date Published: 7/2013

A thick-headed sheriff, a young, unsure, wannabe detective, and a savvy older criminal-turned-investigator, are only the beginning of the cast of characters included in this story of small-town life in southwestern Iowa, set in 1952.

Enjoy the storms, the intrigues and the mid-western hospitality – including the wonderful food –

of Hillville, Iowa as its down-to-earth folks work their way through the dailyness of their quiet lives.  There are the murders, of course, which cause dismay, but the con-man turned detective, Guy, is able to resolve them after a few bumps, and the guilty are punished – or, as is sometimes Guy’s choice, forgiven.

As a whole, it’s a pleasant outing on an Iowa summer’s day.

My Review:
I think that the genre really does capture this book perfectly. This is the type of book I would curl up by the fireplace with (if it were winter).

The plot was well paced and kept me engaged throughout. There were plenty of surprises and I was definitely guessing right up until the end. 

I think that it was a smooth and quick read that was easy to follow and didn't take a lot of deep thought.
